Kevin Durant Rips 'Toxic' Coverage Surronding LeBron James

Kevin Durant Rips 'Toxic' Coverage Surronding LeBron James

It was just last summer when John Wall signed an extension with the Wizards that will pay him a total $207 million through 2023.

In a Bleacher Report piece trying to understand if and why fellow stars are shying away from playing alongside LeBron James, Durant offered enlightening answers not only about James, but perhaps his own priorities. Building around a player such as James has many perks, including the potential to be crowned National Basketball Association champions at some point while he's on your roster. It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word. Because Kyle Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offense, and he's not a No. 1 option at all, not even close. He cited Chris Bosh during James' stint with the Miami Heat and Kevin Love during James' second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers a two prime examples. That's what's most important to me. He can't be traded until at least December 15, and sources said there had been no request made by James to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka to make a deal for his friend. "LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game - and shooters. Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody". It has led to a lot of questions about how long he will want to carry a Lakers team with younger players in key positions - as well as one with some inconsistent older players. If that's what 33 gets you, Look out for what happens when he's 34. He's earned that, but he's human.

Suns forward Trevor Ariza said players similar to James, like Leonard and Thunder forward Paul George, could possibly be marginalized if they join the Lakers. We've been playing so well at home, so we wanted to try to continue that.

Trump optimistic despite haze around China trade
Kudlow said he did not think that vehicle tariffs were imminent, though he added that they were in Trump's "quiver of arrows". Chinese society should maintain a calm attitude", it said.

"I'm past the personal stage", James said. So I don't really.

Though you wouldn't know it from looking at his stats or watching any given Lakers game, LeBron James isn't the spry, headband-wearing teenager that we fell in love with in the mid 2000s. "He's a victor and he's an incredible player and he's unselfish", he said.
