Lance Stephenson follows LeBron James to the Lakers

LeBron James is joining the team where Kobe Bryant made his mark. More

The King, LeBron James, announced he would be joining the Los Angeles Lakers. "The odds have been stacked up against me since I was an adolescent", James said at this year's NBA Finals. He has also played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves. This time, he thanked James and offered "nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform". He returned home to the Cavaliers the next season and ended a championship drought for Cleveland with the National Basketball Association title in 2016.

The fact the Lakers are second-favorite to win the title next season is even more remarkable considering they last became NBA champions in 2010, also the a year ago in which they reached the NBA Finals. Plus, James has a good relationship with Simmons.

The meeting occurred after James' agent reportedly had conversations with the Cavaliers. But a playoff berth is, on paper, the best-case scenario, because the supporting cast isn't good enough to contend with the two powerhouses of the conference: the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets. VanVleet bounced between the D-League and Raptors in his 2016-17 rookie season, but the former Wichita State improved his game and has been rewarded.

And congratulations to the Boston Celtics on making the 2019 NBA Finals.

But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since. The win at the end of the 2015-2016 season marked the city of Cleveland's first professional sports title in 52 years.

The OnePlus 6 Red Edition price in India has been set at Rs. 39,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration. The OnePlus 6 Red phone is ideal for those who are living large with personality and enthusiasm for life.

The 6-foot-10 center averaged 6.0 points and 5.4 rebounds last season.

The scenario would make a lot of sense since Sierra Canyon is the school of choice for the children of Los Angeles based A-List celebs, including four players last season with National Basketball Association pedigree.

Shortly after the 12:01 EDT a.m. start on Sunday, Cavs general manager Koby Altman spoke on the phone to both James and his agent Rich Paul, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussion. Cleveland could choose to keep him and build around him as well, although he has two years left on his deal and likely wants to continue competing for titles at this stage of his career.

This is the riskiest move of James' career, as these Lakers are mired in the worst stretch of their storied history, and it remains to be seen if there are any more stars coming their way (the Lakers have been in talks with San Antonio about disgruntled star Kawhi Leonard, though talks have cooled recently). But those rumors also came with the idea of James luring Paul George to L.A. George instead chose to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, so James and the Lakers will need to go in a different direction to made further upgrades to their roster.
