Lakers: How to keep Julius Randle and bring in two superstars

Who knows if Los Angeles will be on LeBron James' radar this summer, but if nothing else, the Lakers at least capitalised on their last chance to leave an impression before the end of the season.

Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr., who both started their careers with the Lakers, crossed the court to visit with their former teammates and coaches after the game.

Jokic is coming off his seventh triple-double of the season, totaling 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in 30 minutes against Sacramento. They hope that's attractive to James, who can be a free agent this summer.

"I'm publicly terminating the pandemic of speculation surrounding LeBron James' playing plans past this season", Vecsey wrote in Patreon. Even if he falls short of the max, that would significantly eat into the Lakers ability to sign the two max free agents they have so publicly coveted. As the Cavaliers called timeout while down 115-94, James palmed the ball and motioned as if he wanted to throw it in frustration before cocking back.

The Cavaliers suffered a 127-113 defeat to LA Lakers, but James certainly provided a bit of magic.

While we were busy trying to tune LaVar Ball out, young Lakers have developed into a quality team on the rise.




LeBron James preferred the Cavaliers keep Kyrie Irving last offseason despite his trade request and sources say he was not impressed with how the front office handled its attempt to rework their deal with the Celtics after the severity of Isaiah Thomas' injury became more clear. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the three-point line but they were never really in this game after falling behind by 35-17 points in the first quarter.

Thomas' parting with Cleveland wasn't harmonious, and the 5-foot-9 dynamo took a few portentous looks in the direction of the Cavs' bench - but he claimed he was only talking smack to Floyd Mayweather, his good friend sitting next to Jack Nicholson.

Thomas said afterward that he had nothing to prove and that this was not a revenge game for him. Something I knew I could do.

"He was only there for 15 games, but it was good to see him try to kill them", Kuzma said.
