These 3 NBA Stars Will All Be Lakers Targets In 2019

10 thoughts on Le Bron James committing to the Lakers

LeBron James is to join the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-year deal worth $154m (£116m), his camp has announced.

The Lakers were also reportedly targeting New Orleans free agent center DeMarcus Cousins. He spent four seasons with the Miami Heat before returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014. Which means they now have five players from last year's NBA All-Star Game on the same team that won last year's championship, and the one.

This is the second time the enormous image of James will be removed.

LeBron James joins one of the NBA'smost iconic clubs.

At the time, George signing with the Thunder certainly stung, as this was thought to have hurt the chance of the Lakers getting LeBron James.

The Celtics come out of the weekend sitting third on the National Basketball Association championship odds at +510, well ahead of the 76ers, who have tumbled to +1425 after failing to attract James to the City of Brotherly Love, while the Cavaliers have made a massive drop to a distant +50000.

"As trade talks have unfolded, Kawhi Leonard's focus is unchanged: He wants to be a Laker", ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted after James' move to California was announced.

According to The LA Times' Brad Turner, Johnson showed up at James' house at 12:01 ET/9:01 PT on July 1, the minute free agency began, to recruit James to the Lakers.

Overall, it was a great job by both Magic and Pelinka to sell James on coming to Los Angeles.

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood.

"LeBron accelerates the learning curve for these young guys and they will be able to learn a lot faster because they will get a chance to watch him work every single day, how he comes to practice, how he takes care of his body and how he handles his nutrition".

Actually, let's start there since it relates to much of the confusion generated Monday by the news that the Lakers had agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal with Rondo.
