LeBron Is Wrong Superstar for Lakers!


Watching LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers struggle in the playoffs brings into harsh focus one of the overlooked realities of King James’ game, namely that LeBron does not actually make the players around him better.

There’s a reason Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland, why Kevin Love can’t be the superstar he was in Minnesota, why Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr. haven’t contributed, and why the Los Angeles Lakers should respectfully pass on pursuing and signing LeBron James as a free agent this summer. Contrary to what many pundits continue to claim, LeBron James is not an easy player to play with nor a player who makes those around him better.
