Quit while you’re ahead, Lebron

Honestly, it’s time for LeBron James to throw in the towel on his first season as a Los Angeles Laker.

James is on his 16th season in the league, is currently 34 years old, and is having his second worst season ever when looking at the numbers. The only other season that was worse was in 2003 when he was a 19-year-old kid on a horrible Cleveland Cavaliers team.

Injury plays the biggest factor as a pulled groin kept him out 17 games already this season, and the team stood no chance without him in the line-up, only winning six of them. Now, with what the Lakers say is a “healthy” Lebron James, the chemistry is all off. Many on-court arguments, lack of hustle, and calling out teammates puts the Lakers in a tough spot. LeBron still has three more years with the Lakers before his contract is up, so why put the best player on your team that is 34 in a position to get even more injured?

They are far out of the playoffs and only have 18 games left to play in the regular season. Plus, if they do make the playoffs, they are sending a disoriented Laker team to play the Golden State Warriors in the first round. That is a lot of risk to put the player you see as the face of the franchise for the next three years in games that might not matter in the end.
