Not a Surprise for Former Teammates Who Played with Lebron
Lebron’s decision was one he had considered for years and didn’t come as a surprise to some of his former teammates. According to NBA.com, the reasoning behind his choice had to do with the young athletes he’d play beside, the cap situation with the team, the connection he’d have with Magic Johnson, and the respect he had for the Lakers franchise. Rife with historical championship feats, he wanted the opportunity to be a part of it at this stage of his career.
Showing Love for His Cavaliers Fans on Instagram

Coming Off a Season of Record-Breaking Feats
Of the 82 regular-season games, he played in all of them. The NBA also ranked him third for his 27.5 point average and career highs of 8.6 rebounds as well as 9.1 assists. Cleveland made it to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year because of Lebron’s contribution to the team.
Lebron’s History of Excellence Shines Through
Throughout his career, he has been named an NBA All-Star in the last 14 seasons, racked up the highest points in history for a career player (30,000) along with 8,000 rebounds and an equal number of assists. The accomplished athlete has proven his worth as an award-winner, Olympian, and role model. His contributions to the communities he’s played in are well-known, too.
