Dwight Howard Reportedly Wants to Join LeBron on the Lakers

LeBron James informed the Cavaliers on Friday that he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option LeBron James informed the Cavaliers on Friday that he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option

The contact also suggests James does not necessarily expect Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson to land him another big star immediately, something many believed the team had to do to lure the league's best all-around player to the west coast.

Even as the LeBron James version of the Los Angeles Lakers begins to assemble, an iconic 10-story banner of James is about to be removed from a Cleveland building.

The unnamed fan, who's going viral, reportedly didn't suffer any serious injuries, except for the preexisting one: a star breaking his heart.

That mission was accomplished when the Cavaliers won the 2016 crown with James in the starring role as Cleveland celebrated a sports champion for the first time in 52 years.

This one fan seems to have acted alone, although supervision clearly was necessary.

Although Cousins is expected to miss the first few months of next season while recovering from his Achilles injury, the Cousins signing probably ends the possibility of the Warriors taking a flyer on Howard. Of course, the pair's many postseason runs have included numerous showdowns as opponents of James when he played for the Cavs and Heat, including the unforgettable moment in the 2014 Eastern Conference finals when Stephenson blew in a certain someone's ear.


But it's the mystique of the LeBron James brand that's suddenly skyrocketed L.A. ticket demand in the wake of King James' move to the West Coast.

The move by the Nets was purely a contract dump, as Mozgov has a four-year, $64 million contract that he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Los Angeles ranked as the top sales market for James jerseys. "This will always be home", James posted on Instagram with a photo of the Cavaliers' championship parade.

Durant recently signed a two-year deal with the option to opt out next summer. Paul George reportedly made it known previous year that he planned on joining the Lakers this summer, so the Indiana Pacers traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

After years of struggling, the Lakers now have the best player in the world to lead their impressive young core.
