I found these pics today of James practicing yesterday (March 24th).
^I don't want to say it, but these pics add to my suspicion that James has some sort of injury (or injuries) that he's not talking about. I don't mean serious injury, more like a nagging one that doesn't keep you off the court but still effects your game in a way. In his matches over the past month, he seems slower and not tracking down balls like he normally does.
I noticed in those pics the tape over one knee and the brace on the left ankle (I recognized the ASO logo
). I'm not a doom-and-gloom worrywart - I just wonder what's going on.
