LeBron James is disappointed that the Los Angeles Lakers failed to acquire Kyrie Irving earlier this week. The Dallas Mavericks took the gamble when it acquired Irving from the Brooklyn Nets.
James and Irving had tremendous success as Cleveland Cavaliers teammates from 2014 to 2017, including three consecutive trips to the NBA Finals and a 2016 championship.
According to sports betting software platform experts, the Lakers’ season has been a struggle thus far. Also, Saturday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans was just the latest in a string of defeats that have left them in last place in the Western Conference at 13th.
LeBron James is Disappointed
Although the additions of James and Anthony Davis to the ‘Big Three’ were intended to usher in a new era of championship contention, the three has battled mightily as a unit this year. Also, Russell Westbrook has been demoted to the bench.
Despite losing on Saturday, the Lakers remain just 1.5 games out of a play-in berth and 3.5 games out of an automatic playoff spot because to the Western Conference’s remarkable tightness.
According to a betting software development company, James claims he is now solely focused on the Lakers’ existing squad and is not distracted by Irving’s departure to the Mavericks.
While the Lakers have been struggling, James has been on a tear. Also, he is on the verge of breaking the NBA scoring record.
On Tuesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder or Thursday against the Milwaukee Bucks, James will have a chance to surpass Kareem Abdul-total Jabbar’s of 38, 387 points. It is something he has yet to do.
According to pay per head bookie sources, Abdul-Jabbar has been the scoring king since he overtook Wilt Chamberlain in 1984. Also, he achieved the current record in his final NBA season in 1989.
