Lakers Fans Calls Out Bill Simmons After He Tweeted: “LeBron Loves What He’s Seeing From The Young Cavaliers And Might Want To Finish His Career There”

The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling, and that has given room for speculation as rumors have started to fly around. In year 19, LeBron James is still one of the top players in the NBA, but the production from the players around him is not up to par.

LeBron has said that he loves every player on the current roster despite their early struggles, and is leading by example on the court. Although he endures some poor shooting nights, LeBron still gets it done on both ends of the court. When he is not driving through the lane he is dropping a bullet pass for an assist, or protecting the rim with outstanding chase-down blocks.

Given the current situation of the Lakers, and the success being enjoyed by his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, rumors are starting to circulate that LeBron might be interested in returning to Cleveland to finish his career.

A league executive also stated that it is the worst kept secret, adding that LeBron is not willing to sacrifice his body for the Lakers anymore. According to Ringer founder Bill Simmons:

"We are like 5 days away from the first unsubstantiated “LeBron loves what he’s seeing from the young Cavaliers and might want to finish his career there” story and I honestly can’t wait."

It is a thought many would entertain, as most players want to finish with their hometown club or with the franchise they started their career with. But Lakers fans are not pleased with the comment and have come for Bill.

LeBron's contract with the Lakers will expire after the 2022-23 season, and he will be an unrestricted free agent. It will be up to LeBron to choose where he will play as he will undoubtedly still be in high demand because of his longevity and IQ. Nonetheless, his decision will also be inspired by his son's introduction to the NBA, as he has expressed his desire to play with Bronny.
