LeBron James has reportedly been in contact with at least two star NBA players about joining the Lakers.
According to Brian Windhorst, he has already reached out to Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard about joining him in Los Angeles this summer.
LeBron has to recruit early and often, things are dire in Los Angeles. As good as LeBron still is he can’t do it all by himself anymore.
There will be plenty of star players available and joining new teams this off-season.
If LeBron is unable to get a star player or two to join him, then his decision to join the Lakers was for nothing. On the court anyway, he still has all of his off the court distractions.
