The Los Angeles Lakers enter the 2023 NBA offseason with a lot of questions to answer.
They assumed LeBron James would be a part of the next season, but after King hinted at a possible retirement, alarms went off within the Lakers organization.
In addition to the possibility of retirement, James may leave the team and try his luck elsewhere.
Earlier this week, reports claimed that Kyrie Irving had contacted James in an attempt to lure him to Los Angeles.
The situation caused a stir around the league, but according to Gilbert Arenas, there is nothing to worry about.
The former player is confident that James will not leave the Lakers to play for the Mavericks.
‘He’s taking one. Her kid goes to USC, her other son just decided to go to Campbell Hall, so she has no plans to leave Los Angeles, especially without the Dallas Mavericks. Arenas said.
Since Kyrie Irving went disgruntled in Brooklyn last year, the Lakers have been considered as a possible landing spot for him.
LeBron James has expressed his interest in reuniting with Irving, with whom he won the 2016 NBA Championship.
Now, the tide has changed and Irving is trying to recruit James.
As Arenas said, it looks like Irving is trying to create something where there is nothing.
James will most likely leave Los Angeles unless his son, Bronnie James, is drafted by a different team next year.
Irving’s future is still up in the air, as the Mavericks, Lakers and even the Phoenix Suns have been mentioned among his possible destinations.
