Entries in Lebron James (46)
Kids say the darndest things, right? Well, one young Cavs fan recently got down to business and asked what most of Cleveland has been wondering when he asked All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, "Are you going to leave Cleveland like LeBron James did?"
The 21-year-old Irving, who won the 2011-2012 NBA Rookie of the Year award, smiled and said, "That's a great Question. No, I won't leave."
But should Cavs fans be sceptical? Should they be worried that another superstar will scorn them again? The bright lights and big-city life of New York and Madison Square Garden could intrigue the West Orange, N.J. native to bold from Cleveland. However, with with two years remaining on Irving's current rookie contract, he'll be eligible for an extension next summer, where the Cavs can offer him a five-year max deal that would locked him up through 2020.
Irving does't appear like Irving is heading out of town anytime soon, but only time will tell if he keeps his word.

LeBron James' mom Gloria is reportedly dating some small-time Miami rapper named Lambo. Apparently they have been a couple since at least February. He's 31-years-old, which makes him just three years older than LeBron. Lambo only has one song on YouTube, which sucks (shocker). Not surprisingly, the guy seems like the thirsty hanger-on type, but I guess he's got to find his meal ticket one way or another.
I wonder if Delonte West is calling up Ray J to make a "I Hit It First" remix?

Jury duty time. Time to serve my civic duty http://t.co/7OgkVM74Er— LeBron James (@KingJames) August 8, 2013
LeBron James reported ahead of schedule for jury duty Thursday morning at the Summit County Courthouse, but he and other members of the pool were sent home after two potential criminal trials did not take place.
One defendant who was scheduled for trial, in Common Pleas Judge Tom Teodosio’s court, did not appear and had a bench warrant issued for his arrest.
The other defendant, in Judge Tom Parker’s court, pleaded guilty to a drug offense during pretrial proceedings.
Citizen James, meanwhile, sat “quietly and appreciatively,” Sheriff’s Lt. Kandy Fatheree said, in the ground-floor office of a court official who supervises the jury pool in a larger seating area nearby.
James was at the courthouse by about 8:20 a.m., 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled reporting time for potential jurors, she said.
Fatheree, head of courthouse security, said James arrived with a friend and a Bath Township police officer who provides security for the NBA superstar when he is in town. No other special services were provided, except to grant James’ request to sit in the jury foreman’s office so he would not attract undue attention, Fatheree said.
While waiting to be called for service, James read a book in the office, she said.
The jury foreman declined to comment.
James left the courthouse about 9:30 a.m., Fatheree said, after he and the other members of the jury pool, about 50 in all, were sent home.
Before they left, Teodosio thanked James and the others for their service “like I do in all cases,” the judge said. “It’s an important duty they perform for the community and the justice system.”
LeBron tweeted out "Jury duty time. Time to serve my civic duty" and posted the picture below on Instagram of himself with a book in hand ready to leave for jury duty. It would of been nice if the King would of posted a pic of those Nike kicks that he had on as well.
New photos of a pair of Nike LeBron X Lows that pay homage to LeBron winning his second NBA championship have emerged recently. Only problem is, LeBron is still just a one-time champ and the Spurs are just 48 minutes of good basketball away from winning this year's championship.
Looks like the old "counting your chickens before the hatch" saying has bit Nike in the rear with these pics, which obviously weren't supposed to be released just yet. The kicks feature "2-time champion" and "11-12 12-13" printed on the insoles of the sneakers. They follow up these "What the MVP" sneakers, which LeBron wore to celebrate being named this season's Most Valuable Player.
Another crazy fact about this year's Finals is that the Spurs have been killing the Heat while Danny Green and Manu Ginobili have both been wearing LeBron's sneakers. That right, Green, who was LeBron's teammate in Cleveland, has been wearing the the Nike Zoom Soldier VI. Ginobili has been wearing the LeBron Xs.
