It was great to tell him that his favorite player was going on my favorite team.

I was at work. Got a text on my Apple Watch. Looked up at the TV and saw ESPN announcing it. I happen to have a Mic in my hand and announced it to the room who didn’t know what I was talking about. A few minutes later every idiot was a basketball expert and people became Lakers fans on the spot. That’s when I realized that the Lakers were no longer mine and my internet friends. The fair weathered fans have returned.

The worst for me is trying to have a discussion with people who don't understand the salary cap.

"The Lakers should just take the money they were paying Mozgov and sign AD! "

"The Lakers are rich they can sign anyone"

Mainstream fans don't have a clue about the CBA.

Eating a gigantic carne asada chili rileno burrito in my kitchen watching The Office on my iPad an then as Jim was pranking Dwight, I get that alert on the top of my screen from ESPN “Lebron James signs 4 yr deal with the Los Angeles Lakers”.

I immediately slam the burrito onto the counter with a few brisk victory sprints in my backyard screaming at the top of my lungs WE ARE BACK BABY!!!!!!!!!!!

I was laying a cross my bed, having a conversation with my wife. My cousin called and we had a short convo about free agency. We hung up. About 1 minute later, he called right back yelling through the phone "we got him! We got lebron!" I was like, " where did you hear that?" He was like "it just came across my phone"! I said "hold up, let me check". At that very moment, my son, who was washing the dishes, listening to music with his headphones on, started yelling " we got lebron"! I turned to NBA tv and there it was!

We kinna know he was signing with us so i dont remember. Big shock for me was when we traded for Gasol. It was out of nowhere and when i saw we traded Kwame,picks, Critentton and s&t Mckie (lol that was funny, guy was winner of the trade as much as Lakers) it was even bigger shock and my eyes were seeing larry o'brien trophies.

Studying for a chem test the next day.

Didn't study at all, bombed the test and dropped the class. Now I'm taking it this semester.

Dammit Lebron, you couldn't wait another day?

I was at my cousin's engagement party in Hermosa Beach (they rented out a beach house for the day which was amazing). I remember I was talking with another cousin at the party and he was like holy (bleep) the lakers just signed lebron. This particular cousin is a joker so I thought he was full of (bleep) and I told him whatever man stop trolling. Then he was like no dude I'm (bleep) serious. I had to check for myself, couldn't believe it.

Walked into a restaurant and heard the staff talking about James' career which prompted me to finally check my phone. I recall it had been the busiest few weeks at work and it was good to see it actually happen.
