The Lakers have signed LeBron James to a four-year max-contract deal. Late last night, it was reported that President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson met with James personally at his residence.

It has been known that James has the utmost respect for Johnson. Although earlier reports came out this morning stating that James and the Lakers did not meet in person, it is safe to say that those reports were untrue.

The Lakers were planning to meet together as a group in their training facility last night to discuss and go over their free agency plan, but Johnson was noticeably absent, reportedly meeting and talking with James during that time.

This meeting between arguably two of the greatest players of all-time was kept in the dark until James made his decision to sign with LA.
