Kawhi Leonard doesn’t want to play with LeBron James

The Lakers Aren't Getting Out of First Round Unless They Get Kawhi Leonard

The Golden State Warriors responded to one of the most seismic moves the National Basketball Association has ever seen on Monday night by reminding the other 29 teams in the league they're only nominally playing the same game.

A lot of people are as upset as Drake on his new album that Cousins signed a stunning one-year deal with the already loaded Golden State Warriors. While the 32-year-old point guard experienced something of a renaissance last season with the Pelicans and meets James' expressed preference for teammates who play with intelligence, he won't have the ball in his hands as much as he would like. I'm going to stress this: "There's no guarantee if Kawhi Leonard hits the market next summer he's going to sign with the Lakers, period", Charania said. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform", team owner Dan Gilbert told James in a statement.

Ball's fans might fear those numbers will dip and his development might stall following Rondo's arrival from the New Orleans Pelicans. For example, Seth Curry agreed to terms on a two-year, $2.75 million contract with the Portland Trail Blazers. There's another team obviously in L.A. 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.

Jorge Sampaoli will leave Argentina job this week
The last goal they conceded before Pepe's equaliser was in a friendly against Austria in November 2017. Pele remains the youngest ever among them, though, at 17 years, 244 days during the 1958 semi-final.

Yet just because the Lakers signed James doesn't mean they'll have an easy road to the NBA Finals. However, there should be concern that at age 33, James will compete against an absurdly deep Western Conference and a Warriors team that seems to be more stacked with talent than ever before. (Reporters) probably don't care about the names, and that's your job is to make good stories and have things to talk about on the air.

If the Lakers are able to acquire Leonard - which they must do given what happened with Paul George - life would be changed. Avery Bradley returned to the Los Angeles Clippers and that team will now have to do something about its glut of guards (though trading Austin Rivers for Marcin Gortat was a start) ... "Lakers with LeBron? You don't give my son the best player in the game and don't think he gonna win no championships".
