The Golden State Warriors are the one dynasty that is currently ruling the NBA.
Any veteran player that might be “ring-chasing” to end their career will certainly take a look at joining the Warriors.
But, what if the Warriors did away with their future to extend the dynasty a few more seasons?
One way they could do that is by trading for Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James.
According to an article on Yahoo Sports, James could be traded to Golden State if he becomes available.

This may sound crazy, but the Lakers should be headed for a rebuild after another down season for them.
They might sneak into the playoffs on the back of James, but any significant run is out of the question.
What gives Golden State an edge over other teams is that they have a package of young players they could trade.
While that would all but ruin the long-term outlook of the Warriors, they would be the favorites in the NBA over the next 3-4 years.
This would be very similar to the Warriors when they had Kevin Durant, except the players would be older.
Even though James is 38 years old, he is still at the peak of his basketball powers.
Averaging 29.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.7 assists this season.
He would fit in perfectly with the Warriors, as the current big 3 in Golden State can adapt to whoever is put around them.
It might not be wise for the Lakers to trade LeBron in the conference.
But, if Golden State is offering the best package of young players then this is a deal they should make.
