In their first year with LeBron James in Los Angeles, the Lakers have endured a turbulent season to say the least.
The Lakers are currently 4.5 games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the eighth seed in the Western Conference and are in real danger of missing the playoffs altogether.
If the Lakers do miss the playoffs, or even if they don’t, it appears that this will be head coach Luke Walton’s final season with the team.
Luke Walton is just the next one in a long line of LeBron’s former coaches who have been the scapegoat for the team’s lack of success.
Walton had his work cut out for him coaching James, as he is only four years older than him and has a much less impressive resume.
Now James will get to handpick a new head coach to take over for Walton. If there is one thing that we already know about this new coach, it is that you are always on the hot seat when coaching LeBron James.
James Harden Accomplishes Rare Scoring Feat
James Harden is having another season for the ages, as it seems like every other game he is breaking another record.
Harden has now accomplished a new feat in tonight’s game against the Hawks, after pouring in 31 points in a 121-105 victory.
Harden has now dropped at least 30 points on every single team in the NBA this season.
There are some great players that have not even dropped that many points on each team throughout their entire career. The fact that Harden was able to hit that mark in one season, is truly remarkable.
In fact, there has never been a scorer in the history of the NBA that has matched Harden’s output this season.
This is another mark to add to Harden’s resume, as he makes the case to be the league’s back-to-back MVP.
Duke Wins the ACC Tournament, Zion Takes Home MVP
Zion Williamson’s return to college basketball went about as good as anyone could have anticipated, as the phenom freshman looked explosive throughout the ACC Tournament this weekend.
Williamson absolutely dominated throughout the tournament, leading Duke to the ACC Championship.
Williamson was named the MVP of the tournament following Duke’s 73-63 victory over FSU.
Prior to beating FSU, Duke upset UNC in a thrilling game that came down to the final possession.
Now that Duke has won the ACC, they look like the clear favorites to win the NCAA Tournament and are the biggest story in the sport.
That kind of expectation could be daunting for some teams, but Duke’s star player has a concise message for their mindset going into March Madness.
Right now, it seems like nothing will get in Zion’s way from bringing a championship back to Duke. Now it is time to see if he can deliver on that promise.
Zion Williamson Returns to Play for Duke
The biggest sensation in college basketball this year is back!
Zion Williamson was sidelined due to a freak injury after blowing out his shoes during a game last month, but has now returned to action.
Williamson’s return comes at the nick of time, as Duke is currently playing in the ACC Tournament.
Most players have some rust when returning from an injury, but that is surely not the case for Williamson as he just put up a ridiculous first half of basketball.
The NCAA Tournament begins next week and with Williamson in tow, expect Duke to be the favorite to win the tournament on most people’s brackets.
