Lakers Are “Very Interested” In Signing Carmelo Anthony: Report

big ralph | July 31, 2021

After rounding out their big three with the acquisition of Russell Westbrook, the Lakers are reportedly considering adding Carmelo Anthony to continue to fill out their roster. ESPN's Jordan Schultz now reports that a source says the team is “very interested” in signing the NBA veteran.
“Lakers are 'very interested' in the prospect of signing Carmelo Anthony, per a league source,” Schultz tweeted, Saturday night. “Melo has been linked to the Lakers as a possibility, given his friendship w/LeBron dating back to high school. Anthony drilled a career-best 40.9 percent from 3 last season w/Portland.”

Christian Petersen / Getty ImagesAdding Anthony is an obvious move for the Lakers, as the former Knick has been a personal friend of LeBron James dating back to high school. While being past his prime, Anthony still averaged 13.4 points a game last season for the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Lakers have also been linked to veterans Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan. The team would be r..

Florida Breaks Single-Day COVID-19 Case Record As Delta Variant Surges

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Flordia passed their most single-day COVID-19 infections record, Friday after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that there were more than 21,000 new infections. The previous high for the pandemic was 19,334 confirmed cases on Jan. 7, 2021.
The new numbers come in as the highly contagious Delta variant is causing another spike in cases across America.
Despite the rising case numbers, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has issued an executive order to stop schools from implementing mask mandates for the upcoming fall season.

Joe Raedle / Getty Images“The federal government has no right to tell parents that in order for their kids to attend school in person, they must be forced to wear a mask all day, every day,” the Republican governor said in a press release. “Many Florida schoolchildren have suffered under forced masking policies, and it is prudent to protect the ability of parents to make decisions regarding the wearing of masks by their children.”

LeBron James Shoves Fan During Usher Concert: Twitter Reacts

big ralph | July 31, 2021

LeBron James was spotted shoving a fan away who was attempting to get a picture with the Lakers star during an Usher concert, recently, sparking a massive debate on NBA Twitter regarding who was in the right.
“Lebron spotted being a normal human being and stiff arming a person running at him… just cuz he’s a celebrity doesn’t mean you can run up on him,” one fan wrote, defending the four-time NBA Champion. “Check his demographics before you do that.”

Christian Petersen / Getty ImagesAnother fan described the shove as being “literally assault.”
In response to a user who claimed the fan was “Invading his space,” a fan wrote, “What the hell are you talking about? I've been to a million live events and there is no such thing. I'm a Sixers season ticket holder and there is no space for me and my family when we're walking around.”
LeBron is no stranger to controversy. Earlier in the day, James reflected on being boo'd by Warriors fans at Oracle Arena during his rookie ye..

Derrick Rose & Bulls Mutually Interested In A Reunion: Report

big ralph | July 31, 2021

Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls are reportedly both interested in a reunion this offseason, according to a new report from Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report. Fischer says sources indicate that the Bulls could also pursue Lonzo Ball or Dennis Schroder if a deal with Rose falls through.
“There are strong indications from league sources that mutual interest exists between Derrick Rose and his storied hometown franchise, where he claimed league MVP honors in 2010-11,” Fischer says. “It’s unclear how Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau can stand in the way of the Bulls’ potential advances, and Chicago will need to shed contracts to bring on two ball-handlers at such expected salaries.”

Mike Ehrmann / Getty ImagesRose was drafted with the number one overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft and was named the youngest MVP in league history in 2010-11 at just 22 years old. After suffering numerous injuries, Rose left Chicago in 2016 after being traded to the Knicks. He then played for the Cavs, Timberw..
