LeBron James on Lakers front office’s ability to build championship roster: “Very confident”

After the Lakers’ loss against the Clippers, LeBron James addressed speculations from the media of him not being happy with the team’s general manger Rob Pelinka for the lack of activity in the trade market.

The four-time NBA champion was asked directly how confident he is in the Lakers front office building a championship roster around him. “Very confident,” James said. “I mean they’ve done it. they’ve shown me that.

“Ever since I got here the front office Jeanie, Linda, Kurt and everybody has welcomed me with open arms and has given me an opportunity play for a historical franchise, welcome our family in and I just try to give back my part of the game and inspire kids and inspire people that want to follow the Lakers and put them back at a level that they’re accustomed to be. And it’s always been my focus.

LeBron also talked about his other comments that he made during the NBA All-Star weekend, particularly his desire to play with his son Bronny.

“I don’t understand how my comments last weekend were taken to a whole different area of could I see myself retire as a Cavalier. I never said I see myself playing in a Cavaliers uniform.

“Talked to Jason Lloyd and he axed me and I said ‘Well, I don’t know what tomorrow holds but actually me playing for the Cavs I don’t know about that. Could I see myself retiring as a Cav?’ and he asked ‘Will you sign for a day and retire as a Cav?’ and I said ‘Well, that possible could be.’

“And then things about my son, me wanting to play with my son wherever he’s at, me going there. You guys take some of my words and just twist them to different places where they shouldn’t go. If I comment or compliment a GM that’s in OKC, I really believe that he’s done a phenomenal job and you spin out to me saying that Rob [Pelinka] is not doing a great job.”
