Ice cube, Chuck D, Quavo, Lil Wayne and more about it 'bout it.
Los Angeles, CA – Although the Cleveland Cavaliers were crushed by the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals last month, some basketball fans were still hoping the Cavs' star player LeBron James would remain with the team.
But those dreams were crushed on Sunday (July 1), when James revealed he was leaving his hometown team to Hollywood and announced that it had signed a four-year contract with the los Angeles Lakers for a cool $153.3 million euros.
James joins one of the franchises with more history in the history of the NBA. Basketball legends like Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Shaq have all donned the purple and yellow jerseys over the years.
Hip Hop came out in droves to celebrate James' move to the City of los Angeles. Ice cube, Lil Wayne, Chuck D, Quavo and T. I. were only a handful of people who took to Twitter to express their excitement.
