The last NBA season was interrupted and turned out to be crumpled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The regular season was shortened and played out in a so-called “bubble” in Orlando without an audience. All these events have seriously affected the financial well-being of the teams.
So, the total losses of NBA clubs due to the crisis associated with the pandemic became known. In total, all 30 League clubs lost $ 694 million.
The Los Angeles Lakers suffered the biggest losses, losing $ 52.7 million in home games. The new York Knicks are second in losses at $ 45 million, and the Golden state Warriors are third ($ 42.5 million).
The Memphis Grizzlies suffered the least losses. The club’s losses totaled $ 10.4 million, according to NBAHolics.
Expert: LeBron is once and for all excluded from the debate about the greatest. He has no conscience at all
NBA analyst Skip Bayless believes that the attempt to lure Oklahoma city thunder point guard Chris Paul and other superstars to the Lakers excludes LeBron James from the dispute over the greatest player of all time with Michael Jordan.
“LeBron James has no conscience at all when it comes to poaching other clubs’ superstars and winning titles. He shamelessly lures other superstars to join his team and help them win the title. Because he needs help, help, and more help. I could understand when he moved to the Miami Heat in 2010 and teamed up with Dwyane Wade and Chris BOSH. For so many years, LeBron has achieved nothing at the Cleveland Cavaliers. But then he wanted to go back to Cleveland because it had the League’s best catcher, Kyrie Irving, and the best rebounder, Kevin Love. Then LeBron arranged for Anthony Davis to be traded from the new Orleans Pelicans to the Lakers. It worked. LeBron had the easiest path to the title. In the final, he beat Miami, which lost Goran Dragic and BAM Adebayo in the first match.
Kawai Leonard was supposed to be on LeBron’s team, but at the last moment, he decided to move to the clippers. The Lakers could have had three players from the NBA’s top 5. When I saw the news that LeBron wanted to trade Chris Paul to the Lakers, I just sat back and shook my head. I said that LeBron is once and for all excluded from the debate about the greatest player of all time. Because the greatest ones don’t try to attract superstars to their team. Michael Jordan won titles all these years with the Chicago bulls with a simple approach — I play with those who I have, “Bayless is quoted as saying by Undisputed.
