LaVar Ball Guarantees Two Lakers Championships With LeBron James

"This move creates considerable buzz around LeBron, and as he plays on his new team, that should be positive for Nike", he said. "L.A".

And once again, he guaranteed multiple championships for the Lakers. Before free agency revved up, the company created virtual storefronts and even physical samples for every one of James' possible destinations, based on Vegas odds. L.A. signed former James nemesis Rajon Rondo and overpaid Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to the tune of $12 million for one year. "It's by far the strongest free agent or traded player performance we've seen in the National Basketball Association", says Jack Boyle, Fanatics' co-president of direct-to-consumer business.

He won't come at almost the same price as other top trade targets such as Kawhi Leonard, and given the Cavs poor cap situation, the Bulls would have a ton of leverage in any trade talks. Paul George reportedly made it known past year that he planned on joining the Lakers this summer, so the Indiana Pacers traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With the Lakers signing LeBron James, there are certainly a lot of things to take in for what his impact on the franchise will be. They still ain't gonna win with this team right here.

So the Lakers' pursuit of Leonard may continue.

This is the second time King James is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland's Kevin Love is no longer part of a championship contender, and that means the Cavaliers are in a state of flux.

The Indians haven't won the World Series in 70 years, but they came close just two seasons ago. They traded a top-10 protected pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Kyle Korver.

Unlike the first time James left the Cavs in free agency back in 2010, this latest departure has a completely different feel.

Additionally, with Kawhi Leonard potentially available in trade discussions during the upcoming season, it benefits the Lakers to showcase Ball as much as possible and increase his potential value in trade discussions.
