#Sixers’ Georges Niang (sore right foot) and Tyrese Maxey (fractured left foot) will miss tomorrow’s game vs. the Lakers while Danuel House Jr (lacerated left foot) is questionable. L.A.’s LeBron James (sore left ankle) and Anthony Davis (Non-COVID-19 illness) are probable. – 9:11 PM

Speaking on 1280, Utah AD Mark Harlan indicates Utah is getting more tickets from the Rose Bowl.
I was told earlier this week the initial allotment combined to the Pac-12 Conference and Utah is roughly 29,000. – 6:16 PM

You may have seen *but* LeBron and AD are probable tomorrow against Philadelphia. pic.twitter.com/COatS8mKLt5:34 PM

Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
The Lakers’ back-to-back losses in Cleveland and Toronto were justifiable given AD missed all but eight minutes, LeBron missed a game and both opponents are good (especially at home).
But it also underscored LA’s need to find size on the trade market: theathletic.com/3980899/2022/1…5:09 PM

Donovan Mitchell is leading a Cavs team that has the 3rd best record in the East.

O.G. Anunoby has now jumped Giannis Antetokounmpo for the second best DPOY odds on @BodogCA. Brook Lopez is even odds to win it followed by O.G. at +500. Then Giannis at +550 and Anthony Davis at +1,000. – 9:14 AM

The New Orleans Pelicans are now the No. 1 seed in the West with a 16-8 record. Because of the 2019 Anthony Davis trade, the Pelicans also control the Lakers’ first-round pick, which currently has the 6th-best odds of landing Victor Wem– uh, the No. 1 pick. pic.twitter.com/zvz8K0czQ58:07 AM

What if one of the greatest NBA players & the winningest European coach went shoulder to shoulder in one NBA team?
Derrick Williams tried to pair up Zeljko Obradovic & LeBron James:
“We would get a bunch of the IQ. They would make the game so much easier for everybody else.” – 3:50 AM

Can’t wait for the “Rafael Devers for 5 prospects” trade. That’s next. Let’s keep cutting those costs for 2024 so you can sell the Red Sox and redirect the $$$$ for the Vegas/NBA expansion team with LeBron, guys. – 12:47 AM

More on this storyline

Lakers coach Darvin Ham said after the game that Davis was the only player on the team currently suffering from an illness. “It progressively got worse,” Ham said of Davis’ sickness. “His temperature went over a 100, I believe it was 101 and some change. He said he was going to try and give it a go, which he did. But he just felt too weak, just too drained — dehydrated a little bit. But it’s that time of the season, in terms of wintertime, weather change, change of climate — coming from L.A. going to these different places.” -via ESPN / December 7, 2022
LeBron James and Zeljko Obradovic’s duo could only spark the European basketball fans’ imagination. Panathinaikos Athens forward Derrick Williams had the privilege to work with both on both sides of the Atlantic. Before getting coached by a nine-time EuroLeague champion Obradovic in Fenerbahce (2019-2020), he represented the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second part of the 2016-17 season when LeBron led the group to the NBA finals. “We would get a bunch of the IQ. A lot of IQ about the game. They would make the game so much easier for everybody else. That’s the main thing I’ve got from both guys,” Williams tried to imagine Zeljko’s and LeBron’s duo in the NBA. “Obradovic is so detailed about the game. Offense, and defense, we were always constantly studying the game and film. The film does a lot. Regardless it’s good or bad, I think you can always learn from the film,” Williams said in an interview with BasketNews. -via BasketNews / December 8, 2022
Regarding LeBron, Williams shared a story that speaks a lot about his ability to read the game. “It’s been times when I’ve been on the court with him, and the other team is calling plays. And he saw his guard was in the wrong position. He knows exactly where he is supposed to be. And he says, ‘Hey man, you’re supposed to be on the other side. You’re not on the right play right now’,” Williams laughed. “The level of IQ that he has, knowing other teams’ plays, while they are calling plays, it’s just been a step or two ahead like in chess,” he continued. “That’s the main thing I’ve learned from these two guys. It’s always been able to be a step ahead.” -via BasketNews / December 8, 2022
