The Los Angeles Lakers have some key days as the NBA trade deadline is quickly approaching and while it all points out for LeBron James to stay in Los Angeles at least for the rest of the season, rumors have the star with a possible exit and the NY Knicks has been the front runner as a potential landing spot for the superstar.

LeBron James has been frustrated with how the Lakers season has been panning out, despite the recent 3-game winning streak, and following the win to the NY Knicks, the star seemed to have sent a message to LA's front office by wearing a Knicks towel, also prior the game hinting by saying to the press he has thought before of playing in NY.

With all of that and some rumors of the possibility of a trade, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said in "First Talk" that if LeBron wants to win another NBA championship title he needs to leave LA and has NY as his best landing spot.

"If [LeBron James] wants a better shot at a championship, he should consider [leaving LA]… When I think about the Garden, The Mecca, New York City… The only thing that’s missing from the Knicks is a superstar.” Said Smith.

"It's not a question for me," James said after closing out the road trip with 26 points on 12-for-22 shooting -- including several rim-rattling dunks -- in 40 minutes to secure the win. "I love who we have in the locker room. And that's all I worry about." James added: "We're going to go out and prepare ourselves every single night no matter what it is. No matter who's out on this team. No matter what."
