On Sunday evening, the NBA power structure was inexorably changed when it was announced that LeBron James had signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.
It’s a four-year deal worth $154 million, and it puts King James at the center of the NBA’s court on an international level with a legendary franchise.
Needless to say, it also broke Twitter. Here are some of the best reactions.
Well now I can continue to hate on both Lebron and the #Lakers ….. Oh and we won’t have to see either in the Finals for years to come now…. Looks like he will be accepting third place finishes instead of his typical second. https://t.co/zUZ0loxeVt

Then this happened.
Sources: As trade talks have unfolded, Kawhi Leonard’s focus is unchanged: He wants to be a Laker. https://t.co/0wZGf5MrNt
