Shannon Sharpe on Undisputed made it very clear that he isn’t a believer for the theory of LeBron James leaving the Los Angeles Lakers and agrees with the rumours being shut downed by Rich Paul. Cutting down the theory Shannon Sharpe quoted “This is just speculation. We’ve seen when LeBron’s in a situation where he can’t win, he’ll leave. But LA is where LeBron wants to be. What he wants to accomplish off the court is right here.”

 Shannon Sharpe also gave a overview of LeBron James journey from Cleveland Cavaliers to Miami Heat then back to Cleveland Cavaliers and now with Los Angeles Lakers. He conveyed his journey by stating how he left Cleveland Cavaliers first because of the situation down there and then leaving Miami Heat for going back to Cleveland Cavaliers when Dwayne Wade started to break down a little bit and the others have either retired or left. Continuing to it further Shannon Sharpe revealed story of LeBron James joining the Los Angeles Lakers when Kyrie Irving left and Kevin Love was no longer the same player.

Shannon Sharpe also brought in the factor of LeBron James’ off court time and business operations as he said “Everything that LeBron wants to accomplish off the court is based right here, he gets a head start as Maverick Carter is here. His whole business  operation is set up in L.A.” The only scenario of LeBron James leaving the Los Angeles Lakers believed by Shannon Sharpe is to play with his son Bronny James when he has multiple years left on his contract but wants to play with his son will be the only time he’ll demand a trade out of Los Angeles Lakers.
