High-quality photos of LeBron James in the Lakers jersey. We have high hopes for him this season.
New Tab for the fans of one of the best basketball players in the world – LeBron James.
LeBron Raymone James Sr. is a professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is considered the current best NBA player and the second best NBA player of all time (right after Michael Jordan).
James’ agency, Klutch Sports Group, announced his decision on Twitter. The four-time MVP chose to leave his home state team for the second time in his career and will sign a four-year contract worth $154million (£116.7m) – in excess of $35m (£26.5m) per season rising as high as $41m (£31m) – to move to California.
LeBron led the Cavs to four straight NBA Finals, helping them to their first championship in 52 years, but could not prevent them being swept 4-0 by the Golden State Warriors last month.
The 33-year-old decided to opt out of the final year of his contract in Cleveland and will join the prestigious purple and yellow to play in the Western Conference for the first time.
The Lakers have not reached the play-offs in any of the last five years, a franchise record for the 16-time NBA winners, and won just 35 of their 82 games in 2017-18.
He was born on December 30th, 1984 in Akron, Ohio (age 33). James’ NBA accomplishments are extensive, and include four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards, three NBA Finals MVP Awards, two Olympic gold medals, three All-Star Game MVP awards, an NBA scoring title, and is the all-time NBA playoffs scoring leader. He has also amassed fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, twelve All-NBA First Team designations, and five All-Defensive First Team honors.
He is 2.3 (6ft 8in) meters high and weighs in at 113kg. His Estimated Net Worth is $440 million.
In 2010, when he announced that he was leaving the Cavaliers to join the Heat, he was being watched by 9.95 million viewers. It was the third most watched television programme that year. In 2014, Forbes named him the most powerful athlete in the world.
His average per season is 2000 points, 500 assists and 500 rebounds. Not only is LeBron the only player in the NBA history to record those statistics in just seven seasons, he’s also the only player who did it back to back in four successive seasons.
Did you know?
He won Player of the Month award five times. LeBron is the first and only player in the NBA league to have won the award as many times. He’s also the only player to win it four times, twice.
