LeBron James To Lakers Might Speed Up Hawks Rebuild

LeBron James Cavs Championship Trophy LeBron James jersey sales booming after Lakers signing

Given Durant plays for the best team in the league and has won the title in the last two years, his decision to remain with Golden State is perfectly understandable-particularly as he could still hit free agency next season after signing a new deal. James already was aware of the upstate challenge he'll face after losing three of the last four NBA Finals to the Warriors in Cleveland.

James is arguably one of the best to play the game, reigning over the East with eight consecutive Eastern Conference Finals and NBA Finals appearances. Keep in mind, James signed a four-year deal in Los Angeles.

The most interesting storyline for the Lakers may be how die-hard fans of James co-exist with die-hard Lakers fans. Lance Stephenson will surely provide some value coming off the bench and provide flexibility to the Lakers roster.

Ball's fans might fear those numbers will dip and his development might stall following Rondo's arrival from the New Orleans Pelicans. He is known for his high-basketball IQ (that will compliment LeBron's playing style) and is a gifted passer who can average 10 assists per game. "He's going to make Lonzo better because he's the best player".

At this point, it seems as though there was more upside to trying to keep Randle than making moves for players whose respective reputations don't match up to their actual production. Succeeding with the Lakers is something different, according to numerous men who have worn this gold jersey. The Lakers, however, will have to give up on at least 2 or 3 of their young players along with 1 or 2 Draft Picks.

He says he's not "planning anything now" but if the WTO doesn't treat the United States properly, "we will be doing something". Trump publically criticized the WTO during his election campaign in 2016, describing the organization as a "disaster".

This is huge for the Lakers especially when it comes to a potential Leonard trade. Barring an unlikely change of heart on an extension with the San Antonio Spurs, Leonard will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason.

Regardless of what happens during the season, the new look Lakers will surely be full of unique characters. Does LeBron Want to Play With Lonzo?

That could be an issue, as James is renowned as one of the greatest playmakers in National Basketball Association history, and he can't make his remarkably precise passes without the ball in his hands.

Ball told TMZ Sports he's not anxious about the defending champion Warriors getting even stronger with the addition of free agent center DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins.
