The Lakers Made A Mistake Signing LeBron James

The Lakers Made A Mistake Signing LeBron James

It is now time for the team to shut down the significant players for the rest of the year (LeBron James, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball). Back to back losses to bottom placed Phoenix Suns, followed by 113-105 loss to Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers now have a 30-34 record and sit five 5.5 games behind San Antonio Spurs; the eight-placed team.

With just 18 games left in the regular season, it would take a historical push in the last month of the season for the Lakers to break through.

Anyone who's watched Zubac play this season knows the potential he has and the talent he already possesses, making the Lakers' decision to trade him all the more baffling. But denying Walton an opportunity to at finish out a season wrought with drama and distraction since James's first dribble in purple and gold would be cruel and needless.

James however told ESPN that he had no intention of reducing his minutes on court following Monday's 113-105 defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"The injuries are catching up a bit", Lakers head coach Luke Walton said after Monday's game. With the Minnesota Timberwolves and New Orleans Pelicans both within a game of the Lakers, they could very well end up looking at slightly better chances to land a top lottery pick. They need to come up with a plan of their own of leading the franchise to glory, one that is obviously build around LeBron, but one that is not "all about LeBron".

"He hasn't been awful, but it hasn't been his best season by any means".

There has been some speculation as to whether James will sit once the Lakers are eliminated.

Lakers guard Reggie Bullock sank a long step-back jumper at the buzzer to cut the deficit to 91-85 entering the fourth, but the Clippers scored the first four points of the fourth to take their first double-digit lead.

"I haven't been a part of a season with this amount of injuries to all our key guys", LeBron James said as quoted by ClutchPoints.

"Continue to be a professional, and be as great as you can be every single night, no matter the circumstances", James said.

Starting with Wednesday night's matchup against the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers still have to play the top two teams in each conference - the Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors in the West and the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors in the East.
