  • LeBron James' $154 Million LA Lakers Decision Helps Drive Sales for Fanatics

The franchise added more veteran talent to their young core by acquiring veteran guard Rajon Rondo to a one-year $9 million deal and guard Lance Stephenson to a one-year $4.5 million deal.

James' agreement with the Lakers was announced through a simple press release sent by his agent, Rich Paul, which says James, a 14-time All-Star, three-time Finals MVP, and two-time Olympic gold medalist, was joining the Lakers. With the addition of LeBron, the Lakers are instantly back in the championship picture.

"The NBA does better when the Lakers are at their highest potential", Bryant, who retired in 2016, told Fox Sports Radio on Monday. It was his stellar play that pushed them back to become the first team in National Basketball Association history in the Finals to overcome a 3-1 series deficit back in 2016. As a parting gift for his dowdy first-love, he reminded the folks in Cleveland that he brought them a ring and that was something they could both always cherish. George even agreed to a four-year max contract.

On HBO, SpringHill premieres the documentary "Student Athlete" in October and has a doc about Muhammad Ali still to come, and at Netflix, James' company is working with rap star Drake to adapt the United Kingdom crime series "Top Boy" for 2019. He goes on to predict some "championships for the Lakers", claiming that LeBron's four year window gives them room to go four in a row.

A man so impatient to win National Basketball Association titles already has three and, by taking a patient approach, may have the chance to add more in Los Angeles. But LeBron's departure from Cleveland has also reverberated in the Eastern Conference, all but assuring that the Celtics, 76ers, and to a lesser extent the Raptors, will be locks for the top spots in the East.




Last season, rumors swirled about Lakers players being uninterested in playing for the Walton when the team was on a losing streak.

LeBron James is gone from Cleveland, and so, too, is the very big Nike billboard that was erected as a love note to James after he returned to his hometown Cavaliers in 2014.

LeBron James is leaving home for Hollywood and an iconic team.

Why would the Spurs then do Leonard a favor by sending him to Los Angeles to form a super team that would be on the Spurs' schedule several times per year? Antawn Jamison led the team in points per game (18), Mo Williams in assists (7.1), Anderson Varejao in rebounds (9.7), and Daniel "Boobie" Gibson in spirit (110%).

A native of Brooklyn, Stephenson played with the Charlotte Hornets, the Memphis Grizzlies and the Clippers. Fanatics saw a 600 percent gain in sales across the Fanatics network including the NBA Store's site in the first three hours compared with his 2014 announcement to join the Cavaliers, according to a Fanatics spokesman.
