"He competes and is an incredible leader who only seeks to win and make sure that his team-mates are successful".

The Lakers don't appear to be planning a public event to welcome James to Los Angeles, where he already owns multiple homes and spends summers with his family. "It's a huge step closer 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,"Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka said".

"Let's welcome #LAbron to LA the only way we know how!" a post on Blaze Pizza's Facebook page announcing the promotion stated. "We will continue forward and do everything necessary to achieve that shared obsession of bringing the No. 17 pennant to the best fans in the world - the Lakers Nation".

The European nation will face either England or Croatia on Sunday after they defeated their neighbours Belgium by one goal to nil. We've never been in such a situation, and that's why we need our team spirit more than ever against France .

The 33-year-old budding entertainment mogul immediately becomes the focus of the Lakers franchise and a possible foundation for the NBA's next superteam, depending on whether James and the Lakers can persuade more superstars to join him in the next year or two.

Free agents could begin signing their new contracts this past Friday.

"I think they considered us very strongly", Sixers managing parner Josh Harris told ESPN on Monday. This has brought forth a different territory for Walton to coach with James given what he brings to the table that requires a specialized type of coaching style.

James was third in the National Basketball Association last season with 27.5 points a game, matched his career high with 8.6 rebounds and was second in the National Basketball Association with a career-high 9.1 assists while shooting 54.2 percent from the floor. Over the course of his 10-year career, McGee has averaged 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks. Last season was his first in which he played in all 82 regular-season games, and the eighth in a row in which his team advanced to the NBA Finals (four in Miami before each of the past four seasons in Cleveland).
