Speaking on Spectrum SN in Los Angeles, President of Basketball operations Magic Johnson said that he was surprised by how much LeBron knew about the players now on the Lakers roster. The game proved to be James's final appearance for the Cavs as he signed a four-year deal with the Lakers this month.

Some fans even went as far as to say that Rob Lowe crashed the signing photo, and that Lowe is, in fact, the real general manager of the Lakers, not Pelinka.

"He competes and is an incredible leader who only seeks to win and make sure that his team-mates are successful".

Landing who is perhaps the best National Basketball Association player to ever walk the earth is not really in that category.

"We all know that the work is not yet done. We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation", Pelinka added.

There was certainly a high level of excitement and anticipation from the Lakers before free agency given the type of player that James is, now widely regarded as being the top player in the league.

James will join a promising but unproven core of young players including 20-year-old Lonzo Ball, 22-year-old Kyle Kuzma and 23-year-Josh Hart. "It's a huge step closer to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals". James won two titles with the Miami Heat and one with the Cavaliers.

Free agents could begin signing their new contracts this past Friday.

"I think they considered us very strongly", Harris said of James's representatives while talking to reporters on Monday at the Las Vegas Summer League, as reported by ESPN.

James, 33, has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in 1,143 career contests.
