Okaay Guys, I think its time to open this thread..
So there are multiple rumours and reports about LBJ being unhappy again in Cleveland and that he becomes a Free Agent in 2018 and has LA as his destination, or in that case, lets say option.. He might consider leaving Cleveland for a second time..
So we all know his agent is KCPs agent too. Does this might have an effect on the FA 2018 ? Probably.. Will it have an effect? We dont know yet. All I want to ask you guys..
LeBron is currently 32 years old. He turns 33 in December. How time flys,right? So that makes him 33,5 years old in the summer of 2018.
If,....IF he signs with the Lakers.., what will his role be?
Clearly LeBron would be an UPGRADE to any basketball team, especially to our youth,growth and rhytmn heading into the right and new direction. BUT on the other hand, LeBrons arrival could also be a disfunction in this progress of this "LAKERS YOUTH MOVEMENT". Because all the expectations and hype will be set again on LBJ. All the hero-ball etc. callings will settle on LeBron and he will be called to action and will be the person in charge... I dont want this. I dont want LeBron to be our leader for this young core...
So here is my idea.
Why dont we handle LeBron like a veteran and give him the same role as the warriors did with Andre Iguodala in 2014-15 ? He came via trade and established himself a role as a true veteran prescence of the bench! Of course you can not imagine LeBron coming off the bench with 33 years old, probably still avering 20+ points, but you can imagine him slowing down in minutes per game etc. Plus he can play the 4, which makes Brandon Ingram settle on the 3 position...
You can chose between a lot of options, but at the end of the day it all comes down to how Lonzo-Ingram and Co. will work out and how the Cavaliers road is determined and how their destiny is going to be come next season.
Who knows..maybe its also just everything summer talk and LeBron will re-sign with the Cavs, ..at the end of the day we all know it by summer of 2018...
