    He is not in the same league as Michael Jordon who won 6 titles with the SAME team. I will laugh if the lakes lose to the warriors again. Go Kevin Curry. He's the real deal. I like Lebron but he has too much power. I'm jealous. LOL.

    Exactly why would he go to the Lakers? Because it's LA? I seem to hear this same story for the past 5 years that EVERY free agent wants to come to the Lakers, except they don't. You sometimes hear it about the Knicks too, which makes even less sense. The Lakers need 2 superstars to be a contender.

    If LeBron James goes to any team on the west, I don't see a championship for any team on the east for the next three to five years....at least.

    Terrible leader, terrible teammate, terrible motivator! And now his skills will be taking a dip every year from here on.
    *He will immediately suck the soul from the team & run off all real talent WAKE UP PEOPLE, LEBRON IS NOT THE ANSWER!*

    No wonder there's so much hate for KD lol... The powers be wanted Lebron to win titles and cement herself as goat. I mean himself. Do you see how everyone is pushing for this!!! Almost like these guys were paid to push a script.. People think KD messed up the league. In reality, he actually saved the league..and forced teams to step up. Lebron been having it to easy for the past 7 years in the East...pretending to be the greatest. Showing off against the trash teams like bucks, knicks atl etc... then crumble when he faces real stars like KD and Kawhi.... He would be happy to play with kawhi.. he wouldn't want that dude guarding him. So lets watch the league try to give him another super team...and then pretend he does all the work. If you give lebron Kyrie and all the best players in the league..they will still find a way to say Lebron is doing all the work. Winning a ring alongside Lebron is like not winning a ring at all. You will get zero credit. That's why Kyrie left and that's why I advise no good players to play with lebron. And lakers, lets see how lebron work with such a young coach???? Lebron doesn't humble himsef and respect anyone.. soon or later he will become the coach and the other players will lose respect for the real coach and the team will crumble in disunity.

    Why would LeBron want to go to a team lead by a guy with AIDS???
    Magic still had AIDS right !!!
    Why does no one remember that he cheated on his wife and got AIDS ???
    I hope that LeBron gets smart and doesn't put his life in risk by catching AIDS from the Lakers.

    As a Laker fan, this is what I wanna see... Lakers July 1st get Paul George, Lebron, and either Boogie Cousins, or Deandre Jordan..... we let go of Randell and Deng and Isaiah Thomas, and whoever else they need to make room, Lakers keep Ingram, Kuzma, Ball, KCP, and whoever else showed they deserve to stay... As for the Spurs, we give them one option, if they take it, fine, if not, we dont care.... Kawhi, for Randell, Deng, Isaiah Thomas, Josh Hart, our draft picks, and some cash. If they dont want to trade.. the Lakers go with what they have, and what they have is a lot, Ball, Playoff Paul, Lebron, Kuzma/Ingram, Cousins/Deandre Jordan..... they can take the season to really gel, maybe even win a championship... next year, you have Kawhi for FREE.

    Why would he want to go to the lakers? Or the west at all lol, it’s been a free ride for him over in the eastern conference. He doesn’t have this streak of making it to the finals if he had played in the West all those years lol.

    The man's a great player but he's also almost 34 and you know he has wear and tear playing at his insane level through the years. My local team is the Hornets and I would rather see us build towards the future than beg and plead for "the goat" ESPECIALLY when the Warriors are gonna run the NBA for the near future anyways.

  • Vann Apragal
    Vann Apragal 11 months ago

    Only way anyone can beat the Warriors or even compete is to be team that is constantly moving the ball. That means you need 5 great ball passers. There is no way lakers can even compete even with adding Le Ron, Kwai and Paul George. No chance! #mikedrop!

    I think that since LeBron James is exponentially getting bigger and more massive every second,
    that it is inevitable that he will collapse in on himself and become an actual supermassive black hole, and form his own GALAXY. . .

    C'mon guys, it it's science. . .

    Why would he go to LA to live in Kobe's shadow? Nah. He should stay home and get someone to Cleveland. The east is trash. He can guarantee a trip to the finals probably next year. Why go west?

    ...friends with CP, Melo..but unfortunately, theyre injury prone, where Lebron is like made of titanium, never an injury, not even a twisted ankle. his stamina and agility is like a mutant.

    LeBron cannot go to Kobe's Lakers, nor Jordan's Bulls. if he leaves the East..A. no reason to watch east conf games, which hurts the league. B. he will not make it back to finals.
    I know he misses warm weather and sunlight, but can't go back to Miami, wants to be in entertainment, moving near Hollywood seems ideal, but
    really might as well ride out the rest in Cleveland, keep trying to trade for better players..damn J.R. just fvkd their confidence up after that.
