  • LeBron James loses pickup game to UCLA players

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    LeBron James was at UCLA on Wednesday and lost a pickup game to some current players, according to a UCLA source and the Internet.

    The King’s team reportedly included Darren Collison, Aaron Gordon and Nick Young, while he played against incoming UCLA freshmen Jaylen Hands, Cody Riley, and LiAngelo Ball. 

    Hands is poised to help take over the point guard spot from Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, LiAngelo’s older brother.

    “I’m sure there is pressure,” Hands said last month in Philadelphia. “But for me, I just zone it out. Stay in my own lane. Just to do what I can do to push my brand forward, but on top of that, it’s just the team. Win as much as you can, play as hard as possible.”

    Former UCLA guard and NBA MVP Russell Westbrook was also on hand but I’m told he didn’t play.
