LeBron James keeps up on what is happening around the NBA and the Western Conference

While discussing his Los Angeles Lakers’ five-game losing streak Saturday, James bizarrely claimed that the only NBA teams not missing guys were “Golden State and Phoenix.”

“Nobody’s going to feel sorry for you, no one’s going to feel sorry for your record, nobody’s going to feel sorry for guys out because everybody, besides I think Golden State and Phoenix, everybody has guys out,” James told reporters after the Lakers’ Christmas Day loss to the Brooklyn Nets.

The Warriors did have Steph Curry and Draymond Green for the thrilling win over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, but Golden State is far from full strength.

Even if you exclude long-term absences like Klay Thompson and James Wiseman, the Warriors had Andre Iguodala out with a knee issue and had four players in COVID-19 protocol that were unable to play Saturday. Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, Damion Lee and rookie Moses Moody were among the dozens of NBA players who have entered into the league’s health and safety protocol.

The Lakers are without their second-best player in Anthony Davis, sure, but Klay is a five-time All-Star and Wiseman was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Factor in Wiggins and Poole, the Warriors’ second and third-leading scorers this season, and Golden State was among the more depleted teams competing on Christmas Day.

Considering how often LeBron Tweets about Warriors games and Steph Curry’s brilliance, you would think he’d remember how many guys were out of the team’s lineup for Saturday’s win.

Ja Morant Broke Internet As He Promises To Gift His Grizzlies Teammates A…

Here’s a new example of why Ja Morant is a pass-first player on and off the floor.

The fourth-year Memphis Grizzlies point guard signed a record breaking contract extension this off-season.

One of his goals with that newfound wealth is to buy his teammates Rolex watches.

Morant’s contract is a five-year deal worth $193 million. The deal could become worth $231 million if Morant makes an All-NBA team this season.

MEDIA TAKEAWAYSFive takeaway from Memphis Grizzlies media day: Santi Aldama, Ja Morant and more

“It’s just a matter of time,” Morant said of getting his teammates Rolex watches. “My bread got to kick in first. I’m still broke. Next year, when I get my money.”

Morant’s selflessness transitions to the court, too. He couldn’t name a player that’s surprised him through two practices because of how much he’s studying the game. Coaches and teammates have often raved about Morant’s gym-rat mentality.

Morant will sometimes be watching Desmond Bane’s highlights and text him with a compliment. This was also showcased in Morant’s YouTube series when he was watching film while on the sidelines at a Nike AAU game.

“I watch these guys probably more than they watch themselves,” Morant said. “Just to learn my teammates.”

Yes, even the rookies that don’t have NBA film yet.

“I study they college film and seeing where their spots at on the floor,” Morant added. “Now I know when I’m running the offense, where to put them exact guys at.”
Unselfishness, high I.Q. and work ethic are all attributes of a superstar player, and each has been exemplified by Morant.

Now that he’s an All-Star, second-team All-NBA player and one of the league’s top point guards, the next goal is a championship, he said.

“That’s all I got left to prove,” Morant said.

Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins has the challenge of unlocking every inch of Morant’s potential. The two came in together when Jenkins was hired and Morant was drafted in 2019.

Then, in response to the viral social media posts, Bronny posted a statement to let everyone know that the entire situation was blown out of proportion.

“I liked one of my best friend’s mom’s pictures. Y’all just childish,” Bronny said. Larsa Pippen then addressed the issue on Twitter with her own views. “Some of these stories are so disgusting the fact that my sons’ friends can’t like my pics without some ppl writing some weirdo shit is crazy,” Scottie Pippen‘s ex-wife tweeted.
