NBA: LA Lakers Targeting LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony in 2014

The Los Angeles Lakers are said to be targeting LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony in 2014.

ESPN Los Angeles' Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst report this as the latest development from the Lakers in light of their failed attempt to re-sign center Dwight Howard. Opinions on whether the team will be able to sign either of the two superstars are diverse, they add. Regardless, the Lakers will make a run at one or possibly both of them who could become free agents by next year. 

James, the 2012-13 NBA MVP, is said to be not thinking about his options just yet, according to an ESPN source. 

"It's all wishful thinking at this point. Teams are doing more wishing than LeBron is wanting right now.

"It's not about where LeBron wants to go [to win]. He already has two rings. If LeBron moved to Reno, teams would come to him."

On his part, Anthony is also unclear about his plans once the 2013-14 NBA season concludes. Another ESPN source confided it would "make sense" for him to exercise the early-termination option on his contract in order for him to get a more lucrative four or five-year deal.

Fox Sports West confirms both James and Anthony have opt-out clauses after next season which will allow them to decided whether to stay with their teams, the Miami Heat and New York Knicks, or not. James has two years of player options on his contract whereas Anthony has one.  

Should the Lakers be intent on pursuing either player, Kobe Bryant's contract will definitely be a point for consideration. The 2013-14 marks the last year of his contract in which he is scheduled to make $30,453,805. He is not willing to take a pay cut in spite of Howard and Metta World Peace's departures. 

"For me to sit here and say,'Oh yeah, I'm just going to take a huge pay cut. Nah, I'm going to try to get as much as I possibly can. I'm not taking any at all. That's the negotiation you have to have."

Things should be very interesting in Los Angeles once the 2014 free agency period kicks in.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
