For example, perhaps no coach had a worse summer than Tyronn Lue, who was "shocked and hurt" when LeBron James left the Cavaliers in free agency.

If you thought LeBron James signing his 4-year/$154 million deal with the Lakers (which was announced more than a week ago) was already official, you'd be forgiven. And now, that location can expect an absurd crowd.

"Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP", said Lakers President of Basketball Operations Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

For the Black Mamba, having a teammate of James's caliber would make up somewhat for the final couple of years of his career, when he was miscast as the grizzled leader of a team otherwise featuring the very young likes of D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals". The vandals spray-painted "LeFraud", "We don't want you" and "3-6", a shot at James' career NBA Finals record.


With the four-time league MVP's arrival, Johnson and Pelinka have options in the short- and long-term.

The Lakers added Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo to help on the defensive side of the floor.

But they didn't even get a meeting with star scorer Paul George before the Southern California native re-signed with Oklahoma City, and their efforts to acquire disgruntled two-way superstar Kawhi Leonard from San Antonio haven't borne fruit so far.

But Blaze Pizza - the growing pizza chain in which James is an investor - announced a three-hour pizza giveaway on Tuesday to welcome James to LA.

LeBron responded with a tweet, his first since June 26: "Haven't been to a pizza party in a minute ..."
