Shannon Sharpe: LeBron James would view Dallas as hell compared to Los Angeles


June 7th, 2023

There is a lot of speculation surrounding the future of basketball legend LeBron James, with many wondering whether he could end up playing for the Dallas Mavericks in the near future.

Kyrie Irving has supposedly been trying to convince LeBron that he should spend the final few years of his career in Dallas, something that Shannon Sharpe thinks is very hard to imagine.

The Fox Sports broadcaster has explained that there are reasons beyond sport as to why it is very hard to imagine LeBron entertaining a move away from the Los Angeles Lakers and to the Texas side.


Family will keep LeBron in LA

Sharpe thinks that the player will not want to uproot his family again, especially not to a city that does not possess the same supposed glamor and stature as Los Angeles. 

"I don't think LeBron James uprooted his family from Cleveland, Ohio, to come out here to LA to all of a sudden say 'you know what, I want to spend my final couple of years in Dallas," Sharpe stated.

"I don't think he'll move further away from his family.

"I don't know Savannah, but I really do think she likes LA.

"I don't think someone of LeBron James' caliber says 'I want to leave LA, and I'm going to go to muggy Dallas'. Compared to LA, it's hell.

"LeBron is not leaving LA. Everything that he wanted, the thing that Magic Johnson sold him, is here.

"Magic told him 'LeBron, you want to start a production company, you want to get into the movie business, you want to get into the TV business, it's right here'."
