What is up with LeBron’s tweet about ‘something going on’?

Many believe it is a vague anti vaccine tweet cause he reluctantly got the vaccines (basically his words at training camp) and now is positive for covid. Could be about anythjng. That is just a lot of people’s theories.

Thanks TP for the response.

Jokic is shooting 58% from the field and 38% from three. That is 64.4% on two point shots. A TS% of 65.5% at 26ppg in addition to his crazy passing skills. My god that is impressive.

And 13.8 boards a night too.

He’s an amazing player. He might go down as the most skilled big man of all time. He’s got it all. Low post game. 3 pt ball. Passing. Rebounding. The skill to make the most awkward unathletic shots ever.

I really struggle to think of a big man with such an all-round offensive skill-set. He can literally do everything on the offensive end besides dunks. The jump his rebounding has taken this season (15.1 per 36 compared to 11.8 per 36 for his career prior to) has been gaudy.

Denver are obviously struggling with all their major injuries, but it has been no fault of Jokic's. He should be right up in MVP considerations with Curry, Durant and Giannis.

only bigs I can compare to him in terms of offensive force in the game with the ability to pass like him are Walton and Kareem.  needless to say they played in an era where bigs didn't shoot from outside the lane but I suspect Walton could have had a respectable shot out to 20 feet without much effort.  from there to the 3 line is just some effort.  didn't see Wilt play so cannot speak to his passing abilities in comparison but his passing skills were well known.

Towns is 51% FG, 44% 3p%, 62.6 TS%.  Jokic is a better passer, does more overall, but Towns is not all that far behind.

KAT is the best shooting centre thus far in the NBA in my opinion. Elite percentage on high volume. Towns is a good passer, but Jokic is perhaps the best passing big man of all time, while being a better scorer inside the arc, and not that far behind in terms of shooting.

Pretty sure the lines have been open since last season when Kyrie decided that he didn’t want to play because there were more important things going on in the world than basketball.

This is pretty dumb.

1) not a moving screen
2) he was right to argue
3) how the heck is that 2 techs in the space of 3 seconds
