Relief arrived by phone the next day. James announced he was awarding Johnson a four-year contract. And after James provided the Lakers with personal scouting reports on potential housemates — Johnson had said to Spectrum SportsNet that he’d “definitely ask him his opinion because he knows those players better than us” — the most viral casting call in memory commenced. First they signed Rajon Rondo, a point guard who once fastballed a water bottle through a 50-inch television in a film session. Then they signed Lance Stephenson, a guard who established himself as no less than James’ foremost irritant by blowing into his ear canal in the 2014 Eastern Conference finals. Then they signed JaVale McGee, a center so notorious for on-court bloopers that his mother publicly accused Lakers legend and TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal of bullying her son. And then they signed Michael Beasley, a forward who wore a wristwatch on his right ankle while debating, in a televised interview, whether humans use only 10 percent of their brains. “If the Lakers were ‘Family Matters,'” says one Western Conference source, “this would be like adding four f—ing Urkels.”

A player who is not currently in the game is typically assessed a one-game suspension for leaving the immediate vicinity of the bench when an altercation ensues in live action. The two stars will not be reprimanded because the league did not deem the activity of Lakers guard Lance Stephenson and Warriors guard Quinn Cook as being an “altercation,” sources said.
The 2018-19 Lakers feature a number of players on one-year contracts, and the franchise is expected to have two max salary slots available next summer. The organization’s plan is to use this season to evaluate which players can fit long term with James. James will win games this season with his skill set and through sheer will, but most within NBA circles don’t expect much from the Lakers. “My attitude is win every game,” Stephenson, who is on a one-year deal, told Yahoo Sports. “I approach a game like it’s a playoff game. When I’m out there, it may look like I’m joking around, but I’m very serious and having fun and trying to communicate with my team as much as possible.”
