Amazon’s ‘The Man in the High Castle’ to End With Fourth Season

Amazon’s ‘The Man in the High Castle’ to End With Fourth Season “The Man in the High Castle” is coming to an end. Amazon Prime Video said Tuesday that the dystopian alt-history series will end with its fourth season, which will premiere in the fall. “It has been a great privilege to work alongside our extraordinary ‘High Castle’ team, in partnership with David Zucker and Scott Free, to bring my father’s classic novel to life, particularly during this tumultuous period in our real world. I believe fans will be thrilled and satisfied by the epic conclusion we have in store for them,” said executive producer Isa Dick Hackett.

The Los Angeles Lakers ’ season has been divided into two distinct and profoundly different times: before LeBron James got injured on Christmas Day, and after. Before James went down with a groin injury that cost him 17 games, LA was 20-14 and optimistic.

James’ tone has shifted, from excitement in joining the Lakers to annoyance with his team’s struggles mid-season.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ season has been divided into two distinct and profoundly different times: before LeBron James got injured on Christmas Day, and after.

Before James went down with a groin injury that cost him 17 games, LA was 20-14 and optimistic. Now, two months later, things have crashed and burned, and the team is in serious danger of missing the postseason. As of March 4, they are 30-33, in 10th place in the West and 4.5 games (plus the tiebreaker) behind the Spurs for the No. 8 seed. This is significant, as James has made the postseason for 13 straight years, not to mention his eight-season Finals streak.

His vibe with the team has also changed. At the beginning of his tenure in LA, James seemed more willing to wait on the growth of his young teammates. That progressed into all of those teammates being tossed in trade rumors involving Anthony Davis ahead of the deadline. Now that a deal didn’t happen, there’s shades of passive-aggressiveness in James’ tone.

Here’s a look at LAs season through the cryptic, upbeat, and self-appraising words of James.

July 29: This is a “dream come true”

Via Uninterrupted:

“This is, this is kinda like a dream come true for me,” James said. “You know, growing up I was a Cowboys fan, I was a Bulls fan, I was a Yankees fan, and I’ve always felt like that was like one of the historic franchises. You look at the Lakers, being able to play for a historic franchise you know, with so much history you know.”

Lakers left with one big question: Does Magic Johnson know what he's doing?

Lakers left with one big question: Does Magic Johnson know what he's doing? Lakers fans should be concerned with the direction of the team as long as Magic Johnson is in charge. Their chances of making the playoffs are growing slimmer by the day, and another summer full of failures appears to be on the horizon. Read More

July 30: James explains why he didn’t demand a trade for another star

Because I love the young guys that they have, and I’m not trying to force my hand in no way, shape or form,” James told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. “I believe Rob [Pelinka] and Magic [Johnson] and Jeanie [Buss] have done an unbelievable job of reshaping what the organization should be, keeping Dr. Buss’ dreams and what he was all about, to keep that going. I feel like they know what’s best for the team and I wanted to be a piece to continue that motion of being back to a championship franchise where they should be.

Oct. 11: James will “be as patient as I can be” with the young guys

“I would never get into [an East-West] conversation like that,” James told Yahoo Sports, referring to the immediate departure of Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and Dion Waiters upon his return to Cleveland in 2014. “‘Oh, he’s competitive in the East, but [the West is different].’ I’m well respected by my peers and that’s all that matters. I’m going to be as patient as I can be. I know I got a young squad, but these guys are willing to learn and I’m willing to learn with them.”

Oct. 20: James makes an interesting statement

“There’s a lot of excitement today,” James said. “A lot of excitement for our fans I believe, from the city. We’re excited to showcase to our fans what we’ve been working on for the last month. I can promise to our fans we’re not the team tonight that we’re gonna be in January and February, but we will be extremely excited to be out there.”

That line raised Silver Screen and Roll’s eyebrows at the time, and looks especially poignant now.

Following L.A’s 110-106 loss to the Spurs — which dropped the Lakers to 2-4 on the season — James put a graphic on Instagram showing he’d moved up to No. 6 on the NBA’s All-Time scoring list.

Oct. 30: “You probably don’t want to be around when my patience runs out.”

James said this after the Lakers fell to 2-5 on the season. In fairness, he was led on a bit by reporters.

“We talk about patience but you can’t have reoccurrence of the same thing,” James told reporters after the loss to the Timberwolves.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Renewed for Season 7

In the Lakers ' 2016- 17 media guide, the directory lists 72 staffers who aren't a part of the ownership group. During the session, Pelinka quoted scripture. Another story took place on June 21, 2018, when Lakers staffers gathered at their practice facility for that year's NBA draft.

Lakers ' Howard: 'No basketball' until reform.

“If you are doing the same things over and over and over and expecting the same result then that’s insanity.

“So we have to get better. We can’t keep having the same mistakes over and over.”

Q: You’ve mentioned patience this whole year. At what point does that patience run out, and what do you look like as a leader when your patience does run out?

JAMES: “You probably don’t want to be around when my patience runs out. I’m serious.”

Dec. 19: James is excited about the idea of playing with Anthony Davis

“That would be amazing,” James told ESPN on before the Lakers’ 115-110 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, referring to the Lakers landing Davis through a trade. “That would be amazing, like, duh. That would be incredible.”

The Lakers were 18-13 at the time of this quote, but things were about to turn.

Dec. 22: James expanded his list to show he’d welcome all star players to LA

From Silver Screen and Roll:

“Ask me would I like to play with Kevin Durant,” James said.

When a reporter asked James exactly that, James said “absolutely,” and then went on to further his argument by basically listing a group of players that he’d like to play with.

“Ask me if I’d like to play with Jimmy Butler. Ask me about Kyrie Irving. Giannis. Ask me about Embiid, Ben Simmons. Go ahead, all of them. Luka Doncic. Ask me right now. Come on, guys. It’s not rocket science,” James said. “These are great players, absolutely I would love to play with a lot of great players. That’s just who I am.”

Opinion: Lakers' playoff hopes are over after sorry loss to league-worst Suns

Opinion: Lakers' playoff hopes are over after sorry loss to league-worst Suns There are still 19 games and five weeks left in the regular season, but due to their own ineptitude these Lakers are done, writes Martin Rogers.

James was trying to diffuse his Davis comments, but it didn’t work.

Dec. 26: James is “not concerned” about his groin injury

“With me, with injuries, I’m never too concerned about them. I was able to walk off under my own power. I felt a pop and tried to see if i could stretch it a few times if it’d relieve, but it didn’t.”

James suffered the injury on Christmas Day and went on to miss 18 games. The Lakers went 6-12 in those contests.

Feb. 5: ‘Fantasy basketball

James was asked about the ongoing Davis rumors that many felt he — or at least his friend’s Rich Paul’s agency, Klutch Sports — initiated.

The Lakers lost by 42 (!) points to the Pacers, who were without Victor Oladipo.

The Lakers’ Disappointing Season Means It’s Time to Prepare for the Future

The Lakers’ Disappointing Season Means It’s Time to Prepare for the Future I’d like to start off this article by saying I was wrong. With 23 games left in the season, I thought LeBron James would take the onus on himself to will the Lakers into the postseason. I thought a healthier Lakers squad would emerge from the cluster at the bottom of the Western Conference playoff picture. I was wrong. While the Lakers are not mathematically out of the playoff race with 18 games left, realistically, they are not going to make the postseason after Monday’s 113-105 loss to the Clippers.

Feb. 13: James doesn’t seem worried about the playoffs

“You either make it or you don’t make it. That’s when you worry about it.”

That was his response when asked. Then, he was asked if the team lost focus after the hyped up trade deadline:

“That’s a possibility.”

Feb. 20 : “I don’t fear nothing”

The reality of being a sub-.500 team is starting to set in here.

“It’s been a while. It’s been quite a while for me since I’ve been under .500 going into the All-Star break. I don’t remember the last time. So my level of intensity — for me unfortunately because I don’t like to do it at such an early time — has been activated, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do,” James said after practice on Wednesday.

“I don’t fear nothing. I don’t fear,” James said, repeating “I don’t fear” once more for emphasis. “I’m all about being uncomfortable. I fall in love with being uncomfortable, so this is another uncomfortable thing for me and I love it.”

Feb. 23: James says he’s not accustomed to losing

“The last few years, everyone’s so accustomed to the losses that I’m just not accustomed to. I’m not accustomed to it, I’d never get comfortable with losing. Losing game one to Houston, it feels the same way as losing game 59 in New Orleans, for me. That’s just how I’m built. That’s who I am.”

For the record, the Lakers lost Game 59 to an Anthony Davis-less New Orleans team by 13 points.

Feb. 25: James sounds off about distractions

After a second consecutive embarrassing loss, this time to the Marc Gasol-less Grizzlies, James took a bit of a leading question from a reporter and made a statement. James was asked if the constant talk about the playoffs with 20-something games to go was a distraction for the team.

His response:

“At this point, if you are still allowing distractions to affect the way you play, then this is the wrong franchise to be a part of, and you should just come in and say, ‘I can’t do this.’ Like, seriously, if you’re distracted by playoff pushes and all the stuff we’ve been talking about this year, then...

LeBron James passes Michael Jordan for 4th in career scoring

LeBron James passes Michael Jordan for 4th in career scoring LeBron James moved past Michael Jordan into fourth place on the NBA's career scoring list Wednesday night.The Los Angeles Lakers superstar scored his 32,293rd point on a driving layup in the second quarter against the Denver Nuggets, getting fouled in the act and hitting the ensuing free throw.This achievement was particularly special to James, who grew up in Ohio idolizing Jordan.

“Just come and do you job; we’ll do our job at a high level, and that’s not a distraction. That’s what you want. Every game you want to feel like you’re fighting for something.”
