Chinatown Market took to Instagram this week to claim it had been fined by the National Basketball Association for a previous post relating to LeBron James signing for the Los Angeles Lakers.

LeBron James' decision to join the Los Angeles Lakers has affected basketball players and athletes alike. The defending champs used their mid-level exception to sign DeMarcus Cousins to a deal that rocked the NBA Monday night.

If there's one thing that we've learned this offseason, it's that Magic Johnson can get things done. However, Cousins revealed in an interview with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated that he didn't receive any offer as an unrestricted free agent so he and his longtime agent Jarinn Akana chose to call a number of teams, including the Warriors.

"I don't know what Kevin Durant's response was but I can tell that behind the scenes Kevin Durant was like 'Why would I do that?'" said Smith. It was very insulting to not receive an offer. After four years back in Cleveland, however, James wanted a change of scenery and chose to test out the free agency market.

Johnson pitched James a team stocked with tough-minded playmakers like Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo, which could free up James to finish in the lanes and from the post.

While Rondo has demonstrated that he can still contribute, especially as a passer, his defense and shooting are still severe limitations in his game.

Last season, when rumors LeBron might opt out of the final year of his deal with Cleveland began circulating, the Lakers were immediately installed as favorites to land him. "Even we don't want to see them sink that low".
