Rondo figures to be the fourth player to come to terms with the Lakers after the massive LeBron James announcement, following the one-year agreements with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee.

But Johnson was confident he could pull something off. I've always said that. But with the Los Angeles Lakers, he is apparently hoping he can significantly change his style of play.

"Welcome to the family @KingJames #lakers4life #striveforgreatness @JeanieBuss @MagicJohnson and RP well done!" he stated.

Nike designed the mural, which shows James from behind.

James didn't stay in the Los Angeles area when he made his free agency decision.

This time around, James just chose to go. Don't focus on the likes of Paul George and Chris Paul who have said "thanks, but no thanks", instead consider this: The Lakers have enough salary-cap flexibility and attractive assets that a concerted push to build a title victor could happen relatively quickly. "Thank you for coming @KingJames, but @kobebryant is still the king of LA".

And unlike eight years ago when he ripped James for leaving, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert thanked him. In 2016, he earned a championship for "The Land". "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform".

It's one of the hottest selling jerseys of all-time. The move to the Lakers has some wondering what the LeBron James-Luke Walton dynamic will be like. James' old city, Cleveland, ranked fourth, according to Fanatics.

"'As long as I'm here, people are going to want to play here".

LeBron James in Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8, 2018 in Cleveland. Until then, this next chapter of his career will be fascinating to watch and may indeed bring a championship banner back to the Lakers. However, his strong offensive efforts through the season and the Playoffs was not enough as the Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers have won the biggest prize of the 2018 National Basketball Association free agency when they succeeded in signing LeBron James to a four-year deal worth $153.3 million. George even agreed to a four-year max contract. The Philadelphia 76ers are getting a chance to pitch their process to LeBron James.

Here are the top 50 free agents now that the 2018 National Basketball Association offseason is upon us.
