LeBron James agrees to 4-year, $154M contract with LA Lakers

That dropped on Sunday night as Klutch Sports offered up a brief release announcing his new 4-year, $154 million with the Lakers.

The Cavs can offer James significantly more money - $207 million over five years, compared to $153 million over four years - than the Lakers and 76ers. However, he's outgrown that from a basketball perspective (Cleveland Cavaliers have three NBA Finals losses to the Golden State Warriors in the last four years) and a business standpoint.

The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving home again, Cleveland fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sports championship drought in 2016. One of general manager Koby Altman's most critical tasks will be deciding whether to retain or trade Kevin Love, who will make nearly $50 million the next two seasons.

This is the second time James has departed from Cleveland.

LeBron James' Decision 3.0 is officially over and it didn't end with a royal procession on its way to Philadelphia.

Obama offers Democrats tough love ahead of midterms: 'Enough moping'
There was no immediate response to an email sent late Thursday night to a Republican National Committee official seeking comment. He also warned Democrats not to get too complacent just because they've been doing well in recent elections.

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert didn't use Comic Sans this time around in his reaction to LeBron James's departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Hopefully for them, they will still be his teammates by the time the season starts.

James is a four-time NBA MVP and two-time Olympic gold medalist.

In 11 seasons with the franchise, he averaged 27.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Afterward, James yelled, "Cleveland, this is for you", into Doris Burke's microphone. "This will always be home".
