LeBron James Officially Signs Contract With Lakers

LeBron James Officially Signs Contract With Lakers

Numerous headlines today have been about Harris' claim that LeBron James "considered us very strongly", which is notable because a lot of the evidence and reporting afterward has suggested that James' eyes were set on Los Angeles from the outset.

On Monday, LeBron James officially signed his four-year, $153.3 million Lakers contract, waving goodbye to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career. "LeBron is special. He is the best player in the world".

LeBron James signed his new four-year National Basketball Association contract worth $154 million with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday (Jul 10), with Lakers president Earvin "Magic" Johnson calling it a "huge step" for the team.

He said: "He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful". Presumably, a lot of people in Los Angeles were already big fans of pizza, thanks to pizza being delicious as heck. The Lakers are excited to have a team-mate who has gone nine times to the NBA Finals. "We will continue forward and do everything necessary to achieve that shared obsession of bringing the No. 17 pennant to the best fans in the world - the Lakers Nation".

This marks the first time James will play for a team in the hotly contested Western Conference, which includes heavyweight teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.

While discussing the meeting the team had with James' agent, Rich Paul, and Klutch Sports last week, 76ers managing partner Josh Harris said he felt the superstar "strongly" considered Philadelphia before signing with Los Angeles. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals".

James, 33, has averaged 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in 1,143 career contests.
