LeBron James ‘Finalizing’ Big Move For Lakers

LeBron James has a leading role with the Los Angeles Lakers and he is now finalizing a big move with the franchise. Is he going somewhere? Of course not. According to Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports, the four-time NBA champion is finalizing a destination to host the annual minicamp prior to regular training camp.

LeBron is just trying to bond with his teammates before the start of the upcoming season. San Diego seems like a perfect destination for the Lakers players, right?

King James will join forces with his teammates, and yes, Russell Westbrook will join the group, too.

“James is finalizing a destination to host the team’s annual minicamp prior to training camp, with San Diego being the likely landing space over Las Vegas, sources said,” Haynes reported. “He’s hoping to build a better rapport with teammates before entering the 2022-23 season.”

Haynes also reported that the king of basketball had a meeting with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and newly-hired head coach Darvin Ham. It was a productive meeting and fans started talking about LeBron’s potential extension.

“And while contract dialogue was broached, the majority of the hour-long meeting was about expressing concerns, and hearing out strategies and opinions to assure there wouldn’t be a repeat of last season’s epic failure, league sources told Yahoo Sports,” Haynes reported. “James, sources said, drilled home the importance of consistent competitiveness and cohesion, noting that last season’s team didn’t give themselves a chance on many nights. The focus for the future Hall of Famer is competing every night in order to give themselves a chance to compete for a championship.

“Ham agreed with James and reiterated that his main objectives are to hold everyone accountable and foster an atmosphere of selflessness, sources said. He voiced that defensive tenacity needs to be picked up all across the roster and also forewarned that players would have to play new roles and if he sensed reluctance, he wouldn’t hesitate to remove them from the game, sources said.”

The Lakers are entering an important season. They have a few more issues to handle and Pelinka is definitely planning his next move. Let’s see what happens in a couple of weeks.
