Between the All-Star starters announcement and his triple-double performance in the Los Angeles Lakers' win over the Brooklyn Nets, LeBron James was all over the headlines on Thursday night. After the game, he added another with his comments about the status of his team ahead of the trade deadline.
"GM LeBron" has become a cliche over the years, as many believe he's often orchestrated moves behind the scenes, acting as a de-facto team executive. Because of that, and his stature in the league, he's often asked about the status of his team's roster, especially during trade season. The latest question came after the win over the Nets, with a reporter wondering if the Lakers were "one piece away" from competing for a title.
His answer? No moves necessary.
