Since All-Star forward LeBron James inked a four-year, $153 million deal to join the Los Angeles Lakers, there has been around the organization about what may lie ahead over the next few seasons.
James has brought more excitement and realism to move after posting photos and video on Instagram of him working out at the Lakers’ practice facility located in El Segundo on Tuesday morning. (h/t Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints)

This is the first time that James has posted anything showing that he has been to the team’s practice facility since the move. It’s another part of the process that he can enjoy the vicinity that is entering the second year in usage that he looks like he will be utilizing quite a bit this upcoming season.
The addition of James has given an entirely new feel and level of excitement around the franchise that hasn’t been there in quite some time with the team missing the playoffs in each of the last five seasons. The four-time league MVP is still playing some of the best basketball of his career heading into his 16th season in what will be his first time playing in the Western Conference.
There will be a tall task ahead of him trying to navigate the Lakers through the conference that is filled with talented teams that should lead to a crowded push for the playoffs next season. Nonetheless, James’ presence has set the table for what should be an even more enticing 2018-19 campaign in Los Angeles.
