NBA Trade Deadline: Why Lakers’ LeBron James Should Force Deal to Mavs




The NBA trade deadline is here, and if Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James is serious about contending for another title, he should consider forcing his way to the Dallas Mavericks.



After being swept by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals last season, the Los Angeles Lakers’ regression this season wasn’t hard to foresee.


LeBron James, despite being 39 years old, remains the best player on his team, which is unbelievable and unprecedented, but it hasn’t translated to the Lakers being a title contender. L.A. has a 27-25 record heading into Thursday NBA trade deadline, good for ninth-place in the Western Conference.



James’ future with the Lakers past this season has been questioned, but given his age, why not rip the bandaid off now and demand a trade before the deadline in order to compete for a championship now instead of wasting a season? And if James does request a trade, why not ask to go to the Dallas Mavericks to join forces with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving? After all, James admires Doncic, Irving and Mavs head coach Jason Kidd, and Irving reached out to James last summer in an attempt to recruit James to Dallas.



NBA analysts like The Ringer’s Kevin O’Conner have also considered the idea of the Lakers trading James, although it didn’t involve the Mavs the way we’ve been envisioning.


“If a breakup is inevitable, I can’t help but wonder whether the best time for both LeBron and the Lakers to make a change is now, ahead of the deadline: James could join a contender, and Los Angeles could get something in return. Would the Heat, Knicks, or Sixers make an all-in move? All of them could offer a better chance at the Finals than the Lakers,” O’Conner wrote.
