LeBron James got on his knees in hysterics. What happened to the NBA legend?



The judge turned a blind eye to the compelling evidence from the Lakers players. And made the star furious.

The Los Angeles Lakers are close to missing the playoffs for the second year in a row. Therefore, the Californians were not to be motivated for the match with Boston. LeBron James and company gave the leaders of the season a real fight and could well have won in regulation time, but the controversial decision of the referees contributed to the match going into overtime.

LeBron lost his temper and threw a tantrum. The best basketball player on the planet was seriously pissed off.

unexpected chance

Things have not been going well for the Los Angeles Lakers this season in the NBA. Darwin Ham’s team is close to flying past the playoffs again. Now the California club is 13th in the Western Conference. The Lakers have a negative balance of wins and losses.

Before the match with principal rivals from Boston, the Lakers could not be considered favorites, but from the very first minute they showed a focus on sensation. At times, the team even led by a comfortable margin. In many ways, the success of Los Angeles was facilitated by the inspired play of the leader LeBron James, who was just a little bit left to become the most productive player in the history of the NBA.

In the game with Boston, the legendary basketball player added another 41 points to the sniper score. This allowed him to close the gap on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to 117 points. Also on account of LeBron 9 rebounds and 8 assists.

“I don’t see this happening to anyone else”

But James’ excellent performance was not enough. Victory at the last moment eluded the Californian club. LeBron just missed a great chance to bring a win to Los Angeles. The team brought him to the throw three seconds before the end of the fourth quarter with a tie. Forward had only to complete the attack from under the ring.

The basketball player failed to do this. At the last moment, James was stopped by Boston’s light forward Jason Tatum. He hit the opponent hard from behind on the hands without touching the ball, but the judges left the episode without attention.

This did not please LeBron, who threw a real tantrum right on the floor. James’ indignation knew no bounds. He jumped, waved his arms, shouted at the judges and demanded punishment for the opponent. The striker even knelt down and hit his palm on the platform, after which he sank down on all fours, frustrated.

I watch these games every single day and I don’t see this happening to anyone else. It’s just weird,” LeBron said after the match.

The referee’s decision shocked the entire Lakers bench. The original attempt to prove the case to the referees was made by James’ teammate Patrick Beverly. He took the camera from the photographer and went to the judge to show the controversial moment in the picture. But this did not affect the final verdict. He received only a technical foul.

In overtime, Boston looked more confident and took the final victory from the team from California – 125:121. As a result, the Lakers suffered their 27th loss of the season, further complicating their fight for a top 10 finish.

The Mavericks are one step away from fiasco, their schedule and ties not in their favor




Losing to the Heat put the Mavericks in even more trouble chasing a Western playground as they stayed in 11th place. But things are looking…even worse as their schedule looks dangerous until the end of the season and the ties aren’t on their side.

Luka Doncic’s partnership with Kyrie Irving hasn’t yielded the results the Mavericks expected. Dallas was 4th in the West when they took over Irving from the Nets on February 6th. Almost two months later, after losing to the – without Bam Adebayo – Heat, Dallas are 11th(!) in the West and are struggling to get into the play-in, with the odds not being on their side.

The Mavericks have basically put their hands up and gouged out their eyes for the past few days. The back-to-back losses to the indifferent Hornets have practically turned things on their head for Doncic’s company Irving, who instead sits 10th in the West with a 39-39 record (level with Wolves, who are 9th in the West). are out of play-in and things are looking extremely bad.

To be precise, here are the rankings in the West at places 7-12:
7. New Orleans Pelicans 40-38
8. LA Lakers 39-38
9.Minnesota Timberwolves 39-39
10. Oklahoma City Thunder 38-40
11 Dallas Mavericks 37-41
12. Utah Jazz 36-41

The Mavericks are 1 game behind the Thunder, 2 behind the Wolves, 2.5 behind the Lakers and 3 behind the Pelicans, while the Jazz are a half game behind them in 12th place. With the exception of the Lakers and Jazz – who have 5 games left – the other teams battling for a play-in spot (Pelicans have realistic hopes for even 5th place) have 4 games each.

It looks difficult for Dallas. But in reality, it’s…worse, as the Mavs lag behind the teams above them in almost every tiebreak. Specifically, Dallas has:
2-2 wins over Pelicans (falling behind because New Orleans has better offense)
3-1 win over the Lakers
1-2 wins against Wolves
1-2 wins against the Thunder
3:1 wins against the Jazz

In a few words: With the exception of the Lakers, the Mavericks don’t want to be tied with any team other than the current ranks 7-10. Special:

  • In order for the Mavericks to overtake the Thunder – who are their direct competitor – they need to win two more in the four remaining games until the end of the regular season. For example, that’s 3 wins and Oklahoma City one win, or 4/4 and The Thunder up to two wins.
  • To get past the Wolves, they need to win three times more than Minnesota (3 wins against none of the Wolves or 4 wins for a Wolves win).
  • To get past the pelicans they have to go 4/4 and the pelicans 0/4
  • To get past the Lakers, all they have to do is tie.

The schedule is dangerous, but the Thunder are in…worse

With the Mavericks losing 5 of their last 6 games, including two straight losses to the Hornets, it’s clear Dallas can… lose to anyone. But even leaving their image out of the equation, a look at their schedule shows that things aren’t easy as 3 of their 4 remaining games are high stakes.

Specifically, the Mavericks will face off in their last 4 games in order:

  • Away from the Atlanta Hawks (38-39) by Trae Young and Dejude Marie who are fighting for a good position in the eastern play-in.
  • Home of the Sacramento Kings (47-30) who secured 3rd place in the west but are still chasing 2nd place from the Grizzlies.
  • Home of the Chicago Bulls (37-40) fighting for No. 10 in the West.
  • At home with the Spurs (19-58) going through the “YOLO” stage in pursuit of Victor Webanyama and maybe even giving Gregg Popovich or the guy who works the floor in the team canteen some playing time to make sure that they do get beaten.

As becomes clear, the Mavs, despite 3/4 home games – with the exception of the Spurs – meet teams hungry for victory. You can hope that Sacramento might show up without their appetizers, but as it turns out, even that might not be enough.

On a positive note for the Mavericks, their direct rival (The Thunder) has an even tougher schedule as they face the Suns (home), Warriors (away), Jazz (away), and Grizzlies (home) in HQ order. In general, making it to a win is indeed an open-ended scenario for Oklahoma City, giving the Mavericks a breather. But Dallas can’t count on the Thunder’s results, they need to win first.

Either way, it’s clear the Mavericks are in a tough spot. Right now, they certainly don’t look like the title contenders they expected when they took over Irving. Instead they look like – and are – a mediocre team with no chemistry and a Swiss cheese defense.

Will the Texans flip the switch in the last 4 games? If they don’t, the year will prove to be a fiasco, especially considering they made it to the West Finals last year. However, the worst thing is that even if they get enough wins, it may not be enough. And there’s nothing worse than not defining your NBA destiny.
