Three things we have learned from Summer League

James, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, was in Vegas over the weekend to observe his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, play a summer league game, but he will not be present for the training camp, which is slated for July 25-27 at UNLV's Mendenhall Center.

Josh Hart comes up with a steal and banks in a tough layup, and LeBron James claps to show his appreciation.

Once the Team USA Basketball minicamp begins next week in Las Vegas, one conspicuous individual could be noted for his absence, and that's no other than three-time Olympian LeBron James. "But during the game, if it's not those guys on the court, I don't really pay any attention to it".

James was wearing a pair of Just Don "Lakers" shorts with the iconic yellow and purple color theme, which come etched with the web store's patented logo design strewn across the front - a style that was translated over many of Just Don's high-priced athletic apparel and has since become a brand staple.

Brexit tensions as Tory rebels back a second referendum
Eight officials have quit since that summit, including two very high-profile Leave advocates, David Davis and Boris Johnson . And the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg also said a defeat was possible. "Others saying perhaps we cannot have the bill at all".


Alex Caruso drains a 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left while drawing a foul and LeBron James is pumped up. He was joined by teammate Brandon Ingram as the two stars took in the Summer League quarterfinals.

The 2017-18 season was good for LeBron James' NBA 2K rating.

James signed his new four-year contract worth $154 million with the Lakers earlier this month, a move that Lakers president Earvin "Magic" Johnson called a "huge step" for the team.
