With LeBron choosing Los Angeles in free agency, the Eastern Conference is now wide open.

Philadelphia was one of the rumored destinations favored to snag James. James will make his next public comments on July 30 in Akron when he opens a public school started by his family foundation.

Medium Large is looking to add motivated individuals with big dreams and a big appetite for success to our LakersNation.com direct sales team based in Los Angeles or Orange County. Considering that both NY teams are hot garbage, the City of Angels was the obvious choice.

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. He returned to Cleveland in 2014 and helped the Cavs win an National Basketball Association title in the 2015-16 season.

After news broke DeMarcus Cousins was signing with Golden State earlier this week, Embiid subtweeted at James.

That's according to his former teammate and current ESPN analyst Ryan Hollins. For a lot of reasons, I fell out of love with L.A. If Cousins is healthy then it's very possible.

Rondo was named on the NBA All-Defensive First Team in 2010 and 2011.
