Cleveland Browns players weigh in on LeBron James' departure to Lakers

Cleveland Browns players weigh in on LeBron James' departure to Lakers

The Cavs will not be going to their fifth consecutive Finals next year, and they probably won't make the playoffs. Currently, the rule serves as a way to force players to either complete one year of college basketball in the U.S., or travel overseas to play in an worldwide pro league for one season.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family, understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age", James said last month. Will anyone else join him? The latter two have partial guarantees on their contracts that season. IN traded George to Oklahoma City shortly after he made his intentions known to the organization last June.

"I have no idea at this point", he told reporters. The big man didn't play in the game after rupturing his Achilles, and the injury will limit the kind of contract he'll be offered.

Los Angeles also provides James with a larger platform for his business interests and social activism.

The Warriors are still the clear-cut favorite to win their fourth title in five years.

LeBron's reported deal with the Lakers, a US$154 million whopper, covers a period of four years, which will bring LeBron up to 2022 when he will be 37-years-old. Lance Stephenson is coming to Los Angeles for $4.5 million, according to reports.

LeBron James free agency tracker
Despite the worst year of his career, Melo is still one of the best scorers the National Basketball Association has ever seen. After acquiring Carmelo Anthony in September, the Thunder appeared to have formed a superteam with the then-reigning MVP.

If fans bought a Cavaliers LeBron jersey in the last 90 days, Fanatics has a Jersey Assurance program that enables consumers to exchange, free of charge, a James Cavaliers jersey for either a James Lakers jersey or a new jersey of a player on the Cavaliers. The Sixers have shown a willingness to trade for Leonard without a promise that he'd re-sign with them in 2019, when he'd be able to opt out of his contract.

There are other reasons suggested for LeBron's move across the country though. It's just a matter of whether or not the Lakers are willing to match the Spurs' asking price.

Cleveland's success also ended the city's 52-year wait for a major sporting title.

The Lakers had a busy first day of free agency. With PG13 staying in OKC, the only hopes for LeBron to sniff a ring is if the Lakers trade for Kawhi Leonard.

Following James' announcement that he'll be joining the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night, some fans began flocking to the billboard to take pictures with it before its inevitable removal.

The Lakers' salary cap situation gets dicey from here.
