LeBron James needs help at Los Angeles Lakers but Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard may turn down the opportunity, according to former NBA star Richard Jefferson, who believes James’ performances will decline sooner rather than later.
“The 100 per cent need to add that second piece,” Jefferson said.
“As good as LeBron is, there’s going to be a decline. Right now, he’s still averaging great numbers and compliments to Luke Walton for being able to keep his minutes down. He had 28 points in 31 minutes in a win, that’s impressive. For the most part, the Lakers need to add more because Bron’s not dominating with high-flying dunks the way it used to be. He’s not bullying everyone.
“His numbers still look great but they need another guy to take that load off a little bit. It has to come from a group of guys, it can only be three or four different guys that can go to LA. People have talked about Anthony Davis, have talked about Kawhi, have talked about Klay [Thompson]. But you don’t know who wants to go there. I would not be surprised if all of them said no.”
