Cleveland Plain Dealer Honors LeBron James With Epic Newspaper Cover

Yet just because the Lakers signed James doesn't mean they'll have an easy road to the NBA Finals.

So right now, LA's sales pitch to James is "come play in California with Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram". After landing James, the Lakers have also signed Lance Stephenson and JaValve McGee. James signed a four-year 154 million dollar deal to send him to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"The Lakers had felt a sense of urgency this week to find a co-star (for) LeBron", either the Oklahoma City Thunder's Paul George or the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said in a tweet on Sunday.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the six-time National Basketball Association champion who was part of the Lakers dynasty through the 1980s, expressed hope that James's arrival signals a change in fortunes. Whether that be the Lakers (LeBron) or the Celtics (Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, Terry Rozier, etc.), Leonard might want to avoid the label that comes with joining a ready-made contender. But it no longer sounds as if it's Leonard-or-bust for the Lakers - there are other trade options, or they could make 2018-19 a building year before jumping into the deep free-agency pool next summer. That was certainly the case with Paul George, who before signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder a year ago, wanted to join the Los Angeles side. After four years back in Cleveland, however, James wanted a change of scenery and made a decision to test out the free agency market. Considering the moves the Lakers made after coming to terms with LeBron, it's not clear they have done that this offseason. "Cleveland" is boldly displayed on the back of his jersey.

The Warriors, though, apparently don't scare LaVar - no matter who they have on their team. This is especially true considering that James agreed to a multi-year deal, which is something he was not willing to do with Dan Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
