This week, the National Basketball Association named James Harden as the league's Most Valuable Player for the first time in his career, making him one of two guys to have ever won the MVP after winning the 6th man of the year award during their career.
After losing to KD and the Warriors in back-to-back NBA Finals, it's hard to conceive that the best player in the world would text the man who just beat him to join forces.
It might make sense for James to stay away from the Lakers if another star isn't brought in because he coming in by himself probably isn't enough to get by the Warriors, and at that point he might as well stay with the Cavs.
In only a few short days, the National Basketball Association world will know exactly where LeBron James plans to play next season.
If those are, indeed, Durant's thoughts, Twitter seems to agree with him.
Could the two best players in the National Basketball Association team up in Los Angeles?
James and Durant teaming up next season in L.A. or elsewhere is an extreme long shot, though.
"Behind the scenes, Kevin Durant was like, 'Why would I do that?' " Smith went on.
The Lakers will be able to officially speak with James on July 1, assuming he does not exercise his player option.
