Kawhi Leonard Not Enamored With Idea Of Playing With LeBron James

Kawhi Leonard Not Enamored With Idea Of Playing With LeBron James

LeBron could reasonably decide that joining the Houston Rockets' two superstars on the team that nearly knocked off Golden State offers him his best chance to get a ring, in spite of the questionable fit both money-wise and style-wise.

According to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, LeBron has texted KD about coming to Los Angeles but the reigning, two-time NBA Finals MVP isn't interested in breaking up the Golden State Warriors.

The two sides are said to believe a deal for Leonard would likely convince LeBron James to join the Purple and Gold.

While the Lakers had once seemed like a front-runner for Leonard, a Los Angeles native, once he hit free agency, that was also previously the case with George. I also have no interest in telling fans how to feel or how they should react to the possibility of James leaving to play for another team - at least, how they should react internally.

That's all we've got at the minute, but it's the most progress we've had in a year or so. "I'm glad he's on our team".


LeBron James #23, Kyrie Irving #11 and Kevin Durant #35 of Team LeBron all look on against Team Curry during the NBA All-Star Game as a part of 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend at STAPLES Center on February 18, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

James finished second to Houston's James Harden in the race for the NBA MVP Award, as the Rockets guard picked up 86 first-place votes and 15 second-place tallies on the way to 965 points.

Both James and Oladipo shone in the series which went the full seven game distance.

"He's incredible", Nance Jr. said after The Finals. Was it the coaching changes or the GM change, or, I don't know. "Just from being here, the way he treats us, his teammates, everybody associated with the Cavs, he's much more than just a great basketball player".
