As the Los Angeles Lakers flounder in the latter stages of the 2018-19 season, there appears to be some division between LeBron James and the organization.
According to Brandon Robinson of Heavy.com, James wants the Lakers to sign Carmelo Anthony during the buyout period. But the Lakers want to go in another direction.
“LeBron’s camp is insisting on the front office signing Melo,” a league source with knowledge of the Lakers told Robinson via text message Wednesday afternoon. “But the team wants to go in a different direction.”
On top of the recent video evidence showing James really seems to have checked out right now, this isn’t a great look.
