Mark Wahlberg is abs-olutely thrilled LeBron James signed with the Lakers

LaVar Ball is confident in the Lakers this season after LeBron James made the decision to move to Los Angeles and play with Lonzo Ball and company.

On the surface, it's easy to figure out why LeBron James chose to be a Los Angeles Laker.

That process could still reportedly include the addition of Kawhi Leonard this year via a trade or next offseason when he becomes a free agent. Similarly, given Los Angeles could clear enough cap space for two max contracts, the suggestion at least another All-Star would join LeBron in California was nearly taken for granted.

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 said Sunday night on the condition of anonymity.

That means, for now at least, James' four-year, $145M signing is likely the only seismic move on the horizon for the Lakers.

"Lonzo's gonna orchestrate it, and (LeBron's) gonna be fine with that as long as it results in winning". But with LeBron James on the roster, the Lakers jumped from 20/1 to win the title to 7/2. The franchise added more veteran talent to their young core by acquiring veteran guard Rajon Rondo to a one-year $9 million deal and guard Lance Stephenson to a one-year $4.5 million deal.

TMZ: A few months ago, you called LeBron to LA. I knew he was coming to LA! "We're going to play so fast, he'll throw (James) touchdown passes and he'll be scoring all day".

Given Ball's eagerness to get into high-profile feuds, it's probably worth noting that he named three Lakers but omitted Kobe Bryant, who is considered by numerous team's fans as the greatest player in its storied history. He worked with a superstar lineup that included Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

Rajon Rondo agrees to one-year deal with Lakers
The Lakers are the fifth team the 32-year-old Rondo since he was traded from the Celtics to the Dallas Mavericks back in 2014-15. ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports that Randle requested the Lakers renounce his rights earlier on Monday.

Regardless of what happens during the season, the new look Lakers will surely be full of unique characters.
