The days of photoshopping LeBron James into Los Angeles Lakers jerseys are a thing of the past. He’s in UCLA Health Training Center, in purple and gold working out with his new teammates, and YOU GUYS WHERE DID ALL THIS DUST COME FROM?

Wednesday afternoon, James also offered up the first look at him in the Lakers’ “gold” jerseys (I’m using quotes because those things are yellow. You had one job, Nike) and offered up one of the best responses to the trolling of Lakers fans that you’ll find.

As you’d hopefully expect by now, the internet did not disappoint in its responses to these images. The internet is, as you know, undefeated.

Shoot for the stars and you might land on the moon, Brandon.

As mentioned earlier, LeBron’s Insta story Wednesday afternoon offered up some internet gold, too.

Never trust Lakers fans with content that can be used to troll others. We know no other way.

That was fun. And man, I can’t believe LeBron is actually a Laker. Crazy.
