he has a billion dollar nike deal. exposure isnt an issue for him.

this move only makes sense if its been a lifelong dream to play for the lakers (as im sure many have) or he just wants to be on the beach and miami wasnt wanting him back.

if he was after winning, boston, philly, anywhere in the east makes the most sense. look at last year. they ran through a majority of the east with ease and got destroyed in the finals. The west has 3-4 teams now that would probably win a 7 game finals series.

I give him credit for coming to the West. There is now a lot of pressure on him to make the finals.

That being said, I really hope David Stern comes out of retirement and finds a way to overturn this.

The beach is MUCH better this time of year in LA.
I guess its the allure of being a "laker" that had him go to LA.

Since I started this thread I'm happy to be the one to derail it. According to Mental Health America, California and Ohio get about the same ranking in terms of mental health for adults (Ohio Ranked 20th and California 24th). The Youth ranking favored California (15th best) over Ohio (24th best). Interestingly, Missouri was ranked worse than both California and Ohio. So if are concerned for LeBron's kids and mental health is your reasoning, then they are better off in California than in Ohio, and certainly better off than if they moved to Missouri. Of course Missouri is not a consideration since you have no NBA team anyway.

Yours truly, a born and raised Californian who loves living here


BTW, here's the mental health ranking by state link if you are interested in confusing yourself with the facts:

http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/issues/ranking-states
I'm Military; therefore, my mental health is already in question. However, those statistics and facts do nothing to take away from the fact that California is plagued with left wing radicals hell bent on domestic terrorism. Hell, most don't even know what gender they are day-to-day. James' new name in California...Laquanda James...for when he's feeling feminine.

Thankfully I move to Germany in 9 days.

That's why we are all moving to Missouri, land of the renowned superior mental health specimens and great NBA Basketball teams.
The military moved me here. But hey, you're more than welcome to come.

doesn't this belong in the politics section of the off-topic forum? What does this have to do with sports or Lebron being a Laker?

Probably. I just can't stand the West.

I feel bad for Walton. Coming from Warriors staff, it seems that he is tryn the same team spirit formula with the Lakers. LBJ will not play into this model, he is a 1 man team, and will drive Walton crazy. I never liked the Lakers, so this move makes my position alot easier.

The Lakers have the same odds (7-2) to win the 2019 NBA Championship as the Celtics. The Rockets 7-1 and the Warriors 10-11. Talk about moving into contention real quick.

Will be fun to see him play our Warriors at home a few more times a year. We still own the West regardless.

So what you're saying is that you've never seen him play before, or understand how he plays the game

Fixed that for you. Figured I'd behave like a douche from the West. It's obvious we're better than you and everyone else. Send us all your immigrants!
Thanks man!

Now, back to Bron-Bron.

You beat me to that! Will they get the Rondo that does well in the playoffs sometimes, or the Rondo that the Mavs had to quit on them for the playoffs.
FYI
I would never want rondo on my team.

I was thinking the same thing. All the individual talent in the world (and he has that) won't beat great players who are coached well and play as a team. I don't see that happening for the Lakers. It will be entertaining, but in the end of the day I don't see them winning the Championship. Warriors, Spurs, and the Rockets will have something to say about that. It would be great to see the Cavs win the championship in 2019. Think about it.

On a positive note, the LaVar Ball show is now over in L.A. I'm pretty sure LeBron will stuff that noicemaker.

The ultimate non-teammate with a serious injury...albeit very talented. Achilles tear for a large person difficult to overcome in a running and jumping sport.
He should be getting back to 80% sometime next June.
Lakers should have Leonard on their team before then, whom is preferable.
