Let’s say that you’ve never picked up a basketball but decided that without basketball your life was incomplete – bias alert #1!

Would you be better off learning how to shoot from LeBron James, or spending hours and hours of trial and error by yourself without any professional feedback?

The right answer is as obvious as a slam dunk. 

But the thing is, that is exactly what too many small business people do; they open their business and fail to realize that there are a lot of examples of success out there.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel when you run a small business. There are a lot of ways to learn how to score from downtown – and don’t even begin to think that I have yet to tire of this metaphor!

LeBron James wished the Lakers could have a do over. 

History would’ve been made. Champagne would’ve been flying. It would’ve been their golden ticket out of the NBA bubble after an arduous 100-plus day stay. 

But the final moments of Game 5 didn’t go as planned in the Lakers’ 111-108 loss to the Miami Heat. 

With the Lakers down 109-108 and 16.8 seconds left, James penetrated to the basket as all five Heat players collapsed around him. He then passed the ball to a wide open Danny Green. 

Green took one dribble before shooting a three-pointer that clanked off of the front of the rim. Marieff Morris rebounded the ball, but committed a costly turnover, throwing a wild pass attempt to Anthony Davis under the basket that missed him by at least a few feet. 

James wouldn’t have done anything differently. He just knows that could’ve gone a different way.

While we just missed out on a league-leading 13th NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, there’s still history that could be made in this year’s title matchup.

As the Lakers pursue their 17th NBA championship to tie the Celtics for most in league history, veteran guard Rajon Rondo has a chance to make his own piece of history.

Of 27 players in NBA history that have played for both Los Angeles and Boston, no one has ever won a title with both franchises.

Four wins stand between Rondo and the incredible distinction.

I know what you’re thinking – what about Shaquille O’Neal? His title hopes with the Celtics came up short in 2011. What about the Lakers’ Avery Bradley this season? He was drafted in 2011 after Boston had already won the 2008 NBA title.

Take a look at the rather interesting list of players that

The Portland Trail Blazers and the Memphis Grizzlies will face off on Saturday afternoon to determine which team will earn the right to face off against LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

As it stands now heading into Saturday’s game, Portland’s Damian Lillard has been the MVP of the Bubble and is the clear frontrunner for the Bubble d’Or, leading the Blazers to a 6-2 record in the seeding games. He’s averaging 37.6 points, nearly 10 assists, and four rebounds, while shooting almost 44% from the 3-point line on nearly 13 attempts per game. Portland, however, has struggled on the defensive end as only the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks have had a worse defense in the restart. Also being the 8th place team, Portland is entering a double-elimination scenario whereas the Grizzlies will be eliminated with a single
