    Eighty-six-year-old liberal journalist Dan Rather seems to be getting more conspiratorial as he ages. The disgraced ex-CBS Evening News anchor on Monday speculated that the reason NBA star LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers is to... fight Donald Trump. It’s true that James is liberal, but one respondent on Twitter perhaps summed up how odd Rather’s conspiracy theory is: “I dunno. I think he went there to play basketball for the Lakers.” Rather wasn’t done offering deep thoughts on Monday. Later in the day, he linked the summer heat to global warming.

    The biggest name in basketball is headed to Hollywood. Through a short news release issued by his agents at Klutch Sports, LeBron James announced at 8:05 p.m. Sunday night that he would join the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency and sign a four-year, $154 million contract. In what has become an every-four-years ritual for the three-time N.B.A. champion, James has chosen to switch teams for the third time in his career, opting to leave his home-state Cleveland Cavaliers for a second time and join one of the league’s glamour franchises. James took to Instagram to say goodbye to Cavaliers...
  • LeBron James leaves Cleveland again, agrees to join Los Angeles Lakers

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- LeBron James agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, ending his second run as the face of his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. James, born in Akron and drafted No. 1 by the Cavs in 2003, is leaving the Cavs for the second time in eight seasons. But this time, it's two-years removed from bringing the organization its first title. James' agreement with the Lakers was announced through a simple press release sent by his agent, Rich Paul, which says James, a 14-time All-Star, three-time Finals MVP, and two-time Olympic...

    Whichever team wins the NBA championship, President Donald Trump says he won't be inviting them to the White House. "I didn't invite LeBron James, and I didn't invite Steph Curry. We're not going to invite either team," Mr. Trump told reporters on Friday. But Mr. Trump said he'd be happy to host the Washington Capitals, who just won the Stanley Cup for the first time in the club's 44-year history. He said: "If they want to be here, it's the greatest place on Earth. I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them."

    Fox News’ Laura Ingraham sparked nationwide controversy this week after telling Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James and Golden State Warriors role player Kevin Durant to avoid discussing politics and to “shut up and dribble.” Liberals decried the supposedly racist undertones of her comments, but last night the host of The Ingraham Angle refused to to apologize for her remarks saying, “the left and the media attack dogs can dish it out can’t they, but they sure can’t take it.”On Thursday night, Ingraham aired a video featuring the aforementioned NBA stars and an ESPN host discussing politics and the state of...

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James' video on Uninterrupted covered a multitude of topics: being All-Stars, being rich black men and living under President Donald Trump. James has been a vocal critic of Trump in the past, and this was no different. "(Trump) doesn't give a f--- about people," James said, and Durant agreed with him. That prompted Fox News host Laura Ingraham to respond to their comments about Trump. She said they should "shut up and dribble" instead of giving their thoughts on the president of The United States. In an interview with USA Today's Sam Amick, Durant responded to...

    Prodded on by the approving ESPN SportsCenter host Cari Champion, LeBron James delivered his latest installment of attacks on President Trump today. The professional basketball star who tweeted the unprofessional message "u bum" to the president last year, uses his Uninterrupted internet forum to blast Trump as someone who "really don't give a f--- about the people." Zachary Ripple, online sports editor for The New York Daily News, gave James more mileage by posting the video on his site along with a short story. This episode of Uninterrupted, titled "Rolling with the Champion: LeBron James and Kevin Durant," features Champion...

    LeBron James made a statement during an NBA game with his shoes — one black, one white, with the word "equality" in capital gold letters on the back of each. Then, after the game, James made a statement about President Donald Trump, saying: "This is a beautiful country and we're never going to let one person dictate how beautiful and how powerful we are." Earlier this year, James called Trump “a bum” on Twitter and also said at Cleveland’s preseason media day: “He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United...

    Lebron James was downright giddy over the demonstrations that swept across the NFL last Sunday, when scores of players “took a knee” to protest the racial injustice that allegedly pervades the nation which they very clearly hold in low regard. “I salute the NFL, the players, the coaches, the owners and the fans … it was unbelievable,” the $400 million hoopster said about a majority-black league whose players earn, on average, $1.9 million per sixteen-week season — more than the average full-time American worker earns in an entire lifetime. “There was solidarity,” he raved. “There was no divide, no...

    To cleanse the palate, I think he means “education” in terms of civic education, i.e. familiarity with policy and the candidates’ backgrounds, not grade-level achieved. It’d be weird if he didn’t since James himself famously skipped college after being drafted number one out of high school. Still, how often do you get to watch a mega-star athlete call the voters of his home state ignorant? This’ll be an interesting test to see if there’s anything Ohio’s favorite son can say or do to piss off his fans. Besides committing to play for another team at the end of a...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    LeBron James took to Twitter Saturday evening to express his sadness and anger over the events that took place earlier in the day in Charlottesville, Va., as well as criticize President Donald Trump for his poor leadership. "It's sad what's going on in Charlottesville," LeBron tweeted. "Is this the direction our country is heading? Make America Great Again huh?! He said that." One 32-year-old woman died and at least 19 more were injured after a car targeted and barreled into a crowd of protesters opposing a racist rally led by white supremacists in Charlottesville on Saturday.

    LeBron James needs a reality check! LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing off against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals, but LeBron made headlines for another reason. Someone spray-painted the gate of his Brentwood, California, mansion with the so-called “N-word.” The Cavs star player held a press conference, blew up this minor incident, castigated white America as “racist” and lamented how bad blacks have it in America. “No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough. … And we’ve...

    An L.A. home owned by LeBron James was the target of a hate crime -- someone spray painted the n-word on the front gate and detectives are now investigating, cops tell TMZ Sports. Here's what we know ... multiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning. We're told the word was scrawled on the outer gate. We're told investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator. Records show LeBron bought the house back in 2015. The graffiti has since been covered up. We're told LeBron was not at...
