Richard Jefferson Doesn’t Think LeBron James Is A Laker Great

LeBron James is one of the most amazing players to ever play in the NBA. He has won four championships, four MVP awards, four titles of the Finals MVP, and much more.

However, his tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers hasn’t gone really well. Despite winning a championship with the Lakers in 2020, LeBron James hasn’t been very consistent. This is why he is not one of the greatest players in the franchise history, according to Richard Jefferson.

LeBron James needs to be more consistent

Richard Jefferson knows how good LeBron James is. The two of them played for the Cleveland Cavaliers together and won a huge championship back in 2016. However, the player-turned-analyst doesn’t believe that James is a Laker great at this point.

“This is his fourth season, right? They’ve been in there four seasons. Two years, they haven’t made the postseason. One year, they lost in the first round. And one year, they won a championship.”

The former NBA champion pointed out how James being one of the greatest Lakers players is all about consistent effort. Unfortunately, the four-time NBA champion hasn’t been able to achieve consistently good results, which is why he is nowhere near other Lakers legends.

The Lakers are one of the most popular franchises in basketball history and they’ve had a lot of amazing players throughout years. From Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, Lakers fans have always had incredible superstars.

Now, it’s time for LeBron James to show what he’s got. He’s won one championship in four years, but there is no doubt that he can do more.

LeBron will likely retire in Los Angeles

LeBron James will turn 38 in December and he has one more year left on his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. He is also eligible for a two-year extension with the team that’s worth up to $97 million.

Even though James hasn’t shown signs of slowing down, he will most likely play in the league for a few more years before retiring. If the Lakers extend his contract, there is a good chance that he will retire in Los Angeles.

The four-time MVP will most likely surpass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar next season and become NBA’s all-time leading scorer. Another championship would mean a lot for his legacy, but we will see if the Lakers can improve their roster this summer.
