NBA Free Agency 2018: The Los Angeles Lakers are back

  • LeBron James was the biggest name available in free agency. He's now a Los Angeles Laker

LeBron James' new Los Angeles Lakers jerseys are already a top-selling item online, according to retailer Fanatics, the NBA's e-commerce partner. The 33-year-old James has taken on the challenge that Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O'Neal all accepted near the primes of their careers. Succeeding with the Lakers is something different, according to numerous men who have worn this gold jersey.

The Indians haven't won the World Series in 70 years, but they came close just two seasons ago.

"During a tough stretch in December, Buss thanked Lakers supporters while expressing her support for the coach with a Twitter hashtag, "#InLukeWeTrust". Jerry (West) was here. As for calling Jordan the greatest, Ball said, "Right now you've got to say Michael, until LeBron wins somewhere else, which is at the Lakers". It's his turn now.

It hasn't been rapid, but the franchise has taken big steps under Walton.

But, what about the Golden State Warriors signing DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins - is LaVar concerned about the reigning National Basketball Association champs?? "My family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do", he said after the Cavaliers were swept by the Golden State Warriors 4-0 in the NBA Finals. Since the news broke on Sunday, July 1, the National Basketball Association has been in the news constantly as free agents sign new contracts. James deciding to leave the Cavaliers, again, left fans wondering what will be left of the city. After all, he owns two multi-million dollar homes in L.A. His production company, Spring Hill Entertainment, is housed in Los Angeles also.

Sons of Salto Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez drive Uruguay’s campaign
Angry critics have blamed Georgina for Portugal's 1-2 defeat in Saturday's pulsating game in which Ronaldo failed to find the net. Cavani had to fall behind the line of the ball to help out in midfield. " Uruguay's biggest strength is Uruguay", he said .

"You don't give my son the best player in the game and don't think he gonna win no championships!" George even agreed to a four-year max contract. Fans gathered among the statues in Star Plaza outside Staples Center, tossing chalk into the air in a simulation of James' famed gesture.

Within hours of James' decision, the Lakers began a feverish recruitment process that saw them add the likes of Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and JaVale McGee. Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma should be off the tables.

There's still an outside chance that Magic Johnson and the Lakers could work out a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

In Los Angeles, there's a mural of Bryant, who retired in 2016, on Melrose Avenue.
