Why FSU Football needs LeBron James to leave Cleveland again

SPORTSLeBron James representatives to meet with SixersSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

By the time he announced, just over $US900 million worth of new deals had been agreed upon, based on figures confirmed to the AP by people involved in the various decisions - nearly all of that money getting committed by teams in the West.

LeBron James is headed to Los Angeles and National Basketball Association fans have a lot to say about it. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports James has agreed to a massive four-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers.

But this one? This one is ... odd.

LeBron James is leaving home for Hollywood and an iconic team. That's made it tough for Cleveland to upgrade its roster, but the Cavs remain committed to bringing back James even for just one more year.

James has dominated the Eastern Conference over the last eight seasons. He also set career-highs in rebounds (9.1 per game), assists (8.6 per game) and appearances (82 games).

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.

In going to the Lakers, James is the latest in a long line of superstars - from Wilt Chamberlain to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Shaquille O'Neal - who have arrived in Los Angeles with a mandate to win championships. But Chris Paul and Paul George (and Kevin Durant, kind of) passed on an opportunity to team up with James with the Lakers this summer. That put them in the running to sign not just James, but potentially a few other strong players.

James and the Cavaliers had been beaten in three out of four NBA Finals against the Warriors since 2015.

As has been the case in the past, James didn't have enough help as the Cavs were swept, dropping him to 3-6 in the NBA Finals - a record sometimes used to compare him to Michael Jordan.

A lot of fans are shocked by the 33-year old's move to Los Angeles.

Lakers great Kobe Bryant showed support for James' decision in a tweet, saying "Welcome to the family".
