The rumors of LeBron James taking his talents to Hollywood and joining the Lakers have been going strong for nearly a year now. Still, with no denial from LeBron, even people inside the entertainment industry are now making bold statements on the situation.
Pete Zayas From Lakers Film Room – whose credentials have been tweeted out on the main Lakers account – said on the Under the Buss Podcast, he was told by four sources LeBron James is going to be a Laker this summer:
“I have had four different sources in the entertainment industry, none of them been basketball people … LeBron is coming [to the Lakers with Paul George] he has had to put X, Y, and Z in motion from a marketing standpoint.”
As for people inside basketball circles, longtime NBA reporter Peter Vecsey reported before the season began, LeBron was without a doubt going to join the Lakers this summer.
ESPN NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski added last night that LeBron and George will indeed have a conversation this summer about joining the Los Angeles Lakers together:
Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and it is hard to imagine any scenario where LeBron James does not give the Lakers strong consideration come July.
