A Week after announcing he was going to the Lakers LeBron James made it official last night when he finally signed the contract.
The Lakers front office was obviously gushing over the signing.
Magic Johnson, the Lakers’ president of basketball operations, called James “the best player in the world” in a news release.
“He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful,” Johnson said. “The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals. It’s a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals.”
This is a historic moment for the Lakers, and we could not feel more grateful and honored,” Pelinka said. “When LeBron James – a perennial NBA MVP and champion who is playing at the most astonishing levels of his career – chooses to join the Lakers, it serves as the ultimate validation for what we are building here. However, we all know that the work is not yet done.”
Now that he’s officially signed with the Lakers LeBron posted a video of himself getting ready for the upcoming season by doing squats in the gym.
Of course everyone on the Internet turned into squatting experts and ripped LeBron over his technique.
