The news that the entire sports world was waiting to hear came down on Sunday night, as reports confirmed that LeBron James had joined the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Cavaliers forward shunned offers from the Rockets, 76ers, and his own Cleveland Cavaliers, in order to sign a 4-year $153.3 million deal with Los Angeles.
