Los Angeles Lakers: Starting LeBron James at center is not an option

Right now, McGee, Ivica Zubac and possibly Mortiz Wagner are the Lakers’ only options at center. This has prompted many to suggest that LeBron James see time at center, which quite frankly, is not a bad idea.

What is a bad idea, however, is starting James at the five and expecting him to make the transition into a productive center in the league. Sure, James is the most talented player on the court and today’s NBA is built for him to make a transition of this caliber.

However, this is only going to cause more issues than it creates and should be saved exclusively for the right situations.
