Let's just say the trade deadline hadn't passed, and Cleveland was getting very concerned about LeBron leaving. They call up Sam Presti and say "we'll give you LeBron for Kevin Durant". Do the Thunder do it? Would the Cavs (in real life, in this scenario they made the offer) consider this? Could either team win the title after this deal? Discuss. Personally, I think it comes down to this: if the Thunder really think LeBron is committed to winning, they make the deal, because OKC gives LeBron the best chance to win multiple titles (which is what he says he wants), but if they think he just wants to be a global icon, they pass.

too similar to the "would you rather build with Lebron or Durant" thread. and the answer is still, Lebron.

No they wouldn't because OKC front office would have the same concern of Lebron leaving. They were lucky that Blazers picked Oden, so to trade Durant after that would be just plain stupid.

No they keep Lebron James and possibly have a chance of winning the title. If they trade for Durant they fall to 4th in the east maybe even worse.

No because Lebron wouldn't stay in OKC, otherwise (if they had similar contracts), it's a no-brainer.
