Chinatown Market Trolls the NBA After LeBron Signs With Lakers

Chinatown Market Trolls the NBA After LeBron Signs With Lakers

LaVar Ball talked about LeBron James joining his son Lonzo and the Los Angeles Lakers.

While the Lakers could create more room under the salary cap by parting ways with Britain's Luol Deng or free agent Julius Randle, the signings mean Los Angeles is likely to wait until 2019 when they can make another run at a top free agent.

There's a risk in waiting for Leonard, as the Lakers just saw this summer.

James' decision to move west to the Los Angeles Lakers already looks to have a flurry of affects across the league, whether directly involved with the Lakers or Cavs, or indirectly as a chain-reaction. The treasure trove of assets the Celtics took in from the ill-fated trade the Brooklyn Nets made with them five years ago for aging icons Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett allowed them to simultaneously compete while building for the future. There's another team obviously in L.A.

They arguably got a better deal by trading Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz and Iman Shumpert to the Sacramento Kings in a three-team deal that brought them George Hill and Rodney Hood. "Lakers with LeBron? You don't give my son the best player in the game and don't think he gonna win no championships". "My sources are saying Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, two firsts and two pick swaps ..."

There has been plenty of debate over whether or not the Philadelphia 76ers should trade for Kawhi Leonard.

The forward then became an unrestricted free agent last week, heavily expected to finally join the Lakers, only to perform a u-turn and stay on at OKC. Don't feel too bad for Cleveland, though as fans there seem to be supporting the move: Cleveland is the fourth-largest market buying James' new Lakers jersey.

If there's one thing that we've learned this offseason, it's that Magic Johnson can get things done.

James' vacation time has been cut short during the past eight years of his career. James, naturally, had only himself to beat after creating a sales spike when he returned to Cleveland in 2014. Chandler is a proven scorer and a long-time National Basketball Association starter who will add depth and veteran leadership to the up-and-coming Sixers, who also will receive a second-round draft pick. And let us not forget that the shortstop is under contract through 2021.
