LeBron James might have signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on the first day of free agency, but earlier this summer the three-time National Basketball Association champion had strongly considered moving to Philadelphia instead. We won't know the answer to that for some time, but James himself seems to be getting the hang of this L.A. thing already.

Los Angeles can collectively exhale. "We will continue forward and do everything necessary to achieve that shared obsession of bringing the No. 17 pennant to the best fans in the world - the Lakers Nation".

"Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP", Magic said. But before James and Co. went public with the news via a simple Instagram post, the three-time champion sent an even simpler text to Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals", Johnson added.

The Lakers tweeted an image of James wearing the team's purple and gold jersey with his name and number, 23, on the back and the city lights of Los Angeles in the background plus "The King has arrived" as a caption.

This marks the first time James will play for a team in the hotly contested Western Conference, which includes heavyweight teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

James' arrival is indeed validation for Johnson and Pelinka, who took over the Lakers' front office in February 2017 with a specific plan to rebuild the franchise by persuading established superstars to join as free agents.

Lakers coach Luke Walton reportedly was scheduled to meet Monday with James' former coach, Tyronn Lue, at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas to learn more about coaching the future Hall of Famer.
