When ESPN analyst and former NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy suggested the Lakers trade with LeBron James, much of the sports world was mocked.
According to the Bleacher Report, he was not the first to consider the idea. [1
Ric Bucher reported Thursday that the drama surrounding Anthony Davis's trading on the closing date, as well as the leaks, some of which believe they are from James's agents Rich Paul came when Lakers became angry. Owner Jeanie Buss, who had the idea to trade James, "crossed the mind."
From the Bucher report.

Davis trade talks led Lakers into disarray
Of course, the thought is the cornerstone to which all Lakers Hopes are raised because of his anger with his agent, wegwewe to be absurd.
That the thought would have come to her mind is also credible. The idea that Buss is so fed up with the failed Davis talks that he makes irrational thoughts come is not beyond the pale.

"data-reactid =" 60 " > Buss is reported to have accused the media of the ugly consequences of failed trade based on fake message attempts to distract the reports that the Lakers offered in principle to anyone not calling LeBron talks for Anthony Davis.
The Lakers have since entered into tank mode, talking about resting James, while not lashing down Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram from injury.
Is that absurd?
Swapping James out of Defiance against Paul is absurd – probably the same conclusion Buss had reached when the thought actually came to mind – the idea of trading James is not the case, if only one light. If a competing team knocked them out with an offer that included top-notch talent, the Lakers would be foolish not to consider it.
But these offers are unlikely to come. The price would be too high to pay for a player who will be 35 years old next season.
We'll all see the drama in the off-season again when a Lakers team led by LeBron James missed the playoffs to pick up the pieces and build a contender.
