LeBron James, Maverick Carter partner with Drake for Uninterrupted Canada
LeBron James and Maverick Carter are taking their Uninterrupted project north of the border.
LeBron Raymone James Sr. (/ləˈbrɒn/; born December 30, 1984) is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
LeBron James is signing with the Lakers and NBA Twitter is blowing up accordingly. — Did the Sixers win ? There are so many Kobe Bryant fans that just spent 15 years bashing LeBron James . I’ve ALWAYS BEEN A LAKERS FAN ever since LeBron James joined we don’t need you band wagons.
LOS ANGELES - LeBron James is undoubtedly one of the greatest NBA players of all time, and could go down as the greatest by the time he retires. However, he's finding out that being an all-time NBA great doesn't necessarily make you an all-time Lakers great. © Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution/TNS The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James directs his team against the Atlanta Hawks on Feb. 12, 2019, at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
James recently posted an artist's rendering of himself, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant in Lakers uniforms, sitting courtside together as teammates. Under the illustration on Instagram he wrote, "SHEESH??? So HONORED and GRATEFUL to be apart of GREATNESS. P.S. Man o Man that STARTING 5 vs any franchise All-Time. Let's Get it!! #LakeShow #KingMe #Mamba #Diesel #Magic #KingSkyHook"
Magic Johnson defends LeBron's hunger to win
Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin recently questioned whether LeBron James still wants.
Markazi has also written for Slam, King, Vibe and Playboy. On board of directors for Jim Murray Marian Gaborik proved to be a perfect fit for the Kings on their Cup run, writes Arash Markazi . After years of suffering, two Cups in three years won 't be taken for granted by Kings fans , Arash Markazi
If LeBron James Wins 0 Championships He Will Be 12th-Best All-Time. Shaq's legacy will be defined by the need for Wade or Kobe in order for Shaq to win a championship. LeBron will also have trouble passing Larry Bird. Bird was such a great shooter that critics will try to one-up LeBron
The post has nearly 2 million likes but many of the more than 20,000 comments are from Lakers fans reminding James he hasn't done enough wearing purple and gold to be included in that company.
This kind of backlash from Lakers fans is nothing new for James. A mural depicting James along with Chick Hearn, Bryant, O'Neal, Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain was vandalized last year when someone poured white paint over James' image and left the others untouched. Another mural of James in a Lakers uniform was vandalized by someone who spray-painted over his face and wrote, "We don't want you."
Abdul-Jabbar, who played 14 of his 20 seasons for the Lakers, believes James deserves to be on the list of Lakers greats and will begin to show fans why this season.
Arash Markazi: Klay Thompson on whether Warriors will make playoffs and Lakers' big offseason steal
As Klay Thompson walked around Los Angeles recently, he did so without a limp or the assistance of crutches just one month removed from surgery to repair a torn left anterior cruciate ligament he suffered during the NBA Finals. "I feel good, " Thompson said. "I 'm going to come back 110 % ." Dr. Neal ElAttrache performed the procedure on Thompson at the Kerlan Jobe Institute in Los Angeles, and Thompson said he is on track to return to the court at some point next season. "That 's my goal, " Thompson said. "I doubt I 'll be back before the All- Star break, but I want to be back this season.
What does LeBron need to do to be considered the greatest player of all time? Here's what our panel said: " More titles ." "Nothing." " He 's already done it." "Beat the Warriors." "Multiple championships or show he can win a title without an elite supporting cast."
LeBron James has always had the ball in his hands. Will he and Lonzo Ball step on each other’s toes, or can He isn’t so far away that he ’s a lost cause, but he needs to take a leap forward in this aspect of his game to Show Tiempo: Can the Lakers win a championship with Lebron doing everything?
"He's already shown he's still the complete player that the Lakers wanted so I don't think he needs to worry about that," Abdul-Jabbar said Monday during a phone interview while attending the grand opening of NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. "They just needed to put the right pieces in place around him. You can't win a world championship with just one elite player. You need some help and I think he has that now."
Abdul-Jabbar wouldn't make any championship predictions, but he did say the Lakers with James and the additions of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins could win a championship. And he expects Lakers fans to warm up to James if the Lakers are playing meaningful games in May and June after missing the playoffs the last six seasons and failing to win a playoff game since 2012.
"If he plays well and the team is contending and in the playoffs and advancing late in the playoffs that should be enough," Abdul-Jabbar said. "He doesn't have anything to prove to anyone, but Lakers fans are still hungry and that's a good sign. They want to win and they want to support the team."
Anthony Davis thinks Lakers would have been title favorites if they signed Kawhi Leonard, but he’s excited for rivalry with Clippers
Despite missing out on Kawhi Leonard in free agency, Anthony Davis likes where the Lakers are going into the season and is excited to take on Leonard and the Clippers.
He claimed he didn’t know exactly how many points he needed to reach that milestone. Rockets: Houston 'surprised' Blake Griffin avoided penalty. Scoring doesn ’t define James ’ game, but in his 15th season, he has established himself as one of the game’s greatest scorers, with a solid chance to
But perhaps LeBron doesn 't think Cleveland will stay competitive in the future . Or *clears throat loudly* perhaps he likes the attention. Or perhaps he 's just sick of the narrative of "Why can't LeBron James win titles ?!" even when everybody knows it's kind of a BS point because he 's going up
O'Neal posted the same photo James did on his Instagram feed and said he would play power forward with Abdul-Jabbar playing center on that Lakers "dream team." He also said he would put Abdul-Jabbar and Wilt Chamberlain over himself when ranking the best Lakers centers.
"It's nice that Shaq would say that but I've always felt you can't really compare eras," Abdul-Jabbar said. "We don't know how dominant George Mikan was in the late '40s and early '50s. It's just hard to compare one era to the next."
James is fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list behind Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Bryant. He will likely pass Bryant this season, which will create another interesting moment between Lakers fans and James, who is 5,844 points behind Abdul-Jabbar for first on the list.
If James, 34, plays four more seasons he would likely pass Abdul-Jabbar and could finish a 20-year career as the all-time leader in points and the only player to record at least 30,000 points and 10,000 assists. If he wins a championship with the Lakers during that time, he should be thought of as an all-time Lakers great. The best comparison would be Chamberlain, who played the final five seasons of his hall of fame career with the Lakers and won one championship in Los Angeles before retiring.
LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard both planning team minicamps
The battle for NBA dominance in Los Angeles is set to begin in earnest this upcoming season between LeBron James’ Lakers and Kawhi Leonard’s Clippers, and it sounds like the two superstars are already making moves in an effort to get a leg up in the intracity competition. © Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsAccording to a report from Stadium’s Shams Charania, both James and Leonard have taken steps to organize team minicamps to help build chemistry on the respective rosters of the Lakers and Clippers, both of which have undergone significant makeovers this offseason.
Win this title and those murals in Cleveland of James with his arms raised high will stay forever, whether On the Golden State side, Curry has become a little too, well, cavalier. He needs to clean up and Perhaps the most compelling and perhaps the biggest game of his life — though he did win a
Lakers fans seemed to sour on Clarkson over the last year, and it would appear the rest of the NBA has caught up with them. Unless he and Randle make significant strides forward this year, the rest of the league may continue to view them pessimistically in any possible transactions, presenting a real
The key is winning a championship, and that will ultimately determine how Lakers fans view James. The same goes for Davis, who is hoping to become the next great Lakers big man to help them win a title.
"I think Davis is a complete NBA player," Abdul-Jabbar said. "He can do it all on both ends of the court. He's going to be a great addition and the fact that he has played with Cousins before in New Orleans and they'll be teammates again will be good. They have some history, and now they're going to team up with LeBron James.
"They have the nucleus of a very good team. The Lakers have put the right pieces together to be championship contenders this season."

The same tweets and comments come rolling in like clockwork every time a picture, video or story is posted calling the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park the future home of the Rams and Chargers. Variations of "it 's the home of the Rams ; the Chargers are just renters " come flooding in from Rams fans and former Chargers fans in San Diego. It 's understandable. Rams fans don 't want their team to share the stadium and former Chargers fans in San Diego will never understand why the team would leave their home of 56 years to be an afterthought in the crowded Los Angeles sports landscape.
