Listen: Lebron James, Lakers And Kevin Durant discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"Woodlock wiley? We're joined now by NBA analyst, Jim Jackson and Kenyon Martin. Let's move to Los Angeles. Where the LeBron James era is off to an up and down start with LeBron and the Lakers young court still trying to figure things out before the season it became clear. Other big stars weren't anxious to join James in LA with Paul George decided to stay in. Okay. See Jimmy Butler, leaving the Lakers off his list of trade destinations and Kowa linen expressing more interest in the clippers the Lakers now. Kevin Durant says he understands why telling RIC Bucher quoque. Like young players that are still developing. It's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much demands control the offense, and he creates for everybody so much hype comes from being around the Brown from other people he has so many fan boys in the media. So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. It's not LeBron's fault. At all. Very interesting story and Bleacher report by Rick Bucur and very fascinating comments by Kevin Durant than I kind of agree with. I think it's going to be very difficult to impossible to get particularly another wing player to come and play. Lebron James, I read the story. And I was like Anthony Davis is the only real option for LeBron in LA. I think Kevin Durant has made some sound points and ring Bucur, very tough for them to get a superstar brom-. Yeah. I'm gonna keep this short. Stay high altitude looking LeBron. I don't think the narrative was ever out there that he was a destination for superstars because we never seen happen. We saw him. Join some we saw him come into same time with Chris Bosh, but never landing one place and in the superstar joined LeBron's teams never happened to. The narrative is out there that if you win it's because LeBron if you lose because y'all y'all the problem y'all holding the Brown back, and I think this situation is a gift and the curse the Lakers have shown loyalty to a fault. They gave Kobe two years fifty when they knew he was done. That sounds good. If you Kobe 'Sound good, if you're the Lakers in terms of economics, entertainment, value, this horrible everybody else because they like you gonna ride to the wheels fall off. So what superstars going to be there where they're still going to appreciate LeBron even if he starts to descend and not give that other superstar is proper credit? I think they have this this tough because the demand I said LeBron puts on your own the court and off the court and I'm saying to being their same environment. But like. People eagles getting away. If you a superstar like why not just come situation wanna win? What's wrong with that? What's wrong with join his what if you lose cooking? He's not losing the Bruna has made to the finals every year. As everybody around him better. So you got he makes reputation better who cares about your reputation who who. On ears. Nobody us carriers. We should be here to win basketball kyri sensitive. The way."
