LeBron James: Basketball star agrees to join Los Angeles Lakers

Report Sixers meeting with Le Bron James in Los Angeles

That's a much different tone from the last time James left the city.

They rallied from 3-1 down in the best-of-seven final against Golden State Warriors, becoming the first team in National Basketball Association history to do so, against a team that had set a league record of 73-9 during the regular season.

It had always been rumored that James would be joining the Lakers as a free agent.

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.

This doesn't seem to be an isolated case as some users have commented in the same post that they too have experienced the problem. Samsung has acknowledged the issue and said it teams are looking into the problem in a statement to the Gizmodo .

Johnson, an NBA legend and president of basketball operations in Los Angeles, told reporters last week that he would resign if he could not attract top talent in the next two off-seasons.

LeBron James jerseys with the No. 23 are already on sale in the Lakers online shop, and they're really, really popular. He also led the Cavs to a championship during the 2016 season, ending a 52-year title drought for the city. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons in Miami.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons".

After taking some instant action on the Lakers, the Westgate moved their odds to 7-2, which is tied with the Boston Celtics for the second choice behind the Golden State Warriors, the minus-110 favorite to repeat as champs.

Cristiano still has a lot to give to the game", Santos said when asked if he felt his captain would carry on representing his country.

While dethroning the Golden State Warriors will be very hard, the Lakers are heading in the right direction.

But money and years of security were less a concern than being able to play for a title contender. With the OK3 remaining intact, Chris Paul and James Harden attempting to run it back, and Kevin Durant returning to the Warriors for two more years the Western Conference may be the toughest either conference has ever been.

Next year's expected free agent market would include San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard, former James teammate Kyrie Irving and Golden State guard Klay Thompson.

The signing also means James will have to interact with the Ball family at some point in the next four years.

Who Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
Sarah Sullivan, who was in Ocasio-Cortez's graduating class, said she was "deeply rooted in social justice issues" at BU . In an interview, Ocasio-Cortez called his absence that night "disrespectful, not just to me but to the entire community".

James will join a Lakers team which has missed the playoffs for five consecutive seasons, the longest streak in franchise history.
