Cleveland, OH--LeBron James and Lonzo Ball, two men who brands took off before they stepped on the floor for their first NBA games.
But is James the one person in the league who understands uncontrollable pressure heading into every big game with unrealistic high expectations set forth by everyone but themselves publicly? Maybe those were the quick words James had for Ball after the game (this was not shared publicity during TNT's broadcast).
Ball had 13 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists nearing a triple-double. However, it was James with his 59th triple double (25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists) who tied Larry Bird at 6th all-time in career NBA triple doubles.
