Week in Review: Best Instagram Posts from the Last Week

Since the arrival of LeBron James in Los Angeles, there has been an added amount of attention given to the Lakers signings. Some people are referring to the seemingly odd cast of characters as, “the dream meme team.” After signing James, the team also picked up Lance Stephenson, Javale McGee, and Rajon Rondo. This week they added to the unpredictability by signing Michael Beasley.

Stephenson posted a photo of his first workout in Los Angeles Lakers gear.

It had been expected for quite some time, but Dwight Howard officially signed with the Washington Wizards this week. During his press conference, Howard dropped a gem of a quote talking about the different teams that he has played on.

Dwight Howard on signing with the Wizards: “I learned Magic for 8 years. Went to La-La Land. Worked for a while with Rockets. Learned to fly with some Hawks. Got stung by the Hornets. And it all taught me how to be a Wizard." --
