LeBron to Lakers 'was the ideal decision', says Durant

The Lakers announced the deal Monday.

Between all of the head cases on this Los Angeles Lakers squad, the constant drama that surrounds LeBron James, and of course LaVar Ball, it should be an entertaining season out west.

"I knew but it's the wrong team", Ibrahimovic said.

Beasley thinks the entire discussion is summertime National Basketball Association nonsense.

After James agreed to join the Lakers, president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka added Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and Beasley in free agency.

"Just be myself", Beasley said of what the Lakers want from him. "I thought it was the ideal decision, flawless move, did everything he was supposed to do in Cleveland".

"I think they're all special in their own way", Beasley said.

Although Beasley is often described as having a troubled past - he had a few marijuana-related issues early in his National Basketball Association career - he hasn't had any off-the-court problems in several years. The drop shadows have been returned to the player numbers after an 18-year absence, the large stripes are gone from either side of the jersey, the trim around the collar is now two-coloured instead of single, and the colours of the player numbers have changed.

The No. 2 overall pick in 2008 averaged 13.2 points and 5.6 rebounds while shooting 50.7 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from behind the 3-point arc for the Knicks last season.

"This show is real, it's candid and it's the essence of conversation", James tells The Hollywood Reporter "And we know with social media and text being the way people communicate, the form of conversation, actually talking, is kind of lost art". "I just wanted to make the interview about having fun and playing basketball this year".
