LeBron James ignoring Luke Walton's playcalls, running his own instead

LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have sunk to several disgusting lows in a demoralising loss to the Denver Nuggets in the National Basketball Association. But the NBA now requires players to be at least 19 years old before entering the draft, resulting in many teenagers playing one season of college basketball before jumping to the NBA.

The Lakers have now lost back-to-back games while Denver have won four in a row.

The Indiana Pacers announced on Friday afternoon that All-Star guard Victor Oladipo has been ruled out indefinitely "as he continues to deal with a sore right knee", marking a potentially season-altering blow to a team that is now battling for a home playoff seed in the Eastern Conference standings. "I just tried to make plays". McGee had scored 12 points in each of the team's last three games against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, and Utah Jazz prior to Tuesday's contest.


James' Cleveland Cavaliers eliminated the Pacers from the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, going to seven games in the opening round a year ago.

Bojan Bogdanovic had 14 points for the Pacers, and Thaddeus Young added 11. The Indiana star could go through a full practice Friday. "I think we got proven scorers - Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram. and then when you have two point guards like Ball and Rondo, we don't have to have LeBron having the ball in his hands all the time". Lance Stephenson played five scoreless minutes.

Despite averaging a career-low in minutes, James is still averaging 27.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 6.7 assists in his 16th season. "People are going to be talking about us, but that's not how it's going right now".
