LeBron James Officially Signs With The Lakers

State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers

The news of the contract signing, like the July 1 announcement the 33-year-old would part ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Los Angeles, was announced on Twitter by Klutch Sports, the agency that represents James.

"This is a historic moment for the Lakers, and we could not feel more grateful and honored,"Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka said".

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers smiles after a play in the second quarter against the New York Knicks at Quicken Loans Arena on October 30, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson said: "LeBron is special".

"He competes and is an incredible leader who only seeks to win and make sure that his team-mates are successful".

The NBA superstar recently signed a four-year, $154 million contract to play for the Lakers. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals".

No surprise here, that James has made it official, despite calls from some critics that he should back out of the deal.

James brought Cleveland its first major sports crown since 1964 when the Cavs won the 2016 NBA crown but lost three of four finals showdowns with the Golden State Warriors, falling to 3-6 for his career in the NBA Finals, and chose to make a move in hopes of rebuilding the Lakers into a victor. Now, the pressure's on Pelinka and the Lakers to give him the supporting cast he needs. LeBron is a Laker.

And we, happily, all know how that turned out. LeBron's signing further stacks the Western Conference and puts the Lakers back into the national spotlight, but the roster around him is not going to threaten Golden State or Houston as now constructed. The 2003-04 Rookie of the Year is a five-time First Team All-Defensive Team member, a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist for Team USA (2008, '12) and the 2016-17 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award victor. To that, Magic and GM Rob Pelinka have added Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and JaVale McGee.
