LeBron James is leaving his hometown team for the second time. James, who was born in Akron, has agreed to a four-year, 154-million-dollar contract to join the Los Angeles Lakers after spending the past four seasons with the Cavaliers.
“The King” was drafted first overall by Cleveland straight out of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in 2003.
He played the first seven years of his career with the Cavs before signing with Miami prior to the 2010-11 season. James returned after four seasons with the Heat and took Cleveland to four straight NBA Finals, including the Cavs’ first title in 2016.
