Why LeBron James Chose Los Angeles Lakers Over All Other Teams

Lonzo Ball Le Bron James Lakers

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on December 14, 2017 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. A new iteration was installed in 2014, upon James' return to Cleveland and since served as a mainstay of the downtown area.

Bryant won five National Basketball Association titles in LA and, although the team have been absent from the playoffs for the last five seasons, he believes the Lakers can be a contender again with James on board.

James' management company Klutch Sports Group later confirmed the move.

According to reports, Johnson showed up at James' house one minute into free agency and recruited him to the Lakers for three hours.

But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since.

When the 2018 offseason started, Kawhi Leonard told the Spurs that he preferred to be traded to the Lakers and informed other interested teams that he intends to sign with the Purple and Gold as an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019.

The Warriors have defeated James's Cavs in three of the last four NBA Finals including a 4-0 sweep last month.

The power forward shot 45.8% from the field, and served as a nice complement to the all-around playing style of LeBron James.

And he also snubbed what could have been the most money and longest deal available, the Cavaliers being able to extend James a five-year contract worth $209 million.

Following James' decision to leave Cleveland for a second time, a Cavaliers fan accidentally set himself aflame as he attempted to burn a LeBron jersey.

If fans bought a Cavaliers LeBron jersey in the last 90 days, Fanatics has a Jersey Assurance program that enables consumers to exchange, free of charge, a James Cavaliers jersey for either a James Lakers jersey or a new jersey of a player on the Cavaliers. "He clashed with Kobe Bryant, voiced frustration with coach Mike D'Antoni, and seemingly burned his bridges after the season was over by leaving to sign with the Houston Rockets despite the Lakers' impassioned "#StayD12" campaign.
