Free agent superstar LeBron James has officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday. He signed a four-year, $154 million deal with the team.

James joins the Lakers, who had no proven stars before his arrival. They were also rebuilding prior to his arrival, too.

With James, the Lakers have added the best player of this generation. He’s also going to play for a Western Conference team for the first time this fall.

In addition to adding James, the team has added several veterans, which is apart of their plan that James and Magic Johnson discussed prior to his signing with the franchise. Besides James, the team has also signed Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee.

As he had to do with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he’s going to have to go head-to-head with the Golden State Warriors. In the past two NBA Finals, the Cavaliers were dismantled by the Warriors, who won 9-1 in those two series.

James, who will be joining his third team in his career, competed in a career-high 82 games last season. He averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 9.1 assists, 1.4 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game.

He spent 11 years with the Cavaliers, who drafted him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. He also spent four seasons with the Miami Heat.

In his career, he is a three-time NBA Champion. He won the NBA Finals with the Heat twice, then in 2016 with the Cavaliers, as they mounted a 3-1 comeback to defeat the Warriors in Game 7.
