LeBron James: Lakers star posts FURIOUS trade message on Instagram

"Just call [a spade a spade]!"

LeBron is furious players are always being brought down by fans for trying to do what's best for them, but it's seemingly just fine for a franchise to treat players like crap. Barnes has had a down shooting year overall, but he's actually having a career year from three when you factor in percentage and volume - 39 percent on over six 3-pointers a game. "It is a dynamic business and you deal with things as they happen".

The deal has significant financial ramifications for Dallas, as it positions the Mavs to be aggressive in free agency this summer, despite taking on the combined $31 million in salary owed next season to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee in the Porzingis deal.

LeBron James wants the "narrative" around player movement to change in the National Basketball Association as the Los Angeles Lakers superstar called out a double-standard after Harrison Barnes was traded by the Dallas Mavericks. "He's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life, and that's the kind of guy that he is".

"Look, this is madness right now, this week is just a zoo", the coach said of the period leading into the trade deadline. That is part of the real compelling aspect of this league and we all understand that.

Twitter reacts to Trump's delayed State of the Union address
Stung by his retreat on the government shutdown, Trump has hardly been in the mood for collaboration with the other party, anyway. According to excerpts of her speech, Abrams will argue that all Americans should have economic opportunity and voting access.

The new Sacramento wing watched the rest of the fourth quarter from the bench, supporting his former Dallas teammates.

The trade gave the Kings another steady contributor as they try to make a move up the standings and into the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

Barnes was in his third Mavericks season and had been one of Dallas' top two scorers each year.

The 26-year-old forward inked a four-year, $94-million contract with the Mavericks in 2016 and is earning $24.1 million this season with a player option worth $25.1 million next year.
