Why LeBron Signed With the LA Lakers, By The Numbers

Derek Carr has been a loyal fan of the Lakers since his childhood, and has tried his best to recruit his good friend, and NBA All-Star, Paul George to the squad for years now, but he seems more than okay with the addition of LeBron instead.

"LeBron James, four-time NBA MVP, three time NBA finals MVP, fourteen time NBA all-star, and two-time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four-year, 154 million USA dollar contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", Klutch Sports said at 5:05 pm.

James reportedly agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the team.

After taking some instant action on the Lakers, the Westgate moved their odds to 7-2, which is tied with the Boston Celtics for the second choice behind the Golden State Warriors, the minus-110 favorite to repeat as champs.

James, 33, would have made $35.6 million in the 2018-19 season had he exercised his option with the Cavs.

Snoop is one of the Lakers' best-known supporters and shared an image of LeBron alongside some of the team's most legendary former players.

Going by the price, the smartphone will face tough competition from Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and the recently launched Moto G6 . The smartphone is priced at Rs 14,490 and will be available starting July 5 exclusively via Flipkart and Samsung's e-store.

One of the stars that welcomed James with open arms includes global soccer superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who famously moved to MLS this year to play for the LA Galaxy.

Hours before National Basketball Association free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize, James returned Saturday to Southern California, where he has two homes and a film production company. The Lakers are considered strong candidates to sign James, but he also has an offseason home in L.A. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with Los Angeles, according to our own Shams Charania.

James was on a plane that flew into Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles on Saturday, a source told ESPN.

LeBron is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, but has notably less Championship wins than the likes of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to back that up. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home.

It was a striking change in Gilbert, who had written his letter in comic sans font and had called James the "so-called King".
