In the 2017-18 season he led the NBA in minutes played for the second consecutive season and notched career highs in rebound average and assist average. He averaged 34 points in the Cavaliers’ 22-game postseason and got to the free-throw line nearly 10 times per game.He has played 10,049 minutes in the playoffs. No other active player is at 8,000 and, of course, young Lakers such as Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball have played zero. He has been destined for supremacy since he was in high school in Akron, Ohio. And yet there never has been a New Kid In Town to eclipse him.“I don’t know when Father Time is going to start to make a difference for him,” said Doc Rivers, the Clippers’ coach, in March.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.But the Kings did not win a Stanley Cup with Gretzky, and the Angels have made one playoff appearance with the aging Pujols, and the Lakers did not get to the NBA Finals or win one with O’Neal until 2000, his fourth season in town. Jubilation, anguish as race for NBA’s Western 8th seed gets as close as ever Leonard and the Spurs are barely speaking these days. The two sides dispute the way Leonard handled his recovery from a quadriceps injury. Leonard played only seven regular-season games and was nowhere on the scene when the Spurs lost their first-round playoff series.The Lakers would like to get Leonard sooner instead of later. They realize they whiffed on George, who was the type of team-carrying player James wants alongside him.But San Antonio has no obligation to deal Leonard and can wait until next February’s trade deadline if it wishes. It also could demand Kuzma and/or Ingram and/or Ball and a host of draft picks from the Lakers.If the Lakers could somehow sign Cousins they wouldn’t have to deplete their lineup and could wait to sign Leonard next summer.These are rather cushy problems, but so are the expectations. The Royal Wedding is all over but the vows. The parade is still unscheduled. VIDEO: Watch Kyle Kuzma’s game winner and what he said about it The Golden State Warriors, winners of three of the past four NBA titles, return largely intact and in their prime. The Boston Celtics reached Game 7 of the Eastern finals last year without All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, both of whom will play in 2018-19.With Cleveland and Miami, James has played in a ridiculously monumental eight consecutive NBA Finals. His teams have won three titles in nine Finals trips. In the two years when he had the least help, 2007 and 2018 with Cleveland, he suffered a Finals sweep.And help is on the way, assuredly. When, and from whom, are the questions, and those questions got trickier last weekend before James committed to Los Angeles.Paul George of Oklahoma City was supposedly ticketed for the Lakers as a free agent but he re-signed with the Thunder on Saturday.Another potential free agent target would be Demarcus Cousins, the lavishly talented center from New Orleans.Two problems, at least, with Cousins: He is recovering from an Achilles tendon rupture and he needs to fit into a maximum-salary shot on the Lakers’ payroll, or else the club would be subject to a punitive luxury tax.There were reports Sunday that the Lakers were going to re-sign guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for $12 million, add Lance Stephenson for $4.5 million and JaVale McGee for $2.4 million. That, according to salary cap experts, would prohibit Cousins from fitting in.Caldwell-Pope would seem to be a spare part for the Lakers, although he shot 39.3 percent from the 3-point line last season and averaged 13.4 points. He cost them $17.7 million last season after he played out his option in Detroit. This made sense after people realized Caldwell-Pope’s agent is Rich Paul, who is also the agent for James.Then there is Kawhi Leonard. He is the San Antonio Spurs’ All-Star who is from Riverside, is known as the best young 94-foot player in the game, and has made it clear he wants to be a Laker after his contract expires in 2019.Related Articles Morning Wrap: Full coverage from Lakers-Clippers thriller; Angels, Dodgers going in different directions; Whicker pays tribute to legendary Mike Gillespie VIDEO: LeBron James and Doc Rivers respond to Donald Trump calling NBA kneeling protests “disgraceful” Lakers on verge of sealing home court advantage, what does it mean in the NBA bubble? The King is coming. The Court will be named later.LeBron James announced his utterly predictable move to the Lakers on Sunday, a four-year, $153.3 million deal that will end the club’s five-year exile from the NBA playoffs and might even bring the Lakers their first league championship since 2010.There is little question that James is an NBA colossus. No perimeter player in basketball history has dared to dream of being that big, quick, visionary, levitational or indestructible.His arrival is the most celebrated of any of the great pro athletes who have come to this area since Edmonton traded Wayne Gretzky to the Kings in 1988. It is more consequential than Albert Pujols’ decision to sign with the Angels after the 2011 season, when the three-time National League MVP had led St. Louis to a World Series championship.

While no player in this year’s game is rated as low as a one (the lowest rated player is a 36), there are a select few who garnered the coveted 99-overall rating. MORE: Best defenses to use in ‘Madden 20’Bobby Wagner, MLB, Seattle SeahawksWagner rounds out the top four players in Madden 20. Seattle’s premier defender sports a 99 awareness rating like the other top four players, and has a well-balanced rating for speed (88), acceleration (89) and agility (85). His tackle (99), pursuit (99) and hit power (98) are also the best among all players featured in the game. It’s an exclusive club to join as players like Barry Sanders (2000), Ray Lewis (2002) and Peyton Manning (2006-11) have all received 99-overall ratings in past versions of the game.This year’s edition features four players rated 99 overall and for the first time since 2016, none of them are quarterbacks. Here’s a brief look at each player.MADDEN 20 REVIEW: The good, the bad and the new from EA SportsAaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles RamsDonald comes in as the top overall player in Madden 20. His strength and awareness are both rated at 99, while his acceleration ratings tops out at 90.His 97 rating in block shedding and 99 rating for power moves will make him a must-have player for any ultimate team.MORE: Best offenses to use in ‘Madden 20’DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston TexansHopkins is this year’s highest-rated wideout as he just barely edged out Antonio Brown (98 overall) for the top spot. The Texans’ top pass-catching target boasts a 92 rating in speed and agility to go along with his 99 rating for awareness. His acceleration speed rounds out at a 93. He also sports a 99 rating in jumping, catching, catching in traffic, spectacular catch and release.Khalil Mack, OLB, Chicago BearsThe Bears’ beast on the defensive line has an awareness rating of 99, much like Donald and Hopkins. However, it’s his quickness that really shines through; Mack’s speed, acceleration and agility ratings are 87, 89 and 88 respectively. All unbelievably high for a player at his position.
