LeBron James has changed teams, leaving hometown franchise Cleveland Cavaliers for the sunnier climes that life as a Los Angeles Laker will bring. That move alone is enough to make this past NBA off-season one of the most historic in recent memory. But besides one of the greatest, if not the very best, players to ever play basketball switching jerseys, that isn't the only notable move this summer. Here, Sportsmail rounds up the 10 biggest deals from the NBA offseason.

Michelle R. Martinelli Published 1:05 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 Danica Patrick hosted the 2018 ESPYS on Wednesday night in Los Angeles, opening the show with a seven-minute monologue that received mixed reviews from the internet. She nailed several jokes, but her comedic timing was a little off on others and led to a few awkward moments. And it probably didn't help that the audience didn't seem settled in their seats and fully into the routine. Prior to the show, Patrick told For The Win she prepped by practicing her monologue to ensure the jokes were delivered in her voice. She took plenty of shots at other athletes - including LeBron James, Tiger Woods and the U.S. men's soccer team - and said that when she was often the target of jokes, she took it as a compliment because she was "important enough" to be thought of. "I loved the creative process and coming up with ideas and jokes and putting in my two cents there, along with the help of a dozen highly qualified writers," Patrick … [Read more...] about 12 of Danica Patrick’s best, worst jokes from 2018 ESPYS monologue
Martin Rogers USA TODAY Published 10:45 p.m. UTC Jul 15, 2018 MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin tried to use the World Cup, Pussy Riot tried to interrupt it and 31 other teams did all they could to win it, but it was France that owned soccer’s finest tournament and it wasn’t even close. Sunday’s 4-2 final victory over a mightily courageous, yet ultimately exhausted Croatia, wrapped up a month of as much dominance as modern soccer will allow. The game in its current form is an equalizer, and traditional powers are seeing their buffer zone above the rest drastically reduced. Yet amid all that France sometimes cruised, sometimes crushed, and never fretted its way to the second World Cup title in its history, with the minimum of fuss and maximum of excellence. This wasn’t a plucky underdog upsetting the odds or a troubled giant overcoming its demons and prevailing regardless. This was the Golden State Warriors version of securing a championship. By … [Read more...] about France was clearly the World Cup’s best team. Why couldn’t we see that all along?
LeBron James signed his new four-year NBA contract worth $154 million with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday, with Lakers president Earvin "Magic" Johnson calling it a "huge step" for the team. The Klutch Sports Group, agents for James, tweeted a photo of the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player on Monday night with "officially signed with the Lakers" as the caption. The agents revealed July 1, hours after the start of free agency, that James had agreed to terms on the Lakers deal, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers after four seasons in which he led them to four NBA Finals. James brought Cleveland its first major sports crown since 1964 when the Cavs won the 2016 NBA crown but lost three of four finals showdowns with the Golden State Warriors, falling to 3-6 for his career in the NBA Finals, and decided to make a move in hopes of rebuilding the Lakers into a winner. The Lakers tweeted an image of James wearing the team's purple and gold jersey with his name and number, 23, on the back and … [Read more...] about LeBron signs Lakers NBA deal for four years at $154 million
By Ben Cohen Ben Cohen The Wall Street Journal BiographyBen Cohen @bzcohen Google+ [email protected] July 3, 2018 7:58 a.m. ET 84 COMMENTS Remember when the Los Angeles Lakers signed LeBron James? That was adorable. The Golden State Warriors responded to one of the most seismic moves the NBA has ever seen on Monday night by reminding the other 29 teams in the league they’re only nominally playing the same game. They pulled off the surprise of the summer: a one-year, $5.3 million bargain deal with free agent DeMarcus Cousins. 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 the year before that, and probably next year’s, too. Now it’s worth asking the question that echoed around the league as demoralized teams began to reckon with the depressing reality that the Warriors, who are coming off what is statistically the best four-year stretch in the history … [Read more...] about The Golden State Warriors Have Broken the NBA
