He opens up about the experience to James Corden on Carpool Karaoke.
Lebron James is one of the more unusual guests on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment, but in a recently unveiled extended preview we see him opening up about getting mentions in rap songs, his good buddy Jay-Z and rapping along to a hip hop classic from the nineties.

Michael Jordan’s ‘Tune Squad’ uniform from ‘Space Jam’ is up for auction.
The uniform Michael Jordan wore in Space Jam is being auctioned off and it’s certainly not going cheap. The ‘Tune Squad’ shirt and shorts basketball superstar Jordan wore during the scenes he shot for the animated game between the Looney Tunes and the Monstars in the film is being auctioned online in October.

Amy Schumer makes her big screen debut with a script that feels like a much-extended sketch from her TV series. It's hilariously observant and refreshingly grown-up about sex, but the plot falls back on the usual cliches. Even with some clever twists and turns, the structure is oddly predictable. But the biggest surprise is that Schumer and director Judd Apatow ultimately cave in and take a traditional approach to romance.
As she does on her show, Schumer plays a sexually frank woman called Amy. Taught by her father (Colin Quinn) to distrust monogamy, she has indulged in a commitment-free life, rarely seeing a man more than once. And her one repeat male partner (John Cena) is a rather too self-obsessed bodybuilder. Then her boss, blithely demanding magazine editor Diana (Tilda Swinton), assigns her to interview Aaron (Bill Hader), a doctor who specialises in sports injuries. Amy can't help but seduce him; it's what she does! But in the process she realises that she actually quite likes him. This idea so rattles her that she sabotages her close relationship with her sister Kim (Brie Larson), who is expecting a child with husband Tom (Mike Birbiglia).
Schumer has impeccable comic timing, and she's hilarious all the way through this film, playing on her character's riotous way of being shockingly honest at all the wrong times. In other words, the character is entertaining but never very likeable because of the thoughtless things she does and says. So our sympathies lie with Hader, who gives an unusually layered turn as a smart, sensitive and very funny guy who just might be too good for Amy. Other characters are either here to provide emotion (Larson and Quinn) or to shamelessly steal scenes (Swinton). And Apatow brings in a usual stream of big-name cameos, including Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a clever pastiche of a New York indie movie.

Amy enjoys her life in the big city with her comfortable apartment, wacky friends and driven job as a reporter for a men's magazine. As a young girl, her parents sadly divorced, and her father wasted no time in drumming into her that a lifelong partnership with just one person left much to be desired. So she's certainly taking her father's words literally and seems to enjoy the company of a different man every night (though never the full night); it's a life that she has no plans to change any time soon. However, something shifts in her consciousness when she meets sports doctor Aaron Connors on whom she's been commissioned to write an article. The pair hit it off right away, but after their first night together, Amy's left wondering if ending it there is really the best thing to do. It feels weird to carry on seeing someone after she's slept with them, but at the same time, she can't remember the last time she had so much fun.

Why do celebrities seem to be now all using Samsungs?
Oh dear Lebron James probably didn't make Samsung execs too happy on Wednesday when he took to Twitter to complain about his phone erasing itself. You see, James is being paid big money by Samsung to promote their products so his angry tweet wasn't very good publicity. Of course the tweet was then soon deleted. But James isn't the only celebrity Samsung has on speed dial, lately it seems many celebs have been all to keen to show off their Samsung products.
LeBron James was left unhappy when his phone got erased
Remember when Ellen DeGeneres took that famous selfie at this year’s Oscars? Well, whilst we were all looking to see just how many famous faces we could spot what we were really meant to be looking at was the phone Ellen used, it was a Samsung Galaxy 3 Note. Samsung were big sponsors at the Oscars and their cheeky bit of product placement with Ellen served them very well, the picture she tweeted was then retweeted 3 million times within 24 hours. With those retweets Samsung got an estimated 900 Samsung mentions a minute on social media. Not bad at all, until Ellen sent out her next tweet which happened to come from an iPhone, oops.

Lebron James and Funky Buddha Wednesday 1st August 2012 Members of the U.S.A olympic basketball team enjoy a night out at Funky Buddha nightclub in Mayfair. The group arrived in a convoy of taxis at 2.30am...just 30 minutes before the club closes. Their security team escorted them inside the club, but forgot to pay one of the taxi drivers the Â£35 fare. The driver was left waiting outside the venue, but was refused entry to go and collect his fare. The players stayed until last orders, before perhaps sensibly opting to walk back to their hotel to avoid futher complications with taxi drivers!
