Katy Winge: In case anyone was wondering, this is what Nikola Jokic says in his recording for the @AltitudeSR starting lineup: “Nikola Jokic…number 15…position – whatever you want me to do…school – uhhhh Harvard.” You can’t make this stuff up.
LeBron James is now $100 richer … and it’s all thanks to a mid-game bet he made on an insane no-look 3-pointer with teammate Dennis Schroder!! The Lakers were already easily handling the troubled Houston Rockets early in the game Tuesday night … holding a 21-point lead through the first quarter. But, the real fun started a few minutes into the second, when Schroder yelled out a proposition to Bron to nail a wide-open corner 3 ball for $100. “Bet a Benjamin on it!” Schroder said from the bench a few inches away.
Naturally, LBJ pulled up, took the shot, turned around and looked Schroder dead in the eyes and said “BET!!” before the ball even made its descent to the hoop. Of course, the ball hit nothing but net, and the Lakers bench went absolutely bonkers!!
Chase Hughes: Robin Lopez was asked if the Wizards will do wrestling moves pregame like he did last year with the Bucks, he said he’s “been neglecting the thespian hemisphere” of his brain. Also, probably can’t do that during Covid. League protocols and all.
