The Marvel Universe has been on quite a heater lately, culminating in the recently released Black Panther movie. With that said, an underappreciated and rarely talked about character is The Juggernaut. Possesses superhuman strength and durability, is virtually unstoppable once in motion, and immune to mental attacks when donning a helmet. He’s fought and taken on all comers. Sounds alot like LeBron James aka LeJuggernaut. Possesses superhuman strength? Check. Is durable? Has played 1130 career games and missed 111, with many of those due to “rest.” As this fivethirtyeight.com article stated, LeBron has “never missed a playoff game” even though he has the “sixth-most regular season minutes of all time.” He’s in the top 3 all time of games played per season as a percentage of the player’s teams’ total regular-season and playoff games. Among active players, “no one has gone to the free-throw line more than James.” I think that’s a resounding Check. Is unstoppable once in motion? Check. Immune to mental attacks? He had his moments early in his career when it seemed like LeBron was mentally fragile, but as time has gone on, he’s shown to be impervious to distractions both on and off the court. Check. Last night, LeJuggernaut messed around by rampaging through the Milwaukee Bucks.
There are 12 games left in the regular season and the Cavs are currently the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference. IND, WAS, and PHI are only one game back in the loss column. It’s winning time and LeJuggernaut has been unleashed for the stretch run. If you don’t believe me, take a look below:
Here’s what else I saw last night:

Rudy has been hard at work in the lab. His latest creation? DAILY LINEUPS PAGE. So good. So smooth. So helpful. He decided to go with the Sonny Bono red tint, while I prefer the blue tint. What say you?
Played 25 minutes in his first game back from injury. Love is in the air, as it’s winning time.
Played 41 minutes and continues to start, last night at power forward. Green should continue being in the starting lineup and getting 35+ minutes a game. With that said, he doesn’t do much outside of scoring, so his ceiling is limited, but minutes are minutes. He’s bound to fall into some stats.
Still harnessing his super powers. Can’t wait for the unveiling next season.
For the month of March, 20.4 points, 5.4 boards, 3.4 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.9 downtowners, 14.4 shot attempts, and 36 minutes a game. Damn….
Played 23 minutes, while John Henson played 20 minutes. Is it happening? Not sure, but this is what I was expecting more of before the season began. Thon can contribute the D stats and shoots well from the perimeter. Maybe it was a matchup thing, but I’d keep an eye on him going forward.
Played 25 minutes. I don’t think he’s going to get much more per game. With that said, he has the potential and ability to go nuts any game. Just be aware that both the minutes and production will be inconsistent.
Played 34 minutes. Has arguably been the Lakers’ best player over the past couple of months. The only thing missing from his game is the ability to connect from downtown.
Played 37 minutes. Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuz has range from downtown, can spot up or shoot off the bounce, finishes well at the rim, rebounds, and can do this…..
He’s 6′ 9″ and only 22 years old. Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Played 37 minutes. I’m still baffled as to why both Lopez and Randle were not getting significant run early in the season. Anyways, they are now and that’s all that matters. For the month of March, 19 points, 4.2 boards, 2.1 dimes, 1.7 blocks, 2.2 downtowners, 13.4 shot attempts, and 29.8 minutes per game. Damn…..
Played 36 minutes. Thad is such a frustrating player to own. Has the ability to contribute across the board every night. Just doesn’t do it every night.
The Odometer was working after a brief hiatus. Health permitting, it wouldn’t surprise me if he balls the F out for the final couple of weeks so that I get excited about him in the offseason and rank him higher than I probably should.
Returned to the starting lineup and played 33 minutes. Hasta la vista, whoever was starting in his place. <I know it was Cory Joseph, but it might as well have been a ghost>
Played 30 minutes. Since Domantas Sabonis went down, the Pacers have gone small more often, which has benefitted Lance the most. He’s played 30 and 29 minutes the past two games, hoisted up 13 and 15 shots, and grabbed five boards in each game.
Got the start with Nicolas Batum down and played 30 minutes. With Batum sporting an Achilles injury, Lamb is probably in line for a ton of playing time. That’s baaaaaaaad for Batum, but baaaaaaad ass for Lamb owners.
Holy F’ing shit balls!!! Willy played 20 minutes. All it took was a trade to another team and injury to Cody Zeller. He could be poised for around 20 minutes a game. Keep an eye on his minutes allocation.
Only played 16 minutes but wasn’t shy about hoisting up shots. I loved Monk in college and during the draft process, so I’m biased when it comes to him. With the Hornets unlikely to make the playoffs, Monk could get more run down the stretch.
Looks Dwight in the face. You were called Superman at one point? Mwaha haha ha!!! Who gonna sex Embiid??!!
Ben Simmons messed around.
When Ben was configuring his attributes from high above Earth in his alien vehicle, he did what any young kid would do. Make everything 99. Unfortunately, his parents did not wish to make his experience so easy, so they put the shooting down to 30 and 3-point shot to 0. When he figures that shit out, G and BS go 1 and 2 in fantasy drafts?
Played 24 minutes. Has averaged over 25 minutes a game for the month of March and attempted 8.2 shots a game, with 4 of those being from downtown.
Played 29 minutes. Cash money Green. Points, boards, and some D stats. Granted, last night’s game was against the Nets, but still. Green has been getting the minutes and opportunities.
Marc Gasol did not play. No biggie. What was a big deal, though, was that the freaking Grizzlies ruled out Tyreke Evans a few minutes after lock. Such horse shit. NBA really needs to do something about the injury reporting situation. Anyways, Deyonta Davis got the start at center and played 22 minutes and only scored 2 points with 5 boards. Andrew Harrison was the starting point guard and played 31 minutes and scored 19 points and dished out 8 dimes. He’s baaaaack.
Played 34 minutes. Me thinks the Grizzlies roll with Weber and Harrison at point for the remainder of the season. Hasta la vista, Tyreke. I don’t know why they did not trade him in the first place, then why they played him after the deadline. Makes no sense.
Played 30 minutes. For the month of March, 18 points, 3.1 boards, 2.1 downtowners, 14.8 shot attempts, and 32.8 minutes. The rook is coming into his own.
Wayne Selden played 24 minutes and scored 17 points. What a cluster F the Grizzlies backcourt is.
Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday. Thursday. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. RONDAE!!!! I am so happy right now.
Played 29 minutes. Still loading…..
Got the start at small forward, but only played 22 minutes. He played 39 minutes against CLE the game before and scored 34 points, so naturally, he only gets 22 minutes last night and bombs in a juicy matchup. Upper management must’ve freaked out in the CLE game. This Valentine kid can actually play and maybe get us a win or two. Unacceptable.
Paul Zipser got the start at power forward and played 25 minutes. Enough said.
Got the start at center and played 30 minutes. Do you like to live dangerously?
Got the start at shooting guard and played 18 minutes. Holiday’s resume. Specialty. Ensuring the tank.
Played 26 minutes. Has played 26, 27, 25, 21, and 19 minutes the past five games. Has attempted 12 and 14 shots the last two.
This Bulls team is a cluster F, but there is production to be mined. All a gamble, though.
Tim Hardaway Jr.:
Played 31 minutes. Only Knicks player to get over 30. Wonder why? I count $71 million off the top of my head.
Really, no one else can be trusted on the Knicks. Enes Kanter posted a double-dub of 10 and 13, but he only got 18 minutes of run. Michael Beasley scored 17 points but only played 23 minutes. 8 players received at least 20 minutes.
DEN and MIA went to double OT
Ain’t no Jokic. Till death do us part, Nikola.
Has been playing a ton of minutes. Unfortunately, one game he’ll drop 26, then the next you’ll be muttering to a volleyball.
In a double OT game, Malone essentially went with a seven-man rotation. Crazy.
It took a while, but the real James Johnson has finally been making appearances. I shall now over-rank and over-draft him again next season.
Bam got the start at center, but Kelly has been the man.
Played 23 minutes. Winslow had a nice little run there, but it looks like the playing time and production have skid marks.
Draymond Green left last night’s game early with a pelvic contusion. He played 12 minutes and grabbed three boards before exiting.
Played 38 minutes. Continues to ball out and looks to be the main Cook in the kitchen, now that Dray has joined Steph, KD, and Klay on the injured list. Do we need to check Quinn’s bank account for certain payments to individuals of a Tonya Harding henchmen-esque quality?
The Warriors scored 75 points. No more blurbs for you!!!
Never a laughing matter. Except when it is.
Impressive, both positively and negatively.
What’s not impressive was the game between SA and GS last night. 89-75. No more blurbs for anyone!!!
A B was found at the Lake last night. Woo hoo!!! Before we get too excited, it was against the Kings.
Definitely was not a Dre Day. Didn’t you hear? A B was found at the Lake!!!
The best game Ish has played in a while. Highest scoring output since February 23rd. Over that span, Ish had seven games in which he scored in single digits. Before you get all excited, it was the Kings.
Played 27 minutes. The five games prior: 29, 18, 36, 31, and 31 minutes. SVG hand picked him at #11. Donovan Mitchell went #12. SVG should be arrested.
Played 31 minutes. Should get plenty of run to finish out the season.
Has been straight fire the past four games. 33, 29, 30, and 31 minutes. 20, 23, 22, and 24 points respetively on 15, 15, 13, and 16 shot attempts. Want more? How about 3, 4, 4, and 2 downtowners. Still not impressed? 6, 6, 7, and 6 boards. I can do this all day. 4, 6, 7, and 3 dimes. Vivek knew. Vivek freaking knew. Dummies don’t found a multimillion dollar software company and purchase a NBA team.
