As Lakers fans continue to express excitement following Sunday's news that James intends to sign with their team, business in downtown L.A. are also looking forward to the 14-time All-Star's arrival.
The Celtics have popped up in a variety of trade rumors this offseason, particularly in connection with Leonard, after the two-time Defensive Player of the Year reportedly requested a trade.
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.

It's not the silver lining Costa Ricans were hoping for when their 2018 National Team, full of veterans of La Sele's extraordinary run at the 2014 World Cup, headed to Russian Federation .
"Are we invisible?" Jose Ramirez, the Indians' third baseman, asked NBC Sports, which dared suggest the same thing about the Browns, a team that is loaded with young talent but has won only four games in the last three seasons. After four years back in Cleveland, however, James wanted a change of scenery and made a decision to test out the free agency market. As now constructed, the Lakers are nowhere near championship contention, even with James. Randle will immediately become an unrestricted free agent.
Additionally, with Kawhi Leonard potentially available in trade discussions during the upcoming season, it benefits the Lakers to showcase Ball as much as possible and increase his potential value in trade discussions.
The 33-year-old has signed a four-year, £116m ($153m) deal with the Lakers. He has made it clear that the first year is not the only reason he signed with the team. They still ain't gonna win with this team right here-the Lakers with LeBron! He took the team to the Finals last year, and would expect to be playing in June for the ninth year in a row.
On one hand, the Lakers have LeBron James, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo, and Lance Stephenson. Besides shedding his Cleveland Cavaliers jersey, ESPN's Brian Windhorst believes that James will be adapting a new style of play with those teammates. Cedi Osman came over from Turkey, Ante Zizic and Rodney Hood were acquired through trade, and Collin Sexton was selected eighth overall in this past draft.
