LeBron James Officially Signs With The Lakers

LeBron James officially became a Laker on Monday afternoon, signing the four-season, $153.3-million contract he agreed to on July 1 and then posing for a photo with General Manager Rob Pelinka that was posted on the Twitter account of Klutch Sports.

Blaze Pizza is celebrating the arrival of new L.A. Lakers player LeBron James by throwing a "pizza party" in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, complete with - of course - free pizza.

LeBron James came awfully close to staying in the Eastern Conference.

"He didn't make the decision based on where's the best place to win a championship this season because the Lakers would've been very low on that list".

LeBron speaks to the media after being defeated by the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Lakers don't appear to be planning a public event to welcome James to Los Angeles, where he already owns multiple homes and spends summers with his family.

That conjures the image of this being a cool, calm, collected game of chess on both sides: Washington and Beijing. It also is rooted in the clash between American notions of free trade and Beijing's state-led development model.

Pelinka echoed that by saying "This is a historic moment for the Lakers, and we could not feel more grateful and honored". If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner number 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

Yet Wright, speaking on First Things First, insists that James did not join the Lakers on the basis that he would team up with Leonard and that he is relaxed about his chances of reaching a ninth straight Finals.

James is not expected to attend, however, and is not expected to speak publicly about his decision until a charity event in OH later this month.

"I think they considered us very strongly", Sixers managing parner Josh Harris told ESPN on Monday. Walton also was said to have spoken by phone with another of James' past coaches, Miami's Erik Spoelstra.

James is coming off one of his greatest National Basketball Association seasons, playing in all 82 regular-season games for the Cavaliers while finishing third in the National Basketball Association with 27.5 points per game and hitting career highs with 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists.
