Did ex-teammate do LeBron a favor by waiving Tyson Chandler?

"There's so much pressure when you play with LeBron".

For his career, the 7-foot-1, 240-pound Chandler, the second overall pick in the 2001 National Basketball Association draft by the Los Angeles Clippers and traded that night along with Brian Skinner to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Elton Brand, carries averages of 8.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 28.2 minutes 1,086 games (875 starts).

And James hailed the 2012 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, claiming Chandler's rebounding will help the Lakers shine in the Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Lakers held off the Minnesota Timberwolves in a nail biting finish to record their fifth win of the 2018-19 season. "I love this city the way they love me".

"When you're homegrown and going to high school here, now you have the same fans and you represent the jersey everybody has been cheering for their entire lives, you kind of become one".

James added 10 rebounds and nine assists, just missing out on his second triple-double as a member of the Lakers. "Now it's great to be on this side and actually rep 'em". Derrick Rose promptly hit back-to-back 3-pointers for the Wolves, trimming the lead to one with 1:06 left.

The City of Calabasas Twitter revealed early Friday morning that the Woolsley Fire has spread to 7,300 acres with no containment. All of Malibu has been ordered to evacuate, which is home to numerous celebrities and Hollywood executives.

"I told him he needs an opt-out clause wherever he's at", James said with a smile.

Rose scored 31 points and Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 0-7 on the road this season with their fourth consecutive loss overall.

Hopefully the addition helps get Luke Walton off the hot seat, too. The Kings have lost two straight since winning five in a row.

James, who led the Lakers in scoring, nearly ended up with a triple double, with the small forward dropping 24 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

James contributed 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists, and calmed the nerves of his young colleagues down the stretch. Minnesota had a 32-30 lead after the first 12 minutes.
