As you may know by now, the Lakers are the newest members of the Los Angeles LeBrons — er — LeBron James is the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
James publicly stepped onto the court in the team's world famous purple and gold for the first time to attend a Summer League game in Las Vegas on Sunday, and received a standing ovation.

Given he didn't leave the league, Bron was bound to come face-to-face with his former leader, Cleveland Cavaliers Head Coach James Tyronn Lue, sooner or later, and it turns out Sunday was the day.

Of course, users couldn't resist throwing some shots at J.R. Smith:

Ty Lue: “He still don’t know you went to the Lakers man”
LeBron: “Hahaha you gonna tell him?”
Ty Lue: “Nah probably not” pic.twitter.com/jSm56R25oA— A-Roz (@ARozYoutube) July 16, 2018
