Report: Lakers have 'inside track' to signing LeBron
Only days away from the NBA Free Agency beginning, the race for LeBron James is now at a breaking point. “This is a good day for the Los Angeles Lakers.
is officially a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, and now we can all speculate about what the rest of the roster around him will produce on the floor in the coming season.
Photos of James signing the contract made the rounds yesterday, and now the Lakers are on the PR tour. You wouldn’t think a guy like LeBron would need that in a city like LA, but here we are.
Speaking on Spectrum SN in Los Angeles, President of Basketball operations Magic Johnson said that he was surprised by how much LeBron knew about the players currently on the Lakers roster. He also said that he talked to him about who LA should sign moving forward.
Kawhi Leonard reportedly still wants to be a Laker, even after adding LeBron James
Bombs away, LeBron James has signed a four-year deal to join the Lakers. Now, the next domino to fall is Kawhi Leonard and where he will go. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kawhi Leonard still wants to be in Los Angeles after LeBron James has now signed.Sources: As trade talks have unfolded, Kawhi Leonard’s focus is unchanged: He wants to be a Laker. https://t.co/0wZGf5MrNt— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 2, 2018Before free agency began, rumors were flying that Kawhi Leonard didn’t like the idea of playing with LeBron James, even if that means it was in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, the thing that really stuck out to me was what GM Rob Pelinka said about James notifying the team of his decision.
Apparently, it was just a one-word text from LeBron’s agency with some emojis.
Look, “Congrats” is the text you send to two friends when they start officially dating each other, or when someone you know eats a 96 oz. steak during one of those “eat it all and get it for free” challenges without barfing.
Landing who is perhaps the best NBA player to ever walk the earth is not really in that category. I’m not sure what I would expect LeBron’s agency to send in that scenario, but I wouldn’t take anything under the two fist bumps and three flame emojis.
Get ready for the Lakeshow.
