How did Cleveland and Los Angeles newspapers treat the LeBron news?

Lakers brass headed by former NBA champion Magic Johnson will try to convince NBA superstar Le Bron James to sign with Los Angeles now that he has become a free agent

LeBron James returns to L.A. to plot his next move

"LeBron James, four time NBA MVP, three-time NBA finals MVP, 14-time NBA All-Star, and two-time Olympic gold medallist, has agreed to a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", James' management company Klutch Sports Group said in a statement.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons", said James on his Instagram account.

Hours after the announcement, the Cavaliers issued a statement from chairman Dan Gilbert, thanking James for leading the team to the National Basketball Association championship in 2016, calling it a title that "united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed". However, there should be plenty of space with the Lakers to replicate some of these numbers. Fanatics initially listed the jerseys with a No. 00 placeholder, but has since updated the listing with James' traditional No. 23 amid reports that he intends to keep the number.

"While I couldn't be more excited to join the Los Angeles Lakers, I first need to thank Pacer Nation for all of the love and support over the years", Stephenson wrote on social media.

The Lakers potentially signing Bosh is intriguing, to say the least.

James has played in the NBA Finals eight consecutive years.

Snoop Dogg, The Game, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and T.I. are just a few of the people who've tweeted to welcome "King James" to Los Angeles.

James isn't expected to drag his choice out over several days.

Gilbert began the note by affectionately looking back at the moment when his franchise had reached the summit of the National Basketball Association two years ago.

After all, the Lakers had reportedly been trying to land San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard in a trade to pair another star with James.

The Cavs, on the other hand, have been mostly operating in the dark.

Taylor, signed to a two-year contract last October, started nine of his 67 games last season. Now he has to go through the Warriors and the Rockets in the Western Conference playoffs before the NBA Finals.

Embiid posted a message on Twitter that seemed to be directed at No. 23 and what it might be like to walk in the footsteps of Lakers legends like Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Shaquille O'Neal.
