LeBron's reported deal with the Lakers, a US$154 million whopper, covers a period of four years, which will bring LeBron up to 2022 when he will be 37-years-old.

But Golden State added Kevin Durant in the wake of defeat and beat the Cavs in the past two NBA Finals, their dynasty more than Cleveland could handle, no matter how they assembled talent around James. Both players enjoyed plenty of success the first time around and eventually won back-to-back championships in Miami.

The disgruntled star of the Spurs has been adamant about wanting a trade out of San Antonio with the Lakers the only team he's willing to play for. The worst move the Cavaliers made was because Kyrie Irving didn't want to play with LeBron James anymore.

George's move has given James more to process, but the chance to restore Los Angeles to prominence may be just what he needs at this point in his career.

Many decided his reason to leave Cleveland Cavaliers was down to a massive mistake made in the NBA Finals by former teammate JR Smith.

76ers to meet with LeBron James' agent
From 2014 to 17, the 27-year-old played for six different teams, which resulted in a return to Indiana. He averaged 10.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting in a first-round loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers .

The Cavs could have significant salary-cap space in 2019-20, depending on what they do with Love, Tristan Thompson (who will make $18.5 million that season), Jordan Clarkson ($13.4 million), J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver.

James will enter a new phase of his career, his name joining some of the game's greats that have worn a Laker uniform including, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. He averaged 10.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting in a first-round loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers had hoped to re-sign James, who has appeared in eight consecutive NBA Finals. Earlier this season, James was flattered when a Pennsylvania company paid for three billboards in OH urging James to come to Philadelphia, where the club has been abiding by a "Trust The Process" mantra while rebuilding.

#Twolves, Knicks, 76ers, Lakers, Pacers, others have registered interest in FA Lance Stephenson.

When James went to Miami, he was playing alongside all-stars in Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. However, a player or two from their young core might end up emerging as a star.
