Kevin Durant: LeBron James to the Lakers a 'Perfect Move'

Kevin Durant: LeBron James to the Lakers a 'Perfect Move'

Michael Beasley thinks the basketball world is foolish to assume the Los Angeles Lakers' revamped locker room will be combustible before the fuse is even lit.

Via a since-deleted Tweet from the official Modell's sporting good store account, we can see the new, yet-to-be-released gold LeBron James #23 Los Angeles Lakers jersey is already on the shelves available to anyone who chooses to come in and buy one. The players who followed have given the Lakers a couple nicknames: "Suicide Squad" and "The Meme Team".

Windy also offered up that he doesn't think the team, as is, looks like a roster that is ready to win in the playoffs.

Heading into his 11th National Basketball Association season with his seventh franchise, Beasley knows something about locker room chemistry and the importance of professionalism.

The Lakers signed the 29-year-old forward to a one-year, $3.3-million deal on Monday after agreeing to the deal on Friday.

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. "It's the total opposite". The four players have been known for wild and surreal moments on the basketball court in addition to having some of the most colorful personalities in a league that isn't short of personality. Right on cue, E1T1 became embroiled in a tight game that required all of Zaire's big shots and a little luck at the buzzer to bull out.

At least 50 people dead in Greece following wildfires
The death toll jumped Tuesday morning after the Red Cross discovered 26 bodies on the lawn of a seaside villa in Mati. Some of the survivors spent fraught hours choking on clouds of ash at the edge of the water as they waited for help.

"I mean, 'Showtime.' That's Magic, you know?"

Beasley said the team had been talking with his agent for weeks. So the chance to play for him, it's surreal.

"I was trying to keep my emotions professional", Beasley said.

Johnson provided Beasley with a detailed description of his likely role with the Lakers. I think this is the ideal next step for him, and he's kinda breaking down the barriers of what an National Basketball Association superstar is supposed to be.

The Lakers wanted to add veteran toughness, playoff experience, defense, basketball IQ and multiple offensive weapons to attack a defense this offseason, and they've certainly done this.
