LeBron James a no-show at pizza party celebrating LA arrival

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hundreds of fans hoping to see new Los Angeles Laker LeBron James had to make do with free pizza instead.

James was a no-show Tuesday at the Blaze Pizza outlet in Culver City. James tweeted a day earlier about a "pizza party" at the location and fans hoped it was a hint that he might attend.

James is an investor in the pizza chain. Blaze gave away pizzas at Southern California locations Tuesday afternoon to celebrate his move to L.A.

The first fan in line at the Culver City store, Janet Raines, arrived at 7:30 a.m. and waited for hours but said she wouldn't be disappointed if James never showed.

Raines said James probably wants to spend time with his family before the season starts.
