LeBron chooses the Lakers - Newswatch

No matter what happens, an organization that averaged 24 wins the past four seasons is a contender again. I think that had a lot to with race at that time, too, and that was another opportunity for me to kind of just sit back and say, 'OK, well, how can we get better?

James reportedly didn't mind that the Lakers weren't a ready-made championship team and told Johnson he would help build them into one during their Saturday evening conversation. Love also has a player option for the 2019-20 campaign, though the Cavaliers could conceivably deal him next offseason. Klay Thompson, for instance, will be a free agent after next year and given that his father Mychael was a forward on the last two of Johnson and Riley's Laker title teams as well as a current Lakers broadcast commentator, Klay could be a flawless fit alongside James in LA.

The move is a major success for the Lakers, who have had trouble attracting big-name free agents in recent years. The talented but seemingly lethargic Brandon Ingram and the defence-optional Kyle Kuzma?

The Lakers are also working hard to acquire Kawhi Leonard. A starting lineup pairing LeBron and Leonard would be among the most formidable in the league.

This news broke soon after LeBron's decision to join the Purple and Gold and it led to great reactions on social media.

Stephenson would be an interesting addition to the core players that the Lakers already have. LeBron will be the seventh, and will look to add to his already impressive accomplishments. James averaged 87.1 touches per game with Cleveland, the fifth-most in the National Basketball Association last season, and nearly certainly should take over the floor general responsibilities for Los Angeles: his points per touch were nearly triple that of Ball's last season. It would make James the best ever to play the game. He returned to Cleveland in 2014 and helped the Cavs win an National Basketball Association title in the 2015-16 season.

In an Instagram story, LeBron thanked the city of Cleveland for an incredible four years.

The 32-year-old from Tunisia is set to be one of the backups to DeAndre Jordan, who has agreed with Dallas on a one-year deal. Had James opted in to the final year of his existing contract he could have - in theory - forced a trade to Boston, whose asset base is so rich it could offer a collection of salary-matching players and picks that Cleveland could never have turned down.
