LeBron James becomes highest-paid NBA player in history

LeBron James, a prominent player for the Los Angeles Lakers, has agreed to a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension until the 2024–2025 campaign.

Rich Paul, CEO of Klutch Sports, claims that James is now the highest-paid player in NBA history thanks to this league-maximum contract. His new contract includes a player option that would enable him to remain with the Lakers after turning 40 in December 2024.

The 37-year-old James’ most recent deal with the Lakers, who signed the four-time NBA MVP and four-time league champion in July 2018, is approaching its final year. The 18-time All-Star will receive $46.7 million this season thanks to the new contract.

ALSO CHECK:Ghanaians will start paying extra for energy and water today.

In the course of the upcoming season, assuming no injuries, James will likely surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. If James and Anthony Davis are able to recover in good condition from an injury-plagued 2021–22 season that concluded without a playoff berth, James and the Lakers still aim to be in the running for another championship.

James now has the chance to help the Lakers establish themselves as true legends. During the Covid-19 pandemic-affected season of 2019–20, he notably guided the Los Angeles team to NBA Championship triumph, but the subsequent two seasons have been unsuccessful.

James was a teammate of former NBA forward and 2016 NBA Champion Richard Jefferson when they both played for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jefferson thinks James needs to accomplish more to be regarded as a legend while wearing the purple and gold of the Lakers.

LeBron James hasn’t accomplished enough as a Laker, according to Jefferson, to be included on that list. This is Bron’s fourth season, right? He’s been there now, you know. They have spent four seasons there. They have missed the postseason for the past two years. They were eliminated in the first round once. They also won a title one year.

If James is successful in becoming one of the Lakers’ greatest players, he will join the likes of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Jerry West and Wilt Chamberlain.

Gospel Artiste, Joseph Matthew Exonerated Over Black Stars’ Loss

The Black Stars were eliminated from the 2022 football Mundial after losing by 2 -O to Uruguay in their final match of the group stages. The Black Stars team was together in group H with Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay. The Stars had then managed to pick up 3 points in two games , losing narrowly to Portugal before dispatching South Korea 3-2 in the Second game.

The Black Stars then needed a win or a draw to automatically ticket them to  the round of 16. Prior to the match, Joseph Matthew who is noted with the hit song ‘Blessed’, cautioned the Ghanaian team to remain disciplined and focused till the end of the game.
According to the ‘Blessed’ hitmaker, the Stars will lose to Uruguay if they play like how they did in their first two games. In a post on his social media pages, Joseph Matthew said:

“WE MUST KEEP OUR DISCIPLINE!
The truth of the whole matter is, Ghana will lose this game if we go in as we did our last 2 games. We must keep our composure and discipline throughout! We have not done this in our first 2 games, but this must change ASAP if we are to have any real success in this competition.

Suarez is not our problem. We lack discipline and composure. That has to change in this game period! Big up @blackstarsofghana_ we have more than enough quality to win this one, but we must keep the DISCIPLINE AND COMPOSURE FOR 90 MINUTES!!”.

In vindication to what he said, the Black Stars lost the game. Although the Stars were awarded a penalty by the referee, unfortunately, Captain Dede Ayew who volunteered to take the penalty had it saved by the Uruguay goalkeeper who went in the right direction to deny Ghana a goal.

Giorgian de Arrascaeta’s two goals for Uruguay were also not enough to take them through to the next round of the tournament as together with the Black Stars were eliminated from this year’s world cup.

Below is Joseph Matthew’s post.

The Ghana Blackstars team has since their exit received great backlashes from Ghanaians and fans of the team. Many are those who believe the coach of the team, Otto Addo should be blamed.
