The best memes about LeBron James leaving Cleveland for Los Angeles

Lakers brass headed by former NBA champion Magic Johnson will try to convince NBA superstar Le Bron James to sign with Los Angeles now that he has become a free agent

The announcement came on the first day of free agency.

ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski said the Philadelphia 76ers will meet with LeBron James' representatives. James might end up being the only top free agent to sign in Los Angeles this summer (no offense, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee) but next summer should be a big one for Magic Johnson and Co., too.

He played in all 82 games for the first time in his 15-year career in 2017-18 and becomes the first player in National Basketball Association history to lead the post-season in scoring and switch teams during the off-season.

LeBron James is to join the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-year $154 million deal, his agents said on Sunday, ending months of frenzied speculation about the National Basketball Association superstar's next career move.

There was a flurry of big-name signings in the first hours of free agency, but James remained noncommittal.

Paulinho and Thiago Silva scored a goal each to give the five-time champions a victory over Serbia and first place in their group. I'm very pleased with all of this. "We don't need to look at who's not there, we need to look at who will be able to play".

Within three hours of going on sale, James' Lakers jersey - which goes for about $220 - saw a 600 percent jump compared to when he returned to Cleveland for the second time in July 2014. This is the longest contract LeBron has signed since his six-year deal with the Heat in 2010, though the final two years of that contract were player options.

Bosh hasn't played since the 2015-16 season because of blood clots, so there's no telling whether he'd even be cleared to return. James flew from the Caribbean island of Anguilla and landed in Van Nuys just after 11 a.m. PT. The Lakers will have room under the salary cap to sign another max salary player next year. But perhaps James took note of how the Warriors built one of the most dominant teams ever and realized his best chance at sustained championship contention down the line is to let the Lakers build more organically.

Another factor pundits considered behind James' move west was the opportunity to link up with a young roster, including 2017's number-two draft pick Lonzo Ball and Germany's Isaac Bonga, which could ensure he wouldn't have to carry the team like he did in Cleveland.

But perhaps the most shocking part of it all, is that James joined the Western Conference.
