Lakers vs. Cavaliers Final Score: LeBron James sends Lakers into All-Star break with 120-111 loss

One of the final Kobe and LeBron duels was a dud in Cleveland. The Cleveland Cavaliers made quick work of the Los Angeles Lakers, leaving the purple and gold with a 120-111 loss to chew on as they head into the long All-Star break. The Cavaliers galloped up and down the court on the Lakers, pushing the pace as they attacked the paint and took advantage of L.A.'s lacking interior defense, especially in transition. LeBron James ended the night with 29 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds, leaking out in transition to catch outlets from his rebound-corralling teammates all night. Kyrie...

The Lakers are so bad there's a Ben Simmons tanking anthem

"Talkin' 'bout that Laaaakeshow Life...." The Los Angeles Lakers lost their 43rd game of the season Wednesday night, and the team appears well on track to finish with one of the worst records in the NBA. While that may not be very much fun in the moment, the upside is that the Lakers may get to keep their first round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, which is conveyed to the Philadelphia 76ers if it falls outside of the top three selections. If the season ended today, the Lakers would have a 19.9% chance at the first overall pick in the draft, in which the consensus top pick is widely considered...

King James fired a laser pass into D'Angelo Russell's crown jewels

That one smarts,,, LeBron James spent the lead up to Kobe Bryant's final game in Cleveland talking about the effect the retiring Lakers star had on his game, but Kobe wasn't the only athlete that James took inspiration from. D'Angelo Russell found out the hard way that LeBron is a big fan of Paul Crewe, Adam Sandler's character in "the Longest Yard," when the King showed the dangers of no-look passing: Russell is okay and went back in a few minutes later, but hopefully Byron Scott doesn't tell him to "man-up" anymore after this, because that would just be adding insult to his literal...

ESPN poll puts LeBron James as third best NBA player of all time

I'm sure this won't be controversial at all I don't get upset about All-Star games, arbitrary awards, rankings, any of it. Everyone has their own standards and a lot of it is ridiculous but at the end of the day it's just not worth it. If you don't think a player I barely know or don't know is as good as I do, that's okay. Maybe I'll silently judge you. I probably won't. It just isn't consequential. I think Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all time. I think Magic Johnson is the second best. If pressed, I'd put LeBron James third. In a ranking out by ESPN, James is ranked just where...
