After five months of being locked down since the COVID-19 pandemic hit our nation, the National Basketball League is finally back. Tonight, LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers will have a tough time taking on Kawaii Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers. In his 17th season in the NBA, James is on a mission to solidify his position as one of, if not, the greatest basketball players ever to live. The Lakers have been joined by Lebron’s former teammate, J.R Smith, to help guide them to what could be the franchise’s 17th championship trophy. With the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant earlier this year, the Lakers will have a chip on their shoulder to honor the great basketball legend. All 22 teams in the Orland “Bubble” will play eight games to finish off the regular season. Former first overall pick in the 2019 draft, Zion Williamson, and the New Orleans Pelicans will tip off versus the Utah Jazz tonight at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. The Lakers-Clippers game will follow at 9:00 PM Eastern Time on TNT.
