LeBron inks four-year contract with Lakers

LeBron inks four-year contract with Lakers

If you thought LeBron James signing his 4-year/$154 million deal with the Lakers (which was announced more than a week ago) was already official, you'd be forgiven.

Stephenson has a history with James, including a choke sign to Miami's bench after James missed a late free throw in a lopsided in playoff win in 2012, trash talk and the ear-blow incident when Miami met in in the 2014 Eastern Conference finals and striking James in the groin when the star drove to the hoop in a game last November. "'The best player in the world is a Laker'".

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. James has proven with a near-impeccable consistency that he can transform any team into a legitimate title contender, something that the Lakers have not been over the past several seasons.

Arsenal complete move for Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira
Arsenal have sealed the signing of Uruguay global Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria , the Premier League campaigners have revealed. He wants to learn and improve and will be an important part of our first-team squad", said Arsenal boss Unai Emery .

"It's a big step closer to returning the Lakers to the postseason and the NBA Finals".

James' teams have advanced to the NBA Finals in eight consecutive seasons, including last month when he and the Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by the Golden State Warriors for the third time in four seasons. Instead, LeBron will join a different young core in Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart in Los Angeles. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner number 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

"The Decision" arguably was the most over-the-top free-agent announcement in sports history.
