Los Angeles Lakers instantly become a contender with LeBron James

Nicknamed "King James", he is possibly the NBA's most dominant player, with countless endorsement deals. The All-Star is unhappy and spent much of the season injured but refused to even attend his team's play-off games from the sidelines.

The 76ers' contingent was to be led by their ownership group headed by Josh Harris and David Blitzer, a person with knowledge of the details told AP.

Cleveland's roster was exposed during this year's finals, and James may not have seen a way for it to improve enough to win a fourth title.

The Spurs have been pursuing a package for Leonard that combines future assets and players who can help them stay a playoff team in the present.

'CLEVELAND, THIS IS FOR YOU!', James screamed after upsetting the odds to beat Golden State in a seven-game NBA Finals series back two years ago.

And he also snubbed what could have been the most money and longest deal available, the Cavaliers being able to extend James a five-year contract worth $209 million.

A lot of fans are shocked by the 33-year old's move to Los Angeles. If the Lakers strike out this summer, they are likely to try to make a splash in the summer of 2019.

The Knicks and Clippers were also mentioned as possible destinations but in the end, James opted for Los Angeles, who are run by former Lakers great Magic Johnson. The team was projected to have a little under $50 million to hand out.

But James has been to eight straight National Basketball Association finals. The Lakers would surely still love to land Leonard to give them two bonafide stars and a shot at contending for a championship this year.

The bonanza started Saturday night (US time) when Durant made a decision to sign a two-year, $US61.5 million deal with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, one where he'll make $US30.5 million this season.

One fan, @asapolin, whose name is Alec on his Twitter account posted a video of a James Cavaliers jersey on which he placed a piece of paper that read "Thank You Lebron" and patted it in a show of appreciation.

The Cavaliers also tried to keep James, reportedly being on the phone with him seconds after midnight Sunday as the free agency period opened.
