Out of nowhere this week, trade rumors have arrived stating that LeBron James, arguably the best player of all time, could be leaving the Los Angeles Lakers. With the NBA trade deadline set for Feb. 8, of course teams would love to land him.

However, that's not going to happen. James' agent has seen all the rumors arrive and he made it quite clear that James is going to stay put. Yup, a LeBron trade isn't in the cards.

James and the Lakers are in the middle of a disappointing season, as they're currently 25-25 and in ninth place of the Western Conference standings. The hope is this team can catch fire after the All-Star Game. They'll need James at his best if they want to turn things around, no doubt.
