Lakers Are Building an Anti-Cavaliers Team Around LeBron

Lakers Are Building an Anti-Cavaliers Team Around LeBron

LeBron James shook up the basketball world on Sunday when he spurned the Sixers and Cavaliers to strike a four-year, $153.3 million contract with the Lakers.

James has signed a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. Talking with the Spurs about a Kawhi Leonard trade will be Johnson's biggest and most hard task, but if he can get a deal done, LeBron will have his needed sidekick.

What made James' move to Hollywood surprising is that it seemed to have come without a carefully orchestrated plan. 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.

And sure, it's hard to read too much into this, but maybe James has another candidate in mind as it relates to the Lakers head coach. His goal is to surpass LeBron James, not to help LeBron win more rings. Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times revealed that before Stephenson reached an agreement with the Lakers, his agent first called James' camp to see if he's okay having him on the team. The Lakers may not win the championship this year but they will be challenging the (overpowered) Warriors who now have 5 All-Stars in their team after signing DeMarcus Cousins from the Pelicans. The second biggest free agent this year wasted no time in re-signing with OKC and at least for the moment, has given small-markets hope. "You know the Big Baller don't ever be on mute!" he proclaims, before promoting his JBL league kicking off later this month.

Furthermore, it was only a year ago that Kyrie Irving demanded to be traded out of Cleveland to become the main attraction in Boston.

While James has yet to meet with his new coach, he has previously spoken about his respect for Walton in a post-game interview last season. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season. He worked with a superstar lineup that included Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Lonzo's going to get along with anybody he plays with.
