However, it has been claimed that James’ comments were meant to put pressure on the Lakers’ front office.
Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report said on Aug. 25 (local time) that James is using his influence on Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka to sign Kyrie Irving.
In other words, James is hoping that his “retirement” comments will encourage Pelinka to make a move for Irving.
James had hoped to acquire Irving at the trade deadline this season, but the Brooklyn Nets sent him to the Dallas Mavericks instead of the Lakers.
James was reportedly very disappointed.
James is reportedly looking to win one last championship with the Lakers with Irving.
Irving, in turn, reportedly wants to play with James.
James and Irving won a championship together with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Meanwhile, the Mavs have decided to keep Irving, but Irving says there’s “no rush” to leave Dallas.
