The three-time National Basketball Association champion was selected by the Cavaliers in 2003 as the first pick in the National Basketball Association draft and established himself as one of the league's best players. However, there should be plenty of space with the Lakers to replicate some of these numbers. In fact, James might not even speak with top team officials before making a decision on his destination for next season.
The meeting occurred after James' agent reportedly had conversations with the Cavaliers.

The Lakers have retired 16 numbers over the course of their storied history, but luckily for James, No. 23 isn't one of them. But the All-Star forward opted to stick with the Thunder and will sign a four-year deal when teams are permitted to finalize contracts on June 6.
According to ESPN, the fourth year of his contract is a player option. Now he has to go through the Warriors and the Rockets in the Western Conference playoffs before the NBA Finals.
