National Basketball Association owner says he wouldn’t trade much for LeBron James

The first year of the Lakers-LeBron marriage did not go as planned, but L.A.is already eying the 2019-20 season. The Lakers' season has been a disaster this year.

Lonzo Ball was the subject of trade talks last month, but the second-year point guard presently is concentrating only on getting healthy, whether his future is with LeBron James and the Lakers or with another National Basketball Association team.

When reflecting on the Los Angeles Lakers' first season with LeBron James under contract, there is a vast array of different conclusions that are drawn.

Ingram has been diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis in his ailing right arm. Ball is averaging 9.9 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game.

"The Ingram thing is a big problem and a scary injury". However, finding a team that would give up a king's ransom of The King might be more hard than you would think.

While this might seem insane, you have to consider the history of Jeanie who actually fired her own brother to help the Lakers franchise get LeBron James.

"We've released what he's got going on, but I'm not going to get into all the details, " Walton said. Kyle Kuzma also missed his second consecutive game Saturday night after rolling his ankle last week. "I wouldn't want to gut the team for a player that isn't committed and is toward the end of his career".

Whether they should or not, according to Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report, the Lakers "contemplated" trading LeBron, as owner Jeanie Buss was angered with Rich Paul of Klutch Sports for allegedly leaking the Lakers' interest in New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

Ingram has missed the Lakers' past two games after he reported shoulder pain following a morning shootaround last Monday.

The 34-year-old James, about to have the curtain dropped on his 16th NBA season, said during the 2015 NBA Finals while playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Golden Warriors that he would rather not make the playoffs than lose in the Finals - something he's done six times in his career, compared to three championships.

With the Lakers' season fading as they fall further out of playoff contention, the organization will play it safe with its young players.
