LeBron James left Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers after opting out of his contract.

Johnson announced his choice in an impromptu news conference without first telling many in the Lakers organization, including owner Jeanie Buss, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and James. He had no clue something out of the ordinary was about to happen. 'Nah, I'm out of here, ' " James said, via the Washington Post. "And not even have [a heads-up] like: 'Hey, Bron. kiss my a-".

One NBA insider indicates that James' past connection with former Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue make it seemingly inevitable that the Lakers will end up hiring Lue for the job. Some reports have surfaced that he was accidentally CC'd on some disparaging emails, leading to his decision to depart and go back to being just a multi-millionaire businessman. "I'm gone.'. It wasn't even that". I'm not playing but my team is still playing.

"We were like, 'Damn, right now?' It was literally 70 minutes on the clock before [tip-off]".

James passed the news on to Lonzo Ball and the news quickly spread across the Lakers' locker room.

James revealed that he found out about Johnson's resignation from his business partner, Randy Mims, and then confirmed the news browsing his phone. Like: 'Hey, Bron, it's Magic. "Right now. I feel like there's a time and place for things, and I believe you knew you were going to make that decision, so why would you do that here?"

The Lakers have dropped coach Luke Walton and are reportedly looking to hire Tyronn Lue, who had been coach of the Cavaliers when James led them to an National Basketball Association title in 2016. "I wanted to be a part of that process". At year 16, you aren't really supposed to be anxious about no damn process.

The Los Angeles Lakers failed to live up to expectations this season, missing the playoffs in LeBron James' first year with the team.
