LeBron James Officially Signs With The Lakers

Rob Pelinka hailed the signing of LeBron James as a "historic moment" for the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Uh, it was actually amusing that I am actually on the same team", Stephenson said in a conference call on Tuesday. I'm very excited to see what that brings. "I can't wait to get on board".

If you find yourself wondering why LeBron broke his Twitter hiatus to promote what is essentially a fast food pizza joint, then make his first public appearance since signing with the Lakers at that fast food pizza joint.well, the answer is quite simple: LeBron is one of the brand's original investors. 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. "I feel like him reaching out and saying he likes what I bring to the game is fantastic".

"Uh, it was actually amusing that I am actually on the same team".

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.

Stephenson says the Lakers want him to bring his defensive edge, be a veteran leader and just be himself.

You would think that one of the biggest sticking points with trading for San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard would be him not giving some kind of assurance to his new team that he would re-sign with them, or at least strongly consider it, when he can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

"Yeah, it's definitely possible, but it's not going to be easy", McGee said when asked about posing a threat to beat the Warriors.

"I think all the pieces are going to fit ideal", McGee added of the Lakers' defensive additions. Lance, he's pretty good at defense also.
