Warning! On the court, Bronny James, who looks strikingly similar to his father, is known as “the golden boy.”
Lakers coach Darvin Ham denies LeBron James the game ball despite 39,000-point feat for hilarious reason
When LeBron James scored 39,000 points on Tuesday night while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, he became the first player in the history of the National Basketball Association to accomplish this feat.That, in addition to the fact that the Lakers performed like the ‘Showtime’ group in the blowout victory, ought to make James happy.James, on the other hand, does not intend to place the game ball on display as a souvenir of the accomplishment. It was reported by Lakers Nation that Darvin Ham, the coach of the team, refuted the claim that he had given James the game ball on multiple occasions:
Our appreciation is warranted by what we are witnessing. Due to the fact that the score for tonight’s match is 39,000 rather than 40, he was not designated to receive the game ball.
In the event that there are no unanticipated situations, James is still on track to earn 40,000 points by the end of the season. This is a fortunate situation for him.
On Tuesday, a number of players who will one day be inducted into the Hall of Fame scored more than one thousand points, and the Lakers great was not the only one to do so. Suns player Kevin Durant moved up to eleventh all-time in NBA scoring after scoring in the first quarter of the game against the Blazers. He did it by passing Elvin Hayes, who was previously in eleventh place. The individual whose career scoring total is higher than Durant’s is Moses Malone, who passed away at the end of his career with 27,409 points. Durant’s total includes both points and assists. There is no doubt that Durant will surpass Malone in the season standings within the next month or two by a significant margin.James ended with 17 points, seven boards, and nine assists in just 24 minutes of play during the Lakers’ 131-99 thumping of the Jazz. James completed the game with a total of nine assists.
Aside from the fact that it was not LeBron James, it is obvious that we still do not know who Darvin Ham gave the ball to.
The Los Angeles Lakers will be traveling to Dallas to play the Dallas Mavericks tomorrow evening.
