REPORT: LeBron James Has Ruled Out Playing For One of The LA Teams
Last week, the Los Angeles Clippers lured Jerry West away from the Golden State Warriors, agreeing to pay him $4M-$5M per year in hopes that he could possibly land LeBron James in free agency after the 2017-2018 season.
Well, the Clippers can officially cross James’ name off their wish list, because he doesn’t plan on ever wearing a Clippers jersey. That’s the word from Mike Wise of the Undefeated, who stated so via the Freddie & Fitz radio show.
“I got from a very good authority, a very good authority, that LeBron James will never be a Clipper.
“I can’t tell you who, but I’m going to tell you it’s somebody that knows, and LeBron James will never be a Clipper.
“I don’t know if that’s because he remembers what the Clippers used to be, or he just doesn’t want to put his lot in there, or he thinks Steve Ballmer is just too animated on the sideline.
“Whatever follicles Steve Ballmer has left—and he has more than me—they’re falling out right now. But he’s never going to be a Clipper.”
With Blake Griffin and Chris Paul opting out recently, the Clippers are looking to return right back to their losing ways. Suddenly they don’t look like such a hot destination for incoming free agents.
