LeBron James FED UP Waiting For Lakers To Improve Roster

He signed a 2-year, $97M extension in the offseason with the understanding that the Los Angeles Lakers would do everything in their power to upgrade the roster and try to get back to contender status. But could LeBron James, carrying an incredible load at age 38, be starting to crack under the pressure? 

In an exclusive interview with Sam Amick of The Athletic, LeBron was starting to show his impatience with the team's lack of impact roster moves thus far:  

They're doing what they feel is best for the franchise. I'm doing what's best for my guys in the locker room…  

Y'all know what the f**k should be happening. I don't need to talk.

That was LeBron's comment after putting the Lakers on his back yet again Saturday night, leading them to their 5th straight win. James had 37 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. But what else is new?

Since turning 38 on December 30th, LeBron has been averaging 38.3 points per game, 9.3 rebounds and 8.3 assists, and the Lakers remain unbeaten. 

According to Amick, James' frustration with the front office is their continued reluctance to trade those coveted 2027 and 2029 first-round picks to bring in some significant roster help now for this year's team. 

"Listen, you guys know. It’s not rocket science," continued James. But he realizes there might not be anything he can do about it. "It’s not my job. I can’t do nobody else’s job."

And yet, with comments like these—"Y'all know what the f**k should be happening. I don't need to talk"—he's trying his best to have his say.
