How LeBron James move affects LA Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers

LA Lakers have been given an over/under of 48.5 wins, despite only managing 35 wins last season. So the huge increase is all down to The King coming to LA, with LeBron James expected to significantly boost their win rate.

Life without James for Cleveland Cavaliers is not expected to be nearly as successful. Last year they achieved 50 wins but the odds this season have them down for 30.5 wins. So the departure of LeBron is anticipated to hit them very hard.
