"Hell yeah. Of course I would", said Durant.
"I was still dubious, so I checked with Source No. 2, another current National Basketball Association agent who's at least as dialed in as Source No. 1". Especially when the attention is bullsh*t attention, fluff. "It won't be easy because it's Seattle", said Durant. It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word.
Jeez, Kuzma. LeBron is transforming the Lakers one game at a time when most superstars are reduced to bench roles, which is a far cry from being a "grandpa". "Just get out of the way and let us play basketball". "If you're Kyle Korver, then it makes sense". Because Kyle Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offence, and he's not a No 1 option at all, not even close.

But then, batting with the tail, Pujara accelerated and made his next 50 from 78 balls to score his 16th Test century . Temperatures are forecast to reach 39 Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) in Adelaide for the first day.
Considering James and the Lakers, back in action when they visit the Spurs on Friday night (8:30 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension), are focused on improving their current team, I doubt LeBron will ever fully acknowledge Durant's criticism of him.
"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". The Athletic's Joe Vardon initially broke the story who said that LeBron thinks Melo could be an asset in the younger players' development. "They don't need another guy". "LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game - and shooters". And if such a plan were to seriously be put in place, Seattle's last great National Basketball Association player wants to be part of it.
"So, I went outside the agent network, and asked Source No. 3: someone who works in an unrelated industry but has long-standing connections to Rich Paul and LeBron James", he explained. "Source No. 3 added the nugget that Paul was working on trades to put talent around James because of fears that younger free agents 'don't want to play with LeBron anymore'". So I don't really.
