National Basketball Association commissioner expects All-Star draft to be televised…

LeBron James Leaving Cavaliers Would Be a Surprise, Says East Executive

"Sometimes you have to improvise when it breaks down", James said.

LeBron and Westbrook, however, just would not give up.

The change was proposed by Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul, the president of the players' union. CP3, 2017-18 MVP front-runner James Harden and James would form a trio as formidable as any in the National Basketball Association. Eventually, Curry gave it up to teammate DeMar DeRozan. Plus, there's no state income tax in Texas, which means LeBron's max salary would be worth a little more there.

But in recent years, the exhibition had lost its soul.

However, regardless of his "all-star comedic abilities", the team introductions - complete with bad jokes about Goran Dragic's "dragon breath" and Hart's own inability to pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo's family name, were not well-received. "It's built for cameras and bright lights, and it's a great place for it". James even calls West "The Godfather".

Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world, has also become James' second home. LA's "other" squad has made the playoffs each of the past seven seasons (though that streak is in jeopardy this season), and just locked up Lou Williams to a reasonable contract extension. "Then, of course, he mentioned when they came back ..." "The fact is that these players are not just basketball players, they're multi-dimensional, they care about their communities, and they care about what's happening in our country". Perhaps an incentive of some kind for the winning team or a change in the format may be seen.

In Milwaukee, the Bucks may also position themselves to land James.




After 17 minutes of flat out weirdness, we finally made it to player introductions.

After the theme of the weekend was the Lakers' pursuit of Paul George, the fans on hand didn't exactly roll out the red carpet for the player many think could collude with James and land in L.A. next summer.

And there's always the ultimate Laker wish: signing Cavs star LeBron James. The Lakers will be able to offer James a max deal and should be able to create enough cap space to bring on another max superstar as well.

While the two were on the bench, Embiid picked Curry's brain about being a pro. Plus, by staying in the East, James would avoid the Warriors until the Finals. With players more accessible, relatable and fun than ever, it continues to defy logic that the league's signature event should be so sterile and corporate.

James' free agency is going to be the biggest of the offseason. If there was a highlight for the local fan base this weekend, it comes mostly from hopes and dreams, from free-agent fantasies. But that seemed to ignore the fact that James is a multi-millionaire, philanthropist and businessman outside of his considerable on-court exploits.

Around the end of January, the Warriors started feeling it.
