LeBron James is bound for Los Angeles, and he's taking his number with him.
The Lakers have updated their online store to promote jerseys and t-shirts featuring James' number 23 in purple and gold on the home page.
Signed for Lakers on four-year deal on Sunday
James opted out of his contract with Cavaliers on Friday to become free agent and announced on Sunday through his agency that he had agreed to a four-year contract worth $154million with the Lakers.
James, 33, averaged 27.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for the Cavs last season. The four-time MVP upped those numbers to 34 points and 9.1 rebounds during Cleveland’s run to the NBA Finals, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors.
