Apparently Kawhi Leonard isn't interested in the Celtics scenario

However, Paul George was in the exact same situation past year with his sights set on wearing purple and gold, and that didn't work out in the team's favor this summer.

Meanwhile, back in Cleveland, the city James departed for a second time is moving quickly to say goodbye to James after a departure, having suffered through similar pains when he left the Cavaliers in 2010 for the Miami Heat. Don't feel too bad for Cleveland, though as fans there seem to be supporting the move: Cleveland is the fourth-largest market buying James' new Lakers jersey. The four-time All-Star and three-time National Basketball Association assist leader will follow JaVale McGee, Lance Stephenson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and, of course, James among the Lakers' new recruits.

Players like Kentavous Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee, and Rajon Rondo are all quality pickups.

Will Kawhi Leonard end up being traded or stay in San Antonio for another year?

Switzerland came to life after the goal but Sweden defended stoutly and looked threatening on the counterattack. The teams were goalless after a scrappy first half in St Petersburg .

"But even if we were, you know the Lakers...once you retire, you become all about the organization, and the next player that is in that jersey...the players who come before have a responsibility to help them win more championships". If not, doesn't it make sense to target him in free agency next summer? He played 52 games during his rookie season, averaging 10.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 7.2 assists in 34.2 minutes per game.

It is very likely that Lakers' front office discussed these deals with James and his representatives prior to finalizing them, which means he doesn't have the same concerns that many people outside of the Lakers' organization do. LeBron James is leaving the NBA's Eastern Conference.

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