The Day LeBron became King of L.A.

LOS ANGELES-The most glorified basketball exhibition also known as the NBA All Star Game needed a boost to sell it as an actual competitive event and thus they changed the format and allowed for its two most popular stars to select the teams for this 67th mid season summit. The fans got it half right when they voted LeBron James and Stephen Curry as team captains. LeBron showed up and showed out while Curry sat on the bench and ate popcorn before getting smothered on the last possession, forcing a panicked pass to the Raptors DeMar DeRozan for an unsuccessful Hail Mary fling at the buzzer in a 148-145 thriller at Staples Center. It was much better than a year ago when the East and West teams

Did Magic Johnson help Cavs keep LeBron?

Amid growing speculation that Akron native and NBA mega star LeBron James would be leaving the hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, Lakers President of Basketball Operations and NBA icon Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson swung a deal with Cleveland that while clearing essential cap space to sign to Max free agents this summer, also may have gave The King a reason to stay at home. Johnson sent arguably the Lakers most productive player Jordan Clarkson and their most intriguing player Larry Nance Jr. to the Cavs for Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye along with a late first round draft pick. Both Thomas and Frye are playing on expiring contracts while Clarkson and Nance Jr. are young players under contract through

Cavaliers Trading Isaiah Thomas to Lakers

CLEVELAND (AP) — After a quick stop, Isaiah Thomas is moving again. The point guard's strange stay with the Cavaliers is over. Thomas, who was never a good fit in Cleveland while recovering from a hip injury, was traded hours before the NBA's deadline to the Los Angeles Lakers, a person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday.
