Liverpool players get party incentive
NBA star LeBron James has given Liverpool players every reason to start winning games - a party in Las Vegas co-hosted by Kanye West.
Sunday's 2-0 defeat by Arsenal has left the Reds with just one point from their first three games - their worst start to a season for 50 years.
Matters have not been helped by Liverpool loaning out Andy Carroll to West Ham which has left manager Brendan Rodgers with just one recognised striker in his squad.
However, Miami Heat small forward LeBron, who owns a stake in the club through his stake in Fenway Sports Group, has told Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard that if the team wins a trophy this season they can start packing their bags in the summer.
James told the Daily Mail: "I spent some time with Steven Gerrard and he is passionate about his team
"Everybody in sport needs incentive and if the guys at Liverpool win something this year I will give them the best weekend of their life in Vegas.
"Kanye is in and trust me, nobody does Vegas like LeBron and Kanye."
James is also planning to meet the players again this summer - along with West and Jay-Z.
He added: "I am coming over to see a game soon with Kanye and Jay-Z so maybe we can talk more about the trip then."
