Rob Pelinka Reportedly Has Made a Huge Promise to LeBron James

LeBron James is on the back nine of his career.

Actually, if you want to put it in golf terms, LeBron is more like on the 17h hole. While LeBron’s time remaining in the NBA  is limited, his future is starting to look a little more clear.  Based off current reports,  it seems like LeBron James will  most likely finish his career as a Los Angeles Laker. LeBron continues to meet with the Lakers front office, and there is this sense that LeBron might not renew his deal, meaning he will become a free agent next summer.

According to a new report from Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka is making some grandiose promises to LeBron to get him to stay a Laker for life. The Lakers know that they need to keep James in order to be successful, and Pelinka has seemingly come through with a pitch that LeBron will  have trouble turning down.


“Pelinka made his feelings clear that he wants James to retire as a Laker and promised to provide him with every resource possible to compete for a championship each year he’s with the organization, sources said,” Haynes explained in his report. 

With Russell Westbrook on the current roster, it might not be easy for the Lakers to get what LeBron needs. You also run into the problem of LeBron trying to be the GM.

That never works out for anyone. We’ll have to stay tuned to see how this unfolds as LeBron has said on numerous occasions his priority is to play with his son.
