The NBA was turned on its head when the information got here out that LeBron James agreed to a four-year contract to signal with the Los Angeles Lakers. The transfer instantly lifted the Lakers from promising younger crew, to contender within the ultra-competitive Western Convention.
On the opposite finish, nevertheless, is James’ previous crew, the Cleveland Cavaliers. The cabinet there isn’t utterly naked as Kevin Love has remained an All-Star and now stands to tackle an even bigger load.
Love was not too long ago interviewed by Sports Illustrated and mentioned precisely how he came upon that James had develop into his former teammate, and what message he despatched:
“I used to be truly in Montauk. I used to be within the Hamptons and I used to be sitting subsequent to some actually good buddies, and I simply regarded down at my cellphone and mentioned ‘Oh, Bron simply signed a $154 million contract with the Lakers. I mentioned ‘OK, gotta make a couple of calls.’ So I stepped out and that was that. Texted him later that evening, informed him I liked him, informed him I appreciated him and good luck.”
It’s nice to see gamers being appreciative of one another and their time collectively. James and Love received a championship collectively in 2016 and certainly grew fairly shut throughout their 4 years collectively in Cleveland.
Now James’ consideration has turned to the younger Lakers as he appears to return the franchise to its former glory. With new veterans being introduced in, and the Lakers’ core persevering with to enhance, James should work onerous to convey everybody collectively in hopes of competing for a championship.
Love, however, may have a lot totally different expectations because the Cavaliers look to get better from dropping their biggest participant in franchise historical past.
