LeBron James: This is Kyrie Irving’s Show

(LeBron) James, however, made it clear on Saturday he doesn’t want to always take the ball out of (Kyrie) Irving’s hands. Part of the appeal of playing alongside Irving means James doesn’t have to work as hard on offense and he won’t always have to initiate. Theoretically at least, it should save some mileage and keep him fresher for the postseason.

For all the talk of getting the young guards off the ball, James made it clear he still wants Irving running this team.

“In certain sets, I’ll probably handle the ball a little bit, but this is Kyrie’s show,” James said. “He’s our point guard. He’s our floor general and we need him to put us in position to succeed offensively. He has to demand that from us with him having the ball.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
