Some of the latest news about the Lakers is related to their superstars from past and present. Popular TV personality LeBron James advised working on the free throw, while rapper Kendrick Lamar praised the five-time NBA champion with Purple & Gold.
On that note, here’s a look at some of the most interesting recently reported stories featuring the Los Angeles Lakers.
Skip Bayless criticizes LeBron James, advising him to work on a free throw rather than focus on commercials
The biggest critic of LeBron James, Skip Bayless, launched another attack on “The King.” James got off the season early after the Los Angeles Lakers failed to make the playoffs, let alone the championship. The four-time NBA champion is known to invest heavily in his off-court business ventures, and has been in the headlines because of that lately.
Bayless used that as an opportunity to do a thorough research into James about his latest commercial with Ruffles. Here’s what a Fox Sports analyst said chirp:
Hey, LeGone: My answer to your question, hot flamin cream or cheddar and sour cream? Nothing. Ditch the chips, the wine, the tequila. You should get in better shape for next year, the 20th. The gas has continued to run out at closing time. And please Get off the couch and work on your free throws!”
LeBron James is one of the best all-round players the NBA has seen. However, the four-time champion has always struggled from the free-throw line throughout his career. James never managed to shoot more than 80% of the charity tape, which Bayliss often referred to on his talk shows.
Richard Jefferson Fishing for Trade Barter Suggestions for Steve Curry – Russell Westbrook
The Los Angeles Lakers have always been a notable name that circles the NBA rumors. They are always linked with potential super players regardless of whether they have the resources or flexibility to acquire the big names in the market.
The ‘bait tweet’ suggested that the Lakers and Warriors engage in a trade-off with Russell Westbrook and Steve Curry, which I read (via Christian Rivas):
“Paul’s rise has made Curry’s contract a huge burden to the Warriors. The smartest thing for them in the long run is to trade Curry to the Lakers for Ross’ expired contract.”
Former NBA champion Richard Jefferson didn’t have any of it and retweeted the post asking the Los Angeles Lakers if anyone from their organization had opened an account to ridicule the aforementioned trade proposal.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar honors Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant in his latest music video
Rap sensation Kendrick Lamar is ready to release some new music for the first time since 2018. He kicked off the proceedings for his latest album, Mr. Lamar. Morale & the Big Steppers release “The Hear Part 5.” The powerful song will be part of his upcoming album.
The “Heart Part 5” video has impressed fans with the deepfake technique Lamar uses in it. He’s used it to transform into the faces of some famous black characters like Will Smith, the late Nipsey Hussle, and the late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.
