After several months of anticipation, James has officially signed a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers worth $154 million.
But at the same time, no one - not LeBron, nor the Lakers' front office - is unaware of their lack of shooting, and they could make moves to address that problem.
In his second stint with the organization, James helped lift the franchise to great heights with four straight NBA Finals appearances along with winning the first NBA title in franchise history. With the addition of LeBron, the Lakers are instantly back in the championship picture.
"Welcome to the family", Bryant tweeted, and offered congratulations to Johnson, general managerRob Pelinka and Lakers controlling owner Jeanie Buss.
Check out all the 2019 National Basketball Association conference and championship odds over at Sportsbook Review and if you've got a hunch, bet a bunch! LeBron has been the No. 1 victim of Stephenson's antics, and the most memorable thing he did was when he blew into James' ear.
"Kevin Durant ain't coming to L.A. Kevin Durant plans to stay in Golden State".
"Nobody can swing the pendulum of power like LeBron James", Sharpe said.
James and his legacy may be irreplaceable to the city, but before focusing on a team that may be good when they start in August, start focusing on the one living up to expectations now. Currently, the three teams to beat in the East are the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors.
The game's biggest star will now lead a young Lakers team - run by Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson - that has been over-matched in recent years while rebuilding. Expect more moves for President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson. The banner went up after James returned from Miami to the Cavs in 2014. Gilbert opened his comments by referring to Cleveland's 2016 title as "a championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed". In 2013, he married his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson.
Seeing James and Lance Stephenson as teammates will be a stark contrast from their matchups as opponents.
Why would the Spurs then do Leonard a favor by sending him to Los Angeles to form a super team that would be on the Spurs' schedule several times per year? While he finished with a decent 10.2 points, 7.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game, he struggled with injury a lot while also going through bad patches of form.
