This has all the earmarks of NBA click bait.

Oh, it absolutely is.  SAS is just doing his job grabbing viewers.

But, if Lebron wanted to compete with the Warriors immediately, is there really a better team in the NBA for him to try to join?  If Cleveland would go for a Hayward trade (a player they've been linked to in the past), you've got a team that has five stellar options in the starting lineup, plus a deep bench.

You trade Hayward (in this situation), say goodbye to CBS

I doubt that very much.  Stevens is loyal to the Celtics, not Hayward.

Disagree

Sure he's got a history with Hayward.

He's got a history with all kinds of players.  He has yet to resign from the Celtics because of Danny's decision to trade / cut ties with any of them.

Would Cleveland accept a trade of James Johnson + Dion Waiters + Justice Winslow for Lebron opted into his player option next year?

Then Miami starts Dragic, Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson, Lebron, and Whiteside?  With Wade (resigned) and Olynyk playing the key roles off the bench.  Not bad, maybe better than what he has now, but not blowing me away.

Can Miami do any better than that?  I don't imagine that's Lebron's best situation out of all of his options.  Miami doesn't have a 2018 or 2021 first round pick to continue growing their future talent pool with nor even a second round pick until 2022, although they could buy a few.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline Philly 76ers

Guards:  A Bradley / Covington / Redick / Fultz / Bayless / Luwawu / Korkmaz
Forwards:  Saric / Simmons (point forward) / Trev Booker / J Anderson
Center:  Embiid / THE BOBAN / R Holmes

Picks: 2018 LAL 1st (if 1, 6-30), 2019 SAC 1st (if LAL 2-5), 2018 2nds from BKN, NYK, HOU, and 2019 SAC 2n

Miami is always a dark horse. Always.

Bam looks like a good piece. Winslow is still a young asset. Maybe someone out there likes Whiteside (I don't). Johnson, Richardson, Dragic, and Olynyk are good role players. They have the contracts and the pieces to make it happen.

If they were somehow able to trade for Leonard and James, while keeping Bam, Dragic, Waiters, Johnson, and Olynyk, that would be a really good team.

I don't think they have the ability to make it happen yet, but they are always a dark horse.

I think it was something to stir the pot, however, I was just remarking that no national stories were outside of Boston.   It happened soon after, and I know it had nothing to do with it but wow.

So CBS would turn down his dream job, and one of the best positions to be in, simply because one of his favorite players got traded? You don't think Stevens felt some modicum of empathy and emotion with Isaiah Thomas, when he got traded too?

I really don’t think they would.  Cleveland is set to be a repeater tax team next year if LeBron stays — and fairly far above the tax line.  If they take back $20+ million in salaries from a LeBron trade, they’ll be into the tax by a decent amount.  There’s no way they sign up for that without LeBron.  Meanwhile, Miami has a lot of contracts that aren’t going to be dumpable since there are multiple years left on them, and cap space is very scarce next season.  Miami would have to give Cleveland a lot of compensation to be willing to take on those contracts.

I know LeBron could try to power play and say he’ll just sign somewhere as a free agent if Cleveland doesn’t agree to the Miami deal, but I think the Cavs might find that preferable to what Miami can offer.

I never understood the “Lebron needs to be in LA to be in the entertainment industry”.
