Why LeBron James signing with the Lakers in free agency seems like it could really happen this time

Trying to map out why the King would consider taking his talents to a different Southern Beach. The whole time I was in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League, the first question basically any other writer, podcaster, media member or fan would ask me was simple. “So how real is all this LeBron to L.A. stuff?” Anyone who reads my writing or listens to me talk on podcasts is probably aware that I’m naturally skeptical about this stuff. Seemingly every single relevant NBA player has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers over the last several years, with varying levels of credibility to the...

Kyrie Irving says the Cavs are in a “peculiar place” this summer

The Cavs players have noticed how weird this summer has been. This summer has been a weird one for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They came painfully close to landing Paul George, but ended up settling for Jeff Green and Jose Calderon. There’s still a chance for a Carmelo Anthony trade, but the Houston Rockets appear to be the clear front-runner. And the team still hasn’t named a full-time general manager and LeBron James is a free agent in a year. With all these factors, feeling some concern is normal no matter what your affiliation with the team is. We’ve already heard that James is...
