LeBron Will Wear #23 For Lakers; Jersey Pre-Orders, Ticket Prices Skyrocket

LeBron Will Wear #23 For Lakers; Jersey Pre-Orders, Ticket Prices Skyrocket

All of the buzz from the previous year that LeBron James would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers became a reality Sunday night, July 1.

Unlike his two previous forays in free agency, James did not drag out his decision and made the announcement less than 24 hours after National Basketball Association free agency opened.

James' move to the Western Conference will end his dominance of the Eastern Conference: Whether Miami or Cleveland, James' teams have represented the East in the NBA Finals for eight consecutive seasons.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons", said James on his Instagram account. "This will always be home".

James has signed a four-year deal with the Lakers worth a staggering $154m. After two championship seasons in Oakland, McGee posted on Twitter, "Thank you Dub Nation for two unbelievable years". Leonard has been at odds with the Spurs for months and asked for a trade, preferably to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Entering his 16th National Basketball Association season, James had been with the Cavs for 11 of them with a four-year break at the Miami Heat in 2010-2014.

LeBron James is now a Laker.

"As trade talks have unfolded, Kawhi Leonard's focus is unchanged: He wants to be a Laker", ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted after James' move to California was announced.

Caldwell-Pope, 25, will head into his second season with the Lakers after finishing a one-year, $18 million deal. Joining James in Los Angeles certainly makes sense from a career perspective.

Accomplishments: Fourteen-time All-Star, four-time most valuable player and three-time champion going into his 16th season. The Lakers are considered strong candidates to sign James, but he also has an offseason home in L.A. "The entire Cavaliers franchise thanks LeBron for that precious moment and for all of the excitement he delivered as he led our team to four straight NBA Finals appearances". The five-year playoff drought for the Lakers has felt like a long one. The big man has taken to social media to help lure LeBron to Philly and make the 76ers seem at least a little bit more attractive to the highly sought-after free agent.
