Now the people who work for ESPN work in sports for a living so on their part I’m going to assume that there is a little bit of shock journalism going on here. However, I have also seen this opinion expressed across social media even by people who I respect! I can’t believe after the season LeBron James has had and the potential that the Lakers showed last season that people really think they WON’T EVEN MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!? Hit the vid to hear my thoughts.
