Lakers-Heat NBA Finals betting odds: Expect LeBron James, Anthony Davis to lead L.A. to a title in style

This is somewhat premature, but in the past several days, 2021 championship odds have begun to circulate. Unsurprisingly, the Lakers are the early favorite, and with the 2020 championship now likely in hand, it’s never too early to start thinking about future profits. So here’s something to ruminate on as the Lakers fight to win their 17th championship: if LeBron James plays at this level next season (a big “if”), the Lakers will almost certainly be better next season than they are now. 

Unlike most of their fellow contenders, there is a good chance they’ll be able to use the full Mid-Level exception in free agency.

Where To Buy Mattel’s Susan B. Anthony Barbie And Other Inspiring Women Barbies

Mattel (MAT) is paying tribute to heroines of the world with a line of Inspiring Women Barbies that will now feature Susan B. Anthony.

Anthony, who was a trailblazer for women, was arrested in 1872 at her Rochester, New York, home after she voted in the presidential election, which sparked the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, giving women the right to vote. She was pardoned by President Trump in August.

Mattel said the new Barbie collection “pays tribute to incredible heroines of their time.” The company continued by saying these “courageous women took risks, changed rules, and paved the way for generations of girls to dream bigger than ever before.”

The Anthony Barbie features a doll in a floor-length black dress that is accented with lace on the long sleeves and bodice. She has a cameo brooch that fastens her lace collar and is packaged in a specially-designed
