James, 33, is the latest-and one of the greatest-legends to play for the Lakers. The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving again, Cavs fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sport title drought in 2016. He thanked Cavaliers fans in an Instagram post, saying the city will always be his home. His deal with the Lakers is his longest since he signed for six years with Miami in 2010. Gilbert opened his comments by referring to Cleveland's 2016 title as "a championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed". We wish his kids, his wife Savannah, his mother Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. "Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform".


James' deal with the Lakers will pay him $154 million, a max-contract that only Los Angeles and the Sixers were positioned to offer him this offseason.

Okay, let's appreciate that Lance and LeBron are teammates for one last moment before discussing the basketball fit.


Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts during the third quarter against the Golden State Warriors in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. In his final season with the club, James will make $41 million. The best the two teams can do is meet in the Western Conference Finals.

That group will need time together to pose a threat to the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, to be sure. The pair has had a history of notable exchanges, most memorably in the 2014 playoffs, when Stephenson was with the Pacers and James played for the Heat.
