A general view of a new LeBron James banner outside Quicken Loans Arena before a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks on October 30, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Last season, when rumors LeBron might opt out of the final year of his deal with Cleveland began circulating, the Lakers were immediately installed as favorites to land him. LaVar on people who say the Warriors are going to easily win another title next year, especially since they signed Cousins: "The Warriors can sign Boogie, Prince, Michael Jordan, anybody they want". Keep in mind, James signed a four-year deal in Los Angeles. The same can be said about McGee, Caldwell-Pope and Stephenson's respective contracts but it does seem as though the Lakers paid a premium on players that other teams weren't bending over backward to sign. After all, he owns two multi-million dollar homes in L.A. His production company, Spring Hill Entertainment, is housed in Los Angeles also.

A pre-sale of the James jersey began at 8:45 p.m. ET on Sunday night, less than one hour after the four-time NBA MVP announced his intention to sign with the Lakers.

That process could still reportedly include the addition of Kawhi Leonard this year via a trade or next offseason when he becomes a free agent.

Of course, Ball couldn't make his argument without at least some trash talk, so he took a few jabs at Irving while attempting to favorably contrast his son with the five-time All-Star, now with the Celtics.

Julius Randle agrees to two-year deal with New Orleans Pelicans
The Lakers are the fifth team the 32-year-old Rondo since he was traded from the Celtics to the Dallas Mavericks back in 2014-15. The Lakers have renounced Julius Randle, added Lance Stephenson , JaVale McGee and re-signed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

On Tuesday, Yahoo Sports NBA insider Shams Charania appeared on "The Herd" and suggested Leonard was now considering his options.

Rondo is viewed as one of the smartest players in the game and that should see him be a good fit alongside James.

It's hilarious to watch so-called Lakers fans publicly pondering whether they can still support the team with James on board. I knew he was coming to LA! 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.

Most would think that Miocic would be disheartened to hear of James' departure from Cleveland. He ventured into post at times with the Cavaliers, especially in the playoffs to take advantage of mismatches, but the physical toll of posting up, as well as the burden of creating offence for this teammates, meant that James couldn't back down every play.
