LeBron James trades The Land for LA LA Land: Crowquill

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers believe that it was Ball's camp that leaked the news and their response was to sign Rajon Rondo to a one-year deal.

While Rondo has demonstrated that he can still contribute, especially as a passer, his defense and shooting are still severe limitations in his game. Kentavious Caldwell Pope has opted to return to the Lakers after agreeing to a 1-year deal. With disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard still out there and having reportedly asked to be traded to the Lakers, it's tough to just jump to the conclusion L.A. has outright flubbed its big acquisition of James. He would even add that Lonzo, the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft last year who turns 21 later this year, would help the 33-year-old play better. Yes, it might allow LeBron to play off-ball some more this season, but that's not going to work as well as it could with no one who can space the floor. The Lakers' 35 victories last year were their best performance during five years without a postseason game for a team that had never missed the playoffs more than two seasons in a row.

Julius Randle, Isaiah Thomas and several others are out.

So how did the Warriors land Cousins?

Walton has previously expressed his appreciation for the support that he has received from the Lakers' front office which also includes president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka. Furthermore, Evans agreed to terms on a one year, $12 million contract with the Indiana Pacers.

To win another championship, LeBron will have to overcome some challenges. Did the Warriors just create the most dominant starting lineup ever?

After LeBron James announced he was joining the Lakers, it was only a matter of time - like nanoseconds - before LaVar Ball, who had been predicting the move for months, weighed in on it. It is especially concerning that the Lakers couldn't convince Paul George to meet with them before deciding to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder. But with LeBron James on the roster, the Lakers jumped from 20/1 to win the title to 7/2.

Given Ball's eagerness to get into high-profile feuds, it's probably worth noting that he named three Lakers but omitted Kobe Bryant, who is considered by numerous team's fans as the greatest player in its storied history.
