Since the news broke on Sunday, July 1, the National Basketball Association has been in the news constantly as free agents sign new contracts. James deciding to leave the Cavaliers, again, left fans wondering what will be left of the city.

LeBron James' decision to take a $154 million, four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers and leave behind his hometown team of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been a boost for Fanatics. LeBron has been the No. 1 victim of Stephenson's antics, and the most memorable thing he did was when he blew into James' ear.

However, some health officials say more research should be done before you change your coffee routine. There have been however some studies that show that regular coffee intake may not be good for health.

You've heard the snarky comments: When LeBron James is on your team, he's more than just the star player - he's the de facto general manager. Walton, after all, has been on the hot seat after a lackluster last two seasons - compiling a 61-103 record during that time. As it stands, Lonzo Ball is arguably a more competent lead guard as he is bigger, a better defender (by far), a gifted passer and, while he is an inconsistent shooter, he normally draws more defensive pressure from distance than Rondo. You may recall that when LeBron returned to Cleveland after garnering a pair of National Basketball Association titles during his four years in Miami that the Cavaliers were coming off a 33-49 record and had not whiffed the postseason since James' departure. Offensively, we have never seen LeBron James play so efficiently and one could argue that the last season ( his 15th ) was his best since he was drafted #1 overall by Cleveland back in 2003. Leonard only has one year left on his current deal, but the Spurs aren't about to let that get in the way of them wanting as much as possible in return. The Lakers are in remarkably similar circumstances after their 35-47 campaign a year ago but with up-and-comers like Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram there is a foundation on which to build. With their on-court history, it is easy to understand why fans can't imagine them playing together in one team.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Montreal's emergency services said they have received more than 1,200 heat-related calls a day, which represents 30% more than their busiest days.

That process could still reportedly include the addition of Kawhi Leonard this year via a trade or next offseason when he becomes a free agent. You've got LeBron here now.

Since pulling off the major coup of adding the best player in the world to their ranks, the Lakers have been hard at work constructing a solid roster around James.
