LeBron James will not drag out free agent process

LeBron James will not drag out free agent process

Then there was The Return in 2014. How can we get better?

It's official: LeBron James will be going to the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to ESPN, the fourth year of his contract is a player option.

So, while Stephenson has trolled James dating back to their battles in the Eastern Conference Finals when James was with the Heat, it appears as though all those moments are in the past.

The move is a major success for the Lakers, who have had trouble attracting big-name free agents in recent years.

Trading for Leonard would mean giving up pieces of their young core like Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma, plus future draft picks. Ibrahimovic is the third-most decorated active soccer player in the world with his 32 major trophies, and is one of just five active players with over 400 career goals. A starting lineup pairing LeBron and Leonard would be among the most formidable in the league.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: "LeBron James has chosen the Lakers and every other team in the National Basketball Association should be wary of this storied franchise right now".

Wojnarowski tweeted ten minutes later after he revealed James' move: "As trade talks have unfolded, Kawhi Leonard's focus is unchanged: He wants to be a Laker".

The 5-foot-9 former Kentucky player averaged 7.8 points, 4.4 assists and 23.4 minutes in 71 games last season.

"Time for me to take the throne!", said Kirksey, who also proclaimed last month that the Browns will be in the playoffs this season.

That mission was accomplished when the Cavaliers won the 2016 crown with James in the starring role as Cleveland celebrated a sports champion for the first time in 52 years.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons", James wrote on his Instagram story. "This will always be home".

Magic is another guy LeBron has long expressed admiration for, so giving him the first (and only) crack at an in-person meeting is likely what sealed the deal for the Lakers.

League sources told ESPN that the Lakers also added free agents Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee.

Hey, sometimes it's good to roll with the King.
