Chris Paul would have to go..

Lebron wouldn't play well on a team with a true point guard. That or Chris Paul would need to change up his game. One of them would have to be the ball handler. And it can't be Chris Paul because lebron isn't that great of a catch and shooter. He's learned to play off the ball great, but not as a catch and shooter.

But take Paul out, put lebron in and they would win a lot of fukkin games.

Jordan had a team built around him... Exactly. Yes, he did. That's called good ownership. The Cavs didn't build sh!t. Coincidence Kyrie wants out too?

I guess I'm wondering why people think LeBron's legacy will tainted.. People always tend to bring up Jordan or Magic or whomever from back in the day. Not only has the game changed, but each of those guys had pillars surrounding them as well. The point is to win Championships - can you blame a guy or tarnish his legacy for that?

So should he have stayed with a dead organization?

I get what you are saying to an extent, but look at guys on low-to-mid-major markets --- they can't do it alone. If management can't bring in guys, and the point is to win, why stay? Loyalty? pfffffffffffffft..

Yes, but this argument that works with the Cavs goes out the window when applying it to LBJ leaving the heat. Are the heat a small-market dead organization? fk no lol.

And even if LBJ is the centerpiece wherever he goes, the team wasn't built like that. Jordan was the centerpiece that bulls were built from. Joining superstar teams and being slightly better than the others already there does not qualify

Jordan was there 2 or 3 years and then had Pippen and Grant. LBJ was in Cleveland for 7 (?) years and never had sh!t.

The Cavs were alive b/c of LeBron .. and had multiple runs b/c of LeBron. Really quite impressive he had that many runs if you look back at those rosters.. yikes.

You are crazy if you think Lebron will give up his bird rights and just outright sign with a new team. He already stands to make less on his new deal because of the discount he took when he first joined the Heat. He's not about to lose out on a lot more money and the Heat aren't going to accept some trash like deandre back in exchange for agreeing to the sign and trade.

Griffin goes to the Heat if Lebron goes to Hollywood.

and they wouldn't be able to sign him after only moving those 2 anyway. It would put their salary at around 57 million before signing Lebron and you can't sign a player above the MLE if it puts you over the luxury which Lebron's would.

This. Lebron is in a good situation and has Pat Riley building the rosters. Leaving cleveland wasn't that bad because they are such a dysfunctional franchise that he should've left earlier, but he's got a good thing in Miami with a mastermind at the helm.

If he switches teams and wins with a whole different starting lineup, the whole "I'm taking my talents to South Beach" and the "not 1, not 2....." incidents will be washed away.

I'm a LeBron lapdog because I have moved on from something that happened several years ago? because I acknowledge LeBron has without question been the best player on the Heat for quite a while?

I have no horse in the race. I'm barely even a basketball fan and the only time I'll watch the NBE is when there are two big markets facing each other because the chances said game will be rigged are less.

I'm not saying he's the best player in the NBA. I think a strong case could be made for both LBJ & Durant. I just don't understand why it's so difficult to just sit back and enjoy the fact we get to watch two guys cement their place in history as two of the greatest players to ever play the sport.

Mo was an injury replacement. Shaq was not an all star with LeBron.

Mo Williams literally needed TWO players to get hurt. Nelson got hurt, but Ray Allen replaced him, then Bosh couldn't go so Mo Williams FINALLY got the nod

Rofl


Williams wasn't voted in by the fans, nor was he chosen by Eastern Conference head coaches as a reserve. Then he was passed over by Stern in favor of Boston's Ray Allen, who is replacing injured Orlando guard Jameer Nelson on the roster.


Dan Gilbert basically penned a comic sans letter to the league to get him in.
