Blockbuster move: LeBron James signs with the Los Angeles Lakers

10 thoughts on Le Bron James committing to the Lakers LeBron James to join Los Angeles Lakers in $154m deal

It appears some Clevelanders will be drowning their sorrows over LeBron James leaving while wearing his new Los Angeles Lakers No. 23 jersey.

In the first three hours of sales, there was a 600 percent spike compared to how his new Cavaliers jersey sold on the site on the day when he returned to Cleveland from Miami in July 2014.

The addition of James is expected to be a franchise-altering move for the Lakers, who won just 35 games last season and have missed the National Basketball Association playoffs in each of the past five years.

But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since.

The relationship between the Spurs and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP has soured beyond fix and, after months of speculation, the 27-year-old has indicated he wants out of San Antonio.

Some fans stunned at LeBron James' massive deal with Lakers
And while he has always been compared to Michael Jordan, Johnson is the one whose game more closely resembles his own. The 33-year-old James is coming off a season in which he averaged 27.5 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers .

I think everyone has a soft spot for their last 16 opponents Mexico and not just because their fans have brightened up the event. He said: "At that time, Spanish teams were favourites but, to use a Russian expression, "anyone can be God if he tries to".

What both Rondo and Stephenson do bring to the table is defensive tenacity, as well as playoff experience, a valuable commodity given the youthfulness of the Lakers and James's annual designs on trips to the NBA Finals.

James' path to the NBA Finals in the Western Conference just got even more hard, though, and players can't officially sign contracts until Friday.

Before Sunday's announcement regarding James, George had agreed to a multi-year contract with the Thunder and the likelihood of the Lakers landing Leonard in a trade from the Spurs appeared to be dwindling. Here are five reasons to love the Lakers signing James. Paul George reportedly made it known previous year that he planned on joining the Lakers this summer, so the Indiana Pacers traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With the Lakers signing LeBron James, there are certainly a lot of things to take in for what his impact on the franchise will be.

James is the co-founder of Los Angeles-based production company SpringHill Entertainment, which has developed more than a dozen TV series and films including Starz drama "Survivor's Remorse" and NBC game show "The Wall".
