Lebron is the biggest free agent signing by the Lakers since Shaq. I will never forget where I was and when I heard the news. I was sitting in my lounge chair in the living room looking at my cell phone on twitter. All of a sudden I see a press release issued by Klutch sports that he agreed to terms with the Lakers. I wasn't sure of the source so I decided to double check and triple check. By that time the press release was popping up like crazy. At that time I knew it was official.

Where were you when you heard Lebron signed with Lakers?

I was working overtime and I believe it was a Sunday night, when my texts started being blasted by Lebron Fans and long time Laker Haters.

One Lebron Fan and Long time Laker Hater had the audacity to say he's already the greatest player to herald the Purple and Gold. Another one said that Lebron will quickly erase any and all memories of Kobe.

I put them all in a group message and said hey thats nice and all, but lets save the Parade until he actually rings one here in Los Angeles.

Yep. I just looked at the page in the Lebron thread when we got him (page 625 for anyone that wants to revisit it).

Your post made me .

Honestly, I was pretty down that PG spurned us. Also with reports of Bron meeting Philly didn't help.

Then it finally happened. First thing I told my buddy was...

(bleep) PG

Sitting on couch. Not really that exciting.

Shaq, I had already been out that morning, and was pulling into my front yard (third car, could block my parents in the driveway) and there was a syndicated show based in Orlando (that aired on the sports talk station) and as they closed the show for the AM they said that it was official, Shaq leaving for the Lakers and they bid him farewell.

I ran inside and called my brother.

As someone else noted above, there was so much more drama that summer than this one. (We had already traded Divac for Kobe, which was pretty cool, in and of itself. There were also rumors as to whether or not Magic would really stay re-re-retired if Shaq came). It really was a whirlwind summer.
