When it was announced LeBron James was a free agent, a lot of people were trying to figure out where the baller would go next. He'd already gotten rings with Miami and The Cavs, so what's the next move? Well some people were looking forward to LeBron coming to Philly to play with the Sixers, but I didn't think he would. Well, he definitely became a trending topic yesterday. ESPN announced LeBron is taking his talent to Los Angeles. He signed a 4-year, $153.3 million contract to play with the Lakers. That's definitely a lot of money. His agency, Klutch Sports Group announced the deal. Apparently, it's the longest deal that LeBron has signed, since he signed a 6-year contract with the Heat. I wonder if Cleveland will be burning LeBron's jerseys again. Meanwhile, some former Laker players are welcoming LeBron with open arms.
I am sure the Lakernation is rejoicing The acquisition of LeBron James means that the Lakers are just a smidgen away from being real contenders. Congrats to @MagicJohnson & @LALakersLive et al. Cross your fingers for news from San Antonio.— Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (@kaj33) July 2, 2018
