After a weekend of rumors about where LeBron James would play basketball next, Klutch Sports Group announced that James would be moving to the Los Angeles Lakers. James' reportedly signed a four-year, $154 million dollar contract with the team. It is being reported that Kawhi Leonard wants to join James on the Lakers, though that has not been officially confirmed. This is the third time LeBron James has changed team after a top three MVP finish in the league, according to ESPN.
Lonzo Ball seemed pleased with the news, tweeting "Y’all really thought he was gonna pass up the greatest city in the world... #TheKingIsHere." No matter where Lebron plays, let's hope Rihanna continues to publicly support him on Instagram. Ball wasn't the only one with thoughts on the news, and plenty of people on Twitter shared their thoughts on James' move out west. Check out our favorite tweets below.
