James won a National Basketball Association title with Cleveland in 2016, but had generated buzz he would leave OH after losing consecutive finals' series to the Golden State Warriors in the last two seasons.
The explosion of Lakers ticket interest should come as no surprise to anyone who followed James' two stints in Cleveland. "If they get anyone other than Kawhi Leonard, they'll be a good team and fun to watch but I don't think they're a title contender yet".
The team can pair James - and whoever else might be coming - with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma. Fortunately for Laker fans, LeBron will follow as the next all-time great player to play for this historic franchise.
James and the Lakers agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal. That number will slowly rise over the course of the contract.
The Cavs could have significant salary-cap space in 2019-20, depending on what they do with Love, Tristan Thompson (who will make $18.5 million that season), Jordan Clarkson ($13.4 million), J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.
LeBron is heading to LA.

EU's Juncker says backing of Irish Brexit position will not change
This week the European Union warned that more work was needed on how to deal with the 300-mile frontier post-Brexit. They also call for "further clarity from the United Kingdom as regards its position on the future relationship".
Only the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors have better championship odds than the Lakers at the Westgate.
James and the Cavaliers had been beaten in 3 out of 4 NBA Finals against the Warriors since 2015.
His agency revealed he was heading for Los Angeles. Acquiring him could arguably give Philadelphia the best team in the East. They were 48-11 against Eastern Conference clubs in the playoffs.
The Cavaliers also tried to keep James, reportedly being on the phone with him seconds after midnight Sunday as the free agency period opened.
The team didn't wait long to announce their next move.
Caldwell-Pope, who's represented by the same agent as LeBron, spent last season in L.A. and will re-sign on a $12 million deal.
Early Monday morning, we got our answer. His initial reaction to the move was extremely positive. James joined the Lakers without there being another All-Star on the roster, indicating that he's prepared to wait to compete for a title and not be among the championship favorites next year. "This will always be home", James posted on Instagram with a photo of the Cavaliers' championship parade.
The NBA has been been mulling over the one-and-done rule for quite some time now, with suggestions being that it could be gone by 2021. There might be far fewer burned jerseys this time around.
