LeBron James:

latest news at page 1:
    If we’re going to mock wide receivers who celebrate touchdowns while their team is down by three scores, we should give LeBron James the same treatment. Sunday night, with the Los Angeles Lakers trailing the Miami Heat by 24 points, James capped off a fast break opportunity with a powerful dunk. The very next play, James picked off a Miami pass, drove the length of the floor and absorbed a lot of contact before scoring two more points. James responded to the bucket by standing underneath the rim with both arms up in the air to show off his massive biceps and flex for the crowd. Unfortunately, James posed for a celebration while the Lakers were still getting blown out by 20 points. The NBA on ESPN even tweeted the video of James driving to the rim and celebrating, but curiously cut out the score. Los Angeles clawed their way back into the game, but ultimately lost to Miami 113-107, despite 33 points from James. Currently, James is averaging 29 points per game, which is good for second in the...
    Getty LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling but LeBron James has been on one of the best offensive tears of his career, notching his 17th consecutive game with 25-plus points during a 113-107 loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday. James has been carrying the load with Anthony Davis sidelined, with his streak of scoring coinciding with when the big man was sidelined with a knee injury. Davis is expected to return within the week but James doesn’t see that changing his output too much. “I don’t need to score 30 a night, but I’m in one of the best zones offensively I’ve been in, in my career,” James told reporters after the Lakers’ latest loss, which dropped them to 23-24. “And I don’t plan on stopping. That’s just how I feel. I feel fantastic. Shooting the ball extremely well. Didn’t shoot the 3-ball well tonight, but all eight of them felt great. Shooting efficient from the free throw line, shooting efficient from the field. Very efficient at the rim.” LeBron...
    Getty Images Lakers star Anthony Davis will not return Sunday. The Los Angeles Lakers could be welcoming Anthony Davis back to the lineup soon, but it will not be Sunday against the Miami Heat. Davis has been out with a sprained MCL for the past five weeks and was originally listed as a game-time decision for Sunday’s matchup against the Heat. He’s missed 16 games with the injury, with the Lakers going 7-9 over that span. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel officially ruled out Davis prior to Sunday’s game. Vogel said he’s getting closer to a return but noted it was unlikely that he’d be back so soon during the road trip. Frank Vogel says they knew "it was unlikely" that Anthony Davis would not play today against the Heat. — Ryan Ward (@RyanWardLA) January 23, 2022 Prior to the injury, Davis was averaging 23.3 points on 52.1% shooting, 9.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists. Where Davis has really been missed is on the defensive end, where he’s averaging 2.0 blocks, 1.2 steals and is a dominant presence in...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Steph Curry slipped from his top spot in the All-Star voting. Latest returns show Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James passed Curry in the West by a thick margin. James closed in on Curry’s 77,034-vote lead and now leads Curry by 808,031 votes in the third round. James has 6,827,449 votes and Curry 6,019,418. The top vote-getter in the West and East conference is elected team captain. Fan voting ends on Saturday ant 9 p.m. PT and starters are announced Thursday, Jan. 27. If the voting holds, James would represent the West as team captain and Brooklyn Nets star — currently out with a sprained knee — would be the East’s captain. Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins remains in line to be selected a starter, too. With 2,644,571 votes, he sits third in the front court voting behind James and Denver’s Nikola Jokic. Klay Thompson, who had collected a good number of votes before returning from his Achilles and ACL injuries, is inching higher in the ranks. Among guards, he sits behind Curry, Memphis’...
    Cleveland Cavaliers guard Darius Garland has played exceptionally well in his third season in the NBA, earning some hype as a potential All-Star. In 40 games, Garland is averaging 19.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 8 assists and 1.3 steals per game and has been huge in getting the Cavaliers back to the top of the Eastern Conference.

    LeBron James offered serious praise for Stanley Johnson following an impressive Jan. 17 performance against the Utah Jazz.  With top draft players that have moved around quite a bit, it can sometimes be difficult to remember how they entered the league. For Stanley Johnson, a 25-year-old Lakers forward who was originally drafted by the Detroit Pistons, one person wanted to remind everyone that he was drafted eighth overall in 2015: LeBron James. LeBron, on Stanley Johnson: "People forget that he was a top 10 pick in our league… Hes a guy whos hungry." And on Austin Reaves: "We got a gem in Austin… I watched a lot of film on him when we acquired him… I knew he would make an immediate impact on our ball club." — Harrison Faigen (@hmfaigen) January 18, 2022 “People forget that he was a top 10 pick in our league,” James said after the game. “He’s a guy who’s hungry.” As journalist Harrison Faigen added, Johnson was a lottery pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.Newly-acquired Laker Stanley Johnson scores big praise from LeBron...
    LeBron James scored 25 points and Stanley Johnson had 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Los Angeles Lakers to a 101-95 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Russell Westbrook added 15 points and the Lakers snapped a three-game losing streak, rebounding after an ugly 37-point loss to the Denver Nuggets two days earlier. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Mike Conley had 20 points and Rudy Gobert had a double double with 19 points and 16 rebounds for the Jazz. Johnson, who was just re-signed to another 10-day contract earlier in the day, scored six consecutive points in the fourth quarter. He tied the game at 83 with a 15-foot pull-up jumper, and he later scored a layup with a nice move around Rudy Gobert to give the Lakers a 89-87 lead. James had suggested the smaller Lakers lineup attack Gobert and the basket. It worked.

    Getty Images Lakers star LeBron James. LeBron James was surprisingly silent earlier this week after a blowout loss to the Denver Nuggets but the Los Angeles Lakers superstar said it was for good reason. James skipped out on his media availability for just the second time this season after the Lakers’ largest loss of the season on Saturday to Denver. He explained why he did so after taking down the Jazz on Monday 101-95 in comeback fashion. “I had time to collect my thoughts but I didn’t like what was going to come out of my mouth,” James told reporters. “So I decided not to speak with you guys because I understand some things I say can be everywhere. I didn’t want that for my teammates at the point in time, so I decided to stay silent.” "It wasn't about anyone else. It was about our fans and letting them know that I got this and it won't happen again." @KingJames with @LakersReporter on his tweet after the loss to Denver. #LakeShow pic.twitter.com/ex5bwo72kF — Spectrum SportsNet (@SpectrumSN) January...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Superstar LeBron James issued an apology to Los Angeles Lakers fans Sunday after the team’s latest setback. LeBron James of the Lakers goes to the basket against the Denver Nuggets at Ball Arena on Jan. 15, 2022 in Denver. (Getty Images) The Denver Nuggets torched the Lakers by 37 points Saturday night. After a four-game winning streak, the Lakers have lost three straight to drop under .500. They have a 21-22 record and are clinging to the No. 8 seed in the competitive Western Conference. “#LakerNation I apologize and I promise we’ll be better!” James tweeted Sunday. The Lakers came into the season with championship aspirations after trading for future hall of famer Russell Westbrook in the offseason. However, they have sorely underachieved. With the oldest average roster in the NBA, their stars have struggled to stay on the court. James and Anthony Davis have missed a combined 28 games this season due to injuries. Davis has been out with a sprained MCL since mid-December. Lakers legend Magic Johnson also called out the team after Saturday’s...
    Getty Images LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron James was suspiciously absent from his media availability following the Los Angeles Lakers‘ largest loss of the season against the Denver Nuggets but emerged Sunday with a tweet addressing his team’s struggles. The Lakers were blown out by the Nuggets 133-96, which was the worst loss for James personally since February of 2019. He’s the unquestioned leader of the squad, so his silence after the loss spoke volumes. It was just the second time this season he chose not to speak after a game. James felt like he needed to say something and took to social media to deliver the message. “Laker Nation.

The Lakers trailed by 10 but cut it to 118-116 following a layup by James. Fox came back with a 12-footer near the right elbow and, after Russell Westbrook missed a 3-pointer, Metu made his big shot from the top of the arc.

The latter recently told this fascinating story. And Stephen Curry One of the biggest point guards in history, few could have predicted him in his early years in the league. The usual injured ankle was discussed by the Warriors leader in the early 2010s, with many saying that the Californians were betting too much on him.

    Following the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, LeBron James complimented Ja Morant’s incredible chasedown block that aided their win.  In their marvelous 127-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Memphis Grizzlies brought the heat to L.A., pushing the Lakers to perfectly execute on every shot. And even on perfectly-executed shots, the Grizzlies had an answer — especially with Ja Morant’s jaw-dropping two-handed block that prevented what should have been an easy layup. JA MORANT ????

    Getty LA Lakers star LeBron James reacts to a play during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Regardless of what LeBron James puts on his shoes, there’s no doubting the fact that it’s still good to be the King. Even as the Los Angeles Lakers have scuffled in 2021-22, the 37-year-old is having an MVP-type season for his club and no one is really saying otherwise. If you ask Memphis Grizzlies fans — and even the team’s announcers — they’ll probably tell you that things are going so well for James, in fact, that the referees are giving him carte blanche to do what he wants. During the second quarter of the Lakers’ home loss to the Grizz on Sunday, Desmond Bane took the ball to the hoop and drew a foul for an and-one opportunity. As he walked to the free-throw line, James pushed him and began to yell at him. When the officials opted not to call anything amid the kerfuffle, Memphis’ commentary team nearly blew a gasket. In doing so, they seemed to ignore the...

    LeBron James scored 23 of his 32 points in the second half, Malik Monk added a season-high 29 and the Los Angeles Lakers held off the Atlanta Hawks 134-118 Friday night for their first four-game winning streak of the season. Avery Bradley and Talen Horton-Tucker scored 21 points apiece for the Lakers, who have won five of six overall while remaining perfect on a five-game homestand that ends Sunday. With Anthony Davis the only major contributor still absent from their injury-plagued roster, the Lakers had a season-high 37 assists and continued to play their most cohesive basketball of their tumultuous season. "We’re getting our guys back," said James, who also had nine assists, eight rebounds, four steals and three blocked shots. "It’s literally that simple. We’re starting to see what we have because guys are in the lineup. Soon we’re getting (Kendrick) Nunn as well, and not too long after that, AD returns.

    LeBron James is keeping the pressure on to have Washington Wizards announcer Glenn Consor fired over Monday night’s gaffe when he unknowingly made a shooting analogy involving Rockets player Kevin Porter Jr’s father, who once shot and killed a girl in 1993. James let his feelings known about Consor’s unfortunate color commentary after the announcer made to comment on Porter’s winning basket in the final moments of the Rockets-Wizards game on Monday. “You’ve got to give credit,” Consor said. “Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time.” The comment, though, struck a sour chord because Kevin Porter’s father served time for shooting and killing a 14-year-old girl in 1993. The elder Porter was later shot and killed himself in a 2004 bar fight. To make matters worse, Consor got the wrong Kevin Porter. The Wizards’ Kevin Porter Jr’s felon father was not an NBA player. There was a Kevin Porter who played for Washington, but he is not the current player’s father. James tweeted about Consor’s comment on Thursday, calling Consor “insensitive” and saying...
    LeBron James was quick to condemn NBA announcer Glenn Consor for his horrific on-air reference Wednesday night. And after hearing Consor’s defense, James refused to accept it. “You’ve got to give credit. Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time,” Consor said Wednesday night after the Houston Rockets guard hit a game winning shot against the Wizards. Porter Jr.’s father, Bryan Kevin Porter Sr. was charged with first-degree murder for shooting a 14-year-old girl in 1993 and served four years in prison. In 2004, Porter Sr. was then shot five times and killed in a bar fight. The remark led James and many others to decry Consor for his horrific reference. But after dealing with more than 12 hours of backlash, Consor explained he thought Porter Jr.’s father was 71-year-old Kevin Porter, who played professionally from 1972-1983 and had a stint with Washington’s NBA franchise. Oh he thought this was cool huh!!?? Nah we ain’t going for this! Sorry but this ain’t going to fly! How insensitive can you be to say something...
    LeBron James pushed further on his call for a Washington Wizards broadcaster to be fired over his "trigger" comment when describing Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr.’s game-winning shot on Wednesday. James called for Glenn Consor’s job on Twitter a day after the broadcaster made the remark. Consor apologized, but for the Los Angeles Lakers superstar it wasn’t enough, and he added there was no excuse for the remark given the amount of information announcers receive before tipoff.

    LeBron James has moved past simply ejecting fans from their courtside seats at NBA arenas. Now, the Lakers star forward is trying to get announcers fired. During the final moments of the Rockets-Wizards game on Monday night, Houston’s Kevin Porter Jr. hit a game-winning shot that sealed the deal for the Rockets. However, NBC Sports Washington analyst Glenn Consor’s description of the shot is what would end up making headlines. “You’ve got to give credit,” Consor said. “Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time.” The comment ended up proving quite unfortunate, given that Kevin Porter Jr.’s father actually did pull the trigger of a very real gun and killed a 14-year-old girl in 1993. Then, in 2004, Porter was shot and killed in a bar. LeBron James took to Twitter to voice his outrage over Consor’s words. Oh he thought this was cool huh!!?? Nah we ain’t going for this! Sorry but this ain’t going to fly! How insensitive can you be to say something like this. Beat it man! I pray for...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. There aren’t many players in the history of the NBA who have had a bigger voice than LeBron James. Not only does the Los Angeles Lakers star have a massive following, but he also speaks out on a number of issues. The latest controversy he’s now been involved in involves the Washington Wizards and Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. During a Wednesday matchup between the two teams, Porter hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to win the game. During a replay of the shot, Wizards broadcaster Glenn Consor made what may have seemed like harmless comments. “Kevin Porter Jr. – like his dad – pulled that trigger right at the right time,” Consor said. However, the comments from Consor stirred controversy as Porter’s dad, Kevin Porter Sr., was previously charged in 1993 with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a 14-year-old girl, per TMZ. Porter Sr. only served four years in prison but died after getting shot five times at a bar in 2004. With that knowledge in mind, many took...

James recently shared that he’s had his eye on Monk since last season when he fell out of the Hornets’ regular rotation and wanted to find a way to add him to the Lakers roster last season. “It’s funny, just a little quick backstory, me and (former assistant coach Jason) Kidd, we talked a lot last year. We wanted him last year,” James told reporters on Tuesday, January 4. “When Charlotte stopped playing him last year, or they would play him, and then sit him for five or six games, and then they would play him, and then you would see him have a game at Miami where he had like eight or nine threes in Miami, and then they would sit him and not play him.

    Getty LeBron James (middle), Lakers Slowly but surely, things are turning around for the Lakers, who pulled themselves  back up over .500 and into the Top 7 in the NBA‘s Western Conference with a tight win over Sacramento at home on Tuesday. Most impressive for the Lakers was the late-game play of star forward LeBron James, who turned around a slow start (2-for-6 shooting in the first quarter) with a second-half takeover, as he finished with 31 points. And, as some punctuation on that performance, James let his former teammate know about. With 52 seconds to play in the game, James drove hard to the rim and drew a foul on Kings center (and former teammate) Damian Jones, making the layup in the process and putting L.A. up by six points (he missed the free throw). But in his excitement celebrating the make, James found another former teammate from his days in Cleveland, center Tristan Thompson, who was on the Kings bench. James began talking some trash to Thompson, interpreted by some as the NSFW, “I’m a mother****ing...
    LeBron James spoke on how he wanted to snatch Malik Monk from Charlotte — and how it “doesn’t make sense” how well it all worked out.  LeBron James is an athlete, entrepreneur, and at this point, general manager. While unofficially listed in Lakers management, the NBA legend has been known to have his run of things, especially on teams that owe their recent championships to his endeavors. As talented as he is alone, James excels when it comes to bringing people together, which is why he’s built a superteam time and time again. Some of the trades work out, some don’t: James did get Anthony Davis to help him win a championship, but he wasn’t able to convince Damian Lillard to relocate to Los Angeles. However, LeBron revealed that he was manifesting the arrival of Malik Monk, and he still can’t believe how perfectly it all worked out.  “Me and J-Kidd [Jason Kidd], we wanted him last year,” James told media. “We were wondering if there was a way to snatch him away from their (Charlotte’s) roster. Through...
    19 years in the NBA and if LeBron James has lost any semblance of skill on the court, he certainly hasn’t lost any passion for the game or drive to remain great. With less than a minute left during the fourth quarter of the Lakers game against the Sacramento Kings, James put the ball on the floor and drove to the basket for a clutch bucket. James battled through multiple defenders before finishing with a left-handed layup while getting fouled, setting up the opportunity for a three-point play. After the play, James flexed and strutted past the Kings bench, while not so subtly screaming, “I’m a motherf*cking problem B*TCH!” And James wasn’t lying. Despite being 37-years-old, he still is very much a problem for opponents on the basketball court. Tuesday night was the eighth consecutive game for James where he scored 30-points or more as the NBA superstar carried the Lakers back to a record above .500. Yesterday, Aaron Rodgers recommended the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck. But it seems like James...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — LeBron James scored 14 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, Malik Monk added 11 of his 24 in the final seven minutes, and the Los Angeles Lakers held off the Sacramento Kings 122-114 on Tuesday night for their fourth win in five games. Talen Horton-Tucker scored 19 points for the Lakers, who rallied from a late seven-point deficit with one big basket after another from Monk and James.

    Getty Russell Westbrook (left), Avery Bradley (middle) and DeAndre Jordan of the Lakers At the end of the week, the Lakers have a decision to make that once looked pretty easy. Now it looks easy, for the opposite reason. For a while there, veteran guard Avery Bradley was having one of the worst seasons among any starter in the NBA. The one comfort from that was that Bradley has a contract that is not fully guaranteed until January 7—that would be this Friday—and the team had the option of waiving him and creating a roster spot. Bradley is slated to make $2.6 million this season as a veteran minimum signing, though because of NBA rules, only $1.7 million of that counts against L.A.’s salary cap. Now, though, Bradley has returned to his traditional form, playing great defense and opportunistic offense. With a decision on Bradley’s future with the team looming, coach Frank Vogel was asked about Bradley on Sunday after he scored 14 points and logged four steals in the win over Minnesota. “He’s done a great job...
    LeBron James and Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Phil Handy got into a heated exchange at halftime during the team’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.

    Getty Images Guard Rajon Rondo. The Los Angeles Lakers parted ways with Rajon Rondo this week, dealing the veteran guard to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But the veteran guard was not heartbroken about his second stint with LA ending preemptively. In fact, Rondo embraced the move, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Here’s what Woj had to say about the deal: Rondo is eager for the chance to play a bigger role with an ascending Cavaliers team in the absence of Ricky Rubio, sources said. He has been positive on the deal since it was presented to him as an option Thursday. Rubio had played an important role for the Cavaliers, averaging 13.1 points, 6.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game. It was an injury that hit the team hard. The Cavaliers might not rely on Rondo as much, but it will provide him with more opportunity than he had with the Lakers. The Lakers got back Denzel Valentine in the deal but are expected to waive him and his partially guaranteed deal, opening up a roster spot. That spot...

    One day after quietly celebrating his 37th birthday at home with his family, LeBron James put on an age-defying performance. James became the oldest player in NBA history to have a game with at least 40 points and 14 rebounds, scoring a season-high 43 on Friday night as the Los Angeles Lakers rolled to a 139-106 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. According to Sportradar, the oldest player to have a 40-14 game was Larry Bird, who was 35 when he had 49 points and 14 boards for the Boston Celtics in 1992 (which coincidentally also came against the Trail Blazers). "I don’t feel like I have been in the league 19 years. When I am daily reminded of it, I feel it sometimes," James said after his 67th 40-point game of his career and sixth in four seasons with the Lakers.

Mainline Ja Morant into your veins for 48 minutes and you will wake up the next morning daring to be something you weren’t, that is, if you even fell asleep. LeBron James was born on Dec. 30, 1984. Ja Morant wouldn’t see the light of day until 1999. The difference is the Showtime Lakers, Larry Legend, the Bad Boys, and two three-peats by a man comprised of air particles. Morant was born at the dawn of Duncan and just before Kobe and Shaq made good. They were all out of the league before Morant’s rookie debut....
