Because it is Los Angeles, several celebrities weighed in on James' decision to join the Lakers. It has been widely speculated for a year that James had his eye on Los Angeles, where he maintains an off-season residence and has myriad entertainment business ventures.

Already some in the National Basketball Association world are talking about the idea of reformatting the playoffs and making it the 16 best teams rather than eight from each conference.

The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving home again, Cleveland fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sports championship drought in 2016.

Extremely strong reports indicate that LeBron James has agreed to a mammoth deal to pull on the forum blue and gold and play for the Los Angeles Lakers next season. James also thanked Northeast Ohio on Instagram. It would be hard to justify any bitterness on the part of fans in Cleveland.

The move will make the three-time champion the most important figure during the upcoming free agency period which will feature other big name stars like Paul George, Demarcus Cousins and Chris Paul.

In his final season with the club, James will make $41 million. Now that he's in Los Angeles, that's impossible. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one authorized that detail be released publicly. The terms were confirmed by a person familiar with the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal can not become official until the league's offseason moratorium ends this week. He played in all 82 regular-season games and then somehow carried a team that underwent several transformations to a fourth straight conference title and matchup against the Warriors. James helped seal a Game 7 win with a chase-down block of Andre Iguodala, the signature moment of a career that has shown no signs of decay.

Embiid posted a message on Twitter that seemed to be directed at No. 23 and what it might be like to walk in the footsteps of Lakers legends like Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Shaquille O'Neal. And while he has always been compared to Michael Jordan, Johnson is the one whose game more closely resembles his own.
