Kevin Durant Talks About Issues Superstar Players Could Face Joining LeBron James

The Lakers have been patient with their young core and it's worked out for them so far, but there are rumors that they're looking to pair James with five-time All-Star John Wall and Lonzo Ball could be a casualty of that trade. "So anytime you play with great players you're going to have to adjust - point blank, period". For the Lakers' case, let's hope it's just smoke.

"They will figure it out", Bryant said. "So, it's a balancing act". He's got a bad contract that doesn't even start until next season, but maybe playing in LA and next to LeBron would help the All-Star guard play like a max player on both ends of the floor. "So, enjoy the journey because we'll be champions before you know it, and then we'll just be laughing at all the Warrior fans who all of the sudden came out of nowhere".

This is one of those situations where everyone is pretty much right.

"I don't know what asking me to do too much is, to be honest", James said following practice on Tuesday. So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. We want to see how much our young guys can grow and be the best they can be. Though he said he did understand why people - including Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant - would have their concerns. There are certainly reasons to be managing LeBron's workload wisely.

So his talents benefit more from a guy who can pass and penetrate and get him open.

"It doesn't matter", James explained.

"I work myself all year round to get in tip-top shape all year round", he added. "I don't stop. So I can do whatever".

However, the 16-year veteran played all 82 games for the first time in his career last year during the Cavs' run to the Finals.

"Why wouldn't you want to play with LeBron?" Despite being in his 16th season, the forward is putting up 27.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game. They'll carry a 14-9 record into that matchup.
