LeBron's arrival transforms Lakers back into glamour show

LeBron James was the biggest name available in free agency. He's now a Los Angeles Laker

Here's the reality of the situation: no matter what uniform he wears, LeBron James is going to be LeBron James, and it doesn't matter if Lonzo Ball is tagging along for the ride or not.

"Saw this blasphemy of LeBron's face taped on top of #mambaonmelrose, so I had to do what was right", Perez wrote on Twitter. "He didn't go to the Rockets, he didn't go to Golden State, he went to [the] Lakers, a team that finished 10th or 11th in their conference and now they're the number two favorite to win the title". On Sunday, July 1, 2018, James announced he would be joining Ball and the Lakers to try and dethrone the Golden State Warriors and grow his own legacy. Until then, this next chapter of his career will be fascinating to watch and may indeed bring a championship banner back to the Lakers. 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. Expect more moves for President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson.

Last season, rumors swirled about Lakers players being uninterested in playing for the Walton when the team was on a losing streak.

As of now, it is safe to say that there will be no any problem having LeBron James and Lance Stephenson in one team. After bolting from Cleveland in 2010, he returned in an emotional homecoming four years later, determined to make the Cavs champions. Gilbert opened his comments by referring to Cleveland's 2016 title as "a championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed". The bad blood between James and Stephenson started during the Eastern Conference finals matchup between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers in 2014. Evans is coming off a resurgent season in which he averaged 19.4 points, 5.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds over 52 regular season games. He worked with a superstar lineup that included Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

At the very least, it should be an entertaining season in L.A. Sure, Bronny, 13, likely could reach his basketball potential anywhere - disposable income has that effect.

On Monday, NBA salary-cap expert Larry Coon reported on Spectrum SportsNet that the Spurs could be seeking Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, two first-round picks and two pick swaps.
