Joel Embiid Says Conditioning at '69 Percent'

Okay, I'll trust the process.

Despite a bar-measuring loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma didn't celebrate a career-high 24-point performance, but rather reminisced about the opportunities missed throughout the game. The last National Basketball Association player to put up at least 40 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 7 blocks: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and it took him four overtimes to do it in 1980. He seemed able to, at will, get to wherever he wanted on the floor, via a litany of post moves with his back to the basket and facing up. "I got going and I just wanted to stay aggressive".

"He's a problem", Lakers Coach Luke Walton told ESPN afterward.

There are a lot of rumours, but I think for the federation it's right to take time to find the best solution. Four-time champion Italy lost a playoff to Sweden , 1-0 on aggregate, on Monday.

Ball isn't as happy as he used to be.

Aware of what he just avoided, Joel Embiid could be seen smiling, almost avoiding being buried under the basket by the lanky Lakers rookie, who has grown impatient waiting for his first SLAM-worthy poster. Meanwhile, he would add 18 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists. Afterward, Embiid took a subtle Instagram dig at Lonzo's loudmouthed father, LaVar, who was not in attendance. I love what he's doing, especially with his own shoe. "Too bad there wasn't any trash-talker out there".

"The whole situation with them, I think it's just fun". That's my new mentality.
