The Lakers Should Have Traded LeBron James to New Orleans

The Sports Report Le Bron James has the answer Lakers star Le Bron James controls the ball during a game against the Houston Rockets on Thursday

A video surfaced Monday night of LeBron helping out the superstar rapper while his team was traveling to play the best team in the National Basketball Association for a game that LeBron missed due to "load management".

During the All-Star break, LeBron James ensured fans that he has already activated playoff mode as the Lakers scramble to secure one of the final postseason spots in the West in the second half of the regular season.

James was speaking to the huge media focus on the team potentially missing the playoffs.

"If I'm the Lakers, I would shut LeBron down".

The four-time MVP missed 17 consecutive games after suffering a groin injury on Christmas Day in a road win against the Warriors and there are concerns he might not be fully fit yet.

After the Lakers' loss to the Pelicans on Saturday - with Davis on the bench - James implied the Lakers' inexperience was harming their playoff hopes.

The electoral commission said voting was generally peaceful despite one of its workers being killed by a stray bullet. More than 72 million people had been eligible to vote in Africa's most populous country and largest economy.

James didn't just ooze positivity with the things he said Wednesday, though. I think there's no question about that.

LeBron James totally believes in the Lakers going forward. Over their last five games, the Lakers' defense ranks 28th in opponent scoring (120.8) and field goal percentage (48.7), though some of that is inflated by the rapid pace they're playing at. He also says that "if you're still allowing distractions to affect the way you play, then this franchise isn't for you".

"Like, seriously, if you're distracted by playoff pushes out of all the stuff that's been talked about this year, nah", James continued. Just come and do your job.

Memphis led 105-98 with 1:42 left, but a 3-pointer from Kuzma and a three-point play from James pulled the Lakers within 105-103 with a minute left. That's what you want. If you want to be a guy who doesn't get traded, you've got to step up. "You want to feel like you're fighting for something".

Instead of making up ground in the playoff race, the Lakers have seen their window incrementally shrink. "What we didn't anticipate was that LeBron James would look less than we know LeBron James to be (with the Lakers)".
