Could LeBron James wind up finishing his career with the Dallas Mavericks? ESPN’s Brian Windhorst feels that it’s unlikely, but wouldn’t rule it out.

Windhorst recently discussed the possibility of James teaming up with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving in Dallas, during a recent interview.

“I don’t think he wants to leave L.A., I think that’s pretty clear,” Windhorst told Fanatics View. “I do think he has a great respect for Luka and he has appreciated him for a long time, not that that’s surprising. So I would not rule anything out. But, LeBron has not shown iota of interest in leaving L.A. and Luka is obviously committed here for a long time.”

In his 20th NBA season, James has appeared in 47 games for the Lakers, playing an average of 36.1 minutes each time. The King has averaged 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game, while shooting 50.1% from the field and 30.8% from beyond the arc.

But I think we’re just easing into and just knowing that if we continue to play at a high pace, everybody’s going to get their shots.”

He then got specific and listed some ways for his teammates to help the Mavericks without necessarily putting up numbers.

“Just continuing to have that next-play mentality. If you don’t get it that one play, do something for your teammate in order to get him a better shot or put yourself in position. It’s just one of those times throughout the season, especially where we are after the trade, where our units are figuring each other out. And when we do, we’ll be good.”
