James made a decision to sign a three-plus-one contract with the Lakers, which signals his long-term commitment and faith.

There's still an outside chance that Magic Johnson and the Lakers could work out a trade with the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

The Lakers also are projected to have enough cap space to sign a second max contract player in 2019. There obviously aren't going to be any reports leaked from either the Lakers or his camp that he's already frustrated before he's even technically signed the contract. The Lakers' 35 victories last year were their best performance during five years without a postseason game for a team that had never missed the playoffs more than two seasons in a row.

That is the claim made by Dahntay Jones, a close friend and former team-mate of James' at the Cleveland Cavaliers during their championship-winning season in 2016.

But as weird as it seems to team James up with a former nemesis, a big man whose basketball IQ gets questioned daily and a point guard who can't shoot in a time when every position needs to be able to shoot, this is all part of the Lakers' grand plan.

Although there were suggestions of installing a Browns-related image after James's move was announced, another team in town got a little salty about being overlooked. That's exactly what the Warriors did by signing Boogie Cousins to a one year $5 million dollar deal.

TMZ: A few months ago, you called LeBron to LA.

A general view of a new LeBron James banner outside Quicken Loans Arena before a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks on October 30, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio. Some Clevelanders said they hoped it would remain as a tribute to James' years with the Cavs. It's been a sad three or four years for them. Some championships for the Lakers.

Rajon Rondo reached a lot of success early in his career as a member of the Boston Celtics, playing alongside Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

In a new look inside the Lakers' post-LeBron moves, Brian Windhorst of ESPN explains that LBJ and Magic Johnson met on the first night of free agency and reviewed the Lakers' plans.
