LeBron James set a record but experienced the worst defeat of his career, sending a wake-up call to the Lakers

In 21 years of playing, LeBron James has never suffered a 44-point loss like what he and the Los Angeles Lakers just experienced on the morning of November 28.

On November 28, LeBron James reached two new career milestones in the Los Angeles Lakers match against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The first milestone came quite early when James surpassed the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, officially becoming the player with the highest number of minutes played in NBA history (including Regular Season and Playoffs).

Contrast this with the second milestone after the match ends. The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers with a huge score of 138-94, giving LeBron James the biggest loss of his 21-year NBA career.

LeBron James set a happy record but also a sad record on the day the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Philadelphia 76ers by 44 points

The Los Angeles Lakers soon fell behind by a 20-2 run by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first half, bringing the gap between the two teams to 25 points before halftime.

LeBron James and his teammates tried to come back in the third quarter, shortening the gap to 12 points. However, the Philly team maintained focus and regained the game before “blow-out” Los Angeles in the fourth quarter (final score was 40-13).

Receiving the worst defeat of his playing career, James appeared dissatisfied with himself and his teammates. When asked what the team needs to do to prevent such a heavy defeat from happening again, he answered very simply: “A lot of things have to be done.”

This is the 5th biggest loss in the history of the Los Angeles Lakers Club, also the team’s biggest loss in the past 6-7 years.
Reporters wanted more specific answers from LeBron, but the Los Angeles Lakers superstar refused to answer further. However, it is not necessary to share from the “king” himself to realize a series of weaknesses that the Lakers have.

Besides the fact that many supporting players are injured, below are statistics about the yellow and purple team that do not lie:

– The Lakers are currently the team with the lowest average number of successful 3-pointers in the entire tournament with 9.8 3PTM per game. The Lakers’ 3PT% is also not good, ranking 24th out of 30 teams in the NBA

– On average per match, the Lakers have the lowest number of passes (ranked 28th out of 30 teams) and have the 7th highest number of lost balls in the tournament.

The Lakers are lacking many options in attack and defense has not been stable through matches
Currently, the Lakers’ long-range success rate is too low and the team has not yet found a powerful assistant for LeBron James, a name that brings stability to the attack in both scoring and assists.

Welcoming the return of Rui Hachimura, Gabe Vincent and the important defensive piece Jared Vanderbilt will more or less help the Los Angeles Lakers improve their stats.

But at the present time, having a full squad will not necessarily make the Lakers play better and reach the level of championship competition as fans expect.

At this time last year, the Los Angeles Lakers were playing better with 10 wins in 18 games (last season the Lakers lost 11 games in the first 18 games).

However, experiencing such a heavy defeat despite having both LeBron James and Anthony Davis playing with 100% physical condition like this will make many people, including insiders, skeptical about the Lakers’ ability to go far in the future. hybrid.
