The Warriors plotted the trade of a lifetime when they inquired from the Lakers about LeBron James’ availability.

The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers were both quiet at the trade deadline. Little did everyone know that the Warriors were already plotting the trade of a lifetime when they inquired about James’ availability in the hours leading up to 3 PM E.T. on February 8.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Warriors made an “unsuccessful bid” to convince James’ camp to seek out a trade from the Lakers in what would have been a bombshell move that paired him and Stephen Curry together. In the end, it was James who remained adamant that he wanted to stay with the Lakers, with his agent, Rich Paul, telling the Warriors brass that the 39-year old superstar “had no interest in a trade and wanted to remain a Laker”.

What a sight it would have been to witness LeBron James elevate Curry and the Warriors into legitimate title contention. But James is clearly standing on business with the Lakers, as the two teams currently seated on the 9th and 10th spots in the Western Conference bide their time in pushing their chips towards the middle of the table.
