Lebron James is making good on his hometown-hero status, agreeing to a new deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and becoming the highest paid basketball player in the process.
James made the announcement via Twitter Thursday, telling Bleacher Report’s the Uninterrupted that he was re-signing with “the land.”
“I just want to let y’all know I’m re-signing back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, my hometown team,” James said in the video announcement. “I can’t be more excited than this opportunity once again, man, to defend our crown, defend our title.”
James’s agent Rich Paul told ESPN that he agreed to a three-year, $100 million dollar deal with the Cavaliers, making him the highest-paid player in a single season in NBA history.
