Chris Broussard weighs in on LeBron, Lakers struggles with AD sidelined | NBA | UNDISPUTED

The Los Angeles Lakers have hit a few roadblocks since Anthony Davis went down with a calf injury on February 14th. In a loss to the Heat in a Finals rematch this weekend, LeBron scored 19 points on 7-for-21 shooting, including just 1-for-8 from 3-point range, accounting for his worst shooting percentage of the season. Ric Bucher joins Chris Broussard and Lavar Arrington to discuss LeBron and Lakers recent struggles.

    This excuse about ad being not on the floor did we not see LeBron without ad not even make the playoffs so how is this news. So all the MVP talk has to stop. look I'm not taking anything away from LeBron and what he's doing this late in his career but it's not a lifetime achievement of all it's called MVP. He's not leading the league in any category and he's about to take the lead in the most turnovers yet he's supposed to be the MVP.

    Its always Lebron’s teammates that gets the blame lol i though bron makes his teammates better? Ya’ll contradicting that right now? You crucify westbrook and label him a stat padder and saying he’s the reason why they are losing even though he put up big numbers lol Now if its Lebron its always his teammates fault cause bron has good numbers. Lol nba fans are smarter than that lol Bron scored 19 pts last night in 1-8 shooting 3pt and 5 turnovers why didnt he took any blame? I thought leaders should be held accountable lol

      If they watched these recent games, LeBron has done some really bad decisions in the clutch. How often is he hogging the ball and then passing to someone in the last second? Or the ball circles back to him with a few seconds left, so he can chuck up a bad 3? Game is so much easier when you have a top 5 player as your teammate, who does it on both ends.

      @Tony Got Bars they also had rondo the Celtics had an all star team dafuck are you talking about Ray Allen Paul pierce kg rondo big baby not only did they have a big 3 they also had good role players and a decent bench Howard was considered the best center in the game at one time going to the finals so wtf are you talking about that same team the Celtics beat the Lakers

      You gonna bring up him not having a top 5 player in the finals. But not mention Dwight Howard or Paul Pierce didn’t have top 5 player either. An don’t say Ray Allen or KG was a top 5 player because you know damn well they both were out of there primes

      So who was a top 5 player or even an all star next to Dwight Howard? An in that Game 7 against the Celtics kobe had 23, Gasol had 19, & Metta World peace had 20. An let me school you real quick you said he wasn’t good on other teams right. You just made my point. He averaged 18 & 10 in 2010 & 18&11 in 2009 in regular season. In the 2009 finals he averaged 18&9. In the 2010 finals he averaged 18&11 in the finals.

    Unprecedented for Lebron to win MVP at 36? Jordan did it at 35 in 98' (Karl Malone and Kareem also won it at 35). It would be unprecedented if he wins it while players with better records and numbers don't win it, I'll give you that.

      @Siboniso Duma Peopke keep going back and forth on that topic. Kd was “the best” during 2019 until he got hurt. Then it was between Kawhi and Lebron until Lebron took it back last year. At this point I think Kd is best in the league, but Lebron is the most valuable.

    Ric Bucher is confused. Bucher says Lebron's not very good because Lebron's Win Shares are at the lowest in his career. But win shares are cumulative. Lebron has "just" 4.3 Win Shares this year, compared to 9.8 last season, but that's 4.3 in 31 games. In fact, he's 9th in the league this season in Win Shares -- and, amazingly, at 36 years old -- 2nd in Defensive Win Shares at 2.0, just 0.1 behind the league leader Rudy Gobert. LBJ's also tied for 2nd in Value Over Replacement Player and is also 6th in Boxscore Plus Minus. And all this after the Lakers and, to some degree, LBJ himself, have been in a bit of a slump with AD and Dennis Schroder out. It's seems reasonable to expect the Lakers to make some adjustments and play a bit better even while shorthanded, and then play much better when AD and Schroder come back. That should nudge Lebron's advanced metrics to even higher levels.
