At least James has one thing to be happy about.
Last night the Los Angles Lakers and their playoff hopes were dimmed a little bit as they lost to the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 110-105. Memphis is a team that they should be able to beat but because of the loss, the team now has a record of 29-31 and are struggling to advance in the Western Conference standings where they currently sit in 11th place. LeBron James is at risk of missing his first playoffs since 2005 and has been critical of his teammates in the process. Despite all this, one thing did go well for LeBron last night as he surpassed Andre Miller for the 10th spot on the NBA all-time assists leaders list. This makes him the only player in NBA history to be top 10 all-time in points and assists.
After the game, LeBron criticized his teammates for the loss and questioned their ability to play when there are distractions around.
"At this point, if you are still allowing distractions to affect how the way you play, then this is the wrong franchise to be a part of and you should just come and be like, 'Listen, I don't [think this is for me]. I cannot do this,'" James said according to ESPN.
The Lakers will try to get back on track when they take on the New Orleans Pelicans at home on Wednesday.
