LeBron James, 31, is absolutely elated right now. The four-time MVP has reportedly locked in a multi-million dollar deal with the Cavs, according to USA Today Sports. Although the exact terms haven’t been announced yet, LeBron couldn’t help but share his exciting news in a video on Uninterrupted. “I’m re-signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers and I [couldn’t] be more excited with this opportunity once again man, to defend our crown, defend our title,” he said. “We all know last year was magical, inspiring, all the words you can come up with man. I just can’t wait to get the team, the franchise, and more importantly get everybody together.” AWE!

LeBron led the Cavs to their first-ever title in Cleveland last season, so this must feel pretty special for the stellar NBA star. With his contribution, the Cavs were able to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Championship on June 19. After a super close game, the final score was 93-89, and needless to say — it was an emotional experience for King James. The 6’8 superstar buckled to the floor at Oakland’s Oracle Arena, with tears streaming down his cheeks as he realized that they would be leaving with the trophy that night.
Since LeBron’s monumental win, he’s been enjoying some downtime with his lovely wife Savannah, 27, and their three children LeBron Jr., Bryce and Zhuri. We all got to see LeBron’s family when they rode in the convertible during the epic celebratory parade — so we’re sure they’ll be just as elated about his news! Even though he’s not back on the court yet, the NBA star has been keeping his fitness intact with his high-school sweetheart. It looks like King James is ready for action!
