Jeff Van Gundy had a not so bright idea. 

The former coach and current ABC/ESPN analyst was speaking to a national audience during the Lakers’ loss, their fifth in a row, to the Boston Celtics on Saturday night.

The exchange between Van Gundy and fellow analyst Mark Jackson went like this:

Van Gundy: I think in the offseason, they [Lakers] need to rebuild this roster, right? And to me, it could be a trade for an Anthony Davis, or I think they need to explore trading LeBron for getting as much as they can.

Jackson: What are you doing, seriously? No, seriously, what are you doing?

Van Gundy: You’ve got to get on the right timeline. I’m going to say, if I could trade him for the Clippers into cap space, which would give me a better chance to get Durant or Kawhi Leonard, would I not do that?

Jackson: OK, LeBron James is not getting traded. OK?

Van Gundy: You’ve got to put everything on the table.

Jackson: No, you can’t.

Some agree with this crazy line of thinking. 

The Lakers will never trade LeBron. 

End of story.
