Clyde Frazier blasts LeBron James over demeanor during timeout

Adjust Comment Print

Luke Walton defended LeBron James after the Los Angeles Lakers star faltered in the final quarter of a 124-123 defeat to the New York Knicks on Sunday.

The NBA has become a superstar driven league over the past decade - arguably since the infamous "The Decision" special, with LeBron James announcing his intentions to join the Miami Heat. Didn't even get to the rim.

In a quarter which culminated in James having his would-be game-winning shot blocked by Mario Hezonja, the Lakers forward went 4-for-15 from the field in the fourth quarter, ESPN reported.

LeBron James and the Lakers are dreaming of some help in free agency before the start of next season.

"He just missed shots". "If you are saying that you are the reason that he is missing shots, you are an idiot".

Dolphins Trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for Draft Picks
Miami traded last year's starter Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, so it's in the market for a new face under center. From the Titans' end the move is probably a reaction, in part, to Marcus Mariota's constant healthy issues.

Actually, Hezonja was one of the reasons after getting the assignment in his return to the rotation after not playing since February 13, sitting out 12 straight games.

Kyle Kuzma had 18 points and Reggie Bullock added 14 for the Lakers, who have lost eight of nine and were swept in the season series by NY. His two free throws with 22 seconds remaining were the final points of the game. Kyle Kuzma had 18 while JaVale McGee added 12 points and 11 rebounds.

James is talking to a teammate, but it is Tyson Chandler, who has played five minutes in March and been inactive more than active in recent weeks. He became just the fifth player in the National Basketball Association this season with those defensive numbers, and first Laker in five years. Obviously, tonight we had our group that got us the lead. But, I mean, what's the difference between their record and our record? Two teams out of the postseason. So it's no difference. "The season's pretty much over so that's the only thing I can really do". James got the usual big cheers for an exciting play, but also the type of criticism he has rarely faced during his career. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that James has presented himself in a less than flattering manner on the bench.

Looking at the betting trends, the Lakers are 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games, 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games against a team below.400 and 1-7 ATS in their last eight games overall. It's about the details of closing games out once you have that lead. "He's earned the right to feel that out and take the shots he feels like are going to be good for him". LeBron today and obviously Kawhi (Leonard) tomorrow, so welcome to the league, kid, and this is what it's about. Asked if the Lakers moved the ball enough in crunch time, James said that indeed they did. He's signed for three more seasons, but questions persist around head coach Luke Walton and nearly everyone else on the roster's future.

Management, furthermore, is said to be dismayed by Walton's refusal to hire a seasoned former head coach as his top assistant - something young coaches (Walton is 38) frequently do.
