Magic Johnson’s 2016 Tweet About LeBron James Cost Him Honorary Lakers Title

LeBron James opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cavaliers

LeBron James opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cavaliers

Caldwell-Pope, who's represented by the same agent as LeBron, spent last season in L.A. and will re-sign on a $12 million deal.

A pre-sale of the James jersey began at 8:45 p.m. ET on Sunday night, less than one hour after the four-time NBA MVP announced his intention to sign with the Lakers.

James led the Cavs to four consecutive Finals after returning in the summer of 2014, but the 2017-18 team had a rocky regular season that included a huge makeover at the trade deadline and was swept by the Golden State Warriors in the championship series.

It wasn't long before the city of Los Angeles, along with many favorite celebrities, started celebrating on social media to welcome James, 33, to the city and the Lakers.

"LeBron James, four time NBA MVP, three-time NBA finals MVP, 14-time NBA All-Star, and two-time Olympic gold medallist, has agreed to a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", James' management company Klutch Sports Group said in a statement. The latter two have partial guarantees on their contracts that season.

Moody's said in a note: "The outcome of Sunday's elections leaves Mexico at an uncertain, and potentially critical, juncture". Still, his procession toward victory has alarmed many investors and business leaders.

Los Angeles also made a flurry of complementary moves as Johnson attempted to assemble an immediate playoff contender on the wreckage of five playoff-free years.

In a busy day for the franchise on Sunday, they reportedly acquired three more free agents to play alongside the King.

The Philadelphia 76ers reportedly also had strong interest in the 33-year-old, who is regarded as one of the greatest players in National Basketball Association history.

Before James's decision, the Lakers were at 8/1 while the Celtics were at 4/1, tied for second with Houston behind Golden State (even money). One of the top suitors of Leonard is the Los Angeles Lakers.

Given the Golden State Warriors' addition of DeMarcus Cousins to what was already a ludicrously loaded roster, a championship seems logically out of reach for anybody else in the National Basketball Association. Playing alongside another star like Leonard would give him a fighting chance. The Lakers will have room under the salary cap to sign another max salary player next year.
