Playing with Lebron is toxic: Durant

Playing with Lebron is toxic: Durant

Even the beat writers just fawn over him. Instead of people asking "why couldn't Durant go prove himself elsewhere with the Lakers", people will say, "he couldn't join that toxic situation".

The media attention around James isn't the only reason other National Basketball Association stars might be hesitant to join James in Los Angeles. This source said Ball and Caldwell-Pope were definitely in the deal, but that there was still discussion whether the third player would be Ingram, Josh Hart, or Kyle Kuzma. They were struggling, Bron got the ball, took control, chose to start playing point, doing everything, doing everything. They know what they're going to get out of me.

In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Durant discussed the challenges associated with playing with James.

While Durant's theory certainly makes sense, we won't know if it holds true until next offseason with Kawhi Leonard set to test the open market next winter.

Kevin Durant doesn't necessarily think so. Because Kyle Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offense, and he's not a No. 1 option at all, not even close.

However, speaking ahead of the trip to Everton on Wednesday night, Benitez said he was keen to ignore any off-field distractions. Our plans are to look for the [transfer] targets. "We have been in this position in the past.

But that doesn't mean James, who hasn't missed more than eight games in a season since 2003/04, believes the extra rest will help him much.

"Which, I think, he deserves way more credit for switching his game".

At the same time, the Lakers signed him in order to turn their franchise around and get back to the playoffs, and to do that they need him to play. Kawhi enjoys having the ball in his hands, controlling the offence, dictating the tempo with his post-ups; it's how he plays the game.

Wall is a talented player, but that's a lot of money; money the Lakers will have to save if they want to chase a superstar free agent next summer or pursue a trade for Anthony Davis - another Klutch Sports client - if the opportunity presents itself. "So anytime you play with great players you're going to have to adjust - point blank, period". We want to see how much our young guys can grow and be the best they can be.

Bryant also spoke on how LeBron's approach to his voyage with the Lakers is not conducive to long-term success but that it was needed at this stage in the team's development.
