LeBron James NBA news


LeBron breaks more NBA records

In the latest season, LeBron James reached a career-high in assists with an average of 10.2 and 25.3 points per game. His rebound average is 7.8. James and Anthony Davis had a helping hand sending the Lakers to the Western Conference Finals where they’ll face the Denver Nuggets.

His performance leads to his selection in the All-NBA First Team. This is the sixteenth time in his 17 year career, making him the most selected ALL-NBA player. 

He’s surpassed Hall of Famers such as Bryant, Duncan, and Abdul-Jabbar in his accomplishment.


Tottenham close to completing two deals

Jose Mourinho is striving to transform Spurs after a sloppy start to the season.. After signing Matt Doherty and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, he still wants two players, both currently at Real Madrid. According to reports, he’s close to closing the two deals for Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale.

Reguilon is set for a medical exam today, but Bale is still negotiating his exit from Madrid. If the signing goes through, he’ll play for Tottenham on loan for the season. He’s eager for the move as he’s been clashing with Real boss Zinedine Zidane. 

The two teammates could be what Spurs need to redeem themselves after the 1-0 loss to Everton on the Premier League opening weekend.


Aubameyang adds three years to Arsenal contract

Since the end of the last season, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Many believed the Gabon international had set his sights on joining a Champions League team.

Despite Barca and Inter Milan offering him a deal, the Arsenal captain decided to stay where he is and follow in the footsteps of legends such as Henry, Thierry, Bergkamp, and Patrick Viera. The club is special to him, and the fans love his style and finishing capability.

Aubameyang has been an excellent leader in his captaincy, and he’s a crucial part of the squad on the field. During the FA Cup final, the Gabon international netted Arsenal to victory. He also bagged one for the Gunners during the opening EPL game.  


Djokovic makes comeback in Rome

Last week, Novak Djokovic broke the news after his disqualification from the US Open when he hit a ball that injured a lineswoman. In his opening game at the Italian Open, he redeemed himself with a straight-sets defeat against Salvatore Caruso.

The world no.1 says that he wanted to get on the court as soon as possible after the incident in New York and didn’t think he’d have any mental blocks. It proved accurate, as he enjoyed the match against Caruso, who he said was a good test.
