ESPN’s highest-paid sportscaster with an annual salary nearly $8 million Stephen A. Smith and former hip hop artist Max Kellerman discuss whether they have more faith in the Los Angeles Lakers point forward LeBron James or LA Clippers small forward Kawhi Leonard to deliver during the restart of the 2019-20 NBA season:

In 60 games so far this season, James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 10.6 assists per game, while shooting at 49.8% from the floor and 34.9% from deep.

Meanwhile, Leonard is averaging 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 5.0 assists per game, while shooting at 46.9% from the field and 36.6% from three in 51 games.

The Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers are set to play on first night of seeding games in NBA Bubble.

The Clippers are currently second in the Western Conference just behind the Lakers.
