Default Recent LeBron James discussion (merged topics)

The Lakers won fewer games than any team in the league over the last five years and it shows. This is mostly because Kobe left the organization in shambles by demanding a max contract while having 17-win seasons and 41% FG seasons. This is pure evidence that he truly is the lowest impact player with a max contract we've ever seen. Joe Johnson moved the needle more than ChuckBe.

Bryant is leaving the Lakers after the worst three-year stretch in franchise history ended with the worst season ever for the 16-time NBA champions. Los Angeles went 17-65, four games worse than last seasonís previous nadir, and missed the playoffs for a club-record third straight time.

Still, the question remains: Can LeBron clean up Kobe's 5-year mess?

I say he still has a chance, after all it's not easy to repair 5+ years worth of damage but if anyone even has a shot it's the King himself.

The better question would be: Can Lebron make the playoffs in the West?

And does he have the desire to exert himself like Kobe in 2013 to get there?

Nah LeGOAT would rather sit out with a fake injury on his vag while he throws every single teammate of his under the bus.

#LeGOAT
please no irrelevant deflections in terms of out of context stats that are unrelated to Kobe dragging the Lakers straight into the shitter for 5 years straight, please try to stay on the topic at hand.

Kobe also traded away their 2018 draft pick for Steve Nash

That could've turned into Doncic instead

Can LeBron make the playoffs despite Kobe's +5-year mess?
