LeBron James Recruiting Warriors Stars To Join With Next Summer

LeBron James has been linked to several players and NBA analysts believe that he is actually recruiting players to the Los Angeles Lakers. The four-time NBA champion wants Stephen Curry and Draymond Green to join him on Team USA in 2024.

King James hasn’t won any gold since 2012. Shams Charania and Vardon from The Athletic claim that the king of basketball will use the 2024 Olympics as his last chance.

“LeBron James, a three-time Olympian, two-time gold medalist and the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, has so strong an interest in one more Olympics that he is ready to commit for next summer and has also called multiple stars to essentially recruit them to join him with USAB in Paris, multiple league sources told The Athletic.

“James has spoken to Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum and Draymond Green, and they are all prepared to commit as well. Separately, Phoenix’s Devin Booker, Portland’s Damian Lillard, Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox and Dallas’ Kyrie Irving also have serious interest in committing, league sources said.

“James’ effort started well before the USA World Cup team, led by Anthony Edwards and Mikal Bridges, lost at the World Cup and was not related to whether this summer’s team won or lost. While the American national team has struggled at the last two World Cups, the program has won four consecutive golds at the Olympics.”

LeBron could work well with the Warriors star

Curry won two golds in 2010 and 2014 and Green did tw0 as well. Team USA didn’t have much chance this time but Steve Kerr did his best to lead his team to a title.

Imagine LeBron and Curry joining forces on the basketball court. LeBron has already said that he wants to play with the Warriors star.

“The game has been globalized over the last 30 years. These games are difficult. This is not 1992 anymore. Players are better all over the world. Teams are better. It’s not easy to win the World Cup or the Olympics,” Team USA and Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after losing to eventual World Cup champion Germany in the semifinals over the weekend.
