I’d probably be cautious with LeBron and sit him on both ends of this back-to-back. Not only does he get the rest, but you get two games of Melo playing big minutes at the 4, which is a nice chance to just spam the Russ-AD pick-and-roll with proper spacing and see how it looks. – 5:31 PM

To the owner of @Nike, Phil Knight
How about I book plane tickets for us
and let’s fly to China together.
We can try to visit these SLAVE labor
camps and you can see it with your
own eyes.
@LeBron James
@Jordan
you guys are welcome to come too.

Carmelo Anthony is already proving he’s worth his $2.6 million salary and is exactly what LeBron James and the #Lakers need to vie for an NBA title.
