After missing playoffs again, Lakers face ‘critical’ offseason says LeBron James

Today, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, who is all too familiar with facing James in the postseason (his Warriors played James the last four years, winning three times), essentially emphasized that LeBron not being in the league's second season will be, well, as we've mentioned, weird (courtesy of ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk and h/t Cavaliers Nation's Jonathan Sherman). So, I'll be as active as I need to be for us to get better and go from there. We have an opportunity to get better.

Not only does LeBron James have to recruit players like Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, and other to the Lakers, but he is having a bit of trouble getting top talent on Space Jam 2.

Cowherd said they were signed because both would get along with James. That's why I came here.

The Lakers are likely to be radically reshaped during the offseason, with seven members of the roster entering free agency. "I'm not going to give you an answer to that question", she told a Sports Business podcast.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, The King can't seem to get any top National Basketball Association talent to star alongside him in this movie.

The stakes are considerable for all, but perhaps highest for the Lakers.

The Lakers face a pivotal summer with James set to turn 35 by the end of 2019, and it's not entirely clear if the Lakers' front office can deliver the firepower the Lakers' lineup desperately needs to contend.

With the season almost over, James sent a message to his potential future teammates in an interview with Spectrum SportsNet's Allie Clifton.

"It (adding another star) is very critical to me and my future", James added. "But for me personally, it's very critical, because I want to compete and I want to compete now".
