Klutch Sports Group announced earlier today that the 33-year-old basketball superstar has agreed to join the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $154 million deal. And as expected of any big name that becomes part of the storied franchise, the reaction to LeBron's move to LA was nothing short of earth-shattering.
News outlets have been frantically monitoring the offseason events, after James said farewell to hometown team Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career. To summarize the overwhelming emotions blanketing NBA's fandom, FHM compiled and ranked the memes that best describe what just went down. Take a look.
10) Hardcore free agency
Without assurance of either Kawhi Leonard or DeMarcus Cousins, this was definitely a leap of faith for LeBron.
9) Lance + LeBron = BFFs
Oh, how far these two Eastern Conference rivals have come. Hopefully, it will be Good Lance who shows up.
8) Ghost of JR
Worst-case scenario: Stephenson proves to be more bane than boon, and costs James his fourth championship.
7) A welcoming Terminator
Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the many celebrities who will give the King a warm reception in the City of Angels.
6) Showtime is back
This is pretty much what the landmark Hollywood sign would look like after LeBron delivers on that 17th title.
5) Jampacked Staples Center
Lakers season ticket prices reportedly skyrocketed following news of LeBron leaving Cleveland for Los Angeles.
4) La La Bron
Finally, James can put those underrated pre-game dance moves to good use, under the bright lights of LA.
3) LeBrontourage is real
Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, LeBron, Lance, and JaVale McGee? Things are going to be really interesting next season.
2) Decision Part 2
Any sports meme that gets the Renaissance art treatment is an automatic win for us. We feel you, Kevin Love.
1) Cavs organization RN
In fairness to the owner, Dan Gilbert, issued a more polite statement—minus the harsh words and Comic Sans.
