“This player is a steal for the Lakers”: the player who shocks LeBron!
Dominating this Friday night against the Nuggets, even without Anthony Davis, the Lakers had a smile after the game. LeBron James had a big game, while an amazing player scored many points: Max Christie. The rookie has shown that he can bring great things…
After a few defeats in recent weeks, the Lakers made a successful performance this Friday night against the Nuggets. A success on the score of 126-108, acquired after returning from the locker room without the presence of Anthony Davis. Interior got hurt again and could miss a few weeks of competition. Fortunately, other players took the opportunity to showcase themselves.
The Lakers rookie seduces the Lakers!
No one will be surprised to learn that LeBron James assumed his status. With 30 points and 9 rebounds, with a differential of +26, the King did his job to lead his team to victory. He was not alone, as evidenced by the excellent passage of Max Christie, the rookie of the Angelinos. With 6 points and 3 rebounds in a few minutes (+14 differential), the guard made a good impression in this game.

Max Christie was a real steal for the Lakers, just what they need.
It must be said that Christie is above all a shooter, which benefits the Lakers in this season. If the rookie manages to stand out, simply putting a few baskets in his minutes, it would be a nice addition for Darvin Ham and his men. Even LeBron was won over after the game:
I really liked the effort put into this match. The match ball should go to Thomas Bryant, as should rookie Max Christie. He came off the bench and was able to provide some wonderful minutes, especially with AD absent in the second half.
Has Max Christie managed to find a place in the Lakers rotation? Darvin Ham should in any case give him another chance in the more or less near future. Fans and LeBron James are under the spell of the rookie.
