James led the Cavaliers to the Finals for the fourth successive year, but despite a superhuman personal performance - in which he averaged 34 points, eight rebounds, ten assists. a block and a steal - the Cavs were easily beaten in four games.

The Lakers were already viewed as a heavy contender to sign James this offseason, and according to Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins, James and his agent and advisors had been speaking at length about his options.

The purple and gold still have a relatively young roster with the likes of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma in their ranks but the pressure will now be on them to perform.

Leonard, of course, could inspire the Lakers to alter their plans altogether.

For the Lakers, this has been the Summer of odd, the Offseason of Oddity.

Considering that the Lakers have struggled to add stars in free agency recently, this is great news for the team moving forward. Those subsequent moves raise one important question: LeBron is aware the Lakers did that, right? After one year with the Thunder, George liked the organization enough to re-sign there on a four-year deal instead of joining the Lakers.

But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since. Joel Embiid has made it no secret that he'd love LeBron James to link up with himself and Ben Simmons in Philly next season.

Within three hours of going on sale, James' Lakers jersey - which goes for about $220 - saw a 600 percent jump compared to when he returned to Cleveland for the second time in July 2014.

Here is why and how Kevin Love can become a Chicago Bull. They are also not willing to give up three first-round picks, knowing that they could acquire Kawhi Leonard next summer.

Before signing with the Lakers, James was also linked to the Philadelphia 76ers and the Houston Rockets.

At the moment, there's a good chance we won't see LeBron James in the Finals this year.

The 32-year-old Howard, who still has to finalize his buyout with the Brooklyn Nets, infamously played for the Lakers during the 2012-13 season and served as the poster child for their underachieving, dysfunctional team that year.
