Lonzo Ball praises Julius Randle as Lakers' 'enforcer'

Lonzo Ball praises Julius Randle as Lakers' 'enforcer'

With his strong play, Randle is certainly going to be making the decisions this offseason for the Lakers more hard.

While James usually never delivers pessimistic remarks to reporters in terms of the future of his team, he seems to be skeptical of how much Cleveland can accomplish this season given the sheer number of injuries that the team has suffered. James, along with Paul George and countless other stars, has been tied to LA.

"Of course anytime something like that happens", Kuzma said last week, "you're always going to remember it". "It's not my first rodeo, but.it doesn't bother me".

"I was talking with Bron, he sets a really great example for how to take care of yourself".

"I don't need to show anybody anything", Thomas said. But I understand that the conversation happens here because, first of all, they have cap space. "So that's what also creates the frenzy".

Fans in Cleveland should not lose hope if James ultimately does opt out. And for the Lakers of all places? With teams switching everything on picks, it creates mismatches for a physically strong player to attack one-on-one.

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, James is considering four teams. He was the only Cleveland starter outside James to score in double-figures.

"(It) didn't just disappoint James as a basketball player. He can opt out of his contract with the Cavaliers and become a free agent after this season. I'm eradicating all conjecture and uncertainty!

Both teams have been riddled by injuries.

But James' main focus is to win titles, and with three rings he trails modern-era legends in championships, such as Michael Jordan (6), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (6), Magic Johnson (5), Kobe Bryant (5) and Tim Duncan (5).

The Lakers' exciting performance against Cleveland underlined that notion, for whatever it's worth in James' mind.

When asked what his biggest concern with the Cavs was, James said, simply: "Our injuries".

"He's a straight dog", Randle told ESPN about Thomas after the game.

The Lakers, however, may not neatly fit into his plans.

Korver, like James, did not want to label the Cavs at the moment. As a team, the Lakers shot 49 percent from the field and 14 of 35 from the three-point line as they fought hard to lead by three points midway through the fourth quarter until the Nuggets flipped the script with a decisive 9-0 run that would give the Nuggets the win.

It continues a tough season for the 2016 champions who now sit fourth in the eastern conference, with James admitting that injuries had taken their toll on the team.

With their drubbing by the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday night, the Cavaliers slipped to 6-6 since the trade day. Right now it feels a little low and a little dry.
