James is in his 16th season in the National Basketball Association and still somehow the best player in the league.

"The scouts also have noticed that when James is running the point, he rarely looks toward the bench to receive playcalls from coach Luke Walton".

"I'm always fresh", James said at the start of the season, per ESPN. "Coaching staff thought it was better for me to take a rest, so that's what I did". It's no surprise with how they're doing without me. "I've got to make sure I'm good".

In addition to heaping praise on James, Walton noted the contribution of the entire team after a game in which Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope all scored in double figures. James did the same thing with the Cavs, especially with head coach Tyronn Lue, and it's part of what comes along with having arguably the greatest player on the planet on the roster.

But that didn't dissuade voters in deeply Republican Mississippi, the only state that still has Confederate insignia on its flag. The video sparked a furor in the deep South state that has a history of racism and violence against blacks, including lynchings.

James quickly responded with a personal 5-0 run out of a timeout and when the 33-year-old returned for the final stretch, he was able to successfully close out the game.

It didn't take LeBron James long to take over and essentially run the show for the Lakers, apparently.

Lakers executive Magic Johnson called the report "wrong".

"Basically minutes, trying to make sure we don't overplay him and then also usage of the ball in his hands", Johnson said.

"I figured I wouldn't have the ball in my hands as much coming into the season with the multiple ballhandlers we have on this team", James said. "We want to get up and down".

To be perfectly clear: Lonzo Ball said he will play Thursday when the Lakers host Indiana.

You knew this was going to happen eventually.
