  • Lakers players not named LeBron ranked by their likelihood to remain on team

As Lakers fans continue to express excitement following Sunday's news that James intends to sign with their team, business in downtown L.A. are also looking forward to the 14-time All-Star's arrival.

It's unknown whether the Los Angeles Lakers are feeling more pressure to land Kawhi Leonard now that DeMarcus Cousins has signed with the division rival Golden State Warriors.

Rajon Rondo, who helped the Boston Celtics win an National Basketball Association title in 2008, reportedly joined LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday as a revamped lineup begins to take shape. Now that James has gone West, 11 of the 12 players who have been an all-NBA first team selection the past five years are in the Western Conference. Though with James joining the team this week, the Lakers' starting lineup is going to look completely different next season.

Stats: Aaron Finch creates T20I history
D'Arcy Short was the second highest scorer in the innings with a steady 42-ball 46. 2 - Aaron Finch reached his second T20I 150. The performance smashed the previous record of 156 runs that Finch posted against England in 2013.

Perhaps James wanted to join the Lakers because of his family's wishes and his own aspirations in the film and entertainment industry.

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

If Kawhi Leonard is going to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers this season, the San Antonio Spurs will not be letting him go for cheap.

She also thanked concerned followers, writing, "Your kindness and support is truly a blessing". "This is what a hero looks like". The grateful owner posted the story of their snake encounter on Facebook , alongside photographs of Todd's swollen features.

According to The Athletic's Jason Lloyd, James knows the Lakers don't have a shot at competing for a championship this year and wants to be patient and help the team grow.

Rondo reportedly agreed to sign a one-year contract with the Lakers on Monday.

Whether that impacts LaVar's title predictions is unclear, though the Lakers should have ample opportunity to add impact players with LeBron in town, regardless of the last names involved. He advanced to eight straight NBA Finals that routinely last until mid-June.

The rest of the East's potential playoff teams - the Miami Heat, Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets - all wouldn't have a prayer of making the playoffs out West, whereas many as 10 teams could surpass 50 wins next season. The Lakers qualifying offer made Randle a restricted free agent, meaning the Lakers could match any offer. Cedi Osman came over from Turkey, Ante Zizic and Rodney Hood were acquired through trade, and Collin Sexton was selected eighth overall in this past draft.
