Now that Lebron has won his ring who does the focus shift to now? Melo, KD, Howard. Who do you say?

Dwight I think right now simply because the spotlight is on him and where he will go. However I fell that OKC will be contending for titles in the near future and if they cant get it down the focus will quickly turn to KD.

Before D-Rose got injured I'd say he was on the list. I think it's Howard and honestly don't think all the pressure is off Lebron/Wade/Bosh. When they became the next big trio they said more then one. So IMO while it takes a load off that trio, there is still some pressure to live up to that claim.

The guy who owns the CAVS. It would be funny if lebron wins 3 or more rings and the CAVS dont even make the playoffs LOL.

Carmelo could care less...KD is still young, rose is injured, cp3 has to make conf finals first. Must be Howard.

The most pressure to win a ring is on Lebron to repeat.

Dwight will join his tier if he joins an elite team, but not otherwise. KD still has one more year of leeway before he'll feel any true pressure, but he and Westbrook will place it on themselves regardless.

Rose won't join the discussion again until 2014 and unfortunately no title is expected of Cp3 on the Clips.

So:

Lebron



KD/Possibly Dwight

That's about it.

It will still be on LeBron. I don't believe anyone will have more pressure than LeBron as long as he is on his prime.

Other than LeBron it has to be on the superstar who has the most help and who came up short after being favored to win it all in the finals that is KD.

No one else comes in the discussion unless another super-team is formed somehow.

I don't think there is a lot of pressure on anybody. Nobody expects much out of the guys in NY right now. CP3 is in a new city and people will expect progress, but not a ring, everybody knows that unless he lands in LA, Howard will not be winning anytime soon because who ever trades for him is going to have to give up all their assests and if he waits to sign somewhere next season, no contender will be under the cap. Rose is injured. Durant is still young, so I don't think there is pressure on him and nobody else really comes to mind.

The pressure to win really only comes when you are on top and haven't won. James was the only three-time MVP playing who hadn't won. There isn't anybody of LBJ's stature for the pressure to be on.

That said, LBJ put the pressure on himself to win not one, not two, not three.... so i would say the pressure is still squarely on James to win.

Howard definitely. I would also say Melo and Amare because of all the hype they get with the Knicks..

2 things people have been saying his whole career, pass more and play defense. Dude is a beast on the offensive side, but thats about it. He has to change his mindset.
