I think he'd be best off in the East and with a young, hungry team that can cover his ass defensively so he can focus on everything else. If it was possible, a team like Milwaukee

Not sure why but all I can envision after reading this is an old cliche moment from a movie.

West on one side, Magic on the other and Lebron in the middle with a confused and indecisive look on his face as both try to lure him to jump in their arms.

Lebron wont be that stupid to move to western conference n got killed by the warriors before reaching the finals. Eastern conference will guarantee him another free walk to the finals. Another chance to paddle the stats is not to be missed!


LeBron isn't scare of playing against the Warriors, he just want better teammates. This idea that he would stay in the East, just so he can make the finals, and lose is stupid. You really think Jerry West wanted to go 1-8 in the NBA finals.

If the Lakers can sign him and PG, he would have two guys in Ingram and George who can guard Durant, freeing him up to guard Draymond. If they draft Ball, he would have two guys who can handle in Ball and Russell, so he doesn't have to do all of the playmaking. The Cavs roster outside of Kyrie is hot garbage, and they don't have any picks. Hell, Richard Jefferson and Kyle Korver are both 36, and they were the best players off the bench for Cleveland.

Kyrie Irving and the rest are still his best teammates right now. Together they will walk to the finals in the Easy East. The remaining of stars are aligned in the West: West Brook, Durant, Curry, Kahwi Leonard, Aldridge, Chris Paul, and many more. Lebron is not that stupid to go to Western conference without tearing apart the team he joins. Unless, of course, he wants to come for cheap.

Jefferson and Kyle Korver are not as old as Ray Allen when Allen's three gave Lebron his dreamt ring. As supporting casts, those two are still great supproting casts capable of important minutes. Funny how they become instant craps when Lebron lost.

The last time I check, BBall is team ball. Not one on one match up. Do you know why the Warriors are hard to beat? They work like a well-oiled machine.

Lebron isn't leaving Cleveland again. If he does, they won't be burning his jersey, they'll burn down his mansion(s).

Lebron wouldnt come here. He wants to run the show and Magic is not gonna be his puppet like Griffin in Cleveland is.

Lebron is playing with his hand picked roster in Cleveland. If anyone is at fault its him for demanding Wiggins be traded for Klove.

$27 M. per to the big 3, if someone needs to take slightly less LeBron would happily do so much $$ coming from other places.....


That team beats GSW in 6 games. 2nd year Lonzo at 21 years old at 6'7" will shut down a 30 year old Curry.

They'd have the cap space to do it, I think. I mean the team would be old as dirt and probably get rocked in round 1 though.

LeBron isn't gonna go to a team full of players who are losers, at least with the Lakers he will come to a team with a nice young core of players and a chance for him to team up with the FAs we bring in plus the fact that he has more respect for Magic then he does for Ballmer.

If Lebron can come to the Lakers and win 2-3 championships (of course with the help of Magic and Rob constructing him a great supporting cast) I'd put him over Kobe and MJ.

Yes despite his 5 Finals losses.
Lebron winning chips for the Lakers and in the Wild West would make me forget all that losing ever happened.

Lebron never seemed to be a player that bought into team legacies. Which is why he went to Miami and then back to Cleveland. I actually think there is a bigger chance of him going to the Clippers rather than the Lakers since he would have a tough act to follow wearing the purple and gold.

Quote:
The George scenario has been omnipresent for some time, and Cleveland's loss in the 2017 NBA Finals has led Lakers officials to hear more whispers about LeBron James' interest in a final chapter in Los Angeles, where his wife would like to live full time, per sources. The Lakers have long known the appreciation James, who grew up a fan of the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys, holds for their iconic brand.


.....Happy Wife Happy Life?

Im not a Lebron fan. But hey, that 34 yr old is way better than any players in the league not named Durant & Curry.
Also to think that he always bring his new team to the Finals or Championships in his 1st year.
Might as well have him max 2-3 years title run w/ PG13 & young core.

and...Magic is a Lebron Fan. Take note, none of the players in the current Lakers roster are Magic & Pelinka players. They are all from the past Jim/Mitch era.
