Lavar Ball believes the size and strength of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is the reason for his low injury risk, unlike Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant and Golden State Warriors attacking guard Clay Thompson.
“This boy came into the game strongly and heavy. He is strong. LeBron is not a small lightweight, no. But she can run and make contact. He is old and young at the same time … LeBron is not so skinny that you push him and he gets hurt. Durant and Clay, they are not so built, so everyone is shocked, ”Lavard quotes Essentially Sports.
Recall that Thompson was going to return to duty in the 2020/2021 season after a missed year due to ruptured cruciate ligaments, but last week during training in Southern California torn Achilles. The Warriors then acquired Kelly Oubre and Kent Bazemore to reinforce the baseline.
