LeBron James is Moving to LA-And Twitter is Celebrating with Memes

LeBron James is Moving to LA-And Twitter is Celebrating with Memes

The Los Angeles Lakers have been busy since LeBron James made a decision to take his talents to Tinseltown, reportedly agreeing to deals with Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson and JaVale McGee.

Fans in OH, meanwhile, are looking to move forward: James' jersey sales have plunged by 40 percent in the Cavs' team shop at Quicken Loans Arena. On Sunday night, James thanked the city of Cleveland for the four monumentual years that he played after his return from a short stint with the Miami Heat.

James, who has a home and production company in Los Angeles, joins a team with plenty of money to spend under the National Basketball Association salary cap and a desire to rebuild into a championship team after years of struggles.

While the decision was bound to create major buzz around the league, it was never going to shift the balance of power at the top of the National Basketball Association.

Wojnarowski added that disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard is still set on also donning the iconic purple and gold colors. "#TheKingIsHere", point guard Ball tweeted after the news broke.

In the meantime, after conducting a youth movement over the past few years, Los Angeles is following up the addition of the 33-year-old James by getting older in other parts of the roster. After one year with the Thunder, George liked the organization enough to re-sign there on a four-year deal instead of joining the Lakers. With his own production company SpringHill Entertainment, James' projects include a remake of "House Party".

The explosion of Lakers ticket interest should come as no surprise to anyone who followed James' two stints in Cleveland.

There's a risk in waiting for Leonard, as the Lakers just saw this summer. They traded for J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, and Timofey Mozgov months into the 2014-15 season when the team got off to a slow start.

Nevertheless, the Lakers aren't sitting on their hands after luring LeBron to Hollywood. Here are five reasons to love the Lakers signing James.
