One thing I gotta say, it's nice to see Lebron at the facility during the break.

Benefit of being in LA, he doesn't stay in Cleveland during the off season.

I think it’s bothering LeBron that he’s not in the Finals, and that’s part of why you see him showing up to the facility this often.

Pretty much 95% of the sports media has gone full-on National Enquirer. It's sad.

Do we Lakers fans see LeBron like how Warriors fans see KD? Kinda like a step child? SAS show talking about KD is kinda like A-Rod and the Yankees (Jeter/Kobe/Steph golden child)

The difference is that the Warriors were winning rings when KD joined.
The Lakers got Lebron to take us to the promise land.

For me, Lebron is that cousins I haven't seen in a long time. He's family, but I'm unfamiliar with him. But as time goes by and he brings us a championship, it's going to be all love. He's FAMILIA.

Um, so who is our Steph/Klay/Dray that won a ring already?

I still haven't fully accepted him. I'm waiting to see how the ripples he creates will affect the organization long term. If he leaves us in a situation like he created in Cleveland - with his friends on overpaid contracts, youth traded away - then signing him will be considered a mistake and he'll never be a Laker in my mind.

edit: if he brings a championship then all is forgiven

I see him as the in law that moves in for an extended period of time and doesn’t pay rent. He takes up bandwidth, uses up a bunch of water and electricity, drinks from the OJ carton, acts entitled to everything, leaves the bathroom a mess, and is critical of house dynamics. You put up with it all because he’s family... kinda.

Bear in mind, LBJ came when no one else did. Not Melo, LMA, DRoz, or even Greg Monroe of all people. So I give him credit for taking a huge risk without another all star alongside him, and he missed his first playoffs in over 10 years as a result.

I would like to know also.

Comparison can’t be made between KD going to the Warriors because of that very reason, KD is seen as jumping aboard a 73 win team to get more rings on a fast track and LeBron is in a ground zero situation where he’s being tasked with taking a team to the title.

Wow. It's like that huh?

KD joined a spaceship that was already orbiting the Earth; LBJ joined a sinking ship.

I give LBJ a ton of credit for taking that risk while KD had no risk in joining an already made juggernaut team.

He is just another player unless he wins something

It wasn’t much of a risk, he gets paid the max, his kids go to a basketball factory and he is close to his Hollywood entertainment business. I am sure he would love to win but if not, life is good.

He would have gotten a max (and a bigger deal on the Cavs). He left an easier road to the Finals to join a team with no proven players. He missed the playoffs for the first time since what, 2005? First missed Finals in 9 years. 3rd team all NBA. Some of it was on him, but yes, he took some basketball hits this year.

He took a giant basketball risk. No one is debating the off court stuff.

^^^THIS LBJ came to Los Angeles to end his career. He has Hollywood connections waiting in the wings.

Imo, his personal endeavors outweighed his basketball ones at this point in his career.

Let's revisit this after next season. 1st year was a crap show without another all star next to him.
