Lebron James Signs to Lakers with 4-Year Deal
Akron, Ohio native LeBron James has made his 3rd decision in the free agency market. He is taking his talents to the West Coast as he signs a 4-year $153.3M deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. LBJ is fresh off a NBA Finals disaster where his then former team, Cleveland Cavaliers, was swept by the reigning champion Golden State Warriors. The 4 year MVP and 14-year All-Star won't be heading their alone. After announcing that he would be headed to the Lakers, Lance Stephenson,Rajon Rondo, and Javale McGee all announced they would be heading to L.A. via free agency on 1-year deals. James,33, came back Cleveland 4 seasons ago after leaving Miami and accomplished one of his goals: Bringing a Championship Back Home. In 2016, he and former teammate Kyrie Irving defeated the Golden State Warriors rallying back from a 3-1 deficit. Now King James is in the Western Conference with tougher competition than the Eastern Conference. This just may be his most challenging test in his career.
