The 33-year-old Los Angeles Laker, according to Variety Wednesday, is working with writer Steve Mallory on a comedy film - which has been sold to Paramount Players - he would co-produce and potentially headline. It's interesting for him to make a move. Despite his difficulties sticking around anywhere long-term aside from the Indiana Pacers, Stephenson has shown to be a versatility playmaker with the ball in his hands while being an effective defender.
Q:How do you see the LeBron move?
McGee was signed after the Lakers used their first-round pick on big man Moritz Wagner.
Pelinka and top executive Magic Johnson hope the result is a sturdy, defence-minded team with enough up-tempo offence to trouble the Warriors, the Houston Rockets and every other contender for the title.
"Zo, great young guard, getting his shooting better", JaVale said. [President of basketball operations] Earvin [Johnson] and I had a conversation and LeBron echoed this sentiment: I think to try to play the Warriors at their own game is a trap.
"If you study championship and playoff teams of the past, if you look at Michael Jordan having a player like Dennis Rodman, look at Kobe [Bryant]'s teams with Metta [World Peace], having a tough player that brings an edge to the game like Lance is a really nice ingredient", Pelinka said. "They were calling him soft and questioning his toughness, and LeBron was doing it in comments to the media". Irving can become a free agent in 2019. So the West obviously got stronger with LeBron but you've still got to beat us.
There's a lot that's been made about the competition in the West and his eight straight Finals appearances and all that, but that just makes everybody raise the antenna up a little bit - including us.
