LeBron James has never lost this much in his career and it has led to rumors that he may be headed out of L.A. fairly soon.
The Los Angeles Lakers have already been eliminated from playoff contention by not qualifying for the play-in tournament, so now speculation has come in as to what will happen with the roster over the summer.
James recently commented on HBO’s “The Shop” about how the one superstar he’d love to play with is Stephen Curry. During Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s Get Up, Windhorst floated the idea of LeBron trying to team up with Luka instead.
“The best way you can see how LeBron feels about people is who he drafts in his All-Star draft. … He’s drafted Luka Doncic all three years he’s been an All-Star,” Windhorst said.
During the offseason, Lebron spoke about why he keeps taking Luka in the All-Star draft.
“Because I love everything about his game. Love everything about him,” LeBron explained. “The way he plays the game reminds me of the way I play the game. We’re just triple threats. We rebound, we pass, which is the No. 1 thing on our mind, trying to keep our teammates engaged and trying to keep our teammates feeling good on the floor, keeping our teammates in rhythm, and we’ll put 40 on you, too, when you disrespect us.”
