Speculations have been going around for a while, but now it’s official! Famous basketball player LeBron James is moving teams – from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers!
After the announcement was made by the agency that represents him, Klutch Sports Group earlier today, many celebs took to social media to react to the news.
‘LeBron James, 4 time NBA MVP, 3 time NBA finals MVP, 14 time NBA All-Star, and 2 time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers,’ the official statement read.
But as fans probably know already, this is not even the first time the skilled sportsman made everyone freak out when he switched teams.
It was back in 2010 that he announced on ESPN during an interview that he was going to leave Cleveland and join Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat for four years.
In 2012 as well as the following year, the NBA player won the Heat Championship.
In 2014 however, he finally returned to his roots and rejoined the Cavaliers where he has been for the past four years.
Now that he is finally, to the dismay of some and the excitement of others changing teams again, fans but also fellow stars took to their platforms to react to the big news.
Chrissy Teigen was one of the very first celebrities who acknowledged the announcement, and she soon retweeted the ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski’s post, captioning it: ‘Told youuuu.’
Meanwhile, Kobe Bryant made sure to welcome LeBron with open arms as he tweeted: ‘Welcome to the family @KingJames #lakers4life #striveforgreatness @JeanieBuss @MagicJohnson and RP well done!’
Rapper Ice Cube also posted about the announcement saying: ‘There is a God! Must be Magic! #happydaysarehereagain.’
