James Worthy Rumors
The Lakers have hired James Worthy to help work with the team’s coaching staff. “James was one of the best forwards to ever play the game,” said General Manager Mitch Kupchak in a statement Monday. “We feel he will be a valuable addition to the coaching staff and will do an excellent job teaching our group of big men. We are pleased and fortunate to welcome him back to the organization.”
Hall of Fame basketball player James Worthy has put a home in Bel-Air on the market for $2.195 million. Worthy, who owns other property on the Westside, bought the house in 1997 for $945,000, property records show.
Lakers great James Worthy, now a team broadcaster, gave the wildest praise yet for 19-year-old Kristaps Porzingis, who will face the Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center Monday night in the Knicks’ second summer league game. After his 12-points-in-18-minutes showing against the Spurs in his Knicks debut Saturday, Worthy said on the Lakers broadcast: “He’s a freak of nature. He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. It’s a good pick for the Knicks.’’
