Lakers plan to surround LeBron James with tough-minded playmakers

Three hours after the jerseys went live, Fanatics had already seen a 600% spike in sales compared to the same period when James announced his return to the Cavaliers before the 2014 National Basketball Association season, the retailer said. The Lakers also agreed to a one-year, $12 million contract with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is a quality player that can contribute on both ends of the court. I am not a fan of renouncing the rights to Julius Randle to bring Rondo in on a similar price, but here are three reasons why this is a good addition for the Lakers.

But, what about the Golden State Warriors signing DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins - is LaVar concerned about the reigning National Basketball Association champs??

Per the report, the Lakers were looking for "tough-minded playmakers" like Rondo and Stephenson.

"All that said, LeBron did tell the Lakers on Saturday night that he likes Lonzo's game and is excited to play with him", Shelburne tweeted. Many suspect his next fortune will be made in the entertainment industry.

LaVar Ball firmly thinks his son will be the flawless sidekick to the newest Los Angeles Laker, LeBron James. George ended up signing a long-term deal in Oklahoma City. As teams with possible interest, and cap space, filled out their rosters, Cousins became resigned to the idea that his best move may be to sign a one-year, midlevel exception deal with a contender.

"That is what the Lakers have always been about", he said. However, Julius Randle and Isiah Thomas are already set to move out. The Warriors are the next most popular team, with support still coming in for them at 22%.Golden State still have a way to go to match the Celtics' eight Championships in a row from the 50's and 60's, but they are 5/4 best price to win their third consecutive title and their sixth in the last seven years.

Just ask Bryant, who won two Olympic gold medals as James' teammate while spending his entire 20-year career with the Lakers.

The 26-year-old is a versatile player who can stuff the stat sheet, as evidenced by his averaging 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game with the Indiana Pacers last season.

It is very likely that Lakers' front office discussed these deals with James and his representatives prior to finalizing them, which means he doesn't have the same concerns that many people outside of the Lakers' organization do. The monster could be looming over the Western Conference in the near future.

The iconic Nike LeBron James banner will come down today.

Meanwhile, after getting drafted second overall in 2017, Lonzo only played in 52 games for the Lakers a year ago, and averaged just 10.2 points and 7.2 assists. They have zero chance to challenge the Warriors for supremacy in the West, especially after GSW's latest blockbuster signing (more on that later).

Again, we can not underestimate how significant it is that LeBron James is now a Laker.

Not only are they odd moves because, well, they aren't exactly great players, but they also don't fit too well with LeBron's style of play.
