The iconic LeBron James banner in Cleveland is coming down

At 33 years old, by the time James' contract ends with LA, it is likely he will be past his prime.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, it's incredibly unlikely that Cleveland would have been able to add enough talent to beat the Warriors, and no matter what they did, James could very well have left after the season. LaVar on people who say the Warriors are going to easily win another title next year, especially since they signed Cousins: "The Warriors can sign Boogie, Prince, Michael Jordan, anybody they want". 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.

However, according to Yahoo NBA insider Shams Charania, the presence of LeBron James may actually hinder the Lakers' chances of landing Leonard. Los Angeles's has also reportedly been submitting low-ball offers, because Leonard is a free agent next off-season and could sign with the Lakers anyway.

The veteran point guard expects to compete for a job as the Los Angeles Lakers starting point guard, USA TODAY's Sam Amick reported Monday night, citing a person with knowledge of the situation. Whether that be the Lakers (LeBron) or the Celtics (Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, Terry Rozier, etc.), Leonard might want to avoid the label that comes with joining a ready-made contender.

"However, when Magic spoke to James late Saturday, he assured them this was a long term play and his decision wouldn't be affected by a transaction they could make under a time pressure". Lonzo will be pushing and he get it out of his hands too quick. If Rondo outplays Ball in any significant manner, it may deflate Ball's value on the market and make it more hard to swing a deal for Leonard.

Rajon Rondo, who helped the Boston Celtics win an National Basketball Association title in 2008, reportedly joined LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday as a revamped lineup begins to take shape.
