Even with the Lakers season effectively over, some NBA experts believed that there was a chance LeBron James played at least two more games before LA’s season is officially over. Why two? Because LeBron needs to appear in at least two more games to qualify for the NBA scoring title. 

LeBron has been dealing with a sprained left ankle since March 27th. Due to the injury, LeBron has missed six of the Lakers last eight games and all three of LA’s most recent games.
