While this wasn't anything close to erecting billboards around the Los Angeles area trying to lure James like one longtime Lakers season ticket holder did last week, the Staples Center crowd clearly wanted James to know that they'd love to see him again here next season and preferably in a purple and gold No. 23 jersey.

Though James has also been linked to the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers, the aforementioned four teams are reportedly in his final shortlist. Los Angeles emphatically snapped its seven-game losing streak against Cleveland. The Kid from Akron has played in 66 games with the Cavs this season, averaging 26.9 points on 54.3 percent shooting from the field (37.1 percent from beyond the arc), 9.0 assists and 8.4 rebounds.

They alleged that Yahoo knew about security vulnerabilities back in 2012 and about a 2014 hack as it occurred. The breaches exposed usernames and passwords used to login to Yahoo accounts to hackers.

Scoring 24 points and making seven assists during his 31 minutes on court, James put on a show for "Money" as he watched on from his seat. The Lakers' entire season has been created to prove their young core would fit splendidly around James, Paul George or DeMarcus Cousins - or failing that, the top free agents in the class of 2019.

The Cavs were no match for Randle, who produced one of the most impressive games of his career. He was the only Cleveland starter outside James to score in double-figures.

The Lakers did have a lot of fun on Sunday night at James' expense. The Lakers would have to do some serious maneuvering to re-sign Randle while adding two max free agents, but it's possible.

The Lakers had held a 72-63 lead with less than three minutes gone in the second half, which resulted in a Cavaliers response that saw them run off nine unanswered points to tie the game. The forward finished with five points in Utah's win over the Pelicans.

"What's your biggest area of concern right now?" a reporter asked James following Sunday's game.

LOS ANGELES - This was the Isaiah Thomas the Cavaliers hoped they traded for last summer.
