LeBron James honored in Cleveland newspaper


With LeBron James set to play for the Lakers next season, we look back at some of the best moments of his career at Staples Center.

The Lakers have failed to reach the playoffs for the past five seasons.

That's $76 million - or more depending on Deng's future - leaving ample space to sign a major free agent among a group that could include Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant or, yes, Kawhi Leonard.

During four seasons at South Beach, James and co won two championships before the OH native chose to return home to help the Cavaliers win a title.

Preorders for new Lakers LeBron James jerseys were robust enough on Sunday night to give retailer Fanatics one of its top 10 sales days in terms of National Basketball Association gear sold, a spokesman for the company told ESPN.

McGee doesn't have quite the same history with James, but he did apparently get on the latter's bad side enough to have been blocked by James on Instagram.

The US on Wednesday asked all countries to stop oil imports from Iran by November 4 this year, adding that waivers are unlikely. As per economists' forecast, the data is expected to show a draw of -2.4M vs. -5.9M previously.

Before Sunday's announcement regarding James, George had agreed to a multi-year contract with the Thunder and the likelihood of the Lakers landing Leonard in a trade from the Spurs appeared to be dwindling.

In the meantime, after conducting a youth movement over the past few years, Los Angeles is following up the addition of the 33-year-old James by getting older in other parts of the roster.

The power forward shot 45.8% from the field, and served as a nice complement to the all-around playing style of LeBron James.

This year, that sponsorship will be worth a lot more.

According to The LA Times' Brad Turner, Johnson showed up at James' house at 12:01 ET/9:01 PT on July 1, the minute free agency began, to recruit James to the Lakers.

Before signing with the Lakers, James was also linked to the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets.
