Pacers beat LeBron’s Lakers and Steph’s Warriors on back-to-back nights minus Myles Turner in both games and all key cogs except rookie Chris Duarte missing at Golden State. By mandate, Rick Carlisle is now the greatest coach ever. Duarte is back in ROY race. These are the rules. – 1:01 AM

Last month, the Lakers made a philosophical change to embrace small ball. But it was designed to unlock the best version of LeBron James; Russell Westbrook was left to figure out his own role.
That laid the foundation for where the Lakers are now: ocregister.com/2022/01/20/how… – 5:01 PM

If LeBron James finishes at the top All-Star vote-getter, it will be his 9th time doing so which would tie Michael Jordan for the most in NBA history.
LeBron’s All-Star voting leads:
2007, 2010, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 – 2:33 PM

Just had an interesting conversation: how many 2021-22 Lakers would you definitely want back on next year’s roster?
I have five definites: Bron, AD, Reaves, Monk and Stan.
Three maybes: Melo (age), Nunn (health), THT (would rather trade). – 2:31 PM
