Blockbuster move: LeBron James signs with the Los Angeles Lakers
04 July, 2018, 02:45 | Author: Gerard Cortez
The 2,600-pound banner posted on the Sherwin-Williams Global Headquarters Wall was originally installed in 2014 when James returned to Cleveland from the Miami Heat. The players are nice in theory - Stephenson is a big, athletic ball-handler who can be a pest on defense; McGree is a rim-running, rim-protecting big man; Rondo is one of the smartest players in the National Basketball Association and one of the most gifted passers - but they have rarely ever fully utilized their skills, particularly in recent years.
That would turn him into a free agent, and he reportedly has eyes on going to the Lakers to play with James. However, late Sunday night, James' decision was announced and he will be a member of the Lakers. But Durant, the Finals MVP in Golden State's successive triumphs over the Cavs, will re-sign with Golden State on a deal that leaves room to make further moves. Of course, the entire premise is based on one thing: The purported desire Leonard has to play for the Lakers and their potential superteam.
The move ends months of speculation over the future of the fourteen-time NBA All Star, who will now leave his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, for the second time.
The eight-time All-Star, who would be playing for his fourth team in as many years, averaged 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds for the Hornets, his 14th in the league.
The Lakers contract will see the 33-year-old paid 154 million dollars, Klutch Sports Group said in a statement.
"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons", Akron-native James wrote.
When LeBron James puts up 51 points - not to mention eight rebounds and assists - and you still can not beat the Golden State Warriors, you are not going to come out on top in a seven-game series.
But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since. One man can only do so much, and the Lakers probably need another superstar before they're legitimate title contenders capable of matching up with the Warriors and Houston Rockets, among others.
It's the last long-term max contract that James can sign thanks to the NBA CBA's Over-38 rule (formerly the Over-37 rule). Can the Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors? Well, at least young and outspoken centre Joel Embiid isn't.
OnePlus cooperation with colleagues from the American company Qualcomm suggests which processor will receive the device. They would like to have one of the primary smartphones available with help for 5G network in the United States.
Carr didn't stop there, issuing an application for those wishing to root for the Lakers now that James will be playing there. Many have already wondered what the NBA Finals might look like without James taking on the Warriors every year.
The 36-year-old is now 183rd in the rankings but has called for players returning from pregnancy to have protected seedings. New mother Williams, who is only ranked 183rd in the world, secured the 25th seeding ahead of Cibulkova who is ranked 32nd.
