LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. The idyll that began 4 years ago could turn into a rough separation in the coming weeks or in the summer of 2023. Indeed, the future of King James in California would greatly depend on Russell Westbrook and the presence of The Brodie in the next regular season. Explanations.
James james has nothing left to prove, having won four NBA championship rings and placing second in all-time leading scorers in NBA history behind Kareem Abdul Jabbar and his 38,387 career points. As it will blow out its 38th candle next December, James james does not seem ready to retire yet and is still looking to put a fifth NBA champion ring on his fingers, like the legend of his current franchise, Kobe Bryant. Nonetheless, it could be that King James does not drag on among Lakers if a size change was not made.
LeBron James on the way out?
The journalist Dave McMenamim recently told Lowe Post that James james didn’t expect to see Russell Westbrook next season. A regular season would have been enough for the one who is nicknamed King James to know that it needs to move on and it’s time for the California franchise to trade Russell Westbrook for the good of the franchise. “It’s crystal clear that LeBron has seen enough and has no desire to be a teammate with Russell Westbrook for another season.”
Unlike James, the Lakers coach does not turn his back on Westbrook
However, it could be that the new head coach of the Lakersto know Darvin Hamwhich succeeded Frank Vogel, thwart the plans of James james with the The bone Angeles Lakers. “My idea is to give him a chance, to see how he does in the Darvin Ham system, with the principles of Darvin Ham. To see that, before you start clearing it”. What does this mean for the LeBron James sequel?

LeBron James can dump everything if Westbrook doesn’t leave
Journalist for The Athletic, Jovan Buha dwelled at length on the situation of James james and on what the future may hold for the franchise player of The bone Angeles Lakers. In comments reported by Let’s Talk Basketball, Buha asserted that sports results will dictate the future of james within Angelinosin the same way as the decision of the Lakers with Russell Westbrook. “I can’t say this season will be LeBron’s last at the Lakers, but I think a lot will come down to Russell Westbrook and sports results. If the leaders do not activate and the season is once again poor, LeBron will leave the Lakers next summer. But I expect Westbrook to be traded at some point during the summer.”
Kyrie Irving to fill LeBron James?
Still according to the sources of the journalist of The Athletic, Jovan Buhathem The bone Los Angeles Lakers could catch up with James james if a player of the caliber of Kyrie Irving landed in the city of angels and always in words relayed by Let’s Talk Basketball. “I think they can get a Buddy Hield or a Kyrie Irving back in the deal, or at least a package of that caliber, which will be enough to satisfy LeBron and make sure he stays next year. And if they can’t get Hield or Irving back, we might have to think about shelving Westbrook, like the Rockets were able to do with John Wall.
