LeBron James May Star in New Comedy Project for Paramount Players

The Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers both know what it's like to live life after The King has left town, and in a gesture of grace, having dealt with similar issues after a presidential term from LeBron James, who played for both franchises for four years before departing.

'I really wanted LeBron to do it, of course, so I am reading articles on him and seeing what I could put into the script that would make him more interested in playing it; down to describing the Tom Ford suits he was going to wear, ' she said.

Q:How do you see the LeBron move?

"I think to try to play the Warriors at their own game is a trap", Pelinka said.


The Lakers icon who is now an executive board member with the Los Angeles Clippers spoke with Sports Illustrated about James' arrival in L.A. and appears less than impressed with his former team's offseason work.

Although James has been busy cementing himself as one of the best basketball players of all time, after just competing in his eighth straight NBA Final, the multi-hyphenate has also been engaged in the film and TV worlds. He also described Stephenson as providing "an extreme toughness and an edge", comparing his skills to Dennis Rodman's contributions to Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls, or Metta World Peace's work with Kobe Bryant's late-career Lakers. "But one of the ways to attack what they have is with defensive toughness".

Cleveland will have to press the reset button and start again after losing their biggest free agent for nothing this offseason, something they've had eight years of former experience to prepare for once again.

Pelinka said the Lakers will have "an open training camp" in September, with only James guaranteed to be a starter.
