The playoffs are not over yet but it seems like LeBron is busy trying to recruit players to LA.

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst LeBron has already been in contact with Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler about playing in Los Angeles.

From what I understand, he has already begun the recruiting process,” Windhorst said. “I’ve heard he’s had contact with Kawhi Leonard. I’ve heard he’s had contact with Jimmy Butler. There’s no tampering enforcement by players. And while Magic Johnson, the guy who got in trouble for tampering before, is no longer there, LeBron is ‘tamperer in chief’ of the Lakers right now. The thing about it is, I don’t know if texts and calls, and maybe a dinner with LeBron, is enough for the Lakers to overcome their hurdles that they’re gonna have.”

The Internet had a good laugh at LeBron recruiting Butler and Kawhi considering the current state of the Lakers.
