    Getty LeBron James would love to play with Luka Doncic. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James revealed an interesting choice for his favorite player during an impromptu question and answer session on Twitter. James was asked by a fan who his favorite player under 25 is and the Lakers star did not hesitate to express his love for Luka Doncic. “LUKA. He’s my fav player!!” James tweeted on May 16 in response to being asked to name his favorite young NBA player. Unfortunately, James is at home watching the playoffs while Doncic has helped the Mavericks advance to the Western Conference Finals, the deepest postseason run of his young career. James’ comments are of particular interest given ESPN’s Brian Windhorst recently detailed the superstar’s desire to play with Doncic. “I would say something else though as part of this answer, and LeBron was having fun here, to be clear,” Windhorst noted during an April 7 episode of “Get Up.” “He wasn’t making a declarative statement. He talked about how much he admires Luka Doncic, and...
    Getty LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers posts up against Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James are on different teams now.

    Getty Lakers superstar LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers have been a walking disaster this season despite LeBron James putting up incredible numbers. The four-time MVP, who is 37 and in his 19th campaign, is averaging 29.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists, but the Lakers are only 29-40. LeBron has been one of two bright spots for the Lakers this season. The other has been the play of Malik Monk, who is putting up 12.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 46.4% from the field, 39.4% from beyond the arc and 76.7% from the free-throw line. LeBron has been a fan of Monk for a long time and believes the Kentucky product possesses something that the Lakers lack.

    Has the "King" finally cracked? Amid the Los Angeles Lakers' most recent blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors on Monday, fans of LeBron James saw his frustrations turn into two outbursts. Both incidents were caught on camera. JUSSIE SMOLLETT'S LAWYERS SEEK EMERGENCY RELEASE AFTER SODOMY THREAT The first outburst came during the second quarter when the Lakers gave up an offensive rebound and James, 37, was on the wrong end of a foul call. The Raptors had been leading by 24 points in the first quarter, and the basketball star's frustration boiled over. LeBron is very mad pic.twitter.com/TS8EK8lq7V— Italo Santana (@BulletClubIta) March 15, 2022 James grabbed the ball, slammed it on the court, and let a myriad of "F***"s fly, according to footage the incident posted to social media. The second outburst during the third quarter was a bit more violent. While chasing down a ball headed out of bounds, James tried to keep possession by spiking the ball into the face of Toronto rookie Scottie Barnes. ???? pic.twitter.com/FM7tTON69j—...
    Getty Lakers star LeBron James, left, and the Warriors' Stephen Curry And now there are seven. It has not been easy lately for the Warriors’ Stephen Curry, but he is still on the precipice of NBA history, needing just seven 3-pointers to surpass Ray Allen for the league’s all-time record. When it comes to a milestone like that, one of the league’s foremost active historians—LeBron James of the Lakers—is certain to have a take. James was asked after the Lakers’ win in Oklahoma City for his perspective on Curry, whom he faced four times in the NBA Finals as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. James is also in the rare position of not only playing against Curry but of having played with Allen, when the two were teammates in Miami. “I wish I could be there to congratulate him but I will be there, I will be one of the guys in our league that will congratulate him socially and things of that nature,” James said. “But, listen, I know Ray and I know the work that...
    Getty LeBron James with Jeanie Buss.

The series will focus on the Showtime Lakers of the 1980s and features portrayals of legendary members of the franchise like Jerry Buss, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, among others. Though LeBron James has only been with the team for a few years, he’s excited to see the series. He reacted to the trailer and was blown away. WOW!!!! I can’t wait for this! The myth, The man, The LEGEND! Dr. Buss and his magic man Magic Johnson! ???????????????????????? https://t.co/42zpPOFBOm — LeBron James (@KingJames) December 11, 2021 The series is produced by Adam McKay of The Big Short and Vice fame and will be released in March of 2022.

    Getty Images LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers dropped to 12-12 with a loss to the Clippers on Friday night and LeBron James had a healthy amount of praise for Ty Lue following the matchup. The Clippers drilled three consecutive 3-pointers to seal the game and hold off a late Lakers charge, leading LeBron James to deliver some strong comments on his former head coach. “T-Lue is great. Simple as that. Obviously you guys know I played for him and what we was able to do. T-Lue is great,” James told reporters after the game. “He’s great at every facet of the game. As a coach, he doesn’t have a weakness.” James’ co-star Anthony Davis was also impressed with Lue down the stretch with his play-calling. “They knew we were rotating, and T-Lue out of the time out, instead of having Luke Kennard cut through, he went strong side and kind of put us in a jam,” Davis said postgame. “Great play call.”Frank Vogel Under Fire as Lakers Struggle Getty ImagesHead coach...

The video, which was posted on YouTube, featured plays from Week 3 to Week 6.

    Getty LeBron James with Isaiah Thomas. There was a brief time when Isaiah Thomas was one of the best players in the NBA. Back in 2017, he finished fifth in MVP voting after averaging 28.9 points a game for the Boston Celtics. Unfortunately, a devastating hip injury derailed his career and he’s had a difficult time staying on a roster since. Recently, Thomas made headlines by dropping 81 points pro-am event. That game caught the attention of many, including the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Marc Stein. The team could be interested in adding the former All-Star guard this offseason. Interestingly enough, before Stein’s report dropped, LeBron James sent a message to Thomas on Twitter regarding his 81-point performance. Yessir Killa!! Keep going my G! #TMC???? https://t.co/iYxIMjNE3D — LeBron James (@KingJames) August 11, 2021 It could merely be a coincidence as LeBron and Thomas did briefly play together on the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the timing is certainly interesting. LeBron knows everything the Lakers plan to do and they would certainly consult him before they targeted one of his...

    Getty Damian Lillards old comments about the Lakers are going viral. Damian Lillard’s comments about the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017 have taken on new meaning given the superstar’s increasing unhappiness with the Portland Trail Blazers. At the time, Lillard was asked by a fan where he would like to play if the Blazers were no longer an option. “If blazers said they didn’t want me… Utah Jazz or Lakers,” Lillard tweeted on June 14, 2017. The old tweet has once again gone viral with all eyes on Lillard’s future this offseason. For context, the tweet came a little more than one year after Kobe Bryant retired and before LeBron James or Anthony Davis headed west. We know Lillard maintains a close relationship with James, but the Lakers will find it challenging to put together an appealing trade package for the Blazers star. The Lakers can only offer their current draft pick along with selections beginning in 2027 as a result of the Davis trade with the Pelicans. With limited draft capital and few tradeable assets,...
    LeBron James. Mark J. Terrill/AP Images LeBron James blamed the compressed NBA schedule for several injuries to star players. The NBA completed last season in October, began this one in December, and will finish in July. James said he understood the benefits, but tried to warn that it would hurt players in the long run. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. LeBron James slammed the compressed NBA schedule amid a slew of injuries to some of the league's biggest stars. The NBA had its shortest offseason ever in 2020, finishing the NBA Finals in the Disney World bubble on October 11, then beginning the 2020-21 regular season on December 22. Training camps started in early December. James tweeted on Wednesday that he tried to warn the league (presumably the NBA's Board of Governors and Players Association) that such a short offseason would have implications. "They all didn't wanna listen to me about the start of the season," James said in a series of tweets. "I knew exactly what would happen. I only wanted to protect the well...
    LeBron James went back to the locker room with more than five minutes remaining in the blowout playoff loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, which put the Los Angeles Lakers on the brink of elimination. James was taken out of the game as the Suns were leading 105-73. Phoenix would go on to win the game 115-85 and go up 3-2 on the defending NBA champions. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM James led the Lakers with 24 points, but without Anthony Davis the team didn’t even come close to gaining an advantage in the series. "The King" played 32 minutes and was not on the bench for the final 5:44. "We got our ass kicked. It is that simple," he said after losing consecutive first-round games for the first time in his 15-year career. "They did whatever they wanted to win this game."

    Getty Anthony Davis with LeBron James. After many lackluster games, Anthony Davis is officially back. The Los Angeles Lakers star has had his worst season since he was a rookie and didn’t look very good when he returned from injury. Based on his recent play, it appears he’s back to superstar form. He scored 36 points against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday and followed that up with a 42 point performance against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. If Davis is back to form, the Lakers will be much more formidable. However, they aren’t winning the title if LeBron James doesn’t get back on the court soon. Fortunately, it sounds like he’s getting a lot better. “What I seen from LeBron today … he’s … he’ll be fine,” Davis said after Sunday’s game. “Trust me. He’ll be fine.” There’s been a lot of concern surrounding the superstar considering he’s 36-years-old and is clearly having trouble with this ankle injury. With the playoffs starting up very soon, Los Angeles needs their leader back on the court. If Davis is correct,...
    LeBron James is not happy with the creator of the NBA’s play-in tournament. “Whoever came up with that s–t needs to be fired,” James said on Sunday, according to ESPN, following the Lakers 121-114 loss to the Raptors. His response came after being reminded of the reigning champion Lakers’ 71-day offseason after last season’s COVID-delayed NBA Finals in the Orlando bubble. At 36-28, the Lakers are in a three-way tie with the Mavericks and Blazers for the No. 5 seed. As the Southwest Division leaders, the Mavericks have the No. 5 seed and the Lakers sit at No. 6 with the tiebreaker over the Blazers. The top six teams in each conference automatically advance to the playoffs, while 7-10 are in the play-in tournament. James joins the growing number of players, including Mavericks star Luka Doncic, who’ve complained about the play-in format, which was created in the NBA bubble season. The teams with the seventh-highest and eighth-highest winning percentages in each conference will have two opportunities to win one game to earn a playoff spot. The seventh and...
    FORMER President Donald Trump name-checked hoop superstar LeBron James for posting a tweet taking aim at the Ohio cop who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant on Tuesday.  “LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA,” Trump wrote in a statement, before mocking the league for its “lowest television RATINGS” in its history. 4Former President Donald Trump criticized NBA superstar Lebron James for being "racist" when the athlete weighed in on the police-involved shooting death of Ma'Khia Bryant “His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” the statement said. “He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!” The searing rebuke from the 45th president comes after the hoops phenom James tweeted a photo of Columbus Police Officer Nicholas Reardon who allegedly shot the deadly bullets that felled Bryant under the all-capped caption: “YOU’RE NEXT” and a hashtag that read: “#ACCOUNTABILITY” 4The moment before Columbus Police Officer Nicholas Reardon fired gunshots that killed Ma'Khia Bryant, 16, who was witnessed allegedly wielding a knife in a...
