Blaze Pizza is celebrating the arrival of new L.A. Lakers player LeBron James by throwing a "pizza party" in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, complete with - of course - free pizza. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.

The signing kicks off the "LAbron" era in Tinsletown as the world's best all-around player begins work restoring the storied Lakers franchise to glory.

"He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful", the statement continued. "It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals".

Kobe's time away from the game coupled with being 39 years old isn't a good combination for a guy trying to get back the magic he once had for one final season.

James, who won league MVP awards in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013, has played in 1,143 career regular-season games (1,142 starts) for Cleveland and Miami, averaging 27.2 points, 7.4 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Her cynical behaviour was blasted amid accusations he had claimed a point she knew did not belong to her. "It doesn't matter. The match stopped for about ten minutes when Cibulkova hit a return back to Hsieh and challenged the linesman's call of out.

James' representatives at Klutch Sports Group tweeted a photo of James signing his contract with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka.

Lebron James is officially a Laker now. "We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation".

The Lakers, who dominated the National Basketball Association in the 1980s behind the brilliance of Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and again in the early 2000s with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal, have missed the playoffs the last five seasons.

The Akron, OH, native has been named an NBA All-Star in each of the last 14 seasons, earning First Team All-NBA honors on 12 occasions, including the last 11 consecutive seasons.

For example, perhaps no coach had a worse summer than Tyronn Lue, who was "shocked and hurt" when LeBron James left the Cavaliers in free agency.
