LeBron at center has a strong offensive rating but with ADs injury history idk if that’s a good long term strategy long term

My potentially unpopular opinion on the LeBron era in LA.

I need to say this as a lifelong Lakers fan. I honestly dislike the influence LeBron has on his teams. I was a LeBron homer in the earlier parts of his career (I am still to an extent), but I’m beginning to understand some of the dislike.

I have nothing against stars having some influence on the day-to-day goings-on in their respective teams but I feel LeBron's clutch on power is suffocating. The biggest difference between him, Giannis, and Curry are that I feel at the end of the day, Giannis and Curry aren’t the ones with the final decision. With Bron however, I feel he needs to approve of moves even though there are technically people higher than you. I will say it. It's control freak vibes. And I'm a control freak.

I'm grateful for the 2020 ring and LeBron James is certainly the second-best player of all time, but I honestly don't like this iteration of Lakers from a personality standpoint. I feel a lot of guys are chasing a lifestyle much more than committing to the game.

Now obviously you had that in previous iterations, but you can at least tell that Kobe's Lakers and the Showtime Lakers were 110% in trying to give their best basketball. LeBron's Lakers? I have felt sometimes from watching games that basketball is absolutely secondary.

The LeBron Lakers at least in my eyes feel more disconnected than previous eras of Laker teams to the city of LA. It's just the mentality has changed a bit, and the relationship to the city isn't what it was during Kobe's and Magic's tenure.

You may be ready to slander me, but I have felt like I have been watching LeBron basketball these past 4ish years instead of Lakers basketball.

While LeBron has certainly played well for us, apart from the championship year, the majority of his tenure here has been mediocre basketball.

EDIT: I'm not knocking LeBron's commitment to the game. I feel as if he's the only one that cares. But his teammates like AD and Russ, disappoint me to no end. Especially AD.

[LA Times] Shaquille O’Neal on LeBron James “I know what he’s doing. Championships are great, but he’s trying to pass Kareem up. That’s what he is doing. I know exactly what he’s doing. ‘Cause now if you pass Kareem up, it ain’t no talk about who the best player ever is. Think about that? ”

Shaquille O’Neal eased down the steps from the TNT set outside L.A. Live and headed to the green room for dinner after the NBA pregame show on the Bucks and Nets game and Lakers and Warriors at Staples Center, gathering his thoughts about LeBron James’ place in NBA history.

As O’Neal walked and signed autographs Tuesday, he began his conversation by saying that if James passes Hall of Fame member and Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and becomes the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, there would be no doubt that “LeBron is the best player — ever.”

Yes, O’Neal thinks James would surpass the incomparable Michael Jordan, widely considered the best to ever play in the NBA and someone James holds in high regard.

“I know what he’s doing,” O’Neal said while eating some roast beef. “Championships are great, but he’s trying to pass Kareem up. That’s what he is doing. I know exactly what he’s doing. ‘Cause now if you pass Kareem up, it ain’t no talk about who the best player ever is. Think about that? I saw he needed to average [25] points or something like that the next few years, which he will do. He can do that in two more years.”

James began the season Tuesday night against Golden State ranked third in league history in scoring at 35,367 points behind Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) and Karl Malone (36,928).

James averaged 25 points last season and has averaged 27 points through 18 years in the NBA.

If James were to average at least 25 points over the next two seasons, he would pass Abdul-Jabbar sometime during the 2022-23 season, taking about 120 games to do so.

If James keeps that same average this season, he would move past Malone around the 62nd game.

James, who turns 37 in December, has won four titles, one with the Lakers in 2020.

“He’s got four rings and he becomes the highest scorer in the NBA history. He’s the best ever,” O’Neal said. “Ain’t nothing you can say.”

“‘Cause if I would have passed Wilt [Chamberlain] in scoring, you know me. I would have been, ‘I’m the most dominant ever.’ I don’t want to hear [Chamberlain’s] name no more.”

O’Neal, who is eighth all-time in scoring (28,596) behind seventh-place Chamberlain (31,419), laughed.

Out of 15 games played this season, LA Lakers forward LeBron James has scored 30+ 7 times

Just found this stat to be kind of incredible given his age and his injury last year/strain this year. If you take out the 20 minute game in which he left early due to injury, he's scored 30+ in exactly half the games he's played. This level of production is incredible, especially with the flashes of athleticism he continues to show. In fact this is the most points per game he's averaged since his first LA season 3-4 years ago.

None of this should be surprising given it's the same dude who averaged over 31 a game as a 21 year old in his third season, but it gets crazy when you consider that was 16 years ago.

After the Pat Bev trade yesterday, both LA teams do not have a player that is part of their 2017-18 roster. The longest tenured player on the LA teams is LeBron James who joined the Lakers just 3 years ago

The Lakers longest tenured player is LeBron James, acquired via 2018 free agency, has played three full seasons for the Lakers

With the Pat Bev trade, the Clippers longest tenured player is Ivica Zubac, which they acquired from the Lakers during the 2018-19 season

The 2 LA teams now do not have a player on their current roster that is part of their 2017-18 roster (slightly over 3 years ago). Interesting fact, not just the Lakers but now also the Clippers
