Of course, such huge thing couldn’t pass without Twitter users attention so Nexter.org has found the most hilarious reactions and memes you need to see. 

Welcome to Lakers, King James

LeBron James is leaving Cleveland (again) and heading to Los Angeles. The NBA superstar has agreed to a four-year, $154-million contract with the Lakers, according to a release from his agency, Klutch Sports Group, Sunday.

The 33-year-old is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the LA team, which has been struggling for years to rebuild and reclaim its once-unmatched talent and reputation after several record-setting losing seasons.

Lebron switches teams

This will be the third time in eight years that James, one of the best players in NBA history and self-declared GOAT, has switched teams. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons with the Miami Heat and in two years led the team to NBA championships, the city’s first in 52 years.

According to ESPN, there have been only three other players in history who have changed teams after a top-three MVP season.

King James records and achievements 

James is famously extremely talented. He’s won three championships and has appeared in the NBA Finals every year since 2011. In his last season with the Cavs, he averaged 27.5 points per game and carried the team through four finals games against the Golden State Warriors.

Nexter.org has already written about his major records and most memorable achievements here.

LeBron’s deal is worth $154 Million

LeBron James is already a very wealthy man (his net worth already exceeds $275 million).

According to Yahoo Sports, the deal is worth $154 million over four years. It is also claimed, the Lakers were in a strong position to obtain James because they had room in their cap, giving them almost $50 million available to play ball.

Longest deal

According to ESPN, the contract locks him in for more years than any of his contracts has since 2010.

That year, he signed on with the Heat for a term of six years, ESPN reports, adding that it’s not the first time during his storied career that James has been a free agent. It’s still a rare opportunity for a team to get a shot at him, though.

Twitter users reactions and memes

Many fans said they might turn into Lakers fans.
