LeBron James captains Team LeBron against Team Steph (Curry) at the NBA All Star 2018 at Staples Center on Feb. 18 in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — Two days after the Los Angeles Chargers used their first-round pick on safety Derwin James, he stood in the team’s media room, watching the club’s second- and third-round picks, Uchenna Nwosu and Justin Jones, conduct their first interviews as NFL players.

While they talked about their dreams coming true, James was caught in the back of the room in a daydream of his own.

James is a basketball fan, he said. Loves the game and wowed Florida State fans with a between-the-legs windmill slam while in college to help signal his knee was healthy.
