LeBron James makes stunning Irving, Durant and Butler trade claim

LeBron James has continued to tease Los Angeles Lakers fans by calling out all of the NBA’s greatest players and encouraging them to join his team.

“Ask me if I would like to play with Kevin Durant. Absolutely,” James said.

“Ask me if I would Jimmy Butler. Absolutely. Kyrie Irving. Giannis [Antetokounmpo}. Ben Simmons. All of them. Luca Doncic. Ask me right now.

“Come on guys it is not rocket science, these are great players. I would love to play with a lot of great players, it is just who I am. People sometimes get caught up in bunches and want to control what you can say. But they can’t control it at all. And I play by the rules.”

The 33-year-old scored just 22 points but he is not concerned by his lack of numbers of the board.

“The shots are always there for me but I just play the game,” he added.

“I play the game the right way and try to feed the guys. I was drawing the defence and playing a few pockets passes to give my guys the ball. I always say for me, shooting the ball and scoring never dictates my game.”

Los Angeles Lakers offered to beat LA Clippers to the signing of Durant
