LeBron James has always wanted to play the role of GM on his team ever since his departure to Miami. He’s orchestrated trades, free agent signings, and even hiring/firing of coaches. Back in 2014, LeBron made a comment on his favorite player in the draft, Shabazz Napier.
My favorite player in the draft! #Napier

After playing 7 games in his fourth season and will career averages of 4.3 points on 38% shooting from the field, Shabazz Napier doesn't quite seem to be living up to King James' expectations. With players like Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Joel Embiid in the 2014 draft, LeBron's comments never really made sense.
Safe to say LeBron has a way to go as far as becoming a GM.
