Jerry West: ‘LeBron was not a tough free-agent signing’ for Lakers

LeBron James is taking full advantage of his home in Los Angeles. He was a 12-time All-Star, completing the task each year he was in the league.

After signing a four-year $154 million contract to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James has sold an untitled comedy pitch alongside writer Steve Mallory (The Boss, Superintelligence) to Paramount Players via his SpringHill Entertainment company, Variety has confirmed.The outlet notes that James is in talks to star in the untitled film. Upon returning to Cleveland, James went to four more consecutive finals' and led the Cavs to one of the most memorable championships of all time, coming back from a 3-1 deficient to beat the National Basketball Association juggernaut Golden State Warriors in 2016. The former Cleveland Cavaliers star chose to decamp from his home state in order to play in the glitz and glam of Southern California. The Lakers are immediately, undeniably better with him on the roster. The Los Angeles Times praised James for his "impressive off-court timing and a sense of humor about his own image" while Schumer admitted "with full confidence.I believe he could have another career in acting if he wanted".

"All due respect to the Lakers, who handled everything well", said West, "but, as these things go, LeBron was not a tough free-agent signing".


The mural was first vandalized Sunday morning, with "We Don't Want You", "No King" and "3-6" - a reference to James' NBA Finals record. Period. He has a family he's thinking about. He will be a celebrity out here, sure, but it's a place where, once in a while, he can get lost, be himself.

Even if some in Los Angeles haven't been welcoming to James and some others have been arguably too welcoming, James is already taking a shine to Hollyood.

West is probably right that it wasn't hard for the Lakers to sign LeBron.
