Lakers Nation. Lakers Podcast: What would it take to convince LeBron James to come to L.A.?

”  Lakers Nation. For the past few years, I have been criticizing LeBron James or let put it this way people have been criticizing LeBron James for playing in a weak conference and accumulating and bragging about going to the final 8 times and winning 3 times with a loosing percentage. let just concentrate at 8 times in the finale because that what most of his fans included journalists want people to know. let forget about playing in a weak conference and a loosing record when getting to the final. the people who like him want people to just concentrate on that and give him the title of the best player ever even thought the majority of people would say not quit there yet . Jordan went to the final 6 times and won all six times and have 6 titles LeBron has 3 but his career still unfolding meaning there is still a chance to surpass Jordan. if he stop today game over. a lot of athletes will tell you I do not read those criticism but let me tell you this, most of the time they lie. they on social media all the time how can they not read our criticism . I am afraid to say they do read them. LeBron James is a business man who reads hour writing so he knows exactly what he needs to do to surpass Michael Jordan because I, in particular has explained it to him  several times . stop playing in a weaker conference and let people give you respect of what you probably deserve. I had told him if Durant goes to the warriors he may not win another championship and I am not far off . and I told him his best chance was to come to the Lakers. Now let imagine for a moment. LeBron James comes west and play for the Lakers a storied franchise who has been struggling for years now. suddenly make the Lakers, a proven bad Lakers teams with most fans in basket not only good but with that wins a championship or two and beat the so call super team. who in the world will doughty denied him the best player in the world title? so LeBron knows exactly what he needs to do to succeed . I have told him that sever times . Now it is his choice to want to follow that path or not.”

LeBron James’ next destination remains at the center of just about any discussion about the NBA and you’ll never guess where the latest rumors have him landing.
Ric Bucher reported that many executives across the league believe he’s already somehow made up his mind and will eventually play for the Los Angeles Lakers.
It’s a prediction that makes almost as much sense as Jim Gray thinking Paul George has done the exact same thing and was ready to announce the big news on live television before quite possibly the biggest fight of the last 50 years.
Spoiler Alert: He did not announce his free agency decision a full year in advance on live television before quite possibly the biggest fight of the last 50 years. continue reading
