LeBron James Makes Another Blunder As Lakers’ Slide Continues

Late past year, Lakers All-Star forward LeBron James publicly stated that he would appreciate the chance to play with Anthony in Los Angeles if the opportunity presented itself. Just 19 games remain for LeBron James & Co.

LeBron is unlikely to have the same success Abdul-Jabbar did in Los Angeles, where he won five of his six National Basketball Association titles with the Lakers, and he will need to go some way to catch the league's all-time leading point scorer, who amassed his mammoth total over 20 seasons as a professional. James has said he grew up in Akron admiring Jordan as "the best ever" while he led Chicago to six championships in eight years during the 1990s. He was even seen coaching the team back when he was sidelined with injuries.

While it may have made sense earlier in the season, at this point in time it is quite possible that the addition of Anthony would cause more problems for the Lakers than it would fix.

Jordan released the following statement: "I want to congratulate LeBron on achieving another great milestone during his unbelievable career". Although James has only played 47 games for Los Angeles, he has charged up the career scoring chart in that time: He passed Dirk Nowitzki for sixth place in October, and he passed Wilt Chamberlain for fifth in November.

He reportedly spoke with team president Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka about the incident after the game.

James was asked if the Lakers' loss dampened his accomplishment.

Los Angeles wanted another veteran presence on its young squad, but losses in four of the team's past five games left both the Lakers and Anthony's camp wondering if it was the right time to bring him into "an unsettled environment", the report said. "I don't know why it's a big deal now". But I guess when things aren't going well you can kind of continue to make up stories.
