Longtime Fan Attempts To Recruit LeBron To L.A. On Christmas

LeBron JamesOn Christmas Day, the Los Angeles Lakers had to face off against the reigning two-time NBA champion Miami Heat in front of the Lakers faithful at the Staples Center without Kobe Bryant in the lineup.

Ultimately, the Lakers put up a much better effort against the Heat than anticipated. Many believe the Heat would wipe the floor with the Lakers and embarrass Mike D’Antoni’s squad at home, but that didn’t turn out to be the case with the Lakers making things competitive.

One avid Lakers fan, and longtime courtside season ticket holder, tried to make a pitch to LeBron James on Christmas Day. The fan was wearing a custom No. 6 Lakers jersey with James name on the back via Dave McMenammin of ESPN Los Angeles via Twitter:

James will be the one superstar that every team with cap space will be targeting in July. Although many believe James will simply re-sign with the Heat, the four-time NBA MVP may shock the world once again and head elsewhere. One possibility is James signing with the Lakers. The storied franchise would love to bring in arguably the best player in the game to help turn the team around alongside Kobe Bryant, but it’s a stretch to say the least that Mitch Kupchak and company could convince him to come to Los Angeles.
