LeBron James is leaving Cavs to sign four-year deal with Lakers

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been leading the social media charge following LeBron James' move to the Los Angeles Lakers. Many thought George would sign on early, or that the Lakers would trade some of their young assets for Kawhi Leonard.

"The odds have been against me since I was 5, 6 years old".

In a tone and tenor much different than his letter to Cavs fans following James' stunning move to Miami in 2010, the Cavs owner sent a message of gratitude to his former player.

For the second time in his career, James is saying goodbye to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who drafted the teenage sensation from Akron in 2003 and have to be satisfied with winning just one title in the 11 years they had him.

In less than two years at their respective positions, Johnson and Pelinka have worked tirelessly to transform the Lakers into a free agent destination again. LeBron James continues his chase for National Basketball Association greatness with the storied franchise of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Emery wants to surround himself with the best players and his objective at the moment is Lucas Vazquez, who is now at the World Cup with Spain.

He teamed with Kobe Bryant for three straight titles and made entertainment industry contacts that has led to a lucrative endorsement career long after his 2011 retirement as a player.

Ludacris seemed happy about LeBron's $154m (£116m) move for other reasons. Now, the Purple and Gold have the same odds as the Celtics to win the Larry O'Brien Trophy next year - 7/2.

Imagine it: LeBron James Jr, coming up against his own father on an National Basketball Association court, and just ruining the old boy by dunking all over him.

This time, LeBron let his agent handle all the contacts, listen to the team sales pitches, relay LeBron the info and then announce the decision via LeBron's sports management agency Klutch Sports Group. Not only would he bring the Lakers a great outside shooter but his departure would remove a key piece of the Warriors core no matter how good Durant, Steph Curry and Draymond Green remain.

James has slow-pedaled his last two free-agent decisions, but from the moment his private plane landed at Van Nuys Airport in L.A. on Saturday, he was proceeding with unusual urgency. With Cousins coming off an injury, the Lakers may be able to get Cousins at a discount. He also appeared in all 82 games this past season, the first time he's ever done that.
