First Lebron James lost 10 pounds, and it looks like Carmelo has been doing the same! Carmelo posted the above picture a few days ago on his instagram page. Maybe he will be faster this season or it could just be new contract, new body.
Well it looks like Lebron James may see some familiar faces in Cleveland! Already joining Bron Bron from Miami is former and current teammate Mike Miller. Mike Miller was one of Miami’s best shooters shooters so he should be a good addition. Now there are rumors circulating that Ray Allen might go to the Cleveland Cavaliers this upcoming season. But according to his agent ray is still undecided what he wants to do as far as playing goes let alone joining another team. So i guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens!
So according to Professor LeRoy Brooks of the Boler School of Business at John Carroll University in Cleveland, he did some calculations and his findings are that the city’s economy will take a $500 million boost when Lebron comes home! He says that “More fans will flock to Quicken Loans Arena to see James play, more staff will be needed at the arena to handle those larger crowds, more money will be spent during games at local bars and restaurants, and all of that will get pumped back into the region…call it the LeBron Effect.” Wow I wish philly could get a boost like that!
Kobe was at the World Cup festivities this past weekend and was asked about Lebron James’s Championship Expectations. Surprisingly, there was no shade thrown by Kobe! Peep it below!
Jay-Z might want to “Watch The Throne”, Beyonce was looking at another King! Lol just jokes, but watch it for yourself. Bey got caught straight up!
1. Lebron James Enter The Slam Dunk Contest
Lebron James entered the NBA in 2003 with a lot of expectations on his shoulders. Its 2014 and although “King James” has many accomplishments in the NBA, he is missing one! Lebron has never competed in the “Slam Dunk Contest”. Every year right before The All-Star Break, a video seems to “surface” of Bron Bron showing off various Slam Dunks. This year Lebron even went as far to say he’d win the Dunk Contest this year if he entered, leaving us all with the question….” Why don’t you just enter the contest?!” Michael Jordan has been in the contest. Kobe Bryant has been in the contest. Even Dwight Howard has participated! What are you waiting for Lebron?! Maybe you’re waiting so that you can hold the record for “oldest player to enter The Slam Dunk Contest.” At this point my money is on Lebron going bald before he enters The SDC!
2. Manny Pacquiao Vs Floyd Mayweather Jr.
These 2 great boxers were supposed to fight back in 2010 but alleged disagreements between both of their camps caused the fight not to happen! It was supposed to be the highest grossing fight in boxing history. There was word that Mayweather wanted Pacquiao to have an Olympic style anti doping test but Pacquiao denied having a blood work test done because he said it would weaken him before the fight. Since 2010 both fighters have fought many fights but not with each other. Mayweather’s record at this point stands at 45-0, while Pacquiao’s record stands at 55-5-2! If they fight and Mayweather wins then he’ll go down as one of the greatest ever. If he loses he’ll still go down as one of the greatest ever. I think we are all pretty much over this fight happening!
3. Dr. Dre release DETOX
Hip Hop legend Dr. Dre has been in the entertainment industry for over 30 years and counting. He has worked with every artist you can think of! Dre has sold millions upon millions of records with his 2 solo albums, The Chronic & 2001. There has been much anticipation for a 3rd album from Dr. Dre titled Detox. There have been many release dates and confirmation from artist like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and 50 cent. Dr. Dre also has his hand in other ventures besides making his own music such as endorsements, producing for other artists, and even marketing his own line of headphones, Beats By Dre. All of which have played a part in the delay of Detox. Some of his peers in the industry say that Dre’s working ethic is none like no other and when he’s involved with other projects it takes away his motivation to record new material for the Detox album. I guess if we want to hear a full Dr. Dre album then we gotta pull out that Chronic!
4. Jay-z and Dame Dash Work Together..Again
Back in 2013 Jay & Dame reunited for a brief moment and it was great. As far as them working together again its highly unlikely. They built great history with Rocafella and made us all throw our diamonds up. Who knows what Rocafella could have been if there was never any issues between these 2. It was nothing like seeing Dame Dash do his dance with a champagne bottle in his hand onstage at a Jay-z concert. Maybe one day we will see Jay-z perform The Dynasty: Roc La Familia live in concert at Cochella with everyone that was on the album!
5. Another State Property Album
For those who don’t know, the group consists of Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Peedi Crakk, Oschino, Omillio Sparks, Young Chris & Neef Buck. Their 2nd album State Property Chain Gang Vol 2 can easily be considered a philly classic! Although it only sold 296,000 copies, the streets loved it! Who wouldn’t want to hear one more album or at least a mixtape from them. It’s only right! They were like a mini Wu-Tang Clan!

Friday night on ESPN, The Magic Man himself Earvin “Magic” Johnson says that he will put up $1 Million dollars to the winner of next years slam dunk contest if The King, LeBron James enters! I mean not that money matters to LeBron but could you imagine if he enters & wins?! You wouldn’t be able to tell him ish!
