NBA superstar LeBron James has just made it an insane start to the summer free agency frenzy by agreeing to join the Los Angeles Lakers. The Cleveland Cavaliers unrestricted free agent has decided to take his talent to the iconic franchise.

According to reports, King James is now officially with the Lakers for the next four seasons.

LeBron hopped on his Instagram Story Sunday (July 1) night to bid farewell to his Cavs fans.

NBA analyst and former champion Kenny “The Jet” Smith has already weighed-in on what impact this move could have on the league.

The Lakers are expected to keep building a star-powered team to surround James.

LeBron James will not return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Instead, The King is taking his talents out to the West Coast to join the Los Angeles Lakers this summer. James signed a four-year, $154 million max contract, according to a release from Klutch Sports Group. He joins a Lakers team that is expected to continue making moves this summer to add to a roster that now features the best basketball player on the planet. (SB Nation)

Prior to making the power move, King James had only played for the Cavs and Miami Heat – both teams he won at least one NBA championship with.

Los Angeles also provides James with a larger platform for his business interests and social activism. This is the third time in eight years James has changed teams. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons in Miami. (Washington Post)
