How star free agents fared in their first season with new NBA teams

LeBron James has made his third move as a free agent to another team. James landed with the Los Angeles Lakers after making moves to the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers. All that traveling has led us to think about how James and other free agents did in their first season in new surroundings.

Here’s a look at some of the big deals who relocated for big deals.

LeBron James to the Heat

Taking his talents to South Beach proved controversial. In the 2010-11 season, at 26, James played in 79 games. He averaged 26.7 ppg, 7.5 rpg and 7 apg. He was named first team All-NBA, first team All-Defense and, of course, was an All-Star. With James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh forming a formidable trifecta, the Heat went 58-24. They advanced to The Finals, where they were stunned in six games by the Dallas Mavericks.
