Rumor: Phil Jackson wants Lakers to trade LeBron James
Connect the dots?
Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times on “The Doug Gottlieb Show":
I wouldn’t assume Jackson actually wants the Lakers to trade LeBron. This strikes me as the type of rumor that spreads more because it’s juicy than accurate. It’s so easy to know Jackson’s and LeBron’s past, make an assumption and share it. Even Plaschke, while relaying what he has heard, expresses doubts.
Besides, even if Jackson wants to trade LeBron, Buss won’t go for that, anyway.
