    So Stephen A "reserves the right to change his mind" but Max can't? I don't want to hear anything about Max and the cliff or Kawhi again. And Max needs to stop being so soft and call him out for being so weak.

    The reality is, LeBron is 36. He's slightly bigger than Deontay Wilder, he's injured small muscles in his ankle, father time is catching up. That huge frame has become liability. He can't play a full game. Maybe three quarters right now. If LeBron says he might not be the same again, believe him. The Raptors killed them and they didn't even have OG, Fred and Trent

    Back "before" LBJ got hurt -when AD first got banged up my feeling was that they were done back then. AD is fragile (no disrespect intended because some people just cant help it) that said - LBJ was playing too many minutes! I felt bad for the Laker coach because I know that he wanted to cut LBJs minutes back then big time. But LBJ was not sitting down for nobody. Now LBJ is hurt. And if that ankle sprain is anything like it possibly could be, LBJ is probably going to need months to fully recover. I wish both of them well. Just an opinion.

    I predict that LeBron is about to hit that one moment in life where his body just falls apart. "I'll never be the same" with a HIGH ANKLE SPRAIN. But let keep it 1000, he only walked off the court and didn't return because he was having a hissy fit about the way the game was going. And even more at the way AD was struggling. Isn't the first time we see him give up on a team. Wouldn't put past him to go join the Sixers or Nets soon..
