Posts Tagged ‘LeBron James’

It’s not exactly what you would call news, but here you go:

From TMZ:

The day after the New York Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs, Alex Rodriguez partied at a Miami nightclub with someone who is no stranger to playoff failure … LeBron James.


The two kicked it at the grand opening of the Arkadia at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Saturday night to attend Drake’s 24th birthday party.

Spies inside the club tell us both A-Rod and LeBron partied until 1:00 AM — and were each seen drinking Grey Goose La Poire vodka.

Since they’re each worth roughly a bazillion dollars — who do you think pays for drinks?

I’m sure all of you guys are following this media circus surrounding Lebron James right now..it’s crazy…am I right? “The Decision” will be a primetime event on ESPN at 9PM ET.

From Ian O’Connor (ESPN NY):

The New York sports executive who has signed free agents to contracts totaling more than a billion dollars doesn’t believe the New York Knicks have any shot to land LeBron James.

Brian Cashman believes they have the only shot.

“LeBron James is going to be a Knick,” the New York Yankees’ general manager said Monday after hearing the news that Amare Stoudemire had agreed in principle to play his home games at Madison Square Garden.

“I’m convinced of it. New York is the place that will allow LeBron to be the player and person he wants to be, and it’s all coming together. Just listen, LeBron James will be a Knick.”

Cashman conceded he was going solely on gut instinct. But that gut instinct was right on the $423.5 million offseason score of CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira and A.J. Burnett that inspired the Yankees’ 27th World Series title.

On cue, James arrived at his Akron basketball camp Monday wearing a Yankees cap.

Cashman claims he’s “going solely on gut instinct.” Is Cashman dead wrong? What do you guys think? Where will Lebron end up?

The Boston Red Sox organization had Steven Tyler, Neil Diamond and that kid who delivers Herb Brooks’ “Miracle” speech in attendance. Pedro Martinez threw out the first pitch, Dr. Dre was draped in a Red Sox uniform, and Johnny Pesky showed up to the game. This brings me to the question…what will the Yankees do for their home opener? Just a few days ago, I got a pair of tickets to the game so I’m pretty pumped up about it.

  • The back of Neil Diamond’s sport jacket read: “Keep The Dodgers In Brooklyn”
  • Pedro Martinez gave Alex Rodriguez a hug before the game
  • Lebron James (a Yankees fan) was also in attendance

From the Wall Street Jorunal:

LeBron James will be the biggest star in Madison Square Garden on Friday night when his Cleveland Cavaliers take on the New York Knicks, but there’s an unexpected opening act: former Yankees star Bernie Williams performing the national anthem. Mr. Williams, who was nominated for a Latin Grammy on Thursday, will perform on his guitar on a stage he calls “as good as it gets.” The former outfielder’s “Go For It” single was No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz Songs charts in August.
