LA Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic welcomed LeBron James to Los Angeles, saying the city now had a king to go with a God. Zlatan Ibrahimovic knows he will now have to share the Los Angeles spotlight after LeBron James confirmed that he will be joining the L.A. Lakers.
James, 33, has agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers, it was announced on Sunday. The three-time NBA champion joins the Lakers after two stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a successful spell with the Miami Heat.
James' move has been welcomed by several current and former NBA players and Ibrahimovic joined that group in characteristic fashion.
Ibrahimovic joined the Galaxy in March and has scored nine goals in 12 games for the MLS club. The outspoken star has had to watch from home, however, as Sweden has taken the World Cup by storm. Should they win, they will face either England or Colombia in the quarter-finals.
