Even when he’s not playing, LeBron James is often part of the news. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar missed the 2022 NBA playoffs after his team played terribly all season long, even missing the play-in tournament. After such a horrendous campaign, the Lakers decided to part ways with Frank Vogel and bring in Darvin Ham as their new head coach.
They’re now ready to make some roster changes and see what they can do to improve their level ahead of next season. Every member of their Big 3 has been linked with a move away from Los Angeles since the season ended, but right now, nothing points out that one of them will leave the franchise.
Still, that hasn’t stopped rumors, and LeBron James leaving Los Angeles doesn’t look like a crazy possibility for many people. After he recently claimed he would like to play with the Golden State Warriors, the NBA world started speculating about his words, saying that LeBron might be planning to team up with Stephen Curry soon.
Fox Sports’ analyst Colin Cowherd was one of those people, saying that perhaps LeBron is manifesting a move to the Warriors to have the chance to compete alongside one of his biggest rivals, Stephen Curry. He mentioned that LeBron didn’t hesitate to move on from his old franchises, and that could happen to the Lakers, too (6:55).
