LeBron James Discusses Lakers Being Well Represented In 2020 NBA All-Star Game

It has been a long time, but the Los Angeles Lakers finally resemble the glamorous and winning franchise the sports world has grown accustomed to seeing.

After another impressive win, this one coming at the expense of the Brooklyn Nets, the Lakers have moved to 36-9 and already clinched the best record in the Western Conference going into the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend.

LeBron James was named one of the team captains for the game but when asked about what he is looking forward to the most, he brought up sharing the experience with Anthony Davis, via Spectrum SportsNet.

LeBron James Believes Lakers ‘Have Enough’ To Win 2020 NBA Finals

The 2019-20 NBA trade deadline is fast approaching on Feb. 6 and LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be one piece away from being not only championship contenders, but favorites.

That piece could come via trade, free agency, and the buyout market. However, the general consensus remains the Lakers need one more piece.

For the Lakers, they believe that piece is a backup point guard and there are several ways they could go about getting that. They could try and muster up the assets to trade for Derrick Rose or they could try and lure Darren Collison out of retirement, something that has been in talks since early January.

Despite all of this, James is of the belief the Lakers have no need to make a move, and that they can win the 2020 NBA Finals with the core that they have, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN:

With this being said, the Lakers would still be interested in making a move if the right offer came along. However, general manager Rob Pelinka reportedly has no plans of making a major move, only small trades on the ‘fringes’ of the roster:

Activity often ramps up league-wide in advance of the trade deadline, but the Lakers are still in a fact-finding mode. A person familiar with the team’s plans said the Lakers, who have the best record in the Western Conference, don’t plan to make any dramatic moves, but would be interested in improving the “fringes” of their team if the right deal arises.

It’s unclear whether or not James actually believes the Lakers don’t need to make a single move, but he’s taking the strong leadership approach and trying to avoid anything similar to what happened last season.

In the 2018-19 NBA season, James made it too obvious he wanted the Lakers to trade for Anthony Davis and it corroded the team’s chemistry. This season, the Lakers have formed excellent chemistry and James wants to keep that strong — even if he knows the Lakers need a backup point guard.

Either way, it seems the final decisions will be made by Pelinka and that if a move is made, it likely won’t be one that drastically affects the makeup of this team.
