  2. Tony Walls on April 21, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Achilles is no joke. It’s the worst injury for an athlete. LeBron and Drummond is not enough. They need AD.

  3. ItsOnLy DiRt on April 21, 2021 at 2:01 am

    AD’s fine. He’s just not trying to have what happened to Durant in the Finals. He’s getting extra time to heal his injuries.

  6. BokJR In canada on April 21, 2021 at 2:09 am

  9. Joseph Of Israel on April 21, 2021 at 2:20 am

  10. G KICKS on April 21, 2021 at 2:20 am

    LJ RESTING FOR PLAYOFFS SMH NOT SLICK….

  11. pmonty jaaaymes on April 21, 2021 at 2:20 am

    I wanna see Devin Booker on the Lakers.

  12. Super gj7 on April 21, 2021 at 2:20 am

    “Bron and Brow” is messed up

  13. thisguy177 on April 21, 2021 at 2:21 am

    Anthony davis just has to get his legs stronger. he needs to build up his leg muscle, so his bones take less wear and tear. that’s probably why Lebron is so tank-like…. 6’9 260lbs.
    lebron is built to take those kind of bumps and bruises. AD isn’t fragile to say but historically alot of bigs don’t take injuries well. Look at embiid out for 2 years and even shaq, those guys AD’s height. they really need to be in tip-top shape. People like Lebron,Russell westbrook, randle,jae crowder,zion. all them guys are BUILT to take injuries well.
    when you jump and land awkwardly, it takes alot of impact directly to your joints but when your muscle takes most of the shock thats saving you. lebron is the perfect example of just that…if glass or wood will not break it bounces back off it. if your muscle works like that shock absorber your bones dont break.

  14. Positively Liberal on April 21, 2021 at 2:21 am

    The Lakers will repeat, next season they need to dump injury prone Anthony Davis and replace him with the Greek Freak, they will threepeat and then fourpeat !!!!!

  15. H h on April 21, 2021 at 2:22 am

    This didn’t age eell

  16. ysul on April 21, 2021 at 2:23 am

    Can’t count Lebron out

  17. thisguy177 on April 21, 2021 at 2:25 am

    nuggets are #4 GB-6
    lakers are #5 GB- 7
    with jamal murray out what do you expect. they will fall…..
    we wont drop past 5 if anything well move up to the 4 seed.

  18. Qdoosiii on April 21, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Lebron being injured is considered taking time off? Lol gah dam he can’t catch a break

  19. Urodium Excelsior on April 21, 2021 at 2:26 am

    AD is done!

  20. black mamba on April 21, 2021 at 2:27 am

    I’m concerned about the lakers period denver looks good for that to be a first round match up the road is difficult

  21. Chino Brown on April 21, 2021 at 2:28 am

  22. reformedaiiu on April 21, 2021 at 2:28 am

  23. E46325mod on April 21, 2021 at 2:29 am

    Lakers in 4th place now lol

  24. Leland Joseph on April 21, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Should be worried about your job.

  25. Cavarssia 1010 on April 21, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Bro they might as well sit out to the first game of the play offs

  26. Red King on April 21, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Kd has 3 of the top 6 players

  27. John Asante on April 21, 2021 at 2:33 am

    Didn’t Lebron have a "nice, long rest" in 2019?

  28. Rickie Simmons on April 21, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Steven A say’s Lebron very seldom miss games, what planet is SAS is on. AD had a serious injury and Lebron twerked is ankle. When I saw the injury to Lebron, I knew it was going to be a hollywood acting job with the rolling, slapping the floor and flipping chairs. All the time he’s wondering what are crowd saying and did they really see how he slapped the floor. That’s very important to an actor if you don’t know. Everyone caters and call him the king but there’s only one KING and he sits high and looks low. Also Lebron struggle to carry the team without AD so he dicided to stay out until AD comes back to help him. Watching on the sidelines he was walking pretty good but a good actor does that. He doesn’t have that Assassin’s or Mamba mentality.

  29. Yo To on April 21, 2021 at 2:37 am

    AD been out for a cool 2 months, he needed that after that long bubble season, he’s gonna be ready to feast

  30. Michael P on April 21, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Who cares about Steven A? I think ESPN needs better hosts.This guy thinks he knows it all. Bron is the GOAT Steven A is a peasant dwarf

  31. april aaron on April 21, 2021 at 2:40 am

    he is not hurt fakin the ankle

  32. Stevie Anderson on April 21, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Wrong wrong wrong. This time off will definitely hurt Lebron because of his age. Older players don’t need more rest, they need to be on the court as much as possible. Lebron is not the same player as he was a couple of years ago and he will continue to decline. He can’t take a game over like he once did. Davis is just soft as cotton and who knows what he is going to give them.

  33. Chris Delgado on April 21, 2021 at 2:45 am

    Lakers easily second round exit if AD and Lebron aren’t at least 85% healthy come playoff time. People forget AD had to really go above and beyond in the playoffs for them to win it all.

  34. Chris Williams on April 21, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Lebron should just trade AD for steph, giannis, Luka, Joel embiid, prime Shaq and kobe, prime Pippen and mj and wilt chamberlain. Because we know lebron always NEEDS MORE HELP

  35. Truth Trurh on April 21, 2021 at 2:49 am

    AD has some problem with his heel which would take a long time to recover

  36. Ubaldo Contreras on April 21, 2021 at 2:50 am

    They both are soft they cry for everything

  37. Crimson _Crusader on April 21, 2021 at 2:51 am

    Well I am concerned about Drummond. Guy had a splendid game in Brooklyn but didn’t show up the last 2 games

  38. DJCal_Z on April 21, 2021 at 2:52 am

    MGasol shoots 3s can score inside got 1 ring vs ADrum 0 ring cant shoot … better?

  39. Deeno on April 21, 2021 at 2:53 am

    Nuggets lowkey chalked they just lost Jamal Murray

  40. Nick Huang on April 21, 2021 at 2:54 am

    NETS IN 4

  41. Gloria Wilson on April 21, 2021 at 2:55 am

    AD is out for the season. Stop dreaming!!
