LeBron Will Wear #23 For Lakers; Jersey Pre-Orders, Ticket Prices Skyrocket

Celebrities welcome LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers

Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James agreed to a four-year deal worth $154 million Sunday with the Lakers, just hours after the NBA free agency period began. They still have to get through the Western Conference - particularly the Golden State Warriors, who just added DeMarcus Cousins to its roster on Monday.

The Lakers have been touted as his preferred destination, meaning other teams run the risk of taking him on a one-year loan before Leonard can leave as a free agent in 2019.

Love has two years and $50 million left on his contract, but the Vardon piece makes the point that they are not interested in trading him at this point.

Preorders for new Lakers LeBron James jerseys were robust enough on Sunday night to give retailer Fanatics one of its top 10 sales days in terms of National Basketball Association gear sold, a spokesman for the company told ESPN.

Los Angeles could consider trying to acquire Damian Lillard from the Portland Trail Blazers.

Croatia top group after last minute winner against Iceland
But Iceland got one back on a penalty kick in the 76th minute, as Croatia conceded for the first time in Russian Federation 2018. The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar.

The San Antonio Spurs made it clear to any trade suitor this offseason that they are not in the mode of rebuilding and plan on staying competitive when Kawhi Leonard eventually departs from the team.

Caldwell-Pope, 25, played four seasons for Detroit before joining the Lakers last season, when he averaged 13.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals a game. Evans offers the same sort of skill set as Stephenson but at a higher level and without the on-court antics.

But there's absolutely no reason to believe Magic Johnson and Co. are going to mortgage their future for an opportunity to contend this coming season.

And once again, he guaranteed multiple championships for the Lakers. (The Lakers already sold the sixth-most jerseys in the league last season without an established star like James.) The cherry on top is that James signed a four-year deal-assurance for some fans who might not want to spend on a jersey that could be irrelevant a year from now.

Again, we can not underestimate how significant it is that LeBron James is now a Laker.
