    You know I get it that the national media hates us and we are not LA or NY but after Chicago, isn't Houston like the 4th biggest market out there? It's not like we are some small market team that is constantly getting dissed here..

    His entire career has centered around reporting on LeBron, but as far as I know, he's never actually broken any major news regarding LeBron.

    I’m leaning LeBron choosing somewhere other than Houston. That said, could be leaked info for leverage as well. You just never know until you do.

    I can tell you this Lebron isn't going to stay in Cavs or to the Lakers.

    Dan Gilbert just said he can win a championship without Lebron.

    Ball and kuzma made a diss track dissing each other. That's going to be uncomfortable next season between the two rookies. Lebron ain't going to like playing with kids.

    Is it just a coincidence that we haven't heard one positive report on Lebron to Houston?

    More like his lackey - don't know what the dude is going to do once LeBron retires. I can see it now:
    Anchor: Live from LeBron's retirement house, here's Brian Windhorst...Windy, so what is LeBron doing these days?
    Windhorst: Well, I can tell you that he has been playing lots and lots of shuffleboard along with the occasional bridge game. His opponents have learned the hard way that LeBron does not like to lose.

    Not at all, right now is all about generating leverage over Cleveland to force a trade. If all of the talk is about Lebron walking for nothing then it'll encourage the Cavs to agree to a trade so that they get something.

    It’s two friends making jokes at each other, that’s all between Ball and Kuz. The only thing I think LeBron will not like is Lavar and I can see Magic moving Lonzo to get Lavar out of there for LeBron.

    WHAT IF LeBron has some positive PED tests with the league and the Snake Demon himself, Adam Silver, is using it as leverage to move L-BJ to the league's beloved Lakers.

    I miss David Stern.

    I can also see laker trade away both rookies for another star to play with lebron if he goes there.

    "...there's no way to make him fit on that roster."

    No way to make him fit salary wise or basketball wise? He later says "not feasible" "under the rules" so I think he's talking fit salary wise but I know the media questions both of those.

    "They're gonna lose Capela, lose Ariza, lose Gordon, lose Mbah a Moute, lose the entire roster, gut the roster just to make it fit!" --> They were never going to gut their roster. Now maybe they would for LeBron but it was always going to be the CP3 route.

    And basketball wise media be like "There's only one ball! 3 ball dominant players! Never gonna work!"

    In-N-Out is the most overrated burger joint in America without question

    Windhorst knows the Cavs need to be convinced he's going to L.A. to force a S&T.

    LeBron James to Houston?

    Michael Corleone: "Rocco?"

    Rocco: "Difficult. Not impossible."

    It's sad how little these bozos know about the CBA.
