Why LeBron James should sign with the Los Angeles Lakers

Paul George on LeBron joining the Thunder: 'That's up to LeBron'

Latest LeBron update spells bad news for Rockets

James has a huge decision to make over the next few weeks ahead of his upcoming free agency.

If James teams up with Paul George with a team such as the Los Angeles Lakers, or even the Sixers, Vice Sports' Michael Pina believes that Damian Lillard would be an ideal fit.

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported Friday that Lonzo Ball could potentially be used as a trade chip to acquire James from the Cavaliers. One such person who subscribes to this theory is Shaquille O'Neal, who understands first hand that trying to spend the end of your professional career accumulating championships isn't necessarily the best idea.

"He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark - he has three rings", O'Neal continued.

The 33-year-old now looks set to depart Cleveland for the second time in his career as he could potentially become a free agent this summer and join a team capable of challenging the Warriors.

I was talking with my Dad when we mentioned the possibility of how Golden State can get better this off season. So I got four. But, Shaq warns that if Lebron is thinking of venturing off in search of broadening his legacy, there is no point. "So LeBron's book is already set", O'Neal said. "So I was trying to make quick stops to get it. Phoenix, Cleveland, Boston". That's a very different team: Kyrie Irving, Paul George, and LeBron James. His mentality now is probably is: I want to get four before Steph [Curry] does. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter. He can hit free agency this summer if he declines the player option on his contract with the Cavaliers. It's just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages.

James led the Cavs in the 2017-18 season nearly single-handedly before getting swept by the Golden State Warriors in four games in the 2018 NBA Finals. James now only has three championship rings to his name, three less than Michael Jordan, yet some fans are okay overlooking King James' lack of rings as the rest of his career more than makes up for it. You have three superstars on one team that actually play the right way.
