James signs four-year deal with Lakers

Lebron James has signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. James agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers on Sunday

The move to L.A. is one that will benefit not only him, but also his family. He have three children with his oldest son Lebron James Jr., who is a great ball player is about to begin high school. James have two homes in the Los Angeles area so signing with the Lakers was the best move not just for him but for his family as well.

In James four-year return to the Cavs, who drafted him straight out of high school in 2003, the Akron native led the team to four-straight NBA Finals appearances.

With James’ move, is L.A. setting themselves up to build a super team skilled enough to defeat the stellar Warriors?
