Dieter Kurtenbach: LeBron James to the Warriors is a fun but terrible trade idea
Published in Basketball
LeBron James to the Warriors?
I’ve heard worse suggestions than the Warriors bypassing the half-measures and going all-in on old guys.
But that doesn’t mean it should — or will — happen.
Even if the Warriors are keen to trade Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, and Jonathan Kuminga for James — and that’s what it would take — Golden State would need to know how much James could play for them.
Intermittently at best?
That last option seems most likely.
Time waits for no man — not even the self-proclaimed king.
James reportedly played the season’s final three months with a torn tendon in his foot. Anyone who watched him in the playoffs could see his left foot causing him problems. James even wore a 2005 edition of his signature Nike shoes — the LeBron II — in the Lakers’ series against the Warriors, as it undoubtedly provided more support and protection than the minimalist LeBron 20 sneakers Nike designed for him this past season.
