LeBron James has officially been a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for a couple of weeks now. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star signed a four-year, $153 million contract with the Lakers earlier in July. He's yet to officially comment on his decision, but he's expected to speak publicly at a charity event in Ohio later this month.

Everyone else, of course, has publicly commented on his decision, including several notable NBA players.

Among those players: Kevin Durant.

Durant is one of the few players in the NBA who can - somewhat at least - know what it feels like to be a player of LeBron's stature. KD made a controversial free agency decision a couple of years ago when he left the Thunder for the Warriors.

The Golden State star has a new public comment on LeBron's decision. Speaking to ESPN, Durant said that he loves what LeBron did.

"I absolutely loved it," he told ESPN's Marc J. Spears. "I think it was the perfect decision, perfect move."

Durant added that he feels LeBron did everything he was supposed to do in Cleveland - he led the Cavs to multiple NBA Finals and won a championship. He believes that LeBron is helping change the way we look at superstars in the NBA.

LeBron can be credited with a lot of what's happening in the NBA. Stars are taking control of their careers in a way we haven't seen before. Much of this seemed to start when LeBron decided to leave Cleveland for Miami, teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

The LeBron-Durant rivalry might be the best in the league now, too. We can't wait to see the LeBron James-led Lakers face off against the Kevin Durant-led Warriors in the seasons to come.
