LeBron James is one of the top three conservative NBA players of all time. Benedict Mathurin is a rookie guard whose greatest accomplishment in basketball was being named a Second Team All-American while attending college in Arizona.

There shouldn’t be any particular interest in a matchup between the living legend and the No. 6 overall pick in the 2022 draft. Still, an offseason comment from Mathurin made some headway as the Indiana Pacers traveled against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

In a Washington Post story in June before the draft, Mathurin essentially called out to James when he tried to talk about his confidence going into the league.”A lot of people say he’s great. I want to see how good he is. I don’t think anyone is better than me. He needs to show me he’s better than me,” Mathurin said of James.

On Tuesday, Mathurin’s Pacers met James’ Lakers for the first time. The Lakers should be a team that could go deep into the playoffs this year, while Indiana should be among the worst teams in the league. Instead, the Pacers would have a home-field advantage if the NBA playoffs started today.

The Lakers would end the year as one of the league’s worst teams and have to decide against the New Orleans Pelicans as part of the Anthony Davis trade. -Points behind in the fourth quarter. The Pacers’ comeback was capped off by a game-winning buzzer-beater from Indiana’s other rookie, Andrew Nembhard, in one of the most exciting ending sequences you’ll see all season.

Meanwhile, Mathurin also took on James. The rookie finished with 23 points and eight rebounds while LeBron finished with 21 points and seven rebounds. Garbage talking to LeBron is usually silly, but Mathurin supported him. Best of all, his Pacers took the win.

Mathurin has been phenomenal as a rookie so far. He averages 19.1 points per game on 41.7% of shots from the 3-point range. There have been many impressive rookies so far, but the Rookie of the Year race will likely be on Mathurin vs. No. Paolo Banchero is the first overall pick.

Some people mocked Mathurin’s confidence when he called out LeBron before the draft, but he’s had his back so far. The Pacers have an impressive young backyard to build in Mathurin and Tyrese Haliburton. In the new and severe rivalry between LeBron and Mathurin, the first round goes to the rookie.

These Kings have fangs. In other campaigns, they have had good players, but the mentality they are showing in this campaign has not been known to them for a long time. Last night, receiving a Grizzlies without Ja Morant, they took advantage of that absence to muscle up and win with the emphatic that reflects the final score: 133-100.

The Californians dominated the game almost at all times, but it wasn’t until the last quarter that they dealt a final blow that is measured by a 33-10 run. They swept Memphis for 12 minutes in which the Tennessees had no response to what was coming their way.

“It was a great victory for the whole team. I think in the second half we were really good defensively,” says Mike Brown, the coach who is getting closer to returning Sacramento to the playoffs after 16 years of absence.

To achieve the aforementioned milestone, Brown has a large group of players of a very good level. Against Memphis, Domantas Sabonis had a triple-double of 14 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, Trey Lyles had 24 points off the bench, rookie Keegan Murray went to 20 points, and Harrison Barnes had another 20 (15 of them in the first quarter).

Although the Kings did not leave the game sentenced until the last quarter, it was in the first that they left some mark on history. With 12 triples, they matched the most that had been achieved to date in such a space of time. Such offensive capacity led them to 47 points. The reality is that everything seems to be going well for those from the California capital, who have won seven of their last eight games to settle in third place in the Western Conference.

It was clear that the time would come when the Grizzlies would have to slow down a bit. More than accommodated in the second position of the West, it is time to regulate efforts and take care of its essential pieces; and of course, there is none like Ja Morant. The point guard was absent last night and his team noticed it despite Jaren Jackson Jr.’s 19 goals and Desmond Bane’s 21. In any case, the team’s head coach, Taylor Jenkins, understands that it’s just a defeat and that they must keep gritting their teeth always thinking about the next game.

“We have to focus on getting better and doing better against Golden State. You just have to continue playing hard and be together while we find our rhythm, “he says.

As one of the nerve centers of Los Angeles entertainment, the Crypto.com Arena is no stranger to fans trying to get the attention of the stars. The most famous case in recent years was that of Rihanna and Laker Alex Caruso.

That video also went viral in NBA circles and on social media. But it is not every day that LeBron James stars in one of these episodes.

During the last game that the Los Angeles Lakers played at home, a fan in a courtside seat fixed her gaze for several seconds on the four-time MVP. LeBron seems to ignore her until, noticing her presence, he crosses glances with her.

This prompted nervous laughter from King James and silent rejoicing from the fan, who continued to smile at him.

Whether or not James and the blonde fan exchanged glances or this was a coincidence remains to be seen, but social media users have been having fun with it anyway.

Perhaps Savannah James, LeBron’s wife of ten years and high-school sweetheart, isn’t smiling so much.
