LeBron James Questions Lakers' Experience, 'Sense of Urgency' After Loss vs. Pelicans

Anthony Davis to remain in Pelicans lineup for now

The Los Angeles Lakers tried to get Anthony Davis in a Lakers uniform by reportedly offering trade packages to the New Orleans Pelicans before the February 7 deadline.

Then, the team went out and faced a New Orleans Pelicans team without Anthony Davis and got blown out.

And James suggested some the Lakers players who haven't reached the playoffs before are "afraid to get uncomfortable". "You've got to be comfortable with being uncomfortable".

"I'm not saying that's what we are as a whole, kind of looks like that at times that sometimes we're afraid to being uncomfortable". "If we were playing the Baltimore Claws, we would sit him out that game too, OK?"

That set the tone for the night, as the Lakers played from behind for the majority of the game despite humming along offensively.

The Lakers have not made the playoffs since after the 2012-13 season. "And we were doing that and obviously it sucks that my injury happened and [Lonzo Ball's] injury happened and so many of our injuries happened".

NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said, "The aircraft was in what I would characterize as a normal descent and around 6300 feet". Three people were aboard the twin-engine Boeing 767 operated by Atlas Air Inc. when it went down before 12:45 p.m.

In addition to the Lakers' struggles on defense, they also turned the ball over a ton against the Pelicans.

All ABA references aside, Gentry - who first started coaching in the National Basketball Association as an assistant 30 years ago - rejected the premise that Saturday's matchup with the Lakers, whose failed pursuit of Davis played out in the headlines for weeks leading up to the trade deadline, was anything special.

There were other words aimed at preparation and mental fortitude that, like a lot of what LeBron says, could be aimed in a lot of different directions.

LeBron James paced the Lakers with 27 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds and four steals, while Brandon Ingram overcame early foul trouble to lead all scorers with 29.

With Hayward and Irving back, the Celtics have a glut of talent and would apparently like to flip multiple players in exchange for a superstar like Davis. We got whatever we wanted offensively.

L.A. will finish its two-game road trip in Memphis on Monday before returning home to host the Pelicans on Wednesday. "We actually started to shoot free throws a little better, but our turnovers have gone up".
