LeBron has Lakers dreaming bigger than the playoffs, says Kobe

"LeBron James, four time NBA MVP, three-time NBA finals MVP, 14-time NBA All-Star, and two-time Olympic gold medallist, has agreed to a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers", James' management company Klutch Sports Group said in a statement.

The Lakers have failed to reach the playoffs for the past five seasons.

"With LeBron officially agreeing to sign with the Lakers, it'll be fascinating to monitor what type of leverage the Spurs can create for Kawhi Leonard, who still desires to play for the Lakers, according to multiple league sources-all of whom say offers to the Spurs have been underwhelming". He spent four seasons with the Miami Heat before returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2014.

But it's the mystique of the LeBron James brand that's suddenly skyrocketed L.A. ticket demand in the wake of King James' move to the West Coast.

James, who has a home and production company in Los Angeles, joins a team with plenty of money to spend under the National Basketball Association salary cap and a desire to rebuild into a championship team after years of struggles.

Lakers fans are understandably excited to welcome James to their team and city.

James led the Cavaliers to the Finals for the fourth successive year, but despite a superhuman personal performance - in which he averaged 34 points, eight rebounds, ten assists. a block and a steal - the Cavs were easily beaten in four games.

Overall, it was a great job by both Magic and Pelinka to sell James on coming to Los Angeles. "He clashed with Kobe Bryant, voiced frustration with coach Mike D'Antoni, and seemingly burned his bridges after the season was over by leaving to sign with the Houston Rockets despite the Lakers' impassioned "#StayD12" campaign. Those are LeBron James increases.

Waiving and stretching Deng then would get the Lakers to about $37 million in projected space, more than enough to make a max offer to players with seven to nine years of experience.
