LeBron James, great MVP favorite at 36: the best athlete in history at his age?

LeBron James | Best 5 NBA Players

LeBron James continues to silence the most critical of his game and defy the laws of the age. At 36 years old, many analysts and experts ventured the beginning of his decline. Something that has been happening for several seasons and to which the Lakers forward always responds in the same way: improving his performance and leaving the sports world speechless, which continues to explain the continuous improvement of a player who has already won everything and competing for the throne of history with the great legends of the NBA.

Big names that begin to surrender to the passage of a steamroller named LeBron. A player who does not understand limits and who after winning the most emotional ring in history signs some of the best numbers in his 18 seasons at the highest level. LeBron keeps the Lakers at the top of the NBA as the team with the best balance of the season and has done so with 25.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.4 assists and a steal in just under 33 minutes per game. Unique numbers in NBA history.

These figures and, above all, performances as he gave his teammates in the last game against the Cleveland Cavaliers (46 points, eight rebounds and six assists) you have been heavily involved in the fight to win the MVP and has even put ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Dončić as the favorite at bookmakers in Las Vegas: “people have to realize what it does as you get older that certainly plays in people’s minds at the time. to vote, “said Jeff Sherman, head betting the NBA for SuperBook.

Data that seem superhuman, especially if we take into account his age and the physical condition of an athlete who is not in a hurry to reach the downhill slope of his career. “I have not seen any athlete improve at 35 years. In any sport. It is impressive,” said Doc Rivers last season, when LeBron became MVP of the NBA Finals, something that only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had achieved with older. One of the legends of the sport that stand the comparison with Lakers forward as far as longevity and success is concerned.

The Atlanta Hawks fire Lloyd Pierce and Popovich warns: "They will regret it"

Coach Lloyd Pierce has been released from the Atlanta Hawks after two years in which he left a deficit of 63 wins and 120 losses, the Atlanta franchise announced on Monday, which is considering appointing assistant Nate McMillan to the position.

“We have high expectations for our team on the court and believe that by making this change we can now achieve a more consistent second half of the season with better results,” explained Hawks president of basketball operations and general manager Travis Schlenk.

Lloyd Pierce, 44, was hired before the 2018-2019 season.

Although the new season began with a balance of 10 wins and 9 losses, the Hawks have lost 11 of the last 15 games and are third in the Southeast Division, where the Miami Heat, their rival on Tuesday, is the leader.

Gregg Popovich, Pierce’s mentor at Spurs, warned of the mistake made by the Hawks with his decision: “We all know how volatile the environment is in the NBA and how short the deadline is for everything, but you don’t want to end up missing Someone like that. It’s like failing a good player in the draft or evaluating a player the wrong way. He’s the kind of person you want to build a franchise on. “

The Knicks (18-17) have the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference and have won seven of their last games.

Forward R.J. Barret had 21 points and reserve guard Alec Burks had 16 points for the New York team.

The Knicks never had a problem against the Pistons after reaching the break with an 11-point lead and extended it to 24 points in the second half.

The Pistons (9-25), worst in the Eastern Conference and second in the league, had power forward Jerami Grant as their leader after contributing 21 points and eight rebounds.

Reserve guard Wayne Ellington added 15 points and forward Josh Jackson, who also came off the bench, scored another 12 points, which were not a winning factor either.

The Detroit team has lost six of the last seven games and their coach Dwane Casey is beginning to be on the line.

The Los Angeles Lakers have achieved a safe blowout victory against the Golden State Warriors and with their second success in a row reclaimed second place in the west. LeBron James and Co. made it at 117: 91

Los Angeles Lakers – Golden State Warriors 117: 91

LeBron James’s working day was over after just 24 minutes, a low of the season for the King. The 36-year-old didn’t need any longer to get his Lakers onto the road to victory. LeBron got 19 points (7/12 FG), 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals and blocks.

Support was provided by five other Lakers players with a double-digit point yield, including Dennis Schröder. The German put on 12 points and 6 assists with a plus / minus value of +32 in just 25 minutes. Markieff Morris (13 and 8 rebounds), Kyle Kuzma (12 and 11) and Alex Caruso (13) also knew how to convince.

The Los Angeles Lakers offense rolled over the guests without mercy, and in the first quarter, L.A. had a 20-point lead, which grew to 29 points by the half-time break. The Warriors lacked the offensive power to keep up. From a distance, only 8 of the 34 attempts (23.5 percent) were successful, the guests only hit 40.7 percent from the field.

Stephen Curry couldn’t make his mark on the game either. He finished the game with 16 points (5/13 FG, 2/7 threesomes) and 7 assists, Eric Paschall was the top scorer of the Dubs with 18 points from the bench. Kelly Oubre Jr. still got 14 points, Andrew Wiggins (3, 1/5 FG) had a pitch-black day. In addition, Draymond Green twisted his left ankle in the second quarter when he landed unlucky on the foot of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. In the second half he was no longer able to play, but the game had long been decided.

In the first few minutes of the game, the Lakers indicated in which direction this game should go. The home side started the game 20: 5 and welded five threes through the trap in the first six minutes. A green dunk followed by a four-point game by Curry brought some life to the dubs in the middle of the section, but they couldn’t stop the Los Angeles Lakers.

With LeBron on the bench, Schröder led the reigning champion with some good plays. Ultimately, L.A. finished the first quarter on a 12-0 run, set a season high for most points in one run, and went into the second quarter at 41:21. From the guests’ point of view, there was no improvement there. The Los Angeles Lakers scored almost at will with good drives, Golden State remained cold. A deep buzzer beater from LeBron finally paused at 73:44.

Even after the break, the Warriors couldn’t manage to make the game exciting again. Los Angeles maintained its comfortable lead in the third section and even expanded it to 35 points. The fourth quarter turned out to be extended garbage time.

Center Damian Jones, who started his career at Golden State and recently signed a ten-day contract with the Lakers, made his debut for Purple and Gold (8 points, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks). Shortly before the end, Kostas Antetokounmpo provided a highlight with a cracking putback dunk. It was the end of the first Warriors bankruptcy after three wins in a row.
