A paradox, and an underrated obstacle for the Lakers this offseason. In a vacuum as players, LeBron and AD remain very complementary of each other. But from a standpoint of building/rebuilding the roster, they’re not nearly as ideal/flexible to build around as in ’19-20. (1x) AK – 9:38 PM

Today was the first Team USA practice where LeBron James and Steph Curry played together. Steve Kerr said they liked it and their games complement each other. Expect to see that more of that in Paris. pic.twitter.com/NwWHO2blsl5:37 PM

Cooper Flagg has had some moments in this scrimmage. Had a drive and rim out over LeBron James, then hit a corner 3 and just had a nice putback in traffic to put the Select Team ahead with just under two minutes left in the scrimmage. – 5:14 PM

Great piece @Neil_Paine . If LeBron comes through in 2011 both the objective and subjective conversation about him is so different and he’s very close to MJ neilpaine.substack.com/p/the-2011-fin…4:35 PM

Steph, to @YahooSports on LeBron: “in the Finals, that brings out the healthy animosity… And you’re going to have some bad blood. you can be competitive, you can have that killer instinct, but still have the utmost respect”

Anthony Edwards said LeBron, Durant and Curry could win any game at the Olympics 3-on-5. So what’s all this ‘No. 1 option’ stuff for Ant on Team USA? He said it, but not even he really thinks it, ⁦@TheAthleticNBA⁩ nytimes.com/athletic/56230…8:59 AM

New story: LeBron James sat down with ESPN in Las Vegas and addressed the Lakers’ offseason and the backlash Bronny has already received. “I don’t know if people really understand Bronny,” LeBron said. “He doesn’t give a f—. … He really does not care.” es.pn/4eQRIoR9:12 PM

Jose Alvarado scored 23 against Lithuania to lead Puerto Rico back to the Olympics for the 1st time since 2004. That year, Carlos Arroyo led Puerto Rico to a W against Team USA in the Athens Olympics opener, where LeBron James made his national team debut. It was 20 years ago. pic.twitter.com/kOJIAy25wN7:49 PM

LeBron James says he took less money to get the Lakers under the second apron because, when you’re in a relationship, there are things you have to do sometimes, and he wanted to make sure they had more flexibility to alter the roster. – 7:06 PM

LeBron James said once he got clearance from his wife to give up his summer to play for Team USA, he was all in on the experience. – 7:02 PM

More on this storyline

Among Biles’ biggest fans — literally — going into the Paris Games is a group of fellow Olympians, some of them more than 2 feet taller than she is, most of whom have never been to any sort of gymnastics meet in their lives. But make no mistake, the U.S. men’s basketball team loves her. “She’s the best,” three-time Olympic medalist LeBron James said. “It’s that simple. She’s the best.” -via ESPN / July 8, 2024
LeBron James on winning a second ring with the Lakers: ‘Of course, of course. Q. What gives you that confidence? James: Because we’ve done it before. We still have two guys who commit every single day in myself and AD, we commit to excellence and commit to winning. We’re not that far off, you know? We’re one year removed from the Western Conference Finals, this past year didn’t go as well as we would like, but we’re not that far off. There’s so many teams in the league you know so many great teams in the league, in the Western and Eastern Conference, but we don’t see that we are that far off anyways -via YouTube / July 8, 2024
