Twitter users - brands and celebrities included - freaked out upon learning that basketball superstar LeBron James is joining the Los Angeles Lakers with a four-year contract worth more than $150 million.
Even the Philadelphia Police got in on the conversation after the hometown 76ers failed to woo the king.
Here’s how eight brands reacted to the big news.
Thanks for the memories, @KingJames. The Ceremonial Gold you brought Cleveland will forever be in our hearts. May your future be as bright as you made the last 4 years in Cleveland. #CLE #JustAKidFromAkron pic.twitter.com/9OmC9dC4tf— Sherwin-Williams (@SherwinWilliams) July 2, 2018

Despite all of the rumors that it was happening, we're saddened to report that @KingJames did NOT sign on the dotted line with the PPD. Thank you to all of those who did sign with us during our recruitment drive. We look forward to you #CompletingTheProcess— Philadelphia Police (@PhillyPolice) July 2, 2018

LeBron is a perfect fit for the Lakers since they're a basketball team and he plays basketball.— Netflix Is A Joke (@NetflixIsAJoke) July 2, 2018
