Is this LeBron James, or an imposter? James' Lakers are in a miserable rut, and it couldn't come at a worse time. LA needs to begin their playoff push before it's too late, and losing games to the likes of the Phoenix Suns isn't acceptable. Unfortunately, it's not just James' young teammates at fault. The King himself looks defeated, as this next turnover will suggest.
James not only got beat on the play, but threw the ball off the back of the backboard, either in frustration or a lackluster attempt to make an inbounds pass. Either way, we've come to expect better from the pound-for-pound best player in the world.
