After almost a year's worth of speculation, the 4-time MVP is once again leaving Cleveland, this time to sign a free agent contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
With James' decision to leave Cleveland - just as he did eight years ago when he joined the Miami Heat - the Cavs say goodbye to their all-time leader in several statistical categories, including points, rebounds, assists, steals, games and minutes played.
News of James' arrival at the Lakers sparked a delighted response on Sunday.
Since Kobe Bryant retired in 2016, the Lakers have sought to add a franchise-changer to lift them from a long, dry spell unheard of in their storied past.
"I am sure the Lakernation is rejoicing".
This also means that, for the first time in his career, LeBron will be playing in the NBA's Western Conference, eliminating the chance of next year's NBA Finals being a fifth-consecutive showdown between the Golden State Warriors and whatever side LeBron is on.More news: Hawks-Mavs swapping Doncic and Young
The NBA's most glamorous team has landed LeBron James, his agency confirmed on Twitter Sunday (Monday, Manila time). He has said he wants to end his career in his home state of OH, where, in 2016, he brought the state's 52-year championship dry spell to an end.
James thanked his home area in an Instagram story.
He delivered the first championship to the sports-obsessed city in 52 years and did it with storybook gusto, helping the Cavaliers become the first team in NBA Finals history to rally from a 3-1 series deficit to win it all.
James has always been one of the most highest-paid players in the league. McGee has played the past two years for the Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers can offer top money plus talent and draft picks in order to surround James with competitive players enough to challenge the Warriors, who suddenly must contend with James as a Pacific division rival rather than a foe to be faced only twice a season and for the National Basketball Association title.
