    LeBron James is the GOAT when it comes to telling small, meaningless lies.The NBA community has been mourning the death of rapper Takeoff, whose real name is Kirshnik Ball, since he was killed in Houston last week. Takeoff was 1/3rd of Migos, the popular rap trio from Atlanta that went to the top of the charts with their sophomore album “Culture” and were often seen in NBA circles. LeBron James was asked about Takeoff’s death on Sunday afternoon after the Los Angeles Lakers lost the Cleveland Cavaliers, 114-100, in LA. His answer went viral for all the wrong reasons. James...

    LeBron James, who is in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, thinks something fishy is going on. While it has not been confirmed that James tested positive for COVID-19, reported that the Lakers star is expected to miss several games. James has thus far declined to elaborate on what exactly he thinks is fishy, but he used just about every fish emoji available to man in a Wednesday tweet to illustrate his point. The Lakers played without James on Tuesday night and rallied to beat the Kings, 117-92. “He said he’s good,” Anthony Davis said after the game in...

    LeBron James has expressed regret over a tweet he posted last month about the police-involved shooting death of Ohio teen Ma’Khia Bryant. 'I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma'Khia Bryant and I owe it to her and this movement to change it,' the Los Angeles Lakers forward wrote on Twitter on Monday. James included a link to an article by Vox race reporter Fabiola Cineas which criticized Columbus Police Officer Nicholas Reardon's decision to shoot 16-year-old Bryant at the moment it appeared she was about to stab another woman.

    Liberal activist LeBron James is one of just two players on the Los Angeles Lakers who hasn't received a COVID-19 vaccination, his teammate Dennis Schröder (the other unvaccinated player) revealed on Monday. "Nearly the whole team is vaccinated," Schröder told a media outlet from his native Germany. "Only LeBron and I are not, I think." James's refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine reflects a dangerous anti-science ideology that experts have warned could put lives at risk. Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the most respected scientific experts in the country, has expressed "extreme confidence" in the FDA-approved vaccines and urged every...

    Just the News ^ | September 26, 2020 - 5:38pm | By Daniel Payne
    This week's Thursday night episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News pulled in more viewers than the highly anticipated Game 4 NBA match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets. That game drew 4.6 million viewers, while Carlson's show brought in 140,000 more than that. The comparatively low numbers continue a trend of plummeting viewership in the NBA, the numbers of which are down roughly 40% since the 2018 season and 27% from last year. Some commentators have blamed that drop on the League's increasing politicization, particularly beginning in mid-2020 as more and more players began coming...

    The last two weeks have not been kind to NBA TV ratings. Sunday’s Game 2 Western Conference Finals battle between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets averaged 3.17 million viewers. That number marks the lowest total for a Conference Finals outing since 2003, when the then-New Jersey Nets and Detroit Pistons averaged 2.72 million for Game 4 of their series. Last year, a similarly-positioned game between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers averaged 7.88 million viewers.

    LeBron James says his thoughts on social justice can’t be contained on the back of a basketball jersey. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar won’t wear one of the NBA-approved social justice messages on the back of his jersey when the NBA resumes competition later this month in the Orlando bubble. “It was no disrespect to the list that was handed down to all the players,” James said Saturday in a confernece call from Florida. “I commend anyone that decides to put something on the back of their jersey. It’s just something that didn’t seriously resonate with my mission, with my...

    Social media came down on Gary Oldman's win as well. Kobe Bryant took home an Oscar for an animated short film yesterday evening, for his short Dear Basketball, a choice some thought inappropriate given the “Time’s Up” and #MeToo themes of the 90th Academy Awards.Bryant was arrested and charged with sexual assault in 2003 when a 19-year-old woman accused him of rape. The basketball star claimed the encounter was consensual, however, and the case fizzled out when the woman said she did not want to testify in court.Bryant apologized to the woman, and a little over a year after the...

    Retired NBA star Kobe Bryant during an interview with outspoken ESPN anchor Jemele Hill weighed in on the Colin Kaepernick protest debate by saying that if he were still playing today he would have joined in on it despite the potential backlash. Bryant said that Kaepernick’s message was a “very simple one” and that people are as entitled to protest peacefully as they are to be upset about those protests. “Yeah, I would have participated in it, for sure. I’m sure I would have gotten some flak for it. That’s fine,” he told Hill. “I think that Colin’s message was...

    This week, soon-to-be-retired Laker legend Kobe Bryant admonished second-year guard Jordan Clarkson for “going to the hole like a light-skinned dude”. Clarkson told the LA Daily News that in the moment prior to posterizing Suns big man Alex Len, he thought, “I have to go to the hole like a dark-skinned dude. As soon as the lane opened up, that’s all I could remember.” It’s interesting that Bryant would toss such a racially charged statement at a young player considering his childhood was spent in Europe and he never quite fit in with his peers when he returned to the...

    Obama has his priorities right I guess. As the terrorist attack in San Bernardino was unfolding yesterday, many people wondered where was Obama. No we know. Obama was busy meeting with Kobe Bryant as the terrorist attack as going on and 14 people were murdered in cold blood all in the name is Islamic terrorism. The Lakers were in Washington D.C. last night for the only time this year. So Obama figured, who cares about the American people getting killed by a crazed Islamic radical and his wife. I’ll go talk some basketball with Kobe Bryant.
