I don't want to blame the "Kardashian Curse" but Tristan hasn't played well since his relationship with Khloe blossomed. I believe they're expecting a child.

It's been said Thompson didn't come into the season in shape. The Cavs are off to a horrible start. If they don't do well this season, WELCOME TO LOS ANGELES LeBRON. I like the possibility. He's on the downhill but he's still an elite player who just may be what the team needs to develop a winning culture.

I don't know if Kyrie is somewhere smiling, Celtics 6-2, Cavaliers 3-5.

Cavs are old.

Slow.

Not motivated.

Not sure about LBJ.

And they'll still likely make the NBA Finals and get embarrassed.

Does LBJ want to be remembered like the Buffalo Bills?

Say what you will about JBJ but he's seldom injured. I'm not on board with the PED rumors. I give more credit to him taking care of his body and he knows how to pace himself. He's Kobe like in that respect.

Him coming to the Lakers is good and bad. (G) He's been there done that. He'll bring leadership. (B) He's at the age when a basketball player's body starts to break down.

If he comes to LA his contract will be of significant importance. I hope Magic doesn't make it a Deng, Mozgov albatross.

Ray J actually revived his career because of Kim. Reggie and Humphries were out of their respective leagues years after breaking up with the Kardashians. Odom won a ring and 6th Man of the Year while with a Kardashian, and he had emotional/mental health and drug related issues prior to being with her.

Lamar was sixth man of the year, playing the best ball of his career when he was married to Khloe.

I don't think she was responsible for Odom's demise. I blame it on his being traded to Dallas. IMO the trade collapsed a fragile psyche.

I thought he was into marijuana. I believe the heavy stuff came after the trade.

Harden shook the scene before it had a chance to derail him. According to Khloe it was her idea they split because James cheated.

You talking about the Clippers? Because at least they have two established stars already instead of ones LeBron would have to wait 2-3 seasons for. Sorry to say, but it is what it is.

No. I think Lakers because of status. The Clippers don't have the luster of the Lakers. He has rings. It's all about the Benjamin's.

If things go as Magic plans, LBJ and PG13 will be Lakers. Paul George may switch reels and go to the Clippers.

Itís beautiful to see the Cavs in a free fall, thatís been our only hope of having a chance at LeBron, thank god we did not sign Rose or Wade, those guys wouldnít have done much here.

They could open up cap space but it would pretty much be Lebron, Blake, Teodosic and Gallinari. They might be able to turn Gallinari into two role players.

So after years on the team CP3 bolts leaving major $ on the table because he didn't think he Clippers were serious about winning but his good friend LeBron is going to draw a different conclusion? Doc, Griffin, Galo, LA's other team, very difficult to see that being James' play.
