The frustration possibly building inside of LeBron James makes sense and now there are claims that the four-time NBA champion may opt to move elsewhere if the Los Angeles Lakers don’t turn things around.

There have been crazy suggestions about James, someone who has proven to be still efficient despite his age. One of those suggested was a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers that now has an array of promising young stars that could make a serious run at an NBA title.

That suggestion came from former NBA player Kendrick Perkins, alleging that James may want to consider a return back to Cleveland.

That reached James’ agent Rich Paul. The player agent set the records straight with Shams Charania of The Athletic and stressed that the 36-year-old NBA star has no plans of bailing on the purple and gold.

"I heard directly from Rich Paul that LeBron James isn't leaving the Lakers.. this team just doesn't look it has the young legs that they need to have & they have been very active in the trade market," Charania said.

There is no doubt that the Lakers have not been the team that most had expected them to be. Considering the build-up that include adding Russell Westbrook to the mix, most critics felt the Lakers could cruise their way into another NBA title.

But given that most of the players are over 30-years-old and James as well as Anthony Davis suffering bothering injuries, things have not gone well for head coach Frank Vogel.

Add the latest developments of players being placed under the league’s health and safety protocols with the Omicron variant threat growing, the Lakers’ woes continue to pile up.

Seeing James leave the Lakers will hardly address that issue. And considering his age, seeing the 17-time All-Star moving to another team is possible but hardly sensible.
