LeBron on the Zion recruiting trip: ‘I didn’t talk to anybody’

LeBron on the Zion recruiting trip: ‘I didn’t talk to anybody’ LeBron did not appreciate the accusations, but he did enjoy the Zion Show.

That ' s such a weird way of phrasing it that I can't tell if you mean he has an adopted son, step-son, or no son at all. [–] Wind88 11 points12 points13 points 1 day ago (0 children). That ' s not how he works .

The show ran from 2005-2013 but is still watched just as much today. Join us as we discuss the When I watched that episode I thought to myself He's gonna say a line about magic that ' s pretty Like, the devil can't really take your soul for losing a bet, that ' s not how he works ; he tempts you into

David Griffin knows LeBron James better than most. Griffin, the former GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers, was instrumental in helping LeBron deliver a championship to the city of Cleveland and is known as one of LeBron's favorite front office executives of his career.

Griffin's successful working relationship with James, and LeBron's vocal support of Griffin, goes against common perception. Since LeBron entered the league in 2003 there has been a perception he is the de facto general manager of whatever organization he's playing for at the time. Griffin tried to dispel the LeBron-as-GM myth over the weekend.

LeBron sends odd tweet in middle of Super Bowl

LeBron sends odd tweet in middle of Super Bowl While everyone was complaining about the Super Bowl, LeBron James added some spice with a tweet. During the third quarter of the big game, LeBron sent a tweet asking where reporters Shams Charania, Adrian Wojnarowski, Chris B. Haynes and Dave McMenamin were. Man where Shams, Woj, Haynes, McMenamin at????…. — LeBron James (@KingJames) February 4, 2019 The tweet left many puzzled.

“ That ' s not how he works , Dean.” “Wow, Sammy. Are you jealous? “Yeah. I was.” “ That ' s cute, but pointless.” “Is it?” Sam wedged a thick thigh between his brothers legs, nestling against Deans' dick and the heavy Dean hesitated as he pulled his gun from inside his pants, his hips pushing against Sam.

“ He is very interested in understanding the past, but he is not a Proustian writer – he is not out to redeem the past, he is exploring what you have to forget in order to survive in the first place, as an individual or as a society,” she said, adding – in the wake of last year’ s uproar about Dylan – that she

While making an appearance on ESPN LA's The Sedano Show on Friday, Griffin addressed how he approached personnel decisions with LeBron during his time in Cleveland:

He didn't try to have input with personnel with us…I talked to LeBron, I talked to Kevin Love, I talked to Kyrie about a lot of the pieces that we were going to be bringing in.

LeBron's a basketball savant, so I would talk to him about players often, and his understanding of what the team needs is as good as anyone you could ever get input from so I would certainly seek it out. LeBron's not going to anybody's office and banging the door down saying 'I want, I need,' that's not how he works, and as long as you have the kind of direct relationship with him where he respects you enough to sit there and have conversation with you you get a great deal out of it. You just can't need to go through an intermediary because that's when things get confusing.

Kevin Durant has great answer about being picked by LeBron for All-Star Game

Kevin Durant has great answer about being picked by LeBron for All-Star Game Kevin Durant had a great answer about being picked by LeBron James for the All-Star Game for the second year in a row. The NBA has changed its All-Star Game format to make players from each conference team captains who then draft their roster. Two years in a row, LeBron has taken Durant with the No. 1 overall pick. Durant was asked about that Friday night and had a perfect answer: “What else is he supposed to do?” KD on LeBron picking him first in the #NBAAllStar draft: "What else is he supposed to do?" #GameTimepic.twitter.com/pwsV1d822m — NBA TV (@NBATV) February 9, 2019 Matter-of-fact. Simple. True.

That ' s simply how he 's always been taught, improvising in different situations and honing his instincts. He's a quick study (as evidenced by trained fighters like Blueno and freaking Rayleigh) and has I guess, but that ' s not how he works . To clutter his mind and adhere to regiment hasn't been

The most fascinating piece of Griffin's snippet is the end.

Griffin's assertion about things getting confusing once an intermediary is involved between LeBron and the front office is interesting considering that Rich Paul has seemingly done most of the communication with the Lakers' front office so far during LeBron's time in Los Angeles. Does LeBron not fully trust or respect Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson's front office track record?

After whiffing on Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Anthony Davis trades, it's a fair question to ask.
