LeBron James season ending injury hurts the LA Lakers

Unless you have been living under a rock you probably heard the story. LeBron ended Saturdays game with an upper ankle sprain. The timeline for his return is indefinite. The average timeframe for upper ankle sprains recovery is 3-4 months with extensive therapy. Some people with similar injuries can take up to a year to fully heal.

So , where does that leave the Lakers ? Are they still one of the top west coast teams to compete for the championship this year ? The Warriors seem to be a lost cause. When Kevin Durant left the team for the Brooklyn Nets they never been the same. Sure Steph Curry can score 45 points a game but he seems to be quite injury prone . Draymond Green certainly can’t keep that team afloat.

LA Clippers ranked number 8 as of last week in the NBA. I guess there is hope with Leonard and Paul George if Paul can keep his mouth shut for 2 minutes about lying refs. The LA Lakers stood at a strong ranking of number 5 last week . The number 1 ranked team in the NBA comes to no surprise. The Brooklyn Nets. The Brooklyn Nets have the dream team of Kyrie Irving , Kevin Durant and James Harden.

Without LeBron , the Lakers are doomed. I see their rank from number 5 fall drastically. Anthony Davis is also out on injury with an Achilles issue. Those two guys hold that team together. Sure their are some good players on that team but without LeBron and Anthony , that dream of a championship for the Lakers this year seems pretty far fetched.

I pray for a speedy recovery for LeBron. As I am sitting here writing this I come to realization that LeBron has two more years left on his contract and we are slowly seeing the decline of the GOAT in the NBA. Sorry Jordan fans , but LeBron has swooshed his way to the number one NBA player of all time. This is LeBrons third injury that leaves him off the court more then a couple of weeks. He had an ankle injury with the Miami Heat that left him out for weeks. His second big injury was two seasons ago with the LA Lakers as he suffered a groin strain that left him out from Dec through the rest of the season. This Saturday was injury number 3 that will have him out for the rest of the season.

Next season LeBron. Next Season !

Dak Prescott signs a 160 million dollar contract with Dallas Cowboys !

If you were holding your breath wondering where Dak Prescott’s career was headed you can now let out a sigh of relief.

Dak Prescott has just signed a 4 year deal with the Dallas Cowboys . Dak is expected to return to training camp in July. His recovery from his compound dislocated ankle fracture is going very well. He recently had to have a second surgery on that same ankle to make it a little stronger. Many people worried that the second surgery wasn’t a good sign but the Dallas Cowboys franchise reassured fans it was all preventive surgery and Dak has always been ahead of schedule with his recovery time.

I can honestly say I am sitting here smiling from ear to ear knowing my favorite quarterback is on the mend and will be back on the field for his fans in the fall. He will once again be joined with Eziekel Elliott and Amari Cooper . I am looking forward to next fall seeing Prescott’s return as he prepares for a championship !

LeBron James makes NBA All Stars Captain again 2021 !

LeBron has done it again !! He was named All Stars captain again ! This is LeBrons 18th season and he has been selected to participate in the NBA All Stars for 17 seasons total. It just doesn’t get better then that !

Kevin Durant has made All Stars captain for the east coast so I guess LeBron will not be able to choose him for his team this year like he did the last few years.

Kyrie Irving was also voted in as one of the starters for the All Stars . Since LeBron received more votes then Kevin Durant , he will get to choose his starter first. I am hoping he snatches Kyrie before Durant takes him.

Anthony Davis did not receive enough votes to play as a starter in the All Stars game but he can still make it in as one of the backcourt players depending on how the coaches vote .

For the west coast starters we have LeBron James , Steph Curry , Luca Doncic, Nikola Jokic and Kawhi Leonard. For the east coast starters we have Kyrie Irving , Bradley Beal, Kevin Durant , Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Joel Embid. Sounds like a great matchup !

Team Lebron !!!!!

Kyrie, Durant , Harden the perfect trio ! Nets defeat Warriors !

Brooklyn Nets defeat the Golden State Warriors ! I didn’t think the trio of Kyrie , Kevin , and James would be as spectacular as they were Saturday night , but they proved me wrong ! The Brooklyn Nets scored 134. The Warriors had 117.

James Harden is known to be a ball hog. Kyrie Irving is known to be a ball hog. Kevin Durant is known for just being a great all around player. However , Durant doesn’t like to be held back either and I was expecting the three of them to fight over who would be the king of the court.

This game proved me wrong ! Those three passed the ball and seemed to really connect on the court. Sure the Nets had more then a few turnovers in the game but they stayed steady as they were ahead most of the game.

What going on with the Warriors is my big question. Steph Curry is still dominating the game with his awesome 3 point shots , but I didn’t really see any of his other teammates play with the same enthusiasm. The Warriors seemed like rookies with their missed shots , stepping out of bounds and poor defense.

The Warriors haven’t been the same since Kevin Durant’s exit and Klay Thompson’s Achilles injury . Stephen Curry was definitely missing that other solid shooter . The greatness of the Warriors that we witnessed in 2017-2019 is long gone.

Congratulations Brooklyn Nets for another solid win. The Nets are sitting at number 3 in the Eastern conference and the Warriors at a steady 8 in the Western conference.

I am excited to finally see the Nets play the LA Lakers this coming Thursday night . However , as much as I love watching Kyrie , my heart is bigger for LeBron !

You can catch the Brooklyn Nets play against the LA Lakers this Thursday at 10 pm Eastern time on TNT!
