LeBron James just made the news a few days ago as he signed a new two-year extension with the Los Angeles Lakers. This deal will give him $97 million over the next couple of years, which means he will be the highest-earning player in NBA history. LeBron James celebrated his new contract by getting a crown with his logo placed on one of his front teeth.

According to NBA analyst David Hookstead, this new jewel James is sporting is a cry for attention, sad and pathetic. “Do we think fans want to see this or do we think fans want to see a deep playoff run? It’d be one thing if the Lakers had been dominant last year, but that wasn’t the case. The team under LeBron’s leadership was terrible,” explained Hookstead.

Now LeBron James will enter the next season with the expectation of returning to the playoffs. But so far the roster is just below average, and besides Anthony Davis, there's no other player that can lead the team if either player gets injured, which right now, is almost a guarantee.

Last year LeBron James had an amazing season despite missing almost 30 games. He averaged 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists last season, and it's not impossible to see him have similar numbers in the upcoming campaign. Let's just see if this new jewel motivates him to lead the team to the playoffs.

Last time LeBron James missed the playoffs two years in a row

LeBron James has been really consistent throughout his career. In fact, the last time LeBron missed the playoffs in consecutive years was in his first two campaigns. Since then, he had been to the playoffs 13 years in a row. Then he missed the playoffs in his first year with the Lakers and finally last season.
