I agree with you KR and I am hoping Golden State doesn't win again this year and I also think the Raptors might make a run this year due to adding Kawhi Leonard

I think Lonzo Ball is the most intriguing player in the NBA. The Lakers can be a 1st round loser or win the whole thing depending on how he develops.

Lebron james dropped 44 points on the TrailBlazers and has moved to 5th place in the all time scoring list with 31,425 points and passed Wilt Chamberlain with 31,419

And who is #4? Michael Jordan with 32,292 points. So if he can keep the pace up of averaging say 25 points a game, he will pass Jordan in 35 games. I'm sure when he does that the who is the greatest of all time talk will start again

In my mind he will never pass Jordan as the greatest of all time no matter how many points he scores.

I agree with that and what a lot of people don't talk about is Jordan played in an era where you would get your head chopped off if you tried to drive in the paint and make a layup. Nowadays, if you breathe on somebody too hard you get called for a foul. If Jordan played in this era, he would have 10,000 more points. Exaggeration but you get my drift

Not sure if Lebron is thinking of this but he is roughly 14 games away from passing Jordan on the all time scoring list and if he averages 25 points a game, he may pass Jordan on January 13th when the Lakers play the Cavaliers.

Lebron James getting blasted by Lakers fans for his horrible defensive play last night and after last night's game, he is the only player to be in the top 10 for points and assists but what pissed a lot of people off was that he starting posting his accomplishments I guess in a way to cement his legacy?

He is also only 130 points away from passing Jordan on the all time points list.

A lot of fans are complaining Lebron ruined the Lakers this season by openly asking for Anthony Davis to come to LA and more or less dissing the rest of the team.

Not sure if anyone cars but LeBron James just passed Jordan for 4th on the all time NBA point list. He needed 13 points entering the game against the Denver Nuggets and so far he has 17 points in the first half.

I doubt the question will ever be resolved on who is the greatest of all time in the NBA, who I believe is Jordan hands down. James still probably has a few years left in him to possibly win another championship or two. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

This year has been a disaster for Lebron. He finally leaves the safety of the East and canít drag LA to the playoffs.  He took lesser teams in Cleveland to the playoffs.

The thing I love about McConnell is his pit bull mentality.  Late in games the Sixers bring him in and put him on the other teams best outside shooter and he locks on to them like velcro.

Just a side note...TJ's dad resigned as the highly successful boys coach at chartiers valley and took over the girls team this year. It gave him a chance to coach his young daughter as he did with all his boys.  CV girls are playing for the state championship this weekend :) in Hershey. TJ's uncle coaches the IUP womens team.
