    Yes and no. I get CC has a point, BUT Stephen has a bigger point. The WAY LBJ approaches the game should not change. I've always had an issue with CC pushing his point way too much. Stephen already agreed with you bruh. But he seems to repeat himself like there's no tomorrow.

    A year older, another year of who's going to come play with him, another new coach, roster change; that's a bit too much to come together in such a short time. Other teams are getting stronger, more experienced so NO, he will not win a title with the Lakers. His power, skills and endurance will diminish not improve in the coming years.

  • Ty West

    Why you keep asking Stephen Jackson about LBJ he never gives anything but good things to say about dude... annoying

  • Kristion

    When has free agency and team changing not won Lebron a title? Never! So yeah if he’s healthy free agency will win Lebron his 4th title, etc. like it won Lebron all of his 1st 3 titles! But the guy they compared him too never had to team change or wait for a top free agent to get a title. So

  • Avery S

    Free throws, lean out while maintaining strength & build that intermediate game... Lebrons biggest flaw if you could even say a player as great as him has one is the mediocre mid range game... he is either taking a 3 or getting to the rim, which is a deadly combination but limits you if one isn’t available. As Lebron ages finishing at the rim will only get tougher & while his 3 point shot has improved over the years, nothing would unlock his game and have as little impact on his body as developing an intermediate game. Mid range fade, dribble pull up, high post step back. That’s what LBJ can do to Unlock the last phase of his incredible career

    LeBron won't decide if he wins another title, and neither will Magic.
    It is up to the Kawhi Leonard's and Anthony Davis' of the world.
    He needs three rings to make a legit run at being The GOAT, and he's gonna need some help.
    There's A LOT of work left to be done.....

  • Kyrie Better than Curry

    What cc lost 4 lbs to finish his career. So drastic

  • Virginia Coleman

    4 championships still isn't enough to call LeBron James the GOAT!!! Shaquille O'Neal has 4 titles...he will just tie with Shaq & 1 more than D-Wade!

  • Alvaro Diaz

    Stupid answer anybody has a chance to win a title while they’re playing that’s not answering the question.
    LeBron deactivates every other player around him By holding the ball too long.
    Let Kuzma hold the ball that long he will score at least 40 points per game

  • J Garner

    So it was ok for Jordan to draw the foul and shoot FREE throws as C.C. said...but its a problem for Harden to do it...shitz weird

    All this advice is fine & dandy but lebron refuses to be coached. You cNt call & run plays because lebron will just change it on the fly. He thinks he knows best even when he doesnt.

    Another Lakers/LeBron segment - why do they even pay producers and these overpaid talking heads? just have a 24h live stream of a Lakers fan club room. nobody with a brain should be spending cable money for this garbage.

  • MrShanester117
    MrShanester117 4 months ago

    I don’t think so. He’s good but the Lakers aren’t a solid organization anymore. Jerry Buss is gone and so the Lakers don’t matter anymore. I don’t see a trajectory for their success. Milwaukee is getting better, Philly is getting better, the Celtics are still young, the Warriors are still good, Denver is getting better. Etc.
    How are the Lakers on a path to overtake these teams and win a title before Lebron ages out of the league? 🤷‍♂️

  • Leper Messiah
    Leper Messiah 4 months ago +2

    Very doubtful .... His reign is over! He he's lost his mental capacity to compete. He'll have a chance if he changes his game. To suit not only his team chemistry for success but is ageing body. Time will tell but LAKERS fans I wouldn't hold your breath

    They talked like they know better than LeBrons mind and his body. Everyone in NBA worked out. Not only Lebron spent a million dollars on his body.

    He lost interest in his teammates and defenses his year. & his leadership was trash. That’s all.

  • Joyce Stevens
    Joyce Stevens 4 months ago

    Yeah, you right CC. The free-throws is very important for game. So LBJ listen. Yes, work on your free throws and he will wins titles before he return to Cavaliers. Then he will buy the team.

  • Vaurie
    Vaurie 4 months ago

    I agree, Lebron needs to lose some weight. There was a few times I saw him go up for a dunk and come down as if his knees couldn't absorb the impact. He also needs to lay off the wine. It's not good for pro athletes. If screws with the brains equilibrium.

    This is by far CC's best basketball assessment . Seems like the network told Captain Jack to go along with program or get lost . CC is finally talking like the NFL Legend he is and is spot on . Lebron 100% has to change his game ..he cant be 35 years old ,stoping and going, going through the legs . Lebron waste a lot of energy thats why he has so many turnover's he's tired and you can see he tires quickly now , but Lebron wants his stats so I dont see anything changing .
