The Lakers are readying their upcoming season with big news regarding LeBron James. According to a report by Yahoo’s Chris Haynes, the 34-year old is reportedly set to start at the point guard position next season alongside shooting guard Danny Green.
The Lakers’ star has averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists during the last season. Considering it’s LeBron James, other Lakers point guards such as Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook and Rajon Rondo will most likely come as options off the bench.
Even though the Cleveland native will be entering his 17th season in the league, he’s still a gifted passer with great vision and an impressive capability of conducting the offense. Considering not many will be able to compete aginst James, it will be a difficult situation for other guards.
After failing to acquire the services of Kawhi Leonard, the Lakers signed DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year deal, Avery Bradley to a two-year deal, as well as Jared Dudley, Troy Daniels, and re-signing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee.
