The stars have finally aligned for Lakers & Lebron fans alike. Lebron James is officially signs contact with the Los Angeles Lakers.
A four-year, $153 million contract with a player option in the fourth year. With a strong young core already in place in the Lakers franchise, James has quite a bit of talent to work with. But definitely has plans to bring a few choice players along with him.
In a statement released by the Lakers Organization the team states
“Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP,” Lakers President of Basketball Operations Earvin “Magic” Johnson said in a statement. “LeBron is special. He is the best player in the world. He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful. The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals. It’s a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals.”
Now that the NBA has been remixed quite a bit, I’m sure this will be quite a season.
