LeBron James Joins the Lakers: Kobe Bryant, Chrissy Teigen, More React

LeBron to Lakers Has LeBron to Lakers Has"Tremendous Momentum" Says Brian Windhorst With These Caveats

By the time he announced, just over $US900 million worth of new deals had been agreed upon, based on figures confirmed to the AP by people involved in the various decisions - nearly all of that money getting committed by teams in the West.

Sunday evening, Klutch Sports Group, LeBron James' sports management agency, released a statement saying that James has signed a 4-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

But this one? This one is ... odd.

Only the Cavaliers, Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers had the salary-cap room to make a run at the four-time league most valuable player.

Eight years ago, LeBron James announced he was taking his talents to South Beach in a television special.

When LeBron is playing for a team other than the Cavs - his four seasons in Miami - FSU football had some of their most successful seasons since the dynasty era of the 1990s.

James' camp and the Cavaliers' front office have maintained a dialogue since the season ended, sources said.

James will make $25.65 million next season.

Italian PM satisfied with 'right direction' at European Union migration summit
All EU leaders agree they must further curb immigration by working with third countries, though that often proves slow. Instead, she said, "bilateral, trilateral and multilateral" deals must be reached to tackle the issue.

Former Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tweeted, "I am sure the Lakernation is rejoicing The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders".

James will now compete directly with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors not only in the Western Conference, but in the Pacific Division.

Over the course of 22 appearances, he averaged 34.0 points, 9.1 rebounds and 9.0 assists and led the Cavaliers to their fourth straight NBA Finals.

Los Angeles will also provide James with a larger platform for his business interests and social activism.

A lot of fans are shocked by the 33-year old's move to Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old is set to enter his 16th season in the National Basketball Association and is a 14-time All-Star. The Cavs became the first team to rally back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals, and they did so against a team that won a league-record 73 games in the regular season.

Embiid posted a message on Twitter that seemed to be directed at No. 23 and what it might be like to walk in the footsteps of Lakers legends like Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Shaquille O'Neal.

With the Sixers though, he has a chance to become the franchise's most adored player since Allen Iverson and Dr J, and deliver the fanbase something that a lot of them have been waiting for their whole lives.
