Found September 06, 2012 on The Juicy Online:
Lebron James knows how to excite the Liverpool soccer club, as it's being reported that James has told the Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard that if the team wins a trophy this season that he'll set up a party for the team in Las Vegas, which will be hosted by rapper Kanye West. 

James told the Daily Mail: "I spent some time with Steven Gerrard and he is passionate about the team. Everyone 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."



James has a stake in the team through his stake in Fenway Sports Group.

James is planning to meet with the players once again this summer, along with rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z.

Lebron added: "I am coming over to see a game soon with Kanye West and Jay-Z so maybe we can talk more about the trip."

Hopefully the team will play for the trophy instead of a free trip to Las Vegas.
