LeBron James Officially Signs With The Lakers

State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers

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. James' agency announced last week that the superstar had agreed to a four-year deal worth $153.3 million with the Lakers, who have missed the playoffs in a franchise-record five consecutive seasons.

Kobe Bryant would tell him that the key to coaching James is to be willing to listen and work with him - but also, as Phil Jackson had done with Bryant, to "know what's really important to you as a coach" and stick to it.

L.A.'s newest Laker officially signed his new four-year, almost $154-million contract Monday night alongside his agent Rich Paul and Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

This marks the first time James will play for a team in the hotly contested Western Conference, which includes heavyweight teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.


"He competes and is an incredible leader who only seeks to win and make sure that his team-mates are successful". The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals. James won two titles with the Miami Heat and one with the Cavaliers.

The Lakers tweeted an image of James wearing the team's purple and gold jersey with his name and number, 23, on the back and the city lights of Los Angeles in the background plus "The King has arrived" as a caption.

Sixers managing partner Josh Harris said Monday, from summer league action in Las Vegas, that he thinks James gave serious thought to joining Philadelphia.
