LeBron James travels to Italy after signing deal with Lakers


The Los Angeles Lakers needed to matter again, so they had no choice but to convince LeBron James to join their team.

After LBJ committed to Los Angeles, Haynes said the 27-year-old became a priority signing for the team and he has come to terms on a one-year deal believed to be worth $4.5 million.

Can the Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors? He reportedly met with the Philadelphia 76ers in Los Angeles, too.

Unlike past free-agent decisions, James wasted no time in announcing his next move.

Most notably, James' move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Lakers means the already ridiculously strong Western Conference gets even stronger with the addition of the best player in the world.

Preorders for new Lakers LeBron James jerseys were robust enough on Sunday night to give retailer Fanatics one of its top 10 sales days in terms of National Basketball Association gear sold, a spokesman for the company told ESPN. Unfortunately, Bosh's career has been put on hold following the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season due to blood-clotting issues but not before the Heat's Big 3 had already been dismantled by the departure of James. Now, after returning to Cleveland, winning a title and getting back in the good graces of all his OH homefolk who considered him a traitor when he left before, he'll thaw in one of the warmest spots in the Western Division.

Without knowing the opponent on the Lakers' opening night at home, StubHub has listed the game as "2018 Home Opener" with tickets starting at $450. But the Lakers still have plenty of cap space after signing James, and could still add more talent.

The moves made by other teams simply shape the competition the Jazz will have as they try to build a championship contender.

The Lakers have agreed to free-agent deals with guards Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Lance Stephenson and veteran center JaVale McGee, league sources told ESPN. Whether it's right or not, he is constantly compared to Michael Jordan and the ultimate measure of his career for many is how close he can get to Jordan's six titles. James taking Cleveland to its first title in 2016 kept the Warriors from capturing four straight.

He said he was "the guy who protects the president and the family" and "the guy who would take a bullet for the president". Stephanopoulos said that in several instances, Cohen broke with Trump in characterizing the federal investigations.

There's nothing worse than a bandwagon fan, and like Carr, I've been a Lakers fan since I could walk as an infant, and with LeBron now joining the team, there will be plenty of new Lakers fans strutting their colors. In 2014, you yelled "Cleveland, this is for you!" after you helped the Cavs win the title. Fans reacted angrily the first time he left the team in free agency.
