/ No Comments
NBA – The defending back to back NBA Champion the Golden State Warriors host the visiting LA Lakers for their third and final matchup of the 2018 – 2019 NBA Regular Season at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. 


The Warriors are trying to bounce back to the winning column after losing to the Philadelphia 76ers in their last game and get their revenge to the LA Lakers in a humiliating loss on Christmas Day.

As expected the Warriors start strong in the game posting an early double digit lead in the early quarter but the Lakers made their own run in the 2nd and 3rd quarter to grab their biggest lead of 9 points.

The Warriors made a late run in the 3rd quarter and carried the momentum in the 4th and final quarter of the game to dominate the Lakers with less LeBron James in 115 – 101 win at home.

Warriors Klay Thompson leads all scorers with 28 points, Kevin Durant added 21 points while Stephen Curry exploded for 12 points in the final quarter after having only 2 points in the first 3 quarters.

Brandon Ingram leads the Lakers in scoring with 20 points, Kyle Kuzma added 13 points in another disappointing loss with no LeBron James in the game who is suffering from a sore. Lakers are now in 10th place in the West Standing 2 games behind from making it to the playoff bracket.

Meanwhile, Defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors improve their standings to 37 wins and 15 loss currently tied with the Denver Nuggets at 1st place in the West Standing while the Lakers drop to 27 wins and 26 loss.

LeBron James has already missed his 18th game of the season the most in his NBA career. He was out for the 17th straight game due to groin injury and after making a comeback from their last game against the LA Clippers in overtime win he was ruled out again due to soreness.

Will Kyrie Irving reunites with LeBron James in Lakers uniform?

/ No Comments
NBA – Rumors are spreading around the National Basketball Association (NBA) involving a possible team up of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James and his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate and now Boston Celtics franchise player Kyrie Irving. 


Rumors spread when Kyrie Irving called LeBron James and then apologize for his mistake for being naïve during their stay in Cleveland which he later admitted in public.

This coming summer, Kyrie Irving will become a free agent where he could possibly sign a maximum contract for any team. This could be the best chance that he could reunite with James for another possible run in the NBA Finals or stay in Boston to prove that he is the man and own his own team.

As we remember during the 2017 summer, Kyrie Irving demanded a trade from Cleveland after knowing that the Cavs ownership and management doesn’t want him to stay?

Meanwhile, LeBron James was suddenly becomes the scapegoat of Irving’s demand trade where all the blame was thrown at him for not stopping Irving from leaving Cleveland or was even reported that Irving doesn’t want to team up with James anymore?

But all of that rumors are finally ended when Kyrie Irving break his silence and admitted that it was him who become naïve not realizing that days what James is doing for the team to become successful.

Kyrie and LeBron together with Kevin Love formed a Big Three in Cleveland, where they reach 3 straight NBA Finals together and becomes an NBA Champion in 2016 where they ended a 52 year drought in Cleveland, when Kyrie left, James and Love reach another NBA Finals appearance but swept by the mighty Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals which they badly missed the services of Irving.

Though all of this is all for the past and this is now the present will the two superstars reunites again in LA? Let see and wait this summer?
