LeBron James agrees to two-year, $85M max contract extension with Lakers

LeBron James has agreed to a two-year, $85M maximum contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers, as reported by Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul.

Fantasy Impact

Fresh off a championship in his 17th NBA season, James gets a two-year max extension that will keep him in Los Angeles at least through the 2022-23 season. James averaged a cool 25.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 10.2 assists in 2019-20. That was the first time in his career he has averaged double digit assists. James will turn 36 on December 30, but has shown no signs of slowing down in what will be his 18th NBA season.

LeBron James notches 40-point double-double in Game 5 defeat

LeBron James dropped a game-high 40 points (15-21 FG, 4-6 FT) while grabbing 13 rebounds, dishing out seven assists, and adding three steals, six triples, and four turnovers across 42 minutes of play in a 111-108 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 5 on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

James went 6-for-9 from beyond the arc, his highest three-point total of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. As evidenced by his gaudy stat line, James played like a man possessed, and when it came down to crunch time, he delivered a perfect pass to Danny Green on a wide-open three-pointer to win the game (and the series), but came up short. James is one win away from his fourth title, but the Heat are not going away. King James' next opportunity to hoist the NBA trophy will come on Sunday for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

LeBron James just misses triple-double in Game 1, drops 25/13/9

LeBron James scored an efficient 25 points (9-17 FG, 2-4 3PT, 5-6 FT) along with a game-high 13 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, and one turnover across 36 minutes in a 116-98 blowout win against the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Fantasy Impact

James was king of the court on Wednesday, falling one assist shy of a triple-double and was the engine of the Lakers offense. The Heat fell victim to several injuries in Game 1 (Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler) but despite the Lakers good fortune, James looks locked in on his quest for a fourth championship. The Lakers will aim to go up 2-0 in the series on Friday.

LeBron James hangs 38-point triple-double as Lakers reach the NBA Finals

LeBron James was magnificent in a Game 5 victory over the Nuggets, scoring a game-high 38 points (15-25 FG, 1-4 3PT, 7-8 FT) with 16 rebounds, 10 assists, and one steal across 40 minutes in a 117-107 win over the Denver Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact

James was possessed since the tipoff, doing just about everything on his quest to another NBA championship. King James joined Oscar Robertson and James Worthy as the only players in NBA playoff history to close out a series with 30+ points, 15+ rebounds, and 10+ assists. James heads to the Finals for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons and will be tough to fade no matter the opponent in the NBA Finals.

LeBron James nears triple-double as Lakers take 3-1 series lead

LeBron James scored 26 points (7-18 FG, 1-3 3PT, 11-14 FT) with nine rebounds and eight assists as the Lakers take a 3-1 series lead over the Rockets with a 114-108 win in Game 4.

Fantasy Impact

James didn't turn the ball over in this one, after doing so six times each of the last two games. As is par for the course, he flirted with a triple-double in Game 4, as he remained active on the defensive glass while trying to get his teammates open looks on the offensive end. James and the Lakers will hope to close things out in Game 5 on Saturday.
