Just today, Russian Federation knocked off Spain, LeBron James announced his intentions to sign with Los Angeles Lakers and now, LeBron's long-time playoff foil Lance Stephenson is following him to Hollywood.

His management agency, Klutch Sports Group, announced his agreement with the Lakers with a simple, short release. James chose to flip the script on the waiting game when it came to free agency, pulling the trigger and wrapping things up before week's end.

Three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James has agreed to a four-year $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, his agency said on Sunday. The fourth year of the contract will come with a player option and marks the longest contract James has signed since signing a deal for six years with the Heat back in 2010. The 33-year-old had previously said he wanted to finish his career in OH, and although he's leaving again, Cavs fans are more forgiving after he ended the city's 52-year sport title drought in 2016.

James, meanwhile, paid tribute to Cavs on his Instagram story in which he said: "Thank you Northeast Ohio for an incredible four seasons". "This will always be home". A championship that united generations of Clevelanders, both living and passed.

James had one of his best seasons in 2017-18, playing all 82 games for the first time and averaging 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists, while making 54.2% of his shots and 36.7% of his 3-point attempts. Paul informed the Cavs on Friday morning that the four-time MVP would not opt in to the final year of his contract; James was scheduled to make $35.6 million in 2018-19. "I don't think LeBron is that type of parent, I think he wants to be around his son a lot and see his son play a lot". In his final season with the club, James will make $41 million. James helped seal a Game 7 win with a chase-down block of Andre Iguodala, the signature moment of a career that has shown no signs of decay.

This marks the first time James will play for a team in the hotly contested Western Conference, which includes heavyweight teams such as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.
