Late Saturday night meeting with Magic Johnson sealed LeBron James’ decision to accept Lakers offer

On Saturday morning, James flew into Los Angeles from Anguilla, where he and his family vacationed last week. He spent the day at home. Minutes before Johnson arrived at his house, Paul George, another free-agent star the Lakers were targeting to return to his Southern California roots, shunned the Lakers. On a stage in Oklahoma City he announced he would return to the Thunder. He agreed to a four-year deal worth $137 million without even taking a meeting with the Lakers, the franchise with whom he’d publicly flirted for a year and a half.
