With LeBron James once again dominating the sports news cycle all day today thanks to his bombshell decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, one interesting piece of trivia has floated to the surface as a result.
The blockbuster contract sends the 33-year-old four-time NBA Most Valuable Player to one of the league's most iconic clubs, adding to the legacy of such legends as Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson.
The team, which has enough salary-cap space to sign him and another star player, is still said to be in pursuit of Kawhi Leonard.
James will make $25.65 million next season.
The meeting occurred after James' agent reportedly had conversations with the Cavaliers.
"LeBron James, four-time NBA MVP, three time NBA finals MVP, fourteen time NBA all-star, and two-time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four-year, 154 million USA dollar contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", Klutch Sports said at 5:05 pm.

The Lakers' prize free agent, of course, wore No. 23 at St. Vincent St. Mary High School and all of his 11 seasons with the Cavaliers.
The Lakers have a young, talented but inexperienced roster and they were hoping to land both James and possibly George.
