LeBron James Approved All Of Lakers’ Recent Acquisitions

  • Stipe Miocic Sounds Off On LeBron James Ditching Cleveland, Signing With Lakers

The power forward shot 45.8% from the field, and served as a nice complement to the all-around playing style of LeBron James. Plus, Los Angeles itself provides LeBron the opportunity to continue to grow his brand.

From George Mikan to Kobe Bryant, superstars have been the Lakers' lifeblood for decades.

After news broke DeMarcus Cousins was signing with Golden State earlier this week, Embiid subtweeted at James.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo will all be joining on one-year deals.

That still leaves the question of why LeBron is okay with the Lakers going in this direction, instead of surrounding him with more shooters as was the case in Cleveland.

Thai Diver Dies During Cave Rescue Operations
The governor of Chiang Rai , Narongsak Osottanakorn, told a press conference he wanted a rescue plan that posed the minimum risk. Shlomo said he had come at the request of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "to see how Israel can help its friend Thailand ".

Here is the answer: exactly what James and Lakers president Magic Johnson planned when they met for more than three hours on the first night of free agency.

Julius Randle, Isaiah Thomas and several others are out. You think he's amped up and wants to join LeBron now? Talking with the Spurs about a Kawhi Leonard trade will be Johnson's biggest and most hard task, but if he can get a deal done, LeBron will have his needed sidekick. And let's not forget that LeBron's presence will most assuredly reap benefits for the Lakers in the future as there will be other illustrious free agent talents who will be wooed by the King's siren call.

A team's head coach has never been a huge factor in a LeBron decision... unless you count Miami Heat general manager Pat Riley recruiting him, which is a bit of a stretch.

Last week, Magic Johnson suggested the Lakers were operating on a two-year plan and would not be rushed into decision this summer, particularly given Leonard, Irving, Klay Thompson and DeAndre Jordan will be unrestricted free agents in 12 months. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season.
