Lebron out of the east would pretty much guarantee celtics being #1 seed and probably going to the finals every year.

I hope it happens somehow. I want Lebron out of the East.

Would Harden defer to LBJ? Where does CP3 fit into a “take turns” offense? Would two key members of the NBAPA take huge pay cuts to team up?

I'd much rather beat him.

I still can't understand the Lakers narrative with Lebron. A best case scenario line up of Ball, Ingram, James, George and a MLE centre isn't winning anything now nor in the future. For me it's return to the Cavs or go to Houston.

If LeBron wants to chase rings, he should go to the Warriors.

if it was true for years, then why would anyone print a story about James going to Houston to play with Paul and Harden?  They both can't be true.

Dumb question: I'm LeBron and I want to go to Houston. Other than the pride issue, how much does my salary mean to me? In other words, am I making so much in endorsements that I don't really care?

I don't think it is a question about needing the money as much as holding the team to a high standard.  Lebron took less than the max to go to Miami and then watched the owner pinch pennies and let valuable members go which in Lebron's mind cost them that 3rd title in his last year there.  He doesn't want to make that mistake again, which is also why he won't sign long term contracts.  He is keeping the pressure on by taking max contracts at short years.

I thought about this. What's that salary $ to Lebron? His net worth is around 400M... But maybe he hopes to purchase a team down the line. He's still pretty far from Ownership money.

Could be Paul taking the pay cut. You honestly act really weird about salary cap stuff. A few weeks ago you asked me to come up with a way the Bucks could clean their cap (and they have some bad contracts). I came up with a completely plausible series of moves they could do. I could do the same for Houston this year or summer. If Lebron said he wanted to go to Houston they would find a way to make it work. Hell maybe Paul decides he wants to be part of a dynasty and takes a lower salary when he is 35. That would be a fairly common thing for a ringless vet to do at age 35. Is there a reason you like to act like these things are so impossible? I am not even saying this stuff is likely, but randomly acting like It is impossible is pretty humorous and odd.

That is probably part of the reason the LA talk happens so much. He would certainly have more business opportunities there to get closer to ownership money.
