LeBron James, possibly the greatest player in NBA history, will be coming to the Los Angeles Lakers for the 2018-19 season.
According to multiple news sources, the 33-year-old superstar has agreed to a four-year, $153.3 million contract.
He will be leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers, whom he led to the 2016 NBA title, and into the finals three other times. Cleveland was where he started his pro career and he tweeted this goodbye: “Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible 4 seasons. This will always be home.”
“King James” is a 14-time All-Star, has won three NBA titles and four league MVP crowns. He started with the Cavaliers at age 19 in the 2003-4 season, and left for the Miami Heat in 2011-12. He returned to Cleveland in the 2014-15 season.
Over the course of his 15 seasons, he’s averaged 27.2 points per game and made 50.4 percent of his field goal attempts. He also has shot 73.9 percent from the free throw line.
