LeBron James Teams Up With LA Lakers In Mega Deal

Basketball superstar LeBron James has signed a mega deal to join Los Angeles Lakers.

James, 33, became a free agent on July 1 after his contract with Cleveland Cavaliers ended.

He has signed a four-year contract worth $154m (£116m) with the Lakers.

While saying his goodbyes to his beloved team The Cavs on Instagram, James said: “Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons.”

“This will always be home.” He added.

LeBron James was selected by The Cavs in 2003 as the first pick in the player draft and he went on to establish himself as one of the best players in the NBA (National Basketball Association).

He was named the league’s most valuable player in 2009 and 2010 before securing a controversial move to Miami Heats in 2010, where he won his first NBA title in 2012 and added a second championship a year later.

James returned back to Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014 despite having two years left on his Miami contract.

He led Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA title in 2016 after they overturned a 3-1 deficit against champions Golden State Warriors.

The Cavs’ triumph ended the city’s 52-year wait for a major sporting title.

LeBron James is widely regarded by many as the greatest Basketball player ever.

He is a 3-time NBA champion, 4-time NBA MVP, 3-time NBA finals MVP, 8-time NBA finals appearance maker, 14-time NBA All-Star recipient, 2-time Olympic Gold medallist, 7th all-time regular season points recipient and 1st all-time play-offs points recipient.
