This upcoming season is going to be a tough one for the Los Angeles Lakers. With an aging roster, as well as players no longer on the team, the Lakers are in store for a long and rough 2013-2014 NBA season. But next offseason, the Lakers are ready to make a huge splash.

According to ESPN reports, the Lakers are hoping to get Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony to join forces with Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in the 2014 NBA offseason.

It’s all wishful thinking at this point, a league source with knowledge of the situation told ESPN. Teams are doing more wishing than Lebron is wanting right now. It’s not where Lebron wants to go to win. He already has two rings. If Lebron moved to Reno, teams would come to him.

I doubt this would happen, but even if this move did indeed happen, I don’t think it would be a great idea. Immediately when people hear that a group of superstars will be joining together on one team, they think they will be completely dominant. But in this case, all three will want the ball, which will not work out too well.
