    Will the Lakers struggle to find LeBron a co-star?

      Yes. The reason is that players do not want to join LeBron because they know where he ranks all time. They do not want to elevate him any higher.

      The Lakers need a old school Gm. Maybe a phil Jackson or jerry west due to the fact both know how to get it done in the front office . The buss family needs to let these people on payroll do their jobs (if they have proven they can)

                          Lakers is already a great team! They just need to be healthy. Knock on wood, hopefully there will be no more injuries. And hopefully Durant will be back on the finals series so it will be more interesting season.

                            Funny how these Lebron apologists blame everyone for Lebrons not being able to drive the bus... he’s a bus rider, no one driving the bus no star so these apologists assume the bus is broken blaming the owner... trade Lebron

                                          It's all B.S, Everyone is down on LA because Pelinka & Jeannie didnt want Magic to gut the team for Anthony Davis? I think Adam Silva and the NBA Family want the media to publically be down on the Lakers so they strike out in free agency. They absolutely dont want Kawhi Leonard, Durant, Klay etc going to LA. LA and the Knicks are already the top 2 most valuable franchises, the league don't mind them being down so the small market teams can win and up their values. I think it's all BS the media is in on trashing the Lakers to please the NBA people.

                                                    Fire Pelinka. Although Jerry West isn’t available I’d seek him as a replacement.

                                                                        • Edwardo Cariter

                                                                          • Edwardo Cariter
