Chris Paul has the world watching him as he tried to lead the Phoenix Suns to an NBA Finals victory, but LeBron James is also watching. The idea of adding another star to the Lake Show has not been lost on King James, and he’s all about getting Paul on that squad.
The Space Jam 2: A New Legacy star might have seen his Lakers squander an NBA Playoffs spot in the first round, but he’s far from finished. James was recently seen at one of Bronny’s games throwing up one brick after another.
Chris Paul is up there in years at 36-years-old and over a decade on the professional court. The idea of him joining up with friend LeBron James is something that pleases King James. Some might see them as bitter rivals, but that could change if Paul put on Laker gold.
While on the Jimmy Kimmel Show recently, LeBron James was asked by guest host Arsenio Hall about adding Paul to the Lakers’ roster. This received a favorable response.
“Of course you’d love to play with your friend. We’d love it,” Hall said. Then LeBron replied: “Absolutely. Absolutely. Absolutely.”
We’ll have to see if that can happen. Either way, the Lakers need to do something different, because falling apart in the postseason was not what any of their diehard fans wanted to see. If anything, it will give them something to work harder for next season.
