LeBron James He assured this Monday that this season was the hardest of his entire career. Now, the eaves of the Lakers has one more reason to think about it: just entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols against COVID-19 and I know how to miss several games, starting with the Kings this very morning. So far I was averaging 25.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists.
This new obstacle adds to its injury to abdominal muscles that made him low for eight games and skirmishes with Isaiah Stewart, player of the Pistons, which cost him a penalty match. With this new absence against Sacramento, LeBron, at 36, already missed 71 games in the last four seasons, the same as in the first 15 of his career. Only in this course he has already been 12.
On a collective level they are not doing too well either. The Lakers have yet to find consistency this season. They are seventh in the Western Conference with a balance of 11-11 and the adaptation of the stellar pieces of Carmelo Anthony y Russell Westbrook with LeBron and Anthony Davis it is costing them. So much so that the coach Frank Vogel begins to be questioned and his position is hanging by a thread.
Angelenos have fallen to opponents who were theoretically inferior, including Kings who already recently beat them 137-141 after three overtime. Now they will see each other again, but without LeBron, who has taken another stick. And there are quite a few this season.
