Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James made headlines last summer when he mentioned the Golden State Warriors as a team he could potentially join and do “something special” with during an appearance on The Shop. He even got poetic about getting into “pissing matches” with Draymond Green.

And while a deal that sends LeBron to the bay seems like a far-fetched concept, fans, pundits and even NBA executives continue to talk about possible moves.

Of course, the trade chatter peaked earlier this season when James declared immediately after losing to the Miami Heat, “I’m a winner and I want to win… and give myself a chance to win and still be able to compete for championships.” as submitted by ESPN.

Regardless of the hints James might or might not drop about wanting to continue — and regardless of any Warriors-related considerations — one league insider seems pretty confident the GOAT candidate won’t end up anywhere near Golden State .

The Athletic’s David Aldridge has just looked through every team in the association to find those that actually make sense as possible targets for James should his tenure with the Lakers end. Unfortunately, he doesn’t see the Dubs as one of the clubs on this list.

Aldridge wrote:

These comments are in stark contrast to those previously made by a Western Conference manager to Sean Deveney. Said the executive:

At the ripe old age of 38, James is averaging 29.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.0 steals per contest. He just lost a season-high 48 points in a win over the Houston Rockets on Monday.

On Thursday, the Warriors return to TD Garden for the first time since winning their last championship in Game 6 of the NBA Finals in June. However, one of the biggest stars of this series, Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown, may not be present for the rematch.

About The Athletic Jared Weiss:

Participation in the All-Star 2021 is currently questionable.

Brown has a career year for the Cs in 2022-23, averaging 27.2 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game.
