For nearly one hundred million dollars: LeBron James extended a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers Israel today

2022-08-17T19:29:38.901Z

King James, who was set to become a free agent next summer, will remain in the City of Angels and earn $97 million over the next two years



End of the saga: amid rumors of a departure, LeBron James extended his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for two more years this evening (Wednesday).

King James, whose original contract was set to expire next summer, will receive $97.1 million for two more years with the team, when he will be 40 years old.

The meaning is that LeBron secured himself a profit of 532 million dollars in his playing career, breaking the all-time record held by Kevin Durant.

James could have waited many months to make the decision, but the move was designed to allow his current team a little peace before the start of the season - according to the American commentators.

"The decision to sign for two more years will end the speculation about his future, which would have caused a distraction in the Lakers' season," Sports Illustrated wrote.

"Now the focus is on improving the team."

By all accounts, LeBron is not going to retire anytime soon - so he can play with his son, Brony.

"In my last year I will play with my son," he said a few months ago.

"Wherever Chevron is, there I am too. I will do everything possible to play with him for one season, and it won't be a matter of money."
