Hosted by

LeBron James worked out at the Lakers training facility for the first time on Thursday. He’s taken a role in the national conversation on race, and he got into a Twitter spat with President Trump. Also, the NFL had its first big night of pre-season games on Thursday, and the fight over the national anthem is back.
