LeBron James is apparently pretty excited about the Los Angeles Lakers' young players, which should not be too surprising. We'd been going through so many scenarios, also meeting with Jeanie, talking about what we thought would be important.
As it turns out, the deal between the two sides might have been made much sooner than that, as Johnson was at James' house right at the start of free agency to sell him on coming to the Lakers. The 33-year-old is a franchise-changing talent who has shown that he can lead a franchise to a tremendous amount of success as the driving force.
George shocked the Lakers when he decided against following James, instead extending his stay in Oklahoma City on a four-year, $137m contract. Shortly after that sitdown in Los Angeles ended, James announced his intention to.
James' teams have advanced to the NBA Finals in eight consecutive seasons, including last month when he and the Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors for the third time in four seasons.More news: Real Madrid shirt is special - Eden Hazard

Some fans even went as far as to say that Rob Lowe crashed the signing photo, and that Lowe is, in fact, the real general manager of the Lakers, not Pelinka.
"When LeBron James - a continuing MVP and National Basketball Association champion, who is playing at the highest levels of his career - chooses to join the Lakers, that represents the most important confirmation of what we are building here".
And we, happily, all know how that turned out. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".
A news conference with Pelinka has been scheduled for Wednesday in El Segundo. Over the course of his 10-year career, McGee has averaged 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks.
