Organizing such a move means "title or bust" in LA. Neither Lebron has what it takes to pull it, nor Lakers has what it takes to win in 1st year. It wouldn't make sense for Lebron, but it would be a great coverage for media. That is why they are so hell-bent on trying to sell Lakers to him.

 

I think Lebron has finally hit the wall. He is 34. If he wants to continue ring-chasing, he should go to Houston. But he has nothing to show for it story-wise. I'm not sure how much he considers his family at this point either.

Hey Danish...

If you're houston, and LeBron wants to go there, is there a way to let CP3 walk, sign LeBron, and retain Capella?

 

I'd flip Cp3 for LBJ in a minute

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Sure, they could. But they would have to either give up Eric Gordon OR get out of Ryan Andersons deal.

 

They would never let CP3 walk though and they could get Lebron and still keep those guys by doing a sign and trade.

Starting to wonder if Morey may be considering that.  CP3, at this point in his career, is fool's gold because of his injury prone nature and mileage/ age.  Lebron at 34/35 and CP3 at what a year younger maybe but much more injury prone and all the wrong times too.

 

If I'm Lebron, Houston would be pretty high on my list, if they can keep Cappella.  And if I'm Morey, a swap of CP3 for Lebron on the same contract terms is a no brainer.

 

Morey is not going to waist Harden's prime.  He'll dump whatever he has to in order to upgrade the roster.  It's a good summer to answer the phone if he's calling.  Anderson and a draft pick, Gordon, maybe other assets will be up for grabs.

 

Then, where does CP3 land?  Anyone else willing to give him a supermax?  Philly would be a very interesting landing spot for a short term deal.  He'd make that team very scary.

Yea Morey is a very good gm and his track record suggests he has zero loyalty to players so he'll do anything if it means upgrading talent.

He should have been.

What with all the games he missed to injury during the season he was very well rested while Harden was carrying that team to a league best record.

How? He just won the MVP, making millions of dollars in endorsement due to being the prime star in a large market and is in the playoffs every year.

If Cp3 is to blame for wasting Harden's prime for being injured... then Harden can be blamed for playing like a weaker version of himself in the playoffs.

Obviously he is great.

The MVP award means jack.  Using it to justify someone's greatness is moot.

 

You are what you repeatedly do, and Harden repeatedly fades in the big moment and shows no leadership when it's all on the line.  He's a good scorer, but a lot like Carmelo, he can't be your number one guy if you want to win a ring.  The problem is he thinks he is that guy.

That's the biggest criticism of Harden and that was largely true til this season.  Harden was pretty damn good on both ends vs the Warriors.  The Warriors were just a better team.  Harden is also a MUCH better offensive weapon than Melo ever was.  I think he could be your #1 but then again how many #1's in the NBA right now that aren't Lebron, KD or Steph are true championship winner level #1s?  When the Spurs won Kawhi wasn't technically their #1 scoring option or best player.

Like I've said in a previous post.

Lebron's chances of going the Sparks are greater than the Clippers...
