LeBron James to join LA Lakers

LeBron James to join LA Lakers

With James signing in Los Angeles, that should invite plenty of agonizing debates regarding which player is better: LeBron James or Kobe Bryant.

James isn't planning any more comments and there won't be a welcoming press conference or celebration in Los Angeles, a person familiar with his plans told The Associated Press on Sunday night on the condition of anonymity.

The Philadelphia 76ers are getting a chance to pitch their process to LeBron James.

And Chrissy Teigen had some home truths to deliver about LA.

Canada tariffs on USA goods from ketchup to lawn mowers begin
When Canada's retaliatory tariffs were first announced, Bilous said he met with Alberta business leaders to hear their concerns. In a news conference Friday, Bilous stressed that "illegal, protectionist" tariffs hurt people on both sides of the border.


Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James (23) reacts during the final seconds of the fourth quarter of Game 3 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Wednesday, June 6, 2018.

Yes, LeBron James is now a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, and, as such, we're likely to get some competitive, meaningful basketball between the Warriors and Lakers for the first time since... when? Currently, the rule serves as a way to force players to either complete one year of college basketball in the USA, or travel overseas to play in an global pro league for one season. It's expensive and will be easily worth it for bringing the Lakers back to relevance and, potentially, back to contending for a championship.

At worst, Los Angeles now has a team that can go a round in the playoffs, if not two.

There are other reasons suggested for LeBron's move across the country though. But the Lakers will instantly rise with James, a three-time champion who after being swept by the Warriors in this year's NBA Finals said he is still driven and very much in "championship mode". Riley, the Miami Heat president, coached Magic - the current Lakers president - and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to four National Basketball Association championships in the 1980s.

Speaking about the meddling, Bolton told the " Fox News Sunday " program: "I think it's something that we're concerned about. Since Trump assumed presidency, the two leaders have held several phone conversations, including the latest one on March 20.


Paul also represents Simmons and James has been complimentary of the Rookie of the Year. Steph Curry? That's something LeBron probably doesn't want to see while he's still playing.

That young core is excited about LeBron to the Lakers. The fourth season on the contract reportedly includes a player option. Scrapping this rule would likely remove the minimum draft age of 19 as well, which opens the door for Bronny to jump to the big leagues straight out of High School, just like his dear old Dad.

It might be a longshot, but it's the only thing getting Cavs fans through right now.
