Here are five things that you may have missed this week in the NBA.
While other sports have a “silly season”, so does the NBA. However, “silly season” is the entire year. There’s not one-point in the year where everything becomes fun, there’s never a dull moment around the association. The NBA is entertainment at its finest and down the long road that is the regular season, there are a lot of twists and turns.
If you’ve missed the NBA this week, you’ve missed a lot. Whether you were stuck living under a rock or were swamped with work, we’re here to keep you up to speed on everything happening around the league.

After drilling a clutch three-pointer against the Knicks to cap off an incredible comeback, James dubbed himself “King of New York” after a chippy affair at the Garden.
In addition to the antics between the Cavaliers and Knicks, a love affair has now begun between the 76ers and Lonzo Ball. While a much anticipated Sixers-Lakers matchup didn’t fail to deliver its fair share of fun, the relationship between Ball and Joel Embiid stole the headlines. Embiid, who got testy with LaVar Ball — Lonzo’s father — in the offseason, claimed that he likes Lonzo’s game. Therefore declaring that his problem is with daddy Ball, not little Ball.
