Instant Reaction: LeBron James leaves Cavs for Lakers

02 July, 2018, 05:55 | Author: Amy Huff
  • Cleveland Cavaliers' Le Bron James walks to the bench during the first half of Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Cleveland. Two people familiar with the decision say Ja

With Cousins coming off an injury, the Lakers may be able to get Cousins at a discount.

If the Sixers are going to give up a haul like that for Leonard, then they obviously need to know they can re-sign him long-term.

In his four years since returning to Cleveland, James averaged 26 points with 7.7 rebounds and 8.0 assists.

Woj also dropped the bomb that, despite talks between San Antonio and Los Angeles cooling in recent days, Kawhi Leonard still remains hell-bent on becoming a Laker next season as well, lining the Lakers up to suddenly springboard back into title contention.

James informed the Cavs on Friday that he was not exercising his $35.6 million option and becoming a free agent. That's made it tough for Cleveland to upgrade its roster, but the Cavs remain committed to bringing back James even for just one more year. James loves the Hollywood lights, and with two homes in the Los Angeles area as well as a film production company, he has already established some roots in the land of movie stars and slow-moving traffic. Now that he's in Los Angeles, that's impossible.

The NBA's most glamorous team has landed LeBron James, his agency confirmed on Twitter Sunday (Monday, Manila time).

The Philadelphia 76ers, whose young star Ben Simmons has the same agent as James, were also in the hunt with James, hoping to build a potential triple threat alongside the Australian and Cameroon forward Joel Embiid. Throw in the chance to stay in the familiar Eastern Conference and play for a storied franchise (James has frequently counted Julius Erving and Allen Iverson among his favorite all-time players), and the Sixers would have appeared to be near the top of the list.

LeBron James is leaving Cleveland again, but this time there was no television program to announce the news and crush a title-hungry city's heart.

With the Lakers, James will be playing in the Western Conference for the first time and just down the Pacific Coast Highway from the Warriors, the team that has stymied him three times in the past four finals. It also helps that the Lakers are one of the game's premier franchises. In Los Angeles, championships are the standard and he'll feel new pressure in upholding the legacies of Johnson, Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West and other Lakers greats. So far, James representatives have been taking meetings in Los Angeles, and it is unclear if James will leave California to take face-to-face meetings with teams.
