LeBron James signs four-year deal with Los Angeles Lakers

LeBron James Chrissy Teigen

"The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders", Lakers icon Kareem Abdul-Jabbar added. However, late Sunday night, James' decision was announced and he will be a member of the Lakers.

James won a National Basketball Association title with Cleveland in 2016, but had generated buzz he would leave OH after losing consecutive finals' series to the Golden State Warriors in the last two seasons. The only thing remains is if there is still any bad blood within the Lakers organization from years past when he didn't want to play alongside Kobe Bryant. Those are LeBron James increases.

During four seasons at South Beach, James and co won two championships before the OH native chose to return home to help the Cavaliers win a title.

The relationship between the Spurs and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP has soured beyond fix and, after months of speculation, the 27-year-old has indicated he wants out of San Antonio. Overall, it was a great job by both Magic and Pelinka to sell James on coming to Los Angeles.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons". "This will always be home". For years, James has been able to walk into the Finals with a level of ease, now, in the Western Conference, he must fight to gain that entry. The Golden State Warriors still hold the crown until someone proves otherwise.

For all the grief Love catches, never forget he signed a maximum contract extension with the Cavaliers the second he became a free agent.

The buzz surrounding Howard was that he was interested in playing for either the Warriors or whatever team James ended up going to.

Wojnarowski added that disgruntled San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard is still set on also donning the iconic purple and gold colors.

But with the Lakers also having lost one key player when power forward Julius Randle agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, there's a possibility management may now be looking for another big man to fill the void. It brought in an estimated $21 million in earned media for Goodyear.
