Lakers Considered Long Shot To Land LeBron James

Just in case you were thinking about placing an order for a LeBron James Los Angeles Lakers jersey, you may want to spend your money on something else.

James signing with the Lakers in free agency this summer is a “long shot”, according to a report from Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Rumors have connected James and Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul, who are close friends, and their desire to play with one another before their careers are over.

“League sources called the concept that James and Paul want to spend their golden years as teammates an overstated assumption.”

If James and Paul are to end up on the same team, it appears the Houston Rockets may be the way to make that happen.
