As soon as Lebron had actual competition in the East from 2008 to 2010 he decided to form a super team in Miami so that he could keep his easy path.
QuoteAs soon as Lebron had actual competition in the East from 2008 to 2010 he decided to form a super team in Miami so that he could keep his easy path. LeBron is a still a great player but you can see him get tired at the end of games now. Father time beats all athletes and although he is still impressive and the best player on the planet, I think we are starting to see signs of the grind on his body. I think the playing more minutes than he ever has, had more to do with him wilting in game 2 than the neck injury.
LeBron is absolutely one of the most overrated players the NBA has ever had. If you were an alien from another planet and you just watched the last two games he played in and someone told you "The best player was in that game" the alien would go through at least 3 names before he got to Bron.He had a day. That day is over. He's LeDone.
I don't know how Lebron ever steps foot in Cleveland again if he takes off for Philly. "I know it was me who demanded we sign all these mediocre players to humongous contracts, but I am going to go to the state next door to win with them because they are younger and have a brighter future."I realize he brought a championship to CLE so they at least have something to celebrate, but ditching them twice for better teams seems a little much. At least going to LA provides him an entirely different excuse - regardless of how good the supporting cast he brings with them.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.
I think he flirts with the Knicks but ultimately signs with the Lakers. For LeBron, I think the last chapter of his career is about setting himself up for the aftermath. New York or LA are the places to be for the endeavor of setting yourself up business wise after basketball.
I don't think the off season is a good one for Lebron to re-calibrate. Team up with Paul George to win a championship? Really think Paul George gives him more than Kevin Love? George is a better player, but when you factor in redundancy of skill set, Love is a better team-mate for Lebron than George, no?Lebron's only hope is that Kawhi forces a trade to a team that will then have enough cap space to allow Lebron to sign up as a FA; or maybe willing to do a sign and trade with CLE (who may be open to that since they will be in rebuild mode anyway). I guess Lebron could sign with the Sixers, who then trade Fultz, Laker pick, Sixer picks, maybe Saric to entice Spurs to trade Leonard (Saric will be the sticking point probably, but Spurs would be smart to insist he be included, otherwise it would be an awful trade from their end). Yeah, the more I think about it, if the Sixers can get Leonard, they can get Lebron. This will put pressure on Boston to trade for Leonard, won't it? Part of a good offense is good defense, and vice versa. Celtics in a much better position to offer an enticing trade package than Philly. It is not even close, unless Philly includes Ben Simmons, which would be trading the future away for the present. Obviously Embiid is not touchable.Will be a very intriguing off season.
