LeBron James is coming to Los Angeles, and some of Hollywood’s biggest sports fans are sharing their thoughts.

The NBA superstar is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to enjoy the the more temperate climate of Southern California for the Lakers’ 2018-19 season, after signing a four-year, $154 million deal, according to a statement tweeted out by his agency, Klutch Sports, on Sunday.

Rumors of James’ imminent move to the Lakers have been swirling for weeks, and when the news finally hit, many fans were excited to see the speculation become reality – especially Chrissy Teigen, who did some investigative, tongue-in-cheek reporting of her own before the news went public.

On Saturday, Teigen tweeted, “I feel like starting basketball rumors.” She then followed that up with, “I’m at a small embroidery shop in downtown LA and lebron is here with a blank Lakers jersey? Trying to get a pic.”

After nearly everyone in the world said she was clearly and obviously making stuff up, Teigen triumphantly shared a link to the news of James’ new Lakers deal, writing, “Told youuuu.”

I am sure the Lakernation is rejoicing The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders.

LeBron James has called Los Angeles his home on Twitter, and Twitter either loves LeBron’s tweet or hates it.

James turned to Twitter to seek out a pickup game, and Jamal Crawford told LeBron to come on out to Seattle, because they had great pickup games out there.

According to Yahoo, that’s when LeBron responded that he might take a day trip to Seattle whenever he was back home in Los Angeles.

LeBron returned to his house in Bath Township, Ohio, and even bought a home in Los Angeles.

LeBron’s Los Angeles home also became the center of controversy when a racial slur was spray painted on the front gate of the house.

While police investigated that melee, which occurred on the eve of the NBA Finals, fans on Twitter are investigating why LeBron would call Los Angeles home.

Basketball experts say it’s not so far-fetched to think LeBron might sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, especially in light of rumors that LeBron’s wife wants to live in Los Angeles full-time.
