Clippers deal with skidding Lakers

Patrick Beverley Clippers

In fact, LeBron James might be more likely to play alongside the Duke star than he is to compete in the 2019 National Basketball Association playoffs.

The Lakers management are letting LeBron call the shots, at least that is what the reports suggest.

The Lakers' season is unraveling, and LeBron James seems to have one eye on the wine list.

There are myriad reasons why L.A.'s season has derailed to the point of their 10th place standing in the West, 4.5 games back of the No. 8 seed, with only 18 games to play. I'll give the Lakers one more chance. Big, big key guys. "He's going to be much better in a year or two than he is now, but he's good now". That's just the way this season has been.

Lonzo may want to consider deleting that tweet, but I personally hope he keeps it going forever. We've had guys step up. "There is just no way and if you're playing with him and know this guy tried to trade you there is no way that's not weird".

Woods withdraws from Arnold Palmer over neck problem
Tiger announced in a pair of tweets that he would be withdrawing from the Arnold Palmer Invitational, citing a neck strain. The 14-time major champion says his previously troublesome lower back is unaffected and he has no long-term concerns.

This would be the first season that James misses the postseason since the 2004 season in Cleveland.

Already reeling after an inexcusable loss to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, the Lakers lost Brandon Ingram to shoulder soreness on Monday morning and Kyle Kuzma to an ankle injury on Monday night. "Seeing him roll his ankle on a non-contact was definitely tough." he added.

Following their loss against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, the Lakers are 30-34 for the season and are 5.5 games behind the San Antonio Spurs, who now occupy the eighth and final playoff berth in the Western Conference standings.

The only time it has been profitable to bet on the Lakers this season is when they are on a losing streak. LeBron played 42 minutes against the Clippers and was asked after the game about possibly scaling back those minutes as the Lakers fade from the playoff picture.

Earning a better draft pick in this year's NBA Draft could go a long way in accomplishing that, perhaps attaching the pick to a couple of this team's young core would be enough to make this team significantly better.
