Lakers Name LeBron James Starting Point Guard

The Lakers have just named their new starting point guard – Mr. LeBron James.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Lakers will move LeBron to point guard for the upcoming season, where he’ll be paired in the backcourt with the newly signed Danny Green.

The team shipped off point guard Lonzo Ball as part of the Anthony Davis trade last month. While LeBron has never been strictly a point guard before, he’s played the point throughout his 17-year career.

In addition to Davis and Green, the new-look Lakers have also added DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo to the roster.
