Kevin Durant Says Players Dislike "Toxic" Environment Around LeBron James

So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. "So his talents benefit more from a guy who can pass and penetrate and get him open". "Kawhi enjoys having the ball in his hands, controlling the offense, dictating the tempo with his post-ups; it's how he plays the game".

"But I also think LeBron wanted that on his resume - "Year 15, I played all 82 games".

"Which, I think, he deserves way more credit for switching his game".

"They don't know and they're trying to balance what they don't know with what they need right now". Bosh, same way. LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game-and shooters.

This source said Ball and Caldwell-Pope were definitely in the deal, but that there was still discussion whether the third player would be Ingram, Josh Hart, or Kyle Kuzma. Especially when the attention is (B.S.) attention, fluff.

Bosh, in an appearance Wednesday on ESPN's The Jump, mostly agreed with Durant's take.

LeBron couldn't attract star free agents during his first stint with Cleveland, which played a part in him leaving for Miami. So guys have to remember that. But the league might change.

James has occasionally made life hard for coaches - there are already rumblings he ignores Luke Walton's play calls - but the Lakers coach came to James' defense and told ESPN that he is an "incredible teammate". He's earned that, but he's human.

Suns forward Trevor Ariza said players similar to James, like Leonard and Thunder forward Paul George, could possibly be marginalized if they join the Lakers. "JaVale [McGee] has been deep into the playoffs the last few years", Lakers head coach Luke Walton said Tuesday. So I don't really. I haven't read the article so I can't comment on that, but what you're asking me, to me the question is, why would you not want to play with LeBron? "He's a victor and he's an incredible player and he's unselfish", he said.
