I am guessing that their shoes and marketing will take a hit after the first year. I think people bought LBJ for his stats and clearly his PPG and probably other stats will be down. I think he wont be in contention for MVP even he said himself his PPG will go down. I think he is going to lose alot of endorsements to Kobe and Durant. I think when people buy shoes they want the teams star player no one wants to buy Pau Gasol over Kobe. Paul Pierce and KG made it to the finals and there endorsements have lessened. I think KG had more endorsements in MN when he had to do everything. I think thats what people like. They dont want to buy Pippen. All I am saying is you have LBJ who might put up this stat line 23 PPG 6 RPG 4 APG and then you have Durant at 30 PPG 7 RPG and 5 APG. I think people buy the player who is the man and I think thats why LBJ and Wade were so popular they were the man for their teams but now neither of them can claim that title

This. The NBA Forum is getting boring and a bit predictable. I'm a Heat fan and I'm even tired of talking about LeBron all of the time.

Isn't it obvious that Lebron would sell more merch because he just changed teams, so all his fans are going to need that new jersey?

This thread could have been avoided by using deductive reasoning.

What hit? Just because people on PSD hate Lebron now doesn't mean the rest of the world does.... I go on facebook the other day and there was at least 50 statuses involving the Miami Heat and how great they were...

You could just as easily make a case that says his stats will go up. LBJ could become a walking talking triple double waiting to happen with teammates like Wade and Bosh. It also helps them to have more uncontested shots. All im saying is that theres enough ball to go around in a game to allow LeBron and Wade to each have 30 ppg and Bosh 25 ppg. Thats only 85 points if they want to be that greedy and the rest of the points can come from great bench role players like Jerry Stackhouse, Mike Miller, Raja Bell, Udonis Haslem, and hopefully Tmac or AI. Those players could take the hit on the offense if anything.

This statement is completely false. LeBron will make more money in Miami. Much more. He's already more popular than ever. Assuming he wins a few ships with his new team will only add to that. Miami is much bigger than Cleveland. More fans and more business opportunities. Red and black are the best colors for basketball sneakers. LeBron is hotter than ever right now.

Im pretty sure Kobe was like the most marketable star even though Shaq was on the team. Why would this be any different?
