“These Guys Are Getting Older” – 24-Year-Old Star Makes a Bold Statement By Saying LeBron James and Kevin Durant Are Not the Face of NBA Anymore
The season of the Los Angeles Lakers ended earlier than expected. LeBron James is currently spending time with his family. He made headlines for visiting Paris Fashion Week and for his ongoing debate with Michael Jordan.
Meanwhile there’s someone who believes that both LeBron James and Kevin Durant are too old to lead the league anymore. According to this person, the league needs fresh and young players like Ja Morant and Zion Williamson.
Are LeBron James and Kevin Durant still the face of NBA?
Zion Williamson and Ja Morant are both young and talented basketball players who have faced tough times in the past. Recently, Ja got in trouble for showing his guns on social media and has a 25-game ban. On the other hand, Zion is dealing with an injury and some negative attention due to his relationship with an ex-adult film actress. However, Trae Young from the Atlanta Hawks believes that both Ja and Zion will overcome these problems and keep making a positive impact in the league.
On his podcast, Trae Young shows his support for both players. He understands the problems they are going through and mentions that he knows them personally. He hopes that they can overcome these challenges and achieve success.
“I really hope they get out of this situation and pull out on the right side…They’re so talented like they’re so good, the league needs these types of players in the league for it to go, because I mean obviously Bron [LeBron James], and guys like KD these guys are getting older,” he said.
Young believes that players like Ja and Zion are extremely important for the future of the NBA. He thinks that players like LeBron and Kevin, who are considered some of the best of all time, are getting older.
Ja Morant and Zion Williamson are going through bad times
Both Zion and Ja were chosen first and second overall in the 2019 draft, demonstrating their outstanding potential to become the league’s faces.
NBA was very excited to have them because they had the ability to play exceptionally well. However, after four years, both players have experienced both good and bad moments. They have dealt with injuries, suspensions, and disagreements, which has made people curious about what lies ahead for them.
Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson are two new players in the league from the 2023 draft class. Zion and Ja, on the other hand, have a dark future. Zion is battling with injury issues and trade rumors, while Ja has been suspended for the second time this season.
