“Magic” Johnson who is the Lakers President of Basketball Operations, and Rob Pelinka who is the Lakers General Manager announced: “After consulting with our team doctors and medical staff, we have decided to hold LeBron out of games for the remainder of the season. This decision will allow his groin to fully heal, and is best for the future success of both LeBron and the Lakers.”
In order to show support of his teammates, The King will join the team in it’s next 2-game road trip.
It seems like King James’ injury was a lot serious than we thought.
Not long after the Los Angeles Lakers were out of the playoff race, Dr. Karen Joubert, owner of Joubert Physical Therapy in Beverly Hills, shared a picture standing next to Lebron with an unexpected caption – Karen praised him for his willingness to return to action although he was suffering from pain.
Lakers fans are trash. He should have sat out the whole season. I wonder how many of you idiots are going to call this woman a liar. pic.twitter.com/GcZ9HJFj0O
“I want you all to know how bad his injury was and is, the pain he endured,” the doctor wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Along with his amazing trainer, Mike Mancias, he was on the court in 6 weeks, it should have been 6 months. Unselfishly, he endured pain, pain, pain. He did not want to let the Lakers down, the fans down. But I know what he went through! I learned about determination, the will to win, how to get the job done. He is a force to be reckoned with. @kingjames @mikemancias1.”
Lebron returned to action late in January and carried the Lakers to a win over in overtime on the Clippers. James said “I am at 80 (percent) right now… it will take him a little time to get back”.
One of the hottest topics in all basketball is the question – Who is the greatest basketball player to ever play the game? The two names that pop to mind are Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
As we speak, James doing his best to break MJ’s scoring record and take his place (4th) in the highest scoring list.
LeBron, who entered his 16th season, puts up the work and show every night why he deserves the title as the Greatest of All Time (The G.O.A.T).
But apparently, this feud doesn’t stay solely on the court. James, known for his businesses in the media industry just announced on the NBA all-star weekend about his new project – Space Jam 2.
Why is it such an issue you ask?
For those of you who not familiar with the ’90s hit Space Jam, you might want to check who is the leading role there… I will give you a clue – He played for the Bulls… (Yes, it’s Michael Jordan!)
James will have the leading role in Space Jam 2 as well as being one of the producers.
SpringHill Entertainment (LeBron is one of its co-founders), announced On Sep 18 that the Black Panther’s director, Ryan Coogler, has signed to produce the movie, alongside Terence Nance, who confirmed as the project’s director.
