LeBron James, Lonzo Ball Will Win Lakers Championships, LaVar Ball Says

  • LeBron James' $154 Million LA Lakers Decision Helps Drive Sales for Fanatics

"I would like to see a revival of the Celtic-Lakers rivalry because that's probably the best rivalry in basketball", Angara said, noting that James's presence would boost the Lakers' chances of reaching the playoffs. With their on-court history, it is easy to understand why fans can't imagine them playing together in one team. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only power move as the defending dynasty the Golden State Warriors also strengthen their numbers.

On Friday, James informed the Cavs that he was not exercising his $35.6 million option and becoming a free agent.

LaVar Ball called LeBron James the "best player in the game", and said his son Lonzo would make a good sidekick when the two team up for the LA Lakers next season.

During the 2017-18 season, James averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game and shot at 50 percent on the field. One site that thought about it several weeks ago was Sportsbook Review, a site dedicated to sports gambling and revealing the latest odds from the world's best online sportsbooks, and predicted exactly why LeBron would be joining the Lakers before he made it public. "And LeBron's gonna be fine with that on the fact that he's not 6-1, 6-2 like Kyrie". Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is staying, along with - for now - the young core of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart. If the Lakers are able to sign Kawhi Leonard, get ready for the 2018 version of Jordan-Pippen.


In a new look inside the Lakers' post-LeBron moves, Brian Windhorst of ESPN explains that LBJ and Magic Johnson met on the first night of free agency and reviewed the Lakers' plans. The Lakers should finish in the top 4 in the highly competitive Western Conference ( home of probably top 10 out of the top 15 players in the NBA). Signing a four-year contract, James joins the Lakers making them even more formidable than before.

For the second time in his career, James is saying goodbye to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who drafted the teenage sensation from Akron in 2003 and have to be satisfied with winning just one title in the 11 years they had him.

Not only are they odd moves because, well, they aren't exactly great players, but they also don't fit too well with LeBron's style of play.
