Luke Walton still hasn't spoken with LeBron James

LeBron James is already the biggest star of his generation, and he followed a familiar path to Los Angeles' bright lights when he made a decision to sign with the Lakers as a free agent.

LeBron left to pursue new challenges both on and off the court. The King will be 34 in December and this could very well be the last team he plays for but it won't be the last deal he signs.

But more than perhaps any other working athlete in recent memory, James made that move years ago. The four-time NBA All-Star, who called the Warriors to solicit his services, has career averages of 21.5 points, 11 rebounds per year game in eight seasons, including 25.2 and 12.9 last season with the Pelicans.

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.

Trump repeatedly has called journalists the "enemy of the people". "It's just as important as any other tragedy". More recently, it flew at half-staff after 10 people were killed at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas.

You've heard the snarky comments: When LeBron James is on your team, he's more than just the star player - he's the de facto general manager. On Sunday, July 1, 2018, James announced he would be joining Ball and the Lakers to try and dethrone the Golden State Warriors and grow his own legacy.

So instead of talking about how Lonzo is going to make LeBron better, let's instead realize that Lonzo is just fortunate to be along for this ride with LeBron - assuming he even gets to play.

"LeBron, you came home and delivered the ultimate goal", Gilbert said in a statement. The bad blood between James and Stephenson started during the Eastern Conference finals matchup between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers in 2014. He ventured into post at times with the Cavaliers, especially in the playoffs to take advantage of mismatches, but the physical toll of posting up, as well as the burden of creating offence for this teammates, meant that James couldn't back down every play.

Citing sources familiar with James' thinking, ESPN.com's Zach Lowe reported Thursday he "is not pressuring L.A.to acquire a second star now".

Officials are considering giving all 13 of them a crash course in cave diving so that they can swim through flooded passages. Two Thai navy doctors have offered to bunk with the boys - and a large food supply - for the entire time, Reymenants said.

However, there is no guarantee any of them will join LeBron in the City of Angels next year.

Regardless of what happens during the season, the new look Lakers will surely be full of unique characters.

The best player of his generation might no longer be the best recruiter in the league.
