Why Lonzo Ball Should Beware Rajon Rondo’s Lakers Arrival

The Los Angeles Lakers have added JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson in a weird set of roster decisions since signing LeBron James.

They have brought in the likes of Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo, and there have been some around the league who have questioned exactly what the team is doing.

James has received more of a warm welcome from future Hall of Famer and former Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

"Congrats @kingjames going to the Lakers", Wahlberg wrote in the caption.

"Welcome to the family @KingJames #lakers4life #striveforgreatness @JeanieBuss @MagicJohnson and RP well done!" he stated. Offensively, we have never seen LeBron James play so efficiently and one could argue that the last season ( his 15th ) was his best since he was drafted #1 overall by Cleveland back in 2003.

That could be an issue, as James is renowned as one of the greatest playmakers in National Basketball Association history, and he can't make his remarkably precise passes without the ball in his hands. He played 52 games during his rookie season, averaging 10.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 7.2 assists in 34.2 minutes per game.

The Lakers were reportedly targetting New Orleans free agent centre DeMarcus Cousins but he is now expected to sign with the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

While the prospect of playing alongside 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook for another four years might be alluring, George's decision came as a minor shock given the Thunder are unlikely to be vastly improved from the team who finished fourth in the Western Conference last season.

"Nobody can swing the pendulum of power like LeBron James", Sharpe said. Fun fact: that same banner was also taken down in 2010 when James went to play for the Miami Heat. Currently, the three teams to beat in the East are the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors.

The Lakers string of additions following their agreement to a four-year deal with LeBron James have been curious to say the least. In 2013, he married his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson. It was his stellar play that pushed them back to become the first team in National Basketball Association history in the Finals to overcome a 3-1 series deficit back in 2016.
