Earl K. Sneed: Josh McRoberts got in an individual workout after @Dallas Mavericks practice at Marquette University on Thursday.
James, however, insists this isn’t a case of conserving energy because of his heavy workload. In fact, he made it clear he believes the whole idea is ridiculous. 11. “Tell them to track how tired I am after the game, track that shit,” James said. “I’m No. 1 in the NBA on how tired I am after the game.”
Kuzma has been working out at the Lakers’ practice facility for the past three weeks, doing two-a-days hitting the weight room and basketball court. And Kuzma hasn’t been alone. Kuzma, who has added noticeable muscle, says Lonzo Ball has been in the weight room as well. “Consistency in the weight room, that is the biggest thing,” Kuzma said on Tuesday of what he has seen out of Ball this offseason so far. “He has been in there pretty much every day I have been in here around this time. You can tell he is taking the weight room a lot more serious and that is going to help him by allowing him to recover faster and hopefully next year be on the court more because of that weight room.”
David Aldridge: Postgame, @KlayThompson says his knee is sore but he expects to play in Game 5 Thursday.
But to understand the 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of Miami, you must first understand where he comes from. For Walker, everything traces back to Reading, Pennsylvania, the beleaguered little city that sits an hour northwest of Philadelphia and recently ranked as the nation’s poorest city. “You’ve got two directions,” Walker said of growing up in Reading. “You’ve got the left lane, which is drugs, violence, alcohol, gangs. You’ve got the right lane, which is when you surround yourself by intelligent people and continue to proceed as a man on and off the court. I chose that right lane.”
“I had friends who continued to push me and drive me into being a great man,” Walker said. “And also, my father always instilled academics. I used to come home and read for an hour and write for an hour. So academics have always come first, and basketball was always second. I really didn’t start taking basketball serious until my sophomore year, beginning of junior year.”
Lonnie Walker talks about the ocean and he doesn’t think the earth is flat but he has a theory that the earth is ‘an illusion’... care to explain some more, @lonniewalker_4 ?
Emiliano Carchia: Timberwolves big man @Karl-Anthony Towns says he “would like to play for Dominican Republic again at some point”. Last time Towns wore the Dominican colors was at the FIBA AmeriCup 2013. #FIBAWC #ThisIsMyHouse pic.twitter.com/pGHYJtjGV4
