LeBron on the court for the Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been the most active team so far throughout NBA free agency.

As of yesterday, Rob Pelinka and the LA front office have added 12-time All Star Carmelo Anthony, former No. 11 pick Malik Monk, former All-Rookie First-Team guard Kendrick Nunn and four former Laker veterans in Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, Dwight Howard and Kent Bazemore.

The team also re-signed 20 year-old guard Talen Horton-Tucker and added superstar point guard Russell Westbrook by way of trade last week.

Some believe this new-look roster has the Lakers poised to contend for an NBA title, but others have been critical of these franchises additions.

So far, the biggest criticisms have revolved around the team’s league-high average age.

LeBron James responded to these concerns on Twitter Wednesday.

“Keep talking about my squad, our personnel ages, the way he plays, he stays

LeBron James deletes fiery tweet about Lakers old roster

LeBron James hears the geriatric chatter about his retooled Lakers roster.

In a since-deleted tweet, James demanded critics keep that same energy throughout the season.

“Keep talking about my squad, our personnel ages, the way he plays, he says injured, we’re past our time in this league, etc etc etc,” James wrote Wednesday, after the Lakers acquired a number of veterans in free agency, including 37-year-old Carmelo Anthony and 32-year-old Russell Westbrook

“Do me one favor PLEASE!!!! And I mean PLEASE!!! Keep that same narrative ENERGY when it begins! That’s all I ask,” the 36-year-old James continued, adding the hashtag, “ThankYou,” and his signature crown emoji.

It was unclear why James deleted the fiery tweet about the Lakers roster, which has an average age of 32.4 years old — not only the oldest team at the moment but also one of the oldest of all-time, according to SB Nation.

Bears WR Allen Robinson

The Chicago Bears have done plenty of things right this offseason, including drafting Justin Fields and addressing their offensive line issues. The team has failed in a big way when it comes to its top wide receiver, however.

After contract talks with wideout Allen Robinson stalled last fall, they never really picked up again, and general manager Ryan Pace couldn’t manage to secure the services of the best offensive player his team has had over the last three seasons.

“Talks have been pretty slow,” NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said about the situation with A-Rob on a July 11 episode of SportsCenter, via Alex Seats of 247 Sports. “They’re going to leave the door open for talks in the final days and hours and sort of hope for the best, but there simply has not been much momentum. I’m told Robinson is ready to try

Trump staffers reportedly tried to ‘shamelessly’ jump the COVID-19 vaccine line

Trump administration staffers at almost every professional level “shamelessly” attempted to jump the COVID-19 vaccine line in the early stages of the national drive late last year, a senior administration official told Vanity Fair. It reportedly didn’t matter how healthy they were, if they were working home, or how seriously they took pandemic precautions before the shots were available. The requests were coming through. It’s unclear who and how many people were successful in their efforts to get vaccinated within the administration, but Vanity Fair notes that many of them ran into a wall. “It ain’t happening” was a common response to the requests, another senior administration official said. That was in part because former President Donald Trump made it clear White House employees should wait their turn. Still, the attempts appear to be representative of the
