  • LeBron James has agreed to a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers it was announced on Sunday

LeBron James is leaving Cleveland again ― but not without a classy online farewell. It was a move changed the landscape of the National Basketball Association.

The Cavs have been battling it out with Curry's Golden State Warriors over the past few years, with the two sides reaching the NBA Finals for the last four years in a row. Leonard has been at odds with the Spurs for months and asked for a trade, preferably to the Los Angeles Lakers. It will take a little patience.

The Sixers can offer James a chance to play alongside budding, young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as well as stay in the Eastern Conference, where the path to the NBA Finals is far easier than out West.

Zlatan welcomed LeBron in a way that only he could.

LeBron's reported deal with the Lakers, a US$154 million whopper, covers a period of four years, which will bring LeBron up to 2022 when he will be 37-years-old.

He was spotted in Los Angeles, which stirred speculation that he was interested in the Lakers. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons in Miami. He also led the Cavs to a championship during the 2016 season, ending a 52-year title drought for the city. He never gave up leverage, he pushed them as an organization (with mixed results).

Medium Large is looking to add motivated individuals with big dreams and a big appetite for success to our LakersNation.com direct sales team based in Los Angeles or Orange County. This is not just a summer of 2018 project, lining up the right players to contend will stretch into 2019.

The team can pair James - and whoever else might be coming - with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma.

The team didn't wait long to announce their next move. San Antonio is going to slow play this.

There's a danger in waiting, as the Lakers just saw.

The Lakers potentially signing Bosh is intriguing, to say the least. Players with 7-9 years of experience, can earn a max salary of $30.3 million.

Now comes the harsh light of evaluation on those players - which ones can help win a title for the Lakers, and which ones are out. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. The guard signed a one-year, $12 million deal to remain in L.A. Rich Paul represents both James and Caldwell-Pope.

The massive Los Angeles market will also provide James with a grander platform for his philanthropy and social activism.
