Way too much LeBron to GS talk going on.

This would be the move for LeBron if he wants to compete for more titles, not just in the immediate future, but long-term.

 

And he could screw over Kyrie in the process if he cares about that. 

 

Putting that jersey on may not be ideal for him, though.

Yea, LBJ going to Boston is kind of good on many levels.

 

For one, he isn't going to a team with a bunch of established stars.  It has Kyrie and Horford but Horford isn't some elite stud.  

 

They do have some very good young players but its not like he is hurting his legacy (if he even cares) by joining a team with a bunch of top talent.

 

Also, what I see happening would be a Kawhi deal...Kyrie would be in the deal..along with names like Rozier, Brown and others...Tatum being the one off limits.

 

So, LeBron/Kwahi/Horford/Tatum.

And Hayward?

 

Can see trading Kyrie... but don't see them trading Kyrie and Rozier.

Leonard, Tatum, Hayward are really all 3's aren't they?

Forgot about Hayward.

 

Ehh, who cares.  Basketball is basically position less now.  They can make it work.

Kyrie or Hayward would very likely need to be in the deal for LeBron (he would opt in and get traded like CP3 did).

Russillo said LeBron won't really consider Boston though.

Is it the black athlete in Boston thing?

 

It has been reported that he will meet with them.

He didn't elaborate. His history competing against that franchise may have something to do with it, but the city and the racism may be factors too.

Hope not. Can't simultaneously want LeBron to win a couple more rings, and be okay with that shit city getting anymore championships.

I know KG had his trepidations about going there but I don't recall him having issues.

 

Of course, all LeBron has to do is not win a title and the hate will come spewing out. (it may come anyway of course)

I don't see why he would leave the East.

 

Lots of things match up for him to go to LA though.

 

My pick is Philly.

Boston is the best basketball fit.

 

LA is the best business and lifestyle fit.

 

Philly may be the best hybrid.

 

Houston is interesting too.

Does anyone buy the GS talk?  I don't.  I don't think it would be good for either side.  I mean, they would obviously win the title but I don't think it is good for the legacy talk for either.

His legacy is already shot. Hes so desperately chased rings for a decade now. So go to Golden State and get more irrelevant rings

The only way Golden State makes any sense is if Durant opts out and leaves.

Sign and trade? interesting. i guess it's possible, don't see it though. 

 

Should be fun to watch whatever he does.
