Brian Windhorst: ‘LeBron James and Jeanie Buss are in a good place right now’

By HoopsHype
The Lakers just had one of the worst seasons in the history of the franchise. It was so disappointing that that the future of LeBron James in Los Angeles has been questioned. At least for now it seems that the four-time NBA champion views the team in a positive light and believes that it can still be very competitive next year. “From what I understand, LeBron and Jeanie are in a good place right now that despite the frustrations of this season LeBron believes that a few tweaks and some health can actually turn this thing around, and they can be super competitive,” Windhorst said on Get Up. “He is invested, wants to be there.”

In 2001, @Matt Babcock participated in the ABCD Camp alongside LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Deron Williams, etc. Kobe Bryant was guest speaker.
He wrote about his experience (including getting dunked on by @LeBron James) and it’s fascinating: basketballnews.com/stories/abcd-c…6:29 PM

Thursday’s Lakers coach odds, courtesy of @betonline_ag. What jumped out at me isn’t Charles Lee (who they just requested permission to interview) climbing the ranks, but *LeBron* going from a recent 150-1 to 125-1. Does Vegas know something? AK pic.twitter.com/EDzADpO5KH11:37 AM

More on this storyline

“Bronny’s number one on my list” | LeBron On Who He Wants To Play With Most -via YouTube / April 16, 2022
As he has made abundantly clear of late, he’ll do everything he can to play with his son, Bronny Jr., when and if he makes the jump to the NBA (in the summer of 2024, at the earliest). Signing one-year deals is a surefire way to avoid any contractual obstacles to that dream scenario. And if he has to take less than max money at some point to make it happen, then so be it. -via The Athletic / April 12, 2022
What piqued Windhorst’s interest, however, is the prospect of LeBron teaming up with Mavs superstar Luka Doncic in the future: “I would say something else though,” Windhorst said. “As part of this answer, LeBron was having fun here to be clear. He wasn’t making a declarative statement. He talked about how much he admires Luka Doncic, and that is something that you should put in your back pocket. “Don’t ever judge LeBron a hundred percent on his words, judge him on his actions. The best way you can see how LeBron feels about people is who he drafts in his All-Star draft. He has drafted Luka Doncic all three years he’s been an All-Star. He tried to recruit Luka Doncic to his brand within Nike a few years ago. Luka picked the Jordan brand instead. He, I think, would also love to play with Luka.” -via Clutch Points / April 9, 2022
