LeBron James signs his Lakers contract

LeBron James signs his Lakers contract

This is the first time during his tenure with the Lakers that the pressure will be on for Walton to show that he can be the coach that cannot only take the franchise to the next level, but also help them lift to compete for an National Basketball Association title.

The agents revealed July 1, hours after the start of free agency, that James had agreed to terms on the Lakers deal, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers after four seasons in which he led them to four NBA Finals.

"However, we know that the work is not over".

It's been 10 days since LeBron James decided he would leave the Cavaliers for the Lakers, agreeing to a four-year max deal in L.A. that he officially signed earlier this week. "He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful", said the former Lakers great, who was instrumental in landing James. But before James and Co. went public with the news via a simple Instagram post, the three-time champion sent an even simpler text to Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka.

"It's a big step closer to returning the Lakers to the postseason and the NBA Finals". "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner number 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

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.

"I think they considered us very strongly", Harris said Monday at the Las Vegas Summer League, via ESPN.

James played in all 82 games last season, tallying a team-high 27.5 points (third in the NBA), acareer-high-tying 8.6 rebounds and a career-high 9.1 assists (second in the NBA) while shooting54.2 percent from the field.
