LOS ANGELES, LA –
Last night (Feb. 25), LeBron James and the “Lakeshow” hosted Zion WIlliamson and the Pelicans. L.A won 118-109 as the stars battled it out.
I watched my first real bit of NBA action this season, last night. Like most of the world, I’ve been drooling at the idea of LeBron battling Zion. With Zion’s early-season injury, we had no clue what to expect. However, his performance so far has been nothing short of expectations.
Equally as poetic is LeBron’s high performance at the later years of his career. It’s clear that these two men are freakish talented athletes who are just on opposite sides of age. Their battle last night was the brightest star in Los Angeles.
Let’s tap in.
King recognize King.
Last night, a King of New Orleans visited LeBron’s kingdom of L.A. LeBron was impressed with his house guest.
After the game, LeBron spoke about how impressed he was with Zion. “He’s playing exceptional basketball,” James said to ESPN. “I think every game he’s going to get better and better, just having that experience. I think today’s game is a perfect fit for his game. The high pace, the way they play, it fits his game. The speed, running up and down and playing at that speed, they move the ball.”
I think we saw something special last night.
