What does that even mean?

He makes all the passes he should be making, some guys need to look in the mirror before running that loser mentality crap.


South Bay Lakers to the rescue!!

Well, that's exactly why they lost trust. Why would anyone trust a teammate who was actively trying to get them all traded?

Kobe did same to Bynum
Even literally said it out loud on camera
And Bynum didn’t whine like a little (bleep)
He stepped up and became an all star
Not his fault he had bad knees that’s genetics

But players should step up
Respond
Become invaluable

Ingram to his credit did that

Hahahahaha. Too many followers in here. Also listening to the media. The media hates LA and is afraid of their dominance. So you youngsters understand, we would have had "NO CHANCE" to land AD without Lebron. Notice Popazit starts crying and getting involved when the Lakers are about to land another superstar.

But you want to ship him out because someone else said. Think for yourselves LGers.

Lebron and his klutch posse are the reason they likely will NOT end up with AD.

exactly. As soon as Popovich starts calling his colluding cabal of coaching alumni to try and stop it then you know theyre worried about the move.

I aint sweating the AD trade though, I dont think he's actually all that reliable or skilled. he'd be awesome on lakers though if played all the games

That's why I never respected Popovich. Biggest whining coach in the league. He just had to protest that Fisher 0.4 call too. Lol

LeBron is a basketball disease...

Never seen one player associated with so much turmoil.

Scoring wasn’t a problem, defense was. Only it wasn’t all on Lebron.

Get the right players around him and the Lakers will win. That's not on him. The front office needs to do their job.

I drop the BS flag on this one.

Lebron isn't their buddy. He isn't their dad. He's not their life coach.

He's a superstar who wants the best possible team around him.

Ingram, Ball, Kuz, etc. have to be pretty naive if they thought Lebron wouldn't push for any of them to be traded if they had a chance at a MVP level player.

And, heck, why wouldn't the Lakers trade any of them if they could improve the team? That's just a part of the business these guys work in. If they have trouble accepting that, they're in for a rough time

Different. Bynum has the front office behind his back.

I agree with what you are saying. I don’t know how old you are. But these players don’t have a mature mindset yet. When you are the GM you need to take this into account. You can’t expect to think like journeyman veterans

I'm still amazed that Bynum is only 31....and hasn't been in the NBA in 5 seasons....his career came and gone before the age of 26.

I agree with that. There's two points.

1. Ainge in Boston handled this situation well. When Tatum and Brown were in the AD rumors, Ainge said: “Yes I do have to speak to players about rumors. Sometimes they come to me and I tell them the truth. Sometimes I reach out if a guy is in a rumor and I tell them what’s going on. I have reached out to them. I try and educate them on the basketball world." I am not sure if Magic did anything like that because he's a BSer.

2. None of this is Lebron's responsibility. As the team's superstar, Lebron is going to be called on to comment about his teammates, and he is going to have to say the standard thing about what great potential they have, etc. But it's not his role to keep them abreast of how things state regarding trades.

Report: Lakers teammates became distrustful of LeBron James over Anthony Davis trade talks

Quote:
The Lakers’ reported trade talks loomed over the team roster. Virtually every member of the young core had been linked to a trade for Davis, as had veterans Rondo and Beasley.

Per the report, this is when players began to distrust James.

A schism developed in the locker room. Sources around the team said it was apparent that the young players no longer trusted James, believing he was operating behind the scenes to get them traded to New Orleans.

The Lakers ended the February trade deadline with their young core intact.

The report goes on to describe a tentative deal the Lakers had in place to acquire forward Jabari Parker as well as how president of basketball operations Magic Johnson is seen as an “absentee executive.”

The off-season has officially begun. As there is no reason to talk about games anymore, we are all entering the drama-only period.

If this is even true. Let’s not forget that he and Kuz - for example - have become fashion BFFs in the last few weeks literally dressing alike like a literally dressing alike LOL

There were also reports that Brown and Lonzo got close throughout the whole BBB fiasco over the last few weeks

It is definitely not Lebron’s fault. Lebron can’t support the young players because he is the main reason why Magic goes all in. He can act he is innocent but his relationship with Magic would be very awkward.
