    No, he wouldn't. LeBron's reign is over. Just watch

    He probably could, I don't see why not. Green is almost doing it.

    probably could but that's only if they play small ball every single game and for the majority of the game. Right now they mainly do it in spurts and to close out games when they need to.

    Perhaps yes, perhaps no.

    I think there is a chance he could but there is also a chance he could not.

    Garlon Green would average a triple double on the Warriors.

    He wouldn't accept the Draymond Green role, nor should he necessarily. He'd be the primary ball handler and the dynamic would be completely different. LeBron has never played in a disciplined offense before.

    I suppose he could average a triple double there (I believed he could in Houston had he signed 2 years ago) - but I'm not sure they'd remain so fluid on offense.

    Lol, yeah, I don't think he'd take the diminished role... But sure, it'd be a lot easier for him than in Cleveland.

    He would on quite a few teams if he accepts that role. However, is it better than now? I would think it is a waste of Lebron's talent to have him in Green's role.

    Why would he? Cleveland say they have a better team than GSW. Cleveland said Kryie and Kevin are better than Draymond and Klay.

    But, can LeBron set moving screens?

    Lebron would have never left Miami if he knew two super teams would be forming out West. I bet he wishes he had a time machine.

    Depends. Does he flick boogers at his teammates?

    Depends on whether he adjusted his play style to fill the same role. He's never gotten that close in either assists or rebounds before.

    If he was happy distributing like Draymond does without slowing the pace, sure.

    If he wants to score 25, no chance.

    Lebron can average a triple double every season...if that was his goal.

    Not sure. Why would he get more rebounds?

    Also he'd play fewer minutes because they blow everyone out. He'd also play off the ball more
