LeBron James in pole position to be the owner of the Las Vegas expansion franchise

- by

Ric Bucher: LeBron James apparently is in the pole position, to be the owner of the Las Vegas expansion franchise, when Las Vegas and Seattle which I’m told is going to happen as soon as the next TV deals are in place, that those franchises are going to be added to the equation, which has a whole lot of repercussions including the timing of when LeBron decides to step aside and become an owner, rather than a player.

More on this storyline

“I think [projecting Lakers to be a Play-In team] is kind of generous,” Windhorst said on ESPN’s NBA Today. “That’s believing that the Lakers are going to get a mostly healthy season from Anthony Davis and LeBron James. “Unless those two are playing at a very high level, with the roster that they currently have, the Lakers are going to have to be great to get into that playoff situation. -via TalkBasket / August 10, 2022
“The supporting cast that they have assembled is just really kind of haphazard. They have a new coaching staff, they’re going to have a whole bunch of new players and new alignments. “They’re really going to need LeBron and AD to carry them to a bunch of wins in a Western Conference that is going to be highly, highly competitive.” -via TalkBasket / August 10, 2022
Furthermore, the first-year head coach said one wrinkle he will implement and stick with is having the offense run through Anthony Davis, and James concurred, sources said. The team has been encouraged with Davis’ offseason progression and believe he’ll be in optimum shape to avoid serious injuries and carry a heavier load. -via Yahoo! Sports / August 10, 2022
