So any word on if in fact Lebron is actually going to start at PG?

Could potentially go with a linuep like this

Howard/McGee
Davis
Kuzma/Green
KCP/Bradley
James

Just saying .......

He is a point forward. Traditional labels do not apply. He may control the ball and QB the offense but there is another end of the court that has to be considered.

There needs to be a couple of perimeter defenders on the court. James is not guarding either the PG or SG position. He may have tough times against athletic SF types and energetic PFs. Protecting James is going to be tough enough on defense you don’t make it worse by asking him to matchup with quicker guards.

Even the roster you propose would have Bradley, KCP, and Green at the guard positions and James on SFs.

Saying you have no starter there who can guard opposing PGs.

Defensively, though, how's that gonna work? At his age, Bron has no business trying to guard most 1s or 2s.

That’s cool. I can’t imagine he come back with the Lakers but according to the article in seems to indicate he wants to be involved especially with Lebron. He should be able help challenge Lebron and perhaps even help some other Lakers. It also says he lives in la

What is the point of starting KCP (of all people) over Green?

It says there Wade lives in LA too..I can't imagine Wade returning, but it is good to know he wants to help Lebron with training and maybe some other Lakers.

Wade has always been fond of the Lakers Organization and almost came here a couple of years ago.

In the article, Wade said

"I'm done, but my trainer is going to keep me in shape just in case something happens," Wade said while smiling, according to the Times. "I'm going to stay in shape because you never know. Never say never."

My best guess that could mean if the Lakers say had some key injuries and a guard was needed, he might come. I haven't kept up with him the last few years, but does he have anything left in the tank should he come back?

Most Interesting Lakers No. 2:
LeBron James has legitimate doubters; can he shut them up?

For the first time since LeBron James entered the NBA, legitimate doubt is circling.
How he answers could define his Lakers legacy.

The only concern I have about Lebron is health. If healthy he will play fine.

Was just thinking about the starting lineup with Lebron in it. It's a bit of a cluster....his best position is PF - but we have maybe THE BEST PF in the league who is the new offensive focal point in AD. For me that leaves...

PG - Bradley
SG - Green
SF - Bron
PF - AD
C - D39/Jav

Starting....Not sure who our starting C will be yet.

Kuz is most likely odd man out in the starting lineup. But will be first off the bench to relieve Bron.

As long as AD is playing - Lebron is at the 3. I think they start together and finish together. Lebron is prob first to rest at the e/o the first qtr. Then comes in sometime in the 2nd to give AD his first breather. That way Bron can spend time at the 4.

We can only hope that other teams go small vs. us to end the game so AD can play some 5 w/ Lebron at the 4. Then spread the floor with Kuz - Green - & Cook.

It'll be interesting to see if coach sits Bron/AD at the same time for any stint.

Hopefully we get a def. wing...otherwise Green/KCP will have to guard the 3 spot.

I honestly don’t see us with enough depth at the 3 to have James NOT start there.

LeBron James’ “Taco Tuesday” trademark request rejected

LeBron James loves Taco Tuesday — and it’s become a social media thing.

So much so, that LeBron, through one of his companies, tried to trademark the phrase with the plan to start a “Taco Tuesday” podcast.

However, that idea was shot down by the trademark office because “Taco Tuesday” is a “commonplace message,” meaning so many people use it no one person can trademark it.


Josh Gerben
@JoshGerben
The USPTO has refused the TACO TUESDAY trademark application filed by Lebron James' company LBJ Trademarks, LLC.

The refusal, issued at 6:26 PM today, finds that TACO TUESDAY is a "commonplace message" and therefore fails to function as a trademark.#TacoTuesday

I’m no trademark attorney — although I am good at eating tacos — however, this seems a good call to me. Nearly every Mexican restaurant, and some not-so-Mexican restaurants, use Taco Tuesday in their advertising. It’s about as common a part of the vernacular as it gets. It’s already too out there to trademark.

LeBron wasn’t the only Ohio institution to lose out on a trademark application Wednesday:

A spokesman for James told ESPN's Dave McMenamin that the application was filed "to ensure LeBron cannot be sued for any use of 'Taco Tuesday.'"

"Finding 'Taco Tuesday' as commonplace achieves precisely what the intended outcome was, which was getting the U.S. government to recognize that someone cannot be sued for its use," the spokesman said.

Glad it was denied... and if the only intent was to make it a "commonplace phrase"... since I previously made negative comments about the trademark application, I'll take those comments back and say well done.

I did see some decline even before the groin injury, but he was still very effective. Hopefully, he can stay healthy this time.
