Posted by

Los Angeles, CA – Although the Cleveland Cavaliers were crushed by the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals last month, some basketball fans were still hoping Cavs’ star player LeBron James would remain with the team.

But those dreams were crushed on Sunday (July 1), when James revealed he was leaving his hometown team for Hollywood and announced he’d signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for a cool $153.3 million.

James joins one of the most storied franchises in NBA history. Basketball legends like Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaq have all donned the purple and yellow jerseys over the years.

Hip Hop came out in droves to celebrate James’ move to the City of Angels. Ice Cube, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Chuck D, Quavo and T.I. were just a handful of those who took to Twitter to express their excitement.
