LeBron James’s L.A. Lakers Jersey Is Already a Best-Seller

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

On one hand, the Lakers have LeBron James, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo, and Lance Stephenson. As now constructed, the Lakers are nowhere near championship contention, even with James. Before free agency revved up, the company created virtual storefronts and even physical samples for every one of James' possible destinations, based on Vegas odds.

Furthermore, Wilt Chamberlain played just five seasons with the Lakers, the last five of his career, and is absolutely revered amongst Lakers fans as his number hangs in the rafters alongside the rest of the legends.

It was then reported that the Lakers had renounced Julius Randle, making him an unrestricted free agent. Those young players and future picks can be crucial to improving if a team signs star players like James or Leonard in free agency.

"He has to buy into it, nearly like Paul George did".

According to Larry Coon of ESPN and Basketball Insiders, the asking price from San Antonio is extremely high when it comes to what they want from Los Angeles.

The CSU's leadership were tight-lipped as they arrived at their party's Munich headquarters to discuss Merkel's deals. Party leader Andrea Nahles said that "the CSU is on a unsafe ego trip that is paralyzing Germany and Europe".

Another reason for James's willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers is the team's proximity to Hollywood.

Meanwhile, back in Cleveland, the city James departed for a second time is moving quickly to say goodbye to James after a departure, having suffered through similar pains when he left the Cavaliers in 2010 for the Miami Heat.

Cleveland's Kevin Love is no longer part of a championship contender, and that means the Cavaliers are in a state of flux. They gave big contracts to Smith, Shumpert, and Tristan Thompson to keep together a championship core. This was all because of the pressure James put on the organization with his short-term contracts and his demands to win now. All he got to do is run the lane and pass going to be right on the money.

James' decision to move west to the Los Angeles Lakers already looks to have a flurry of affects across the league, whether directly involved with the Lakers or Cavs, or indirectly as a chain-reaction.
