Moves the Lakers Need to Make to Compete With the Warriors

Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James agreed to a four-year deal worth US$154 million on Sunday with the Lakers, just hours after the NBA free agency period began. Howard and Bryant clashed, and the team was swept in the first round of the playoffs before the center went to the Rockets as a free agent after just one year in L.A.

"But even if we were, you know the Lakers...once you retire, you become all about the organization, and the next player that is in that jersey...the players who come before have a responsibility to help them win more championships".

"Lonzo ain't going to play off the ball", LaVar said. That reason alone would be enough to make Johnson and the Lakers intrigued with the possibility of acquiring him.

LaVar Ball has been saying LeBron James should join his son Lonzo Ball on the Lakers since nearly a year ago.

James is also set to see his value increase. It was possible for the Lakers to retain Randle on a one-year deal with an inflated salary, exceeding the $9 million he will be making annually on his two year agreement with the New Orleans Pelicans.

That would seem to be a problem, because as the National Basketball Association has embraced the small-ball era, James's playmaking abilities have been best complemented by teammates proficient at shooting from beyond the arc.

James' decision to move west to the Los Angeles Lakers already looks to have a flurry of affects across the league, whether directly involved with the Lakers or Cavs, or indirectly as a chain-reaction.

The next move is up to the Los Angeles Lakers. He averaged 9.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists a game for IN last season, his first campaign without missing a game. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season.

If the Lakers choose not to acquire another star this offseason, they will have an excellent opportunity next year.
