Lakers announce LeBron James has signed

Lakers' GM, Rob Pelinka met with James at what looks to be his home out in Los Angeles to sign the contract and make things official.

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

"Today is a great day for the Lakers organization and Lakers fans all over the world to welcome LeBron James, a three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP", Magic said.

The 33-year-old budding entertainment mogul immediately becomes the focus of the Lakers franchise and a possible foundation for the NBA's next superteam, depending on whether James and the Lakers can persuade more superstars to join him in the next year or two. "It's a huge step closer to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals".

"When LeBron James - a continuing MVP and National Basketball Association champion, who is playing at the highest levels of his career - chooses to join the Lakers, that represents the most important confirmation of what we are building here".

And we, happily, all know how that turned out. Last season was his first in which he played in all 82 regular-season games, and the eighth in a row in which his team advanced to the Eastern Conference finals (four in Miami before each of the last four seasons in Cleveland). The Lakers have won 16 league championships, but haven't made the playoffs since 2013.

This means it'll be more than good enough for browsing the web, watching Netflix, and putting together a PowerPoint presentation. Otherwise, you get a single port for USB-C - a new universal standard that replaces the USB slot you might be familiar with.

James also won Olympic gold medals in 2008 at Beijing and 2012 at London.

James will continue donning the number 23 for the Lakers. While it is no secret James and Paul George were Plan A, they will have cap space once again next year after only signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee, and Rajon Rondo to one-year deals.

The Lakers have a solid young core led by Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and Kyle Kuzma.

It comes after the Lakers were dealt a blow after Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard cooled rumours he could be set for a trade to Los Angeles this summer.

But Blaze Pizza - the growing pizza chain in which James is an investor - announced a three-hour pizza giveaway on Tuesday to welcome James to LA.
