Lebron James last night surprisingly played and made his presence felt in a big way.
James had 24 points and 14 rebounds in his return from a 17-game injury absence, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Clippers 123-120 in overtime Thursday night after blowing a 14-point, fourth-quarter lead.
While Lebron has been out, dominating the headlines is the trade request Anthony Davis made public in the beginning of this week. Not only that, Davis' agent Rich Paul, made it known that the preferred landing spot is the Los Angeles Lakers. After the game Thursday, LeBron was asked about the chatter surrounding Davis and the Lakers.
There ain't nothing to talk about," James told McMenamin when asked about the uncertainty some in the locker room could feel. "That ain't nothing but fantasy basketball until something happens. We will see what happens."
In December, James made his infamous comments about how amazing it would be to play with A.D.
