It was one of James’ last games before he was put into the NBA’s health and safety protocols because of a positive coronavirus test. James would later have subsequent negative tests that allowed him to return to the team.
When James hit the shot against the Pacers, he imitated Sam Cassell’s “big balls” 舞蹈. Abdul-Jabbar said someone like James shouldn’t be doing those kinds of celebrations.
“为了我, winning is enough. Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance,” the Basketball Hall of Famer said in a SubStack commentary video 在星期三.
James earned a $ 15,000 精细.
The Lakers have struggled this season with a group of veteran players who still have to get used to each other’s style of play. It also didn’t help that James missed a few games due to injury.
The Lakers are 4-6 in their last 10 游戏.
