    That's fine I guess but how often have we heard Lebron b**** about his teammates and "needing more talent" even when he has other all stars on the team. Also, he has b****ed about how his teammates need to have a IQ and a good understanding of basketball. As long as he doesn't b**** about these things anymore I am fine with it. Otherwise, this is the bed he made with an over-hyped front office that has proven nothing.

    Too bad, it was a long shot at best. Even if LBJ wanted to come here, Cavs would have had to play ball.

    If the Warriors top 4 stay together the next 3-4 years, LBJ will likely never win another championship. But it seems clear that that wasn't his top priority.

    Lebron will never back to the finals again. I hope we sweep his ass in the regular season.

    Lebron clearly cares more about off court money than rings at this point in his career. It's pretty sad to see he doesn't have the MJ mentality.

    No, sir.

    I'm sorry, but LeBron James and Paul George will be Lakers.

    I’m sorry, but you need a hobby or some contact with a female. It will help you with your trolling and insecurities.

    I know the ship has sailed. But could Cleveland do a sign-and-trade (if it meets BYC requirements)? Might be a way to net something while cutting luxury tax.

    Why is this fool handing the Warriors another championship? Might as well stay in Cleveland. smh The NBA media will be insufferable this year with all the Lakers and Warriors talk. I'll probably be watching even less of basketball this year, outside of the rockets. We will already know the results for the 3rd consecutive year.

    Actually, I believe this too. Lebron’s opting out was to help LA. Makes too much sense. Just hope spurs don’t cave.

    Please read my other posts to see what I do professionally. Ive And already laid out why I know LeBron and PG are going to be Lakers.

    And I am married with two kids and another on the way. I have plenty of hobbies. I thought I'd share some Lebron-related information that I am privy to if anyone is interested.

    Let me know if you can find anything that turns out or has already turned out to be false about the info I've shared.
