NBA superstar LeBron James has handed Liverpool players a huge incentive to get their season on track and land silverware this season: a massive party in Las Vegas.

James has vowed to give the players a lavish party they will never forget in Sin City, co-hosted by his pal, rap star Kanye West. Party time: Rodgers' players will be handed a huge party - if they win a trophy LeBron told The Sun: '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.'LeBron added: 'We will take them to places in Vegas 99 per cent of people don’t even know exist.
There is Vegas and then there is Vegas.'He plans to visit Anfield this season with Kanye and his other big hip-hop pal Jay-Z to meet the players again.It's 17 months since James signed a deal with owners Fenway Sports Group to take a minority shareholding in the Merseyside club who have floundered despite massive investment in new players.
