7 Reasons LeBron James to Los Angeles Lakers Is Actually a Terrible Idea

Remember a few weeks back, when ESPN's Brian Windhorst suggested that the Los Angeles Lakers might be gearing up for a run at LeBron James in 2014?

Seems like they could use his help sooner than that, doesn't it?

While LeBron's Miami Heat are off to a fast 4-1 start, the star-studded Lakers have stumbled to an unfortunate 1-4 mark. Kobe Bryant's playing well and Dwight Howard's getting there, but other than those two, L.A.'s latest edition of "Showtime" remains a late arrival to the 2012-13 NBA season.

The Lakers could use a savior of James' caliber to swoop in and rescue the squad from media-and-fan-projected despair right about now. Trouble is, LeBron can't excise himself from his contract with the Heat until after the 2013-14 season, nor will the Lakers have the financial flexibility to sign him until then.

And, by that time, it won't be in the best interest of either party to join forces.
