The most plausible explanation is that the brand is trolling LeBron James, the National Basketball Association, and its fans by concocting a wild story about a $50,000 fine and getting a little extra attention in the process. Don't be surprised if the Pelicans are not as good come playoff time.

And unlike eight years ago when he ripped James for leaving, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert thanked him. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform. At least he didn't wait until the end like last time".

Unfortunately for Embiid, throughout James' free-agency journey, it was apparent that chasing a title this year was not a top priority.

He is the best player in the world at the moment.

James gave Cleveland something to remember in his final season.

A transcription of his Lakers and Warriors-related answers is below.


Dwyane Wade (L), LeBron James (C) and Chris Bosh (R) of the Miami Heat celebrate winning Game 7 of the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena June 20, 2013 in Miami, Florida.

Magic Johnson, the Los Angeles Lakers president, purchased a gift for all of his Hollywood friends this week when LeBron James verbally agreed to sign a four-year contract with the franchise. However, it is a bit disappointing that the Lakers followed up this momentous occasion by adding players that don't maximize LeBron's chances of competing for a championship this upcoming season.

Since the beginning of the year, LaVar Ball has been that one person who has been saying that LeBron James would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and join the Los Angeles Lakers and play alongside his son. Unfortunately, that wasn't the only power move as the defending dynasty the Golden State Warriors also strengthen their numbers.

King James is set to dominate the West Coast after securing a four-year deal with the Lakers worth $154M. Rumors that James coveted joining the Lakers had been swirling around the league for quite a while. In this picture, Ball #2 of the Los Angeles Lakers shakes hands with James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers after the game at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on December 14, 2017.

Players can not sign contracts with teams until Friday under National Basketball Association free agency rules.
