LeBron James vows return to playoffs after disappointing season

LeBron James vows return to playoffs after disappointing season

It is hard to fathom that a team would not give up more than that to bring a superstar of his caliber to their market.

Post-All-Star break, James returned to action but was reportedly playing at a much heavier weight than he was accustomed to throughout his career (around 280 pounds).

Andre Ingram, 33, made headlines that spanned beyond the sports world when he got his first opportunity to play in an National Basketball Association game last April, after spending 10 years grinding away in the NBA's development league. Averaging almost 28 points per game in the first four games following the break, Ingram was just recently diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis in his right arm - which occurs when a blood clot forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body.

According to Second Spectrum data, Ingram averaged 1.15 points per direct isolation play since January 28, when the Anthony Davis trade demand put his future with the Lakers into question.

"We've released what he's got going on, but I'm not going to get into all the details, " Walton said.

LeBron James of the Lakers insists he will return to the playoffs soon.

The Pelicans reportedly blamed the Lakers for leaking Anthony Davis trade-talk details that went insane and began the Lakers descend into the pit of the Western Conference. "I'm just finding out a lot of it myself. How do you go to the next free agent and say, 'We really want you, ' and have him believe you after you had the face of the league for six months and then traded him away?"

Forward Kyle Kuzma has also been plagued with ankle issues in the latter half of the regular season, missing multiple games in the process. James also missed 18 games earlier this season after suffering a groin injury on Christmas.

He added: "Obviously, I would love for the team to be in the postseason". Our chances are slimming down each and every game.

Getty The L.A. Lakers considered trading LeBron James according to reports.

The Lakers, 30-35, have lost five consecutive games and are now tied for 10th place in the Western Conference, 6.5 games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the final spot in the playoff picture.

"I'm very, very motivated", Ball told The Athletic.
