Celebrities welcome LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers

Lonzo Ball Le Bron James Lakers LeBron James to join Los Angeles Lakers in $154m deal

ESPN's top insider Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed the 4-year, $154 million signing on Twitter.

Other than that, it's been a weird collection of moves that was capped off on Monday evening by, essentially, swapping out Julius Randle - the most consistent, if not the best, player on last year's team, with averages of 16.1 points and 8.0 rebounds - for capricious point guard Rajon Rondo, who has wanted to be a Laker going back to 2015, before LA drafted D'Angelo Russell with the No. 2 pick.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family, understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age", James announced after the Cavaliers' June 8 loss.

King James will wear number 23 when he dons the purple and gold this fall.

James is considered a rival of retired Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan for the title of greatest player in National Basketball Association history.

After he announced he would leave the Cavaliers and join Miami in 2010, the sign was taken down and then replaced when he rejoined Cleveland before the 2014-15 season.

After the Cavaliers lost the series last month in just four games, James would not be drawn on his future. With James, the Lakers are now instantly a contender in the Western Conference, as they are getting the best player in the league. While many assumed that Paul George was going to be coming to Los Angeles, he ended up staying with the Oklahoma City Thunder. As Jenkins noted, James has never played for a team owner or president he can relate to as much as Johnson, both on the court and off of it. Johnson's influence may have been a huge part in the Lakers landing James.

The Cavaliers also tried to keep James, reportedly being on the phone with him seconds after midnight Sunday as the free agency period opened.

That got Sixers center Joel Embiid to thinking about James potentially reversing course on his Hollywood story.

Now that the Golden State Warriors acquired DeMarcus Cousins, the Lakers have more reason to add Leonard to their team.
