Lakers rise on National Basketball Association championship odds, Raptors remain steady

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Remember when the Los Angeles Lakers signed LeBron James?

Four-time All-Star Rondo, a 32-year-old point guard, who has made stops in Boston, Dallas, Sacramento and Chicago, averaged 8.3 points, 8.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds a game last season for New Orleans. This is especially true considering that James agreed to a multi-year deal, which is something he was not willing to do with Dan Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have already won the 2018 offseason by securing the services of the world's best player, LeBron James.

"However, when Magic spoke to James late Saturday, he assured them this was a long term play and his decision wouldn't be affected by a transaction they could make under a time pressure". "How's LeBron going to play point?" He averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game for IN last season, his first campaign without missing a game.

The banner had become a staple of Cleveland after James returned to the city and led the Cavaliers to several National Basketball Association finals.

Los Angeles is certainly going to be a contender in the Western Conference, but it is hard to see them getting past the Warriors with the current roster that they have put together.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is reacting a lot better than most Cleveland fans to the recent news of LeBron James' departure from the city.

"Around Kawhi, what's been made abundantly clear is that there's not an interest to join a superteam". Here are five reasons to love the Lakers signing James. 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.
