The media attention around James isn't the only reason other National Basketball Association stars might be hesitant to join James in Los Angeles.
Durant himself will be a free agent next offseason and has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe also began to get at Warriors fans, saying "So, enjoy the journey because we'll be champions before you know it, and then we'll just be laughing at all the Warrior fans who all of the sudden came out of nowhere". But two All-Stars available on the trade market - Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler - both ended up being dealt to teams other than the Lakers.
Though the Lakers are likely to make it back to the Finals at some point, it's hard to imagine that happening as long as Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Kevin Durant are still suiting up for Golden State. On the court, everyone next to LeBron - even future Hall of Famers, such as Dwyane Wade for example - become role players on some level. So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. I mean, Magic and Kobe know who I am.
Bryant joined Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone and Michael Jordan as the only players to reach 30,000 career points.

"Would playing with LeBron help me get that?"
Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, a teammate of Leonard's this season, described it as the "LeBron Effect". He's earned that, but he's human.
"It's a test of Bron's patience and also doing what he needs to do to keep the team's head above water", Bryant said.
"Guys similar to (LeBron), why would they want to play with somebody who does all the same things?" The Lakers have dramatically improved their form as well with a 14-9 record, having won seven of their last 10 games, after notably starting the season with a 2-5 record.
"It doesn't matter", James said.
"He's very unselfish. He's won multiple championships with other superstars". Again, I haven't read the article so I can't comment on that, but what you're asking me, to me the question is, why would you not want to play with LeBron?
