Actually, let's start there since it relates to much of the confusion generated Monday by the news that the Lakers had agreed to a one-year, $9 million deal with Rondo.

"Lonzo ain't going to play off the ball", he said. He has once again made headlines after talking about what LeBron James signing with the Lakers means for the franchise, as well as his son. Sonny Angara favors the much-talked about transfer of National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Last month, it was revealed that Leonard wanted to be traded away from San Antonio with his preference being the Lakers.

If fans bought a Cavaliers LeBron jersey in the last 90 days, Fanatics has a Jersey Assurance program that enables consumers to exchange, free of charge, a James Cavaliers jersey for either a James Lakers jersey or a new jersey of a player on the Cavaliers.

Perhaps the Lakers weren't locks to land quality free agents like Tyreke Evans or DeMarcus Cousins. Curry's improved playmaking and shooting make him a solid fit for a Lakers team that is in dire need of more shooters and spacing. Evans offers the same sort of skill set as Stephenson but at a higher level and without the on-court antics.

While the pain of not having James anymore will be unavoidable in the coming seasons, considering the reactions to his departure throughout Cleveland, it seems many agree that it was all worth it. James did return in 2014 and led the Cavs to the 2016 NBA title, ending a 52-year sports championship drought for Cleveland, before departing for the Lakers in the wake of four consecutive NBA Finals appearances for Cleveland.

Los Angeles is certainly going to be a contender in the Western Conference, but it is hard to see them getting past the Warriors with the current roster that they have put together.

"One thing that's been made abundantly clear".

Again, we can not underestimate how significant it is that LeBron James is now a Laker. Here are five reasons to love the Lakers signing James. "Some championships for the Lakers".
