LeBron James is widely considered one of the greatest players in NBA history. He is frequently compared to Michael Jordan in debates over the greatest basketball player ever. The big question remains about his future in LA.
King James has been going through a few struggles with the Los Angeles Lakers this season. The realize this rough patch is upon them, and despite James’ solid performances, the team is still struggling to get anything going. It had many feeling like LeBron is about to be fed up with the purple and gold.
With the Lakers losing three straight games, there are some fans out there who are theorizing about whether or not LeBron will force his way out of Los Angeles. The theories have been pretty wild. And even Kendrick Perkins has joined in on the fun as he fantasized about LeBron forcing a trade back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Shams Charania of The Athletic was on The Pat McAfee Show, where he addressed all of the wild theories surrounding the Lakers superstar. Charania essentially said that nothing is going to happen, and that even LeBron’s agent Rich Paul has stepped in to address the situation.
“I heard directly from Rich Paul that LeBron James isn’t leaving the Lakers. This team just doesn’t look it has the young legs that they need to have & they have been very active in the trade market.”
If you’re a Lakers fan, this is obviously good news. Although it remains ridiculous that Paul had to say anything at all. If the Lakers somehow miss the playoffs, however, then maybe LeBron will actually have to reconsider.
