Earlier today in ESPN's First Talk, Stephen A. Smith and Shannon Sharpe had a debate on which superstar and their team will be winning another title between LeBron James, Kevin Durant, or Stephen Curry.

Surprisingly for Sharpe and the LA Lakers fans, Stephen A. Smith chose Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Smith believes the Warriors have a stronger team overall with the LA Lakers having a weakness when it comes to shooting from deep.

Smith believes the Suns have a weak defensive game and the Lakers won't have enough to win a title, at least not this season. Unlike Shannon Sharpe who believes the purple and gold will at least make it to the Western Conference Finals.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis are content with the group, and now that they have established an identity and are trending in the right direction, they believe with continuity being the key they could be winning it all as they proved during the In-Season Tournament seven games winning the championship.

LeBron James has an injury he wants to heal soon

James arrived at All-Star Weekend on Sunday, rather than Saturday like the rest of the All-Stars, because he was seeking treatment on his left ankle that caused him to sit out L.A.'s last game before the break -- a 138-122 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. "Trying to get my ankle as strong and as back to where I feel confident that I can finish off this last third of the season," James said. "I won't be playing the entire game tonight, for sure. I can get out there and run around with the young guys for a little bit and then shut it down at some point to give my body, and my ankle more importantly, another opportunity to rest."
