If Lebron leaves Cleveland for a 2nd time, he wont leave this time without giving them a head start for the future

Lakers will need to give up Ingram, Kuzma, Hart and whoever else under the sun to obtain him

Lebron is a free agent.  No reason for the Lakers to trade anything for him.

Kind of is if you're talking acquiring those three.

Lakers have enough for 2 max signings, NOT 3. Gotta shed salary, which may include the likes of Ingram/Kuzma and Hart. Or work a sign and trade, but that may be complicated still. I'm sure Lakers will make a run for Kawhi, but that will cost them a bit too.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

I know this isn't going to happen.  But let's just say for basketball reasons, LeBron went to Utah.  Let's say they did this by renouncing Favors cap hold, trading Rubio and resigning Exum (which I am going to assume will also free up cap space because his hold is $ 14m).  They roll out a starting 5 of Exum- Mitchell - Ingles - LBJ - Gobert.  Key bench pieces: Burks, Crowder, O'Neale, Jerebko.  Would prob need to find a center to spell Gobert unless you are comfortable playing Tony Bradley for 10-12 minutes in a playoff game.   

Just curious what people think, how competitive is this team?

Yes. He has to leave.

I will answer this under the assumption that LeBron completely submits himself to Snyder's vision for the team.  In this case the Jazz jump to the #2 spot in the Western Conference behind the Warriors.  They would probably push the Warriors to the limit.

That team would definitely be favorites to win the 2014 championship.

One TP for making me laugh, another one coming later because I laughed hard enough to spit on the computer.

GM LeBron would not be pleased that his key trade asset subsequently split his leg in half.
