Lebron will NOT come here, I'll bet on that. He does not want to re-live the previous FA fiasco.

I dont think that will be an issue, last time he left cleveland, his home team, the team that drafted him and a city that was left dry that had already suffered insurmountable amounts of awful pain through sport.

However I just dont see him leaving Miami regardless. Why leave Miami for LA especially right now his a defending champion??

Also another point in 2014, Lebron will be 29-30? We dont know well an unathletic Lebron will be. This is not a Kobe Bryant. So by the time Lebron is 33, he could REALLY slow down just like Wade is starting to show signs of that inability to drive = becoming useless.

Anyways lets speculate this at the end of the 2014 season or at least at the end of this season -_-


Except he's about 260, 6'8, has supreme court vision and can handle the ball. I know age takes away a lot of things but I'm pretty sure those things will stay in tact. Dwyane Wade is an undersized guard that is just coming off knee surgery and has been known to get pretty banged up throughout his entire career, Lebron is just a mismatch to pretty much every player in the league and has been so durable its almost funny. There's just no comparison there especially now that Lebron has learned to work in the post. If the Lakers have a chance to get Lebron, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever for them not to do everything in their power to get him.

Is this going to be the start of the 2000-page long Lebron thread?

I don't understand why people think LeBron is gonna fall of a cliff between now and 2014. I don't see that happening at all because he has really improved his low post game. Last season and particularly in the playoffs he was just very dominant down on the low block. You didn't see that much at all in Cleveland, but ever since he's been in Miami LeBron has really improved his game on the post. He also has a much improved jumper. He's shooting just under 44 percent from the three point line. Kevin Love is a very good player, but LeBron is the best in the league choosing Love over a guy like that would be stupid.

Ok answer me this if his jumper isn't much improved than how is that he's shooting over 40 percent from 3 point range?

People would like players that game isn't centered around athleticism... so when they get older they will still be able to contribute at a high level

I see a better combo in Kobe/George/Howard if possible ..

 

Me personally, i'd rather compete against him than competing with him.

Yeah, anyone who says they'd stop being a Laker fan for good if LeBron wore the jersey clearly exposes themself as an obvious Kobe fan first & foremost purely, no Laker fan.

Yeah she can't compare the Lakers to the Knicks. Unlike the Knicks, the Lakers have a big market and rich basketball tradition. To use a baseball analogy, the Lakers = Yankees, the Knicks = Dodgers (sorry Dodger fans).

If losing you as a fan is what will take LeBron to come here I'm sure the Lakers organization will gladly do it.

He is the best player in the game by a country mile, he wouldn't be playing under the shadow of Kobe or anyone else.
