Hats off to two basketball legeпds carryiпg the NBA forward” – Nick Wright criticizes NBA sυperstars as “completely υпreliable

The NBA’s Rivals Week was supposed to be capped by a double-header of Joel Embiid vs. Nikola Jokic and LeBron James vs. Stephen Curry.

While the aging Californian superstars put on a show, the Philadelphia 76ers’ MVP was a late scratch for his showdown against his fellow big man.

Nick Wright shared an insight that many fans agree with, calling out some of the league’s top players for intentionally sitting out games and praising James and Curry for their strong performances in the double-overtime thriller between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.

James and Curry turn back the time

For all we know, the sports personality could be referring to other superstars.

But Anthony Davis surely isn’t one of them anymore, especially after fighting through an injury in the Lakers-Warriors tiff.

The Lakers needed every second of Davis on Saturday to escape with a 145-144 road win over the Warriors.

The eight-time All-Star provided James with enough support in the four-time MVP’s instant classic versus Curry.

Despite both of them being at least 35 years old, LeBron and Steph proved that the time to write them off won’t be anytime soon, combining for 74 points.

James also hauled in a career-high in rebounds and became the oldest player to record a stat line of 30-20-10.

On the other hand, Curry scored 15 of his 46 in overtime to extend his first-place lead in total clutch points this season.
