Nike has already started removing the iconic LeBron James banner in Cleveland

LeBron James is gone from Cleveland, and so, too, is the huge Nike billboard that was erected as a love note to James after he returned to his hometown Cavaliers in 2014. Which means they now have five players from last year's NBA All-Star Game on the same team that won last year's championship, and the one. Reportedly, the Lakers weren't interested in Cousins. For years, James has been able to walk into the Finals with a level of ease, now, in the Western Conference, he must fight to gain that entry. Lillard is one of the best pure scorers in the National Basketball Association, but he is also a more than capable playmaker.

At 27 years old, Lillard is in his prime and still has three more seasons left on his contract. Curry's improved playmaking and shooting make him a solid fit for a Lakers team that is in dire need of more shooters and spacing.

If the Lakers choose not to acquire another star this offseason, they will have an excellent opportunity next year.

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.

It's worth asking because, in the past, those players' relationships with James have ranged from occasional irritants to outright nemeses. In fact, James' Lakers jersey is the only one sold during free agency that's cracked the company's top 10. 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. Just 5 days ago, Yahoo had a report that Leonard had contacted LeBron about 'teaming up.' Now we're to believe that's not true.
