LeBron James Reportedly Not Considering The LA Clippers In 2018 Which Is Good News For Lakers Fans
After the Cavs got crushed by the Warriors in the NBA finals, the LeBron James leaving Cleveland rumors started heating open. The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski gave credence to the rumors when he said this about LeBron contemplating leaving the Cavs for a team in L.A.
Not only is there no guarantee he’s coming back, I’m not sure there’s an expectation he’s re-signing there. I think they feel, I think within Cleveland and around the league, they feel that he’s very much in play to leave again and likely head out west to one of the two LA teams. The Lakers could very well be a target.
Yesterday, The Undefeated’s Mike Wise was on the Freddie And Fitz show on ESPN radio and said LeBron has already ruled out the Clippers.
“I got from a very good authority, a very good authority, that LeBron James will never be a Clipper.
“I can’t tell you who, but I’m going to tell you it’s somebody that knows, and LeBron James will never be a Clipper.
“I don’t know if that’s because he remembers what the Clippers used to be, or he just doesn’t want to put his lot in there, or he thinks Steve Ballmer is just too animated on the sideline.
“Whatever follicles Steve Ballmer has left—and he has more than me—they’re falling out right now. But he’s never going to be a Clipper.”
The Lakers have set themselves up perfectly for a huge 2018 summer which could bring in Paul George and LeBron James. Those two players playing alongside the young core they currently have and Lakers become instant contenders.
