LeBron James to join Lakers for $154 million over 4 years


LeBron James already linked back up with Dwyane Wade this past season with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Carr's tweet received a lot of feedback from players across the National Football League, and it appears as though several of his teammates are excited to join him. In 2009 and 2010, he was tagged as the most valuable player. However, it's important to note that both Paul George and Chris Paul will be staying put, so the idea of pairing James with a superstar comes down to if the Lakers will be able to acquire Kawhi Leonard in a trade. IN traded George to Oklahoma City shortly after he made his intentions known to the organization last June. He agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Lakers, according to ESPN and The Athletic.

His agency revealed he was heading for Los Angeles.

There are several star National Basketball Association players set to hit free agency in 2019. The big man didn't play in the game after rupturing his Achilles, and the injury will limit the kind of contract he'll be offered.

LeBron is nearly always mentioned as one of the best - if not the best - basketball player of all time.

Fox Sports Show host Nick Wright said James will make an official announcement on Tuesday.

There's nothing worse than a bandwagon fan, and like Carr, I've been a Lakers fan since I could walk as an infant, and with LeBron now joining the team, there will be plenty of new Lakers fans strutting their colors.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported James' deal with L.A. on Sunday. Which in turn, would leave better free agent options behind for the Heat. While building a solid young core, the two were also able to create cap space.

"This summer and next summer", Johnson said. The five-year playoff drought for the Lakers has felt like a long one.

In the first three hours of sales, there was a 600 percent spike compared to how his new Cavaliers jersey sold on the site on the day when he returned to Cleveland from Miami in July 2014. He'll have to play with Lonzo Ball - assuming he doesn't get dealt - which means he'll have to deal with Lavar Ball as well. It's just a matter of whether or not the Lakers are willing to match the Spurs' asking price.

So the Lakers' pursuit of Leonard may continue.

Cleveland's success also ended the city's 52-year wait for a major sporting title.

Snoop Dogg, The Game, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and T.I. are just a few of the people who've tweeted to welcome "King James" to Los Angeles.

Fans in OH, meanwhile, are looking to move forward: James' jersey sales have plunged by 40 percent in the Cavs' team shop at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron's deal with the Lakers takes him to 2022, when he'll be 37. The All-Star fell in love with Oklahoma City after just one season and chose to stay put. From there, the odds plummet dramatically to the Philadelphia 76ers at 14-1.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: "LeBron James has chosen the Lakers and every other team in the National Basketball Association should be wary of this storied franchise right now". The Lakers can afford to be patient in building the team, even if James wasn't on board.

But switching conferences for the league's best player changes things. Playing alongside another star like Leonard would give him a fighting chance.

Pass-rusher Myles Garrett, the team's No. 1 overall pick previous year, tweeted to James, "if you don't want to take your throne with you, I'll take it..." and two of his teammates on defense, Christian Kirksey and Damarious Randall, wrote similar.
