As a Cavs fan, I'm not mad. Lebron era was going to end eventually, time to startover. Good news is cavs/warriors part 5 won't happen. Will be interesting to see how bad the ratings of the finals are next year.

The Celtics better be winning 60 games. If itís the Sixers or Raptors in the finals itíll be a snooze fest similar to say the Jason Kidd Nets playing the Shaq/Kobe Lakers. I bet weíll see the Warriors playing either the Rockets or Lakers in the conference finals....and that will be the real finals. The east desperately needs Kwahi playing for the Sixers. Or better yet...finally end the east vs west playoff format.

With Lebron and Leonard, they have a fighting chance

Paul George must feel like an idiot. Heís now really rich but missed his chance to play for Lebron and win a title.

This was a business move first, basketball move second.

So should be set up a count down clock for when Luke Walton gets fired?

It's only a matter of time before LeBron replaces Luke with his own hand-picked coach!

I was hoping that LeBron would go to the Knicks. Not that I am a Knicks fan (Celtics), but it would revitalize that franchise. The knicks haven't been good in a long time. I guess that LA is better for LeBron in terms of post-NBA life, but he'll just be another hall of famer that went to LA for the money at the end of the career. LA has had great players over the years in Kareem, Magic, Wilt, Kobe, Shaq... LeBron would be added to that list naturally, but he would be the undisputed best player to have ever played for the Knicks...

Paul George will regret not signing with the Lakers. I honestly feel Russell Westbrook put so much pressure on him to sign that he didn't want to be treated like how Westbrook treated Kevin Durant.

The Knicks have arguably the worst owners in the NBA in terms of making smart decisions and staying out the way. Nobody is going there.

Not the fact that he's leaving Cleveland but that he's joining one of the if not the largest franchise in basketball history. What does this add to his legacy? He wil won't play long enough there that Lakers fans would put him in the same category as Magic, Kareem, Kobe etc.
I'm disappointed, i rather had him go to a underdog and put them on the map.
This version of the Lakers is an "underdog" still. They won 35 games last year and no more than 27 the four prior years. If Lebron takes this team to the finals (thru the West), it would probably be his biggest achievement. The Lakers 2 biggest young stars (Ball and Kuzma) are raw as hell; Ball has scoring skills worse than Rondo and Kuzma is a mess of judgement, just puts his head down and goes. Surely at times Lebron will miss steadier, headier (but lesser) players like Korver and George Hill.

Had he gone to Houston or even Philly, those would not be underdogs.

Not sure why everyone is so down on the east. The best team in the east last year didn't get to the finals due to injury and they're just getting better as they mature.

Regardless, west is going to win again whether it's Houston or GS unless something major goes down in terms of injuries, trades etc.

Lebron gave the East a punchers chance.

The Celtics donít have a prayer against the Warriors.

If they grow from the Game 7 experience against the Cavs- where they were awful, and Kyrie has no lingering Limitations from injury or doesnít get traded they could do well again in the regular season.

Iím rooting for Philly but nothing is guaranteed with them either Embiid health Simmons jump shot.

The middle and bottom might be getting a little better but there is no doubt any longer the West will have the champion next year
