Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

James was in action for Cleveland Cavaliers this weekend in their clash with Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers led for virtually the entire game and pulled away with a 22-3 run during the third quarter.

They have won seven of their last 10 games but despite their improvement, they're still not in contention for a playoff spot in the fiercely competitive Western Conference this year. Buddy Hield scored 18 points, while former Nuggets player Kosta Koufos chipped in 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings. With the addition of Isaiah Thomas and Lonzo Ball healthy, the Lakers have been one of the most improved teams since the playoff break. As the Cavaliers called timeout while down 115-94, James palmed the ball and motioned as if he wanted to throw it in frustration before cocking back.

James acknowledged the injuries and how they're hampering the team's play, but didn't express confidence when asked if the Cavaliers were heading in the right direction.

Nance had 16 points and eight rebounds, and Clarkson added four points in their first game against the Lakers since they were traded for Thomas and Channing Frye on February 8.

But seven Raptors finished in double figures in Toronto's 15th win in 16 games.

LeBron James, whose looming free agency is the beacon of all the intrigue, seemed outmatched by the Lakers given the unhealthy status of his current team.

Despite Walton's ribbing, the former Lakers were welcomed warmly in their return on Sunday - both by their former teammates and by fans, who cheered both players.

L.A.is 7-2 in its last nine games, so whatever Thomas is doing, it appears to be working.

"It's tough. I know we've got a lot of young guys playing and different lineups, but we've still got to play better". I only played 15 games for them, so it's really not about showing them what I can do. "The world knows what I can do". We have a saying: Your last team, they didn't want you.

LeBron James is nearly certain to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers unless his hometown franchise can win the National Basketball Association championship in June.

According to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk, the Lakers were auditioning for James' services during Sunday's game. Randle has been on a tear since being inserted into the starting lineup at the beginning of the season, but this was the best performance of his career.

"He's a straight dog", Randle told ESPN about Thomas after the game. "I'm not surprised, but it feels good I guess". "It was good to see them".

Celebrities such as Mayweather, Adam Levine, Jason Sudeikis and Marlon Wayans joined Lakers fixture Jack Nicholson to get their glimpse of James' only trip to Los Angeles to play the Lakers this season.

However, Apple hasn't been shy about teasing new hardware at the event too, even with its software focus. As is typical for Apple, rumors have been swirling about its upcoming operating system updates .

The Lakers' entire season has been created to prove their young core of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and probably Randle could fit splendidly around James, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins - or failing that, the top free agents in the class of 2019.
