LeBron James Officially Signs Contract With Lakers

LeBron James is often referred to by the nickname "King James".

A moment of silence is observed in honor of Philip "Flip" Saunders' passing before the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center on October 28, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. And now, that location can expect an absurd crowd.

The Los Angeles Lakers landed the biggest free agent in the 2018 offseason.

There is pizza to be had.

"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", Lakers President of Basketball Operations Earvin "Magic" Johnson said in a statement.

He has also been capped 34 times by his country, and also represented England at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 European Championships.

We'll see if that pays off, and how patient Laker nation - and LeBron - can be.

For the Black Mamba, having a teammate of James's caliber would make up somewhat for the final couple of years of his career, when he was miscast as the grizzled leader of a team otherwise featuring the very young likes of D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. James's face was scrawled over in yellow paint, along with the messages "We don't want you", "LeFraud", "No King", and "3-6" (which, Yahoo Sports helpfully notes, is assumed to be a dig at James's spotty record at the NBA Finals). If you love sports, know digital sales, and can throw your weight behind an aggressive commission based opportunity than we would love to talk to you. The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals.

Last season, James averaged 27.5 points, 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds and led the Cleveland Cavaliers to their 4th straight finals appearance since his return in 2014.

The Lakers already have begun assembling a revamped team around James by acquiring Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson in free agency while retaining guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
