LeBron James' LA Lakers Decision Has Fans Excited About 'Space Jam 2'

NBA free agency rumors Kevin Durant signing 1-and-1 contract with Warriors

The Cavaliers also tried to keep James, reportedly being on the phone with him seconds after midnight Sunday as the free agency period opened.

But this one? This one is ... odd.

Paul informed the Cavs on Friday morning that the four-time MVP would not opt in to the final year of his contract; James was scheduled to make $35.6 million in 2018-19.

LeBron James in action against the LA Lakers for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron James' Decision 3.0 is officially over and it didn't end with a royal procession on its way to Philadelphia.

The 33-year-old James is coming off a season in which he averaged 27.5 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He was the difference between annual title contention and residence in Eastern Conference purgatory, and it stands to reason his departure will send Cleveland back into rebuilding mode as the franchise deals with another changing of the guard.

While the Golden State Warriors, winners of three of the last four National Basketball Association titles, remain the favorites at minus-110 - meaning that a gambler would have to wager $110 to win $100 - the Lakers and the Boston Celtics are next at 7/2, followed by the Rockets at 7/1.

Cavs have had 'good dialogue' with LeBron
Irving's absence was never felt more than in the Finals as the Golden State Warriors only had to concentrate on James. If LeBron remains a Cavalier , the Cavs can trade that 8th-pick player in a month for whatever they can get.

Other than posting to his Instagram account, James did not issue a public statement after he was traded to the Lakers.

And now LeBron James is joining them.

LeBron James is leaving home for Hollywood and an iconic team.The Los Angeles Lakers have a new superstar - L.A. -Bron.

O'Connor also reported James is not expected to sign with the Lakers on a long-term deal, if he does choose Los Angeles.

James joins a Lakers team with some young talent, including Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma.

George's move has given James more to process, but the chance to restore Los Angeles to prominence may be just what he needs at this point in his career.

With the Sixers though, he has a chance to become the franchise's most adored player since Allen Iverson and Dr J, and deliver the fanbase something that a lot of them have been waiting for their whole lives.
