LeBron James re-signs to mega-deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers

Published Add your comment

With much less attention than his decision in 2010, LeBron James has confirmed his future following a short spell of free agency. In a move that came as a surprise to literally nobody, the self-professed 'King' has extended his stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

However, in what can be considered a relative shock, the 31-year-old has reportedly signed for three years, bringing an end to his 'tradition' of agreeing to one-year deals since returning to his home state. 

The deal is said to be worth $100 million and will see the three-time finals MVP earn more in a single season than any other player in NBA history.

Having ended the Cavaliers' - and the city of Cleveland's - long wait for a championship, he has his sights set on more success while battling the Golden State Warriors' new 'superteam'.

"I'm re-signing back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, man, my hometown team, and I couldn't be more excited with this opportunity once again man, to defend our crown, defend our title," James said in a posting on Uninterrupted. "We all know last year was magical, inspiring, all the words you can come up with man. It was an unbelievable season.

"I just can't wait to get the group back together man, the team, the franchise, and more importantly get everybody together."

James also pushed for the franchise to re-sign free agent J.R. Smith, who is also a free agent. What LeBron wants, he usually gets, and it would come as a surprise if the newly-married shooting guard is not back in Ohio next season.
