LeBron James banner removal begins in Cleveland

LeBron James banner removal begins in Cleveland

During four seasons at South Beach, James and co won two championships before the OH native chose to return home to help the Cavaliers win a title.

That would seem to be a problem, because as the National Basketball Association has embraced the small-ball era, James's playmaking abilities have been best complemented by teammates proficient at shooting from beyond the arc.

Over the years, Stephenson also got under James's skin by getting in his face during playoff games, in addition to flopping and, on at least one occasion, making the "choke" sign.

It was rumoured for the last 12 months that James would make the move to the City of Angels but until free agency officially opened on Sunday, it was largely unclear what he was going to do regarding his future.

The 32-year-old Howard, who still has to finalize his buyout with the Brooklyn Nets, infamously played for the Lakers during the 2012-13 season and served as the poster child for their underachieving, dysfunctional team that year.

Kobe Bryant took to Twitter to react to the news and had a special message for King James. "The communication between LeBron and the Lakers is very strong right now and it will continue to be very strong".

Jenkins broke the news of James returning to Cleveland in 2014 and this time, he has reported insider information on the four-time MVP's reasons for moving to the Lakers.

The other features of the smartphone include dual-SIM support, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, microUSB 2.0 and 3.5mm audio jack. Hence, it seems to be a rebranded edition of the Galaxy J6 phone that will be available for buying exclusively online.

In a short statement, he said on Instagram: "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons". Last week, he became a free agent after declining a $35.6 million contract option from the Cleveland Cavaliers for next season, according to ESPN. "This will always be home".

He then opted out of the final two years of his Miami contract and returned to Cleveland.

James led the Cavaliers to a NBA Championship in 2016, when they upset the Warriors and shocked the world after being down 3-1 in the best of seven series.

And he also snubbed what could have been the most money and longest deal available, the Cavaliers being able to extend James a five-year contract worth $209 million.

And while such big names as Chris Paul of Houston and Paul George of Oklahoma City have agreed to terms to stay with their teams, nothing can be signed until Friday - leaving lots of time for players to consider what sort of situation the Lakers with James could offer.

San Antonio Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard remains as one of the hottest commodities on the trade market this offseason.
