Paul called LeBron a free agent during the broadcast. This made people think that LeBron might be looking at new chances. Paul said, “LeBron is a free agent. You have to decide, and I gotta focus on his business. Let the Lakers hire whoever they want to hire. And he’s always showed up and played for whatever coach is there.”

The analysts on the show noticed Paul’s comment. Chris Haynes asked Paul to explain what he meant. But Paul quickly tried to change the topic.
