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.
Klutch Sports tweeted a picture of LeBron signing the deal alongside his agent, Rich Paul, and Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka.
The Lakers have missed the playoffs in a franchise-record five consecutive seasons, while James has played in the past eight NBA Finals with the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning three titles.
"He competes and is an incredible leader who only seeks to win and make sure that his team-mates are successful".
"It's a big step closer to returning the Lakers to the postseason and the NBA Finals". Last season was his first in which he played in all 82 regular-season games, and the eighth in a row in which his team advanced to the NBA Finals (four in Miami before each of the past four seasons in Cleveland).
The 33-year-old budding entertainment mogul immediately becomes the focus of the Lakers franchise and a possible foundation for the NBA's next superteam, depending on whether James and the Lakers can persuade more superstars to join him in the next year or two.
James brought Cleveland its first major sports crown since 1964 when the Cavs won the 2016 NBA crown but lost three of four finals showdowns with the Golden State Warriors, falling to 3-6 for his career in the NBA Finals, and chose to make a move in hopes of rebuilding the Lakers into a victor.
"When LeBron James - a continuing MVP and National Basketball Association champion, who is playing at the highest levels of his career - chooses to join the Lakers, that represents the most important confirmation of what we are building here". If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you.
And, as hard as it may be to believe, James wasn't the only free agent to change teams this year. "When LeBron James - a perennial NBA MVP and champion who is playing at the most astonishing levels of his career - chooses to join the Lakers, it serves as the ultimate validation for what we are building here".
In addition to James, the Lakers' management team of Johnson and Pelinka have added guards Rajon Rondo and Lance Stephenson and center JaVale McGee to the roster during a hyperactive free-agency period that begin with the start of the negotiating period at 9:01 p.m., June 30.
