Two more guaranteed years of LeBron James?
Two more guaranteed years of embarrassing Laker’s mediocrity.

An organization needing a massive rebuild just signed up for a flashy rerun. A franchise lacking in youth and depth just tied its fortunes to a guy who will play his final guaranteed season at age 39,” … A team that needs to build for the future remains stuck in the past, forgoing substance for sizzle, clinging to an aging star even as the sky is falling around them.
