Josh Bell had a difficult decision to make: Spend a large part of the offseason in Los Angeles or Miami?
“I figured I couldn’t go wrong either way,” the Pirates first baseman said. “But my sister lived in Miami for a while, so I’ve been there before. I’d never really spent much time in Cali, so I decided to go to L.A.”
To be exact, Bell spent most of his time in Newport Beach, Calif., which was close enough to see LeBron James play in person for the first time. Bell attended three Lakers games and observed the celebrities who routinely visit the Staples Center.
