The Los Angeles Lakers have yet to reach their full potential and a huge trade rumor suggests that LeBron James could be on his way out. The four-time NBA champion fueled these rumors with another cryptic tweet.
“Make a Play (M.A.P)” LeBron wrote.
Oh yes, this was more than enough for fans to start speculating. One of his 50 million followers wrote that these words are actually lyrics of a song from the artist Jerreau. Here’s more of it, “First they love you then hate you, then they love you again. The same ones burning your jersey the same ones cheering again.”
There were also fans who wrote that LeBron should have written “Make a Trade.”
LeBron made some shocking comments about the front office in December and he was far from unhappy with the fact that his team struggles to win.
“I’m a winner and I want to win,” LeBron said. “And I want to win and give myself a chance to win and still compete for championships. That has always been my passion, that has always been my goal since I entered the league as an 18-year-old kid out of Akron, Ohio.
“I don’t wanna finish my career playing at this level from a team aspect. I still want to compete for championships. I know what I can bring to any ball club with the right pieces.”
Lakers will think twice before agreeing to a trade rumor, LeBron has serious workload
Age has nothing on LeBron and averages 29.8 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 7.0 assists for the 2022-23 NBA season. What about his workload? He averages 36.3 minutes per game and played 40-plus in three of the last eight games.
“I feel bad about that. He’s playing at an amazing level. But we can’t run him into the ground. That was one of my main goals coming into this season,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said after a loss to the Kings on Wednesday. “We just have to manage him and have clarity in terms of scaling back his minutes some.”
The Lakers are the No. 13 seed in the Western Conference and their record is bad. LeBron can’t be happy with a 20-25 record, right?
