One similarity that the Lakers will be hoping LeBron brings with him to the franchise over the next four years which he had during his time with the Cavaliers and the Miami Heat is his Finals appearances streak.

"We will continue forward and do all that is necessary to achieve our shared obsession of bringing banner No. 17 to the world's best fans - Lakers Nation", Pelinka added.
