LeBron James agrees to four-year deal with LA Lakers

LeBron James is joining the Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers contract will see the 33-year-old paid 154 million dollars, Klutch Sports Group said in a statement.

James, a two-time Olympic champion, left Cleveland before in 2010 for the Miami Heat, where he reached the NBA Finals 4 times, going 2-2, before departing for the Cavaliers, vowing to bring a title to Cleveland, his home region having grown up in nearby Akron.

In 11 seasons with the franchise, he averaged 27.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.6 steals per game. Sunday's announcement came on the opening day of the new league year.

The move is a major success for the Lakers, who have had trouble attracting big-name free agents in recent years.

LeBron James' new Los Angeles Lakers jerseys are already a top-selling item online, according to retailer Fanatics, the NBA's e-commerce partner.

Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook's Wedding: Funny Vows, Guests Including Johnny Galecki
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook had been dating for nearly two years before Cook popped the question on Cuoco's 32nd birthday. Kaley and Karl started dating back in March of 2016 and got engaged on her 32nd birthday last November.

The Lakers had a large amount of cap space to work with. He dragged a Cleveland Cavaliers' team that had no business being a championship contender to the 2018 NBA Finals.

The front page of the Los Angeles Times had to mention LeBron, of course, but the front page of the sports section really did him justice. "This will always be home", James posted on Instagram with a photo of the Cavaliers' championship parade. We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. He previously played in Los Angeles with the Clippers in 2015-16. However, with James now in town, that will be coming to an end. The game's best all-around player and biggest star will now lead a young Lakers team that has been overmatched in recent years while rebuilding but will instantly rise with James.

Gilbert began the note by affectionately looking back at the moment when his franchise had reached the summit of the National Basketball Association two years ago.

Smith-Schuster's teammate Le'Veon Bell is a LeBron fan first and foremost, as he tweeted, "I never in a million years thought I would ever be a Lakers fan...welp".

In Cleveland, the city James is leaving behind for the second time, several Browns players have offered to step in and be the city's star.
