You buried the lead:

lede

I was 40 before I figured this out. ;)
I just learned it right now! Never knew that before. Wow.
lede (/lēd/)
noun
the opening sentence or paragraph of a news article, summarizing the most important aspects of the story.
"the lede has been rewritten and the headline changed"
As far as Tatum is concerned. Hard to believe that we were one pick away from having the opportunity to take him and yet there's a chance McD wouldn't have.
If McD hadn’t gotten Jackson to cancel his workout with Boston, we might have ended up with Tatum.

Maybe. I’m guessing though still not likely. And ouch, that Sacramento burn at the end!
And Kevin Johnson had just left office as Mayor, haha. He played for Sacramento, though, so I guess he's allowed to say it. :lol:

That title is ridiculous! “Broke his legs” “in tears” I didn’t see any evidence of either of those things happening.

Lakers look to be on the losing end in LeBron's 2nd game back. Down 9 with 1:12 to go against the Raptors.

Just closed the gap to 119-113 with 58 seconds to play.

Lakers might be in trouble. I heard 8 of their last 9 games are b2b’s.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

The play-in games are the best thing to happen to the NBA since changing the illegal defense rules.

Typical LeBron imo
Lol @ the comments from last year

Apparently the post game interviews was a whole venting session from him and AD. I guess bringing up stuff like season starting sooner than they thought it should and whatever else

I don't really care to listen tbh
His ankle sprain was a random freak injury, AD always misses time anyways and lots of smart ppl said Lakers will miss Howard/McGee & Rondo more than most ppl think.

Either way he knows what he is doing because that's all persons gonna talk about now. "Play-In games are stupid, even The King has said so" and all those other factors about why Lakers were disadvantaged to somehow throw a lil cold water on the teams who are doing well

Everyone is mad about the West play-in now. That's how you know it's working:

LeBron should be glad there's a Play-In Tournament, because at this point the Lakers are in danger of falling below 8th lol. If they fall to 9th will he say that whoever came up with it is a genius? :lol:

And it is still statistically possible for the Lakers to fall to 11th. Just saying.

Wouldn't it be something to see him and the Lakers LOSE a play-in tournament? A man can dream.

Totally possible, but I think the Refs would put the team on their back for the play-in games.
