Chris Bosh could join LeBron James with Lakers

In fact, The LeBron James Family Foundation is set to open a brand new school in Akron this Fall. If James is able to lead the Lakers to their first title since 2010, he would become just the third player in National Basketball Association history to win championships with three separate franchises.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Monday that the Lakers have a meeting scheduled with Tyreke Evans. Joining James in Los Angeles certainly makes sense from a career perspective.

James informed the Cavaliers on Friday that he would not exercise his $35.6 million contract option.

Only the Golden State Warriors have shorter odds than the 16-time National Basketball Association champions, with the bookies giving the defending National Basketball Association champions 10/11 odds of retaining their title and becoming the first team since the Lakers in the early 2000s to win three consecutive championships.

All of the buzz from the past year that LeBron James would leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers became a reality Sunday night, July 1.

There was a flurry of big-name signings in the first hours of free agency, but James remained noncommittal.

The Lakers are only prepared to offer one-year deals this summer in order to keep enough cap room available for 2019 when more marquee free agents become available.

The Philadelphia 76ers, whose young star Ben Simmons has the same agent as James, were also in the hunt with James, hoping to build a potential triple threat alongside the Australian and Cameroon forward Joel Embiid. He returned to the Cavs in 2014 after four seasons in Miami.

LeBron's team only managed to come out on top once, three years ago - when he was regarded as pretty much single-handedly winning the Cavs their first ever championship.

His agency revealed he was heading for Los Angeles. James flew from the Caribbean island of Anguilla and landed in Van Nuys just after 11 a.m. PT.

James leaves the Cavaliers as the team's leader in games played, points, rebounds, assists and steals.

The blockbuster move means the 4-time NBA Most Valuable Player, who has played in the past 8 NBA Finals, will now join one of the league's most iconic clubs, adding to the legacy of such legends as Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson.

Afterward, James yelled, "Cleveland, this is for you", into Doris Burke's microphone.

The close of the letter expressed more gratitude towards LeBron with an olive branch for the future. User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and or using this photograph, user is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement.
