For the first time in his career, LeBron James exited the playoffs in the first round as the Los Angeles Lakers lost the series against the Phoenix Suns (2-4). The season has just ended for the reigning NBA champions but they already got question about potential roster changes in the offseason.

After Game 6, James was asked if he thought the Lakers need to make bigger moves in order to be able to compete for a championship next season. “I think Rob [Pelinka] has done such a great job of constructing this team over the last few years that he will continue to do that. I will have some input, he always asks for my input asks AD’s input,” LeBron said.

“But at the end of the day we want to continue to get better. I trust Rob, I trust Kurt [Rambis], trust everyone upstairs that does their diligence and our coaching staff and things of that nature. Obviously number one thing for us is getting AD healthy. That’s number one. It doesn’t matter what changes we make. We got to get big fella healthy and needs back to where he was before the injury.

“Get my ankle back right which I.. a thousand percent I already know that I’ll be 100 percent as far as my ankle when the season starts in October and then go from there. That put us in best possible chance to be successful next year. But like I said, Rob will do his due diligence and construct this team to where it needs to be to compete for a championship once again.”
