LeBron's reported deal with the Lakers, a US$154 million whopper, covers a period of four years, which will bring LeBron up to 2022 when he will be 37-years-old.

Unlike his two previous forays in free agency, James did not drag out his decision and made the announcement less than 24 hours after National Basketball Association free agency opened.

LOS ANGELES LAKERS: Salary-cap space, business interests, iconic franchise.

The illustration shows LeBron decked out in his new Lakers uniform, as Lakers fans only dared to dream of until now. Stephenson, however, did still show last season in IN that he is capable of providing a spark on the bench and will likely be a limited contributor in that capacity this coming season. But at least Philadelphia, Houston and San Antonio - and maybe an outsider or two - have legitimate shots at landing James, who made it clear following this year's NBA Finals that he's still driven to win championships.

He joined the league In 2003 as the first overall draft pick by Cleveland.

The Cavs played 81 postseason games - one contest shy of an entire regular season - the last four years, winning 55 of them. James led Cleveland to the NBA Finals, but lost to the Golden State Warriors in four games.

"Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons", said James on his Instagram account.

A WTO official said Friday that the organisation has not heard from the United States about reconsidering its membership. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says the measures are in line with moves from the European Union and Mexico.

The team can pair James - and whoever else might be coming - with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma.

And he also snubbed what could have been the most money and longest deal available, the Cavaliers being able to extend James a five-year contract worth $209 million.

James will make $25.65 million next season. "This will always be home". Now he has to go through the Warriors and the Rockets in the Western Conference playoffs before the NBA Finals.

"James believes the Lakers are in position - with some of the players they have now - to build a team that can contend for a championship soon".

LeBron was welcomed to the side by some of the best players from the Lakers, Kobe Bryant, and Kareen Abdul-Jabbar.

James will wear No. 23 for his new team, according to photos posted on the official National Basketball Association store.

"We'll see what happens with a second piece on the Lakers", Sherman said.
