LeBron James seems happy with the Lakers’ roster for the upcoming NBA season; in fact, league legends like John Stockton have been linked to the forward’s influence on the front office.
Indeed, whoever was selected as the 75 best players in NBA history did not bite his tongue during the “DNP-CD” show’s podcast, saying that the four-time MVP of the regular season and league finals, he usually plays in many situations. In the currency of talent, he refuses to try and win with a team he has to start from scratch.
“I like it when players are all in and saying, ‘You know what? Let’s go to work. We’ve got to get better, play harder. We’ve got to play smarter.’ Instead of ‘I’m going to go’ to a Where there’s more talent and win championships.’ That devalues it because you’re not climbing a mountain, you’re taking a helicopter to the top,” John Stockton said in a clear reference to LeBron James.
It must be remembered that “The King” won his first two rings (2011-2012, 2012-2013) with the Miami Heat with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh; Returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016 and led them to the championship. Two other standouts at the time, like Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, joined the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018 and led the team to the league championship two years later, with Anthony Davis as his Attendant.
Similarly, John Stockton, the NBA’s lifetime assist leader, who has played for the Utah Jazz and has been selected to the All-Star Game 10 times, also believes that LeBron James’s influence on the Lakers in the current summer market has been greatly enhanced.
