I spent the week out in Los Angeles following the insanity of LeBronapalooza. We talked about where LeBron would end up for an entire week on Fox Sports Live. It’s an interesting life: wake up in the hotel, write for Outkick in the morning, hit the hotel gym for 45 minutes or so, walk over to the Fox studio to eat lunch on the lot then do 3HL for three hours from a second floor bunker at Fox Sports, go meet about TV, eat dinner on the lot, and then knock out Fox Sports Live late in the evening, after most of you are in bed asleep on the east coast. I’ll do writing, radio, and TV every day for an entire week without ever getting into a car. I feel like the most efficient man alive.    

Last night Todd Fuhrman talked about the gambling impact of LeBron James, who causes numbers to move unlike any other athlete in sports. By the end of the week it was clear, if you’d been smart enough to lock in the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA title odds about three weeks ago, you would have the potential for a massive payoff. How much of a payoff? Enjoy this week’s edition of Let it Ride.
