LeBron James camp insider reveals reason behind Los Angeles decision

LeBron James camp insider reveals reason behind Los Angeles decision

The Lakers have also reportedly shown interest in signing free-agent center DeMarcus Cousins, seen by many as the best big man in the National Basketball Association. "How's LeBron going to play point?" In an interview with ESPN earlier this year LaVar Ball, the father of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, said he did not believe the players enjoyed being coached by Walton.

That would be a dagger for LaVar Ball, a Los Angeles-area native who reveres the Lakers and had seen an oft-stated prophecy fulfilled when that team drafted his oldest son. Many NBA fans might remember the iconic highlight of Stephenson blowing into James' ear during the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals.

LeBron James' latest team is the Los Angeles Lakers, which gives it an edge that will be crucial in deciding how the Lakers fanbase rejoices in the coming games. LeBron has been the No. 1 victim of Stephenson's antics, and the most memorable thing he did was when he blew into James' ear.




James also executive produced the 2016 CNBC reality series "Cleveland Hustles", which focused on entrepreneurs in the city where the OH native spent most of his career. While in Los Angeles following a family vacation, he spoke to Cavs general manager Koby Altman moments after free agency opened on Sunday, and it appears that was more a courtesy than a chance for Cleveland to make one last pitch. Lonzo's not ball-dominant, where he's just dribbling the ball while you're watching him try to do a crossover and make a layup down the lane. Now, they are as short as 3/1 in places to end the Golden State dynasty, with a best price of 9/2 available.Contrast that with the Cavaliers, a team that has gone from a 25/1 shot at the end of June to a staggering 500/1 best price.

To win another championship, LeBron will have to overcome some challenges. "Anybody would enjoy playing with my boy, it's always been like that", he added. You've got LeBron here now. In Los Angeles, championships are the standard and he'll feel new pressure in upholding the legacies of Johnson, Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West and other Lakers greats. What was also endearing is that he had put together some huge performances on that stage with him putting the Cavaliers on his back nearly willing them to more titles over a highly-talented Golden State Warriors team.
