LeBron James meeting with Sixers in Los Angeles | What it means

LeBron James

He was named the NBA's most valuable player in 2009 and 2010 and controversially moved to Miami in 2010.

Durant, Paul and George all knew what they were going to do even before the NBA's moratorium - and the start of free agency - officially kicked in at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Sunday. It has been widely speculated for a year that James had his eye on Los Angeles, where he maintains an off-season residence and has myriad entertainment business ventures.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Lakers netting James is what this means for free agency moving forward.

"The Lakers are FOREVER gonna be Kobe's and Magic's team", Embiid wrote, referring to Kobe Bryant and Johnson.

If true, this puts to bed long-simmering speculation about James' immediate future in the National Basketball Association, with previous reports suggesting that he would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers once again.

It appears that James chose the Lakers over the Cleveland Cavaliers, although the Philadelphia 76ers did make a push late. And while he has always been compared to Michael Jordan, Johnson is the one whose game more closely resembles his own.

Of course, the move was a no-brainer for any team that was hoping to sign James. McGee has played the past two years for the Golden State Warriors.

His legacy is already written as one of the two or three best players to ever play the game, but the same can't be said for Kawhi Leonard who could soon be his teammate with the Lake Show.

James' four-year, $154 million contract will net him over $35 million each season, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.

As has been the case in the past, James didn't have enough help as the Cavs were swept, dropping him to 3-6 in the NBA Finals, a record sometimes used to compare him to Michael Jordan.

After experiencing several losing seasons without a chance at the postseason, Lakers fans were full of excitement.
