    I still think it was at the 2-yard line... Just on the opposite side of the field, so there's that.

    The “LeBron to Houston” hype was entirely fan driven.

    I never got the vibe he seriously considered us.

    Bron is being polite. I seriously doubt if he considered Houston at all. The team had no money to sign him.
    Don't tell that to hollic.

    Bron would’ve made the worst decision of his career coming here...the Lakers are already better and have a much brighter future

    imagine if Bron had come here to play with aging CP3 on a 4 year deal, Harden who has 1 of the highest usage rates in the league every year plus doesn’t play off-ball, and zero depth

    he gets to play in Staples with a young team instead of empty TC and the oldest roster in the league

    looking back, it seems crazy that I ever thought we had a legit chance

    Where's the choice for "I found out that Texas was a red state so I decided to not come"?

    My newsletter said that was the reason.

    Very much anticipating Holic's explanation of the inner backdoor secret dealings that completely contradict what LeBron just said but is, in fact, the 100% factual account of what actually happened

    I was right! What do I win?

    A 12-14 record and second to last in the West.

    Are we going to ignore if Lebron came to Houston he and Morey would have connected dynotherms to form GM Voltron and bring Kawhi and AD to Houston?

    There is nothing that Lebron can't do, there is nowhere he can go that would be a bad decision. LEBRON OWNS THE NBA. The NBA would have supported his decision if he wanted to go to f-cking Europe. The NBA would have made Real Madrid an expansion team for Lebron to bring an NBA championship to Spain.

    Lebron comes to Houston and Sergio Lull becomes a naturalized American citizen and plays in the G-League. There is nothing he can't do. There is nothing the NBA won't do for him. THERE ARE NO BAD DECISIONS FOR LEBRON JAMES!
