    Do you think if he stayed in Cleveland wit Mo Williams he would have been able to beat da Boston Celtics big 4 and da NBA regular season best Chicago Bulls wit MVP Derrick Rose four times apiece and be on his way to da Finals right now?

    I say it aint no way in hell, woulda been another second round exit, if he made it that far.

    They would have won their first round series, but as always, they wouldn't have had enough to beat the top teams that have more firepower. Maybe they could have taken the Bulls, who follow a similar model, but with a lesser player.

    Lebron probably would have had his third straight MVP, though.

    Dumb question

    Thats why he left.

    Funny how the Cavs was a pile of sh** the year before he was drafted and back to being a pile of sh** just one year after he left

    Wrong. More people would have been happy if he would just have been honest like Carmelo. Nobody wants him to rot. It's how he went about it.

    Worst PR moves for Lebron were "The Decision" followed by "The big 3 party" in Miami where they claimed they were gonna win 7-8 titles. THAT's what turned people off Lebron, basically how he took a dump all over his fan base and made himself a clear douche bag.

    Had he been honest like Melo probably only Cleveland would have disliked him. Overall, I bet he would have been even more popular though. He basically screwed himself.

    You think people aren't going to flock back to him once he wins a few titles? Winning is everything in sports.

    When your rings are tainted by coat-tail riding? Yeah. Some will go back to the winner no matter what but right now Lebron is in a no win proposition. Even if he wins it won't be because he was THE man, he is just the CO-man. He will have to share equal glory with Wade no matter what, unlike MJ who always made himself superior to Pippen at least in the public eye. Lebron, on his own team, will always have one ring less than Wade.

    Say what you will about winning, but for many winning is not everything, it's HOW you win that matters. And stupid as it may be, MJ set the standard and Lebron ain't close to it.

    That being said, I expect years going by, winning rings and other players making themselves bigger idiots than him will cause his popularity to rise some again and bring him back to his proper level of respect for his amazing talents. But he will never be as popular as MJ, Magic and Bird were. Lebron reached the top of his popularity in Cleveland.

    He wouldve have been a 3 time mvp hands down....

    The Lebron cavs couldve beaten the bulls as they are basically another one trick pony team

    But they would have been bounced by the celtics once again

    Eh When you watch the heat play its obvious who the alpha dog is on that team, they didnt start really playing well until they handed the keys to lebron and established that dwade is complementary as he should be.

    Winning is everything........I mean not to knock anyone else but if people can forgot about someones alleged felony because they won 2 rings then im pretty sure in july people will be like "what decision?"

    Things would be different. Moves could have been made at the trade deadline to change up that team. Maybe bring in more veteran help. Also it changes free agency.
