What Celtics fan Sonny Angara thinks of LeBron's move to Lakers

What Celtics fan Sonny Angara thinks of LeBron's move to Lakers

Chinatown Market took to Instagram this week to claim it had been fined by the National Basketball Association for a previous post relating to LeBron James signing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

James made a decision to sign a three-plus-one contract with the Lakers, which signals his long-term commitment and faith.

Additionally, with Kawhi Leonard potentially available in trade discussions during the upcoming season, it benefits the Lakers to showcase Ball as much as possible and increase his potential value in trade discussions. Similarly, given Los Angeles could clear enough cap space for two max contracts, the suggestion at least another All-Star would join LeBron in California was nearly taken for granted.

Given Ball's eagerness to get into high-profile feuds, it's probably worth noting that he named three Lakers but omitted Kobe Bryant, who is considered by numerous team's fans as the greatest player in its storied history.

Now, the outspoken father of Lakers guard Lonzo Ball predicts James will help Los Angeles win at least two championships, although he is hoping for four. The same can be said about McGee, Caldwell-Pope and Stephenson's respective contracts but it does seem as though the Lakers paid a premium on players that other teams weren't bending over backward to sign.

"I know some people are rolling their eyes, but I like what the Lakers have done", a rival Western Conference executive said.

"The 3rd Splash Brother", tweeted Stephen Curry, Cousins' new Golden State teammate.

LeBron James' latest team is the Los Angeles Lakers, which gives it an edge that will be crucial in deciding how the Lakers fanbase rejoices in the coming games.

Based on ESPN's report, James has bought into Johnson's plan to use him more off the ball as he progresses through the later stages of his career. Many NBA fans might remember the iconic highlight of Stephenson blowing into James' ear during the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals. The contrast to when LeBron and Dwyane Wade worked in tandem to convince Chris Bosh and Ray Allen to join them in Miami, or to when LeBron lured Kevin Love from Minnesota to Cleveland, is striking.

But even beyond the top-level stars, this is a deep free-agent class.
