📅 On this day in 2010, the @Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant scored 31 points in a loss to the Cavaliers, reaching 25,000 career points in the process.
At the time, Bryant was the youngest player in NBA history to reach that mark (31 years, 151 days), a distinction now held by LeBron James. pic.twitter.com/IUH1EuUX9412:01 PM

Pacers beat LeBron’s Lakers and Steph’s Warriors on back-to-back nights minus Myles Turner in both games and all key cogs except rookie Chris Duarte missing at Golden State. By mandate, Rick Carlisle is now the greatest coach ever. Duarte is back in ROY race. These are the rules. – 1:01 AM

The latest All-Star returns have LeBron James, not Steph Curry, in line to be the Western Conference captain: sfchronicle.com//sports/warrio…5:40 PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Last month, the Lakers made a philosophical change to embrace small ball. But it was designed to unlock the best version of LeBron James; Russell Westbrook was left to figure out his own role.
That laid the foundation for where the Lakers are now: ocregister.com/2022/01/20/how…5:01 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
If LeBron James finishes at the top All-Star vote-getter, it will be his 9th time doing so which would tie Michael Jordan for the most in NBA history.
LeBron’s All-Star voting leads:
2007, 2010, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 – 2:33 PM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Just had an interesting conversation: how many 2021-22 Lakers would you definitely want back on next year’s roster?
I have five definites: Bron, AD, Reaves, Monk and Stan.
Three maybes: Melo (age), Nunn (health), THT (would rather trade). – 2:31 PM

On a night when LeBron James became the first player in #NBA history to eclipse 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 9,000 assists, it was Caris LeVert who stole the show down the stretch.
