What would the reaction be? Different from KD? Let's say they win five rings together - putting LeBron at 7 rings. Does he surpass MJ according to some?

I don't think Lebron is brave enough to do that. KD has a special mental strength to be able to handle the mean things people say and still win. Lebron would wilt under that pressure. He would take the easy route and join a worse team.

Lebron fans would revel in how great it is.

Lebron haters would give the current KD treatment.

People just to love to have something to complain about.

We're talking about if it happened, though. Like, KD is probably going to win a ring this season. Would it have been better if LeBron had joined the Warriors and bump his Finals record to seven rings? How would others have reacted to LeBron surpassing Jordan in rings?

There is a clear difference between LeBron and everyone else. He was hailed the KING at like age 15. He has had so much to live up to, his career has been a constant of people hating, or defending him. Durant doesn't even sniff him when it comes to polarizing arguments.

LeBron, would have been absolutely crushed if he did what Durant did. Like crushed beyond belief.

i am curiours though how that team would gel. Lebron likes having the ball in his hands, hes is a very streaky shooter so you can leave him out until he gets hot. Im sure they would of figured it out but for obvious reasons KD is a better fit

Lebron would have gotten crushed regardless then he would dominate and people would elevate and say how great he is similar to what they are doing with KD now and main stream media asking if KD passed LBJ

They would win guaranteed rings, no? Would you say the Warriors lose with LeBron on their team instead of KD? Like, let's put it this way: Right now, the only team we gave a chance to were the Cavs. Without LeBron, there is no Cavs. No competition whatsoever. And I do agree that KD is a better fit just like how Kawhi on the Warriors > KD. But I'd take my chance that LeBron beats this Warriors team over KD ever beating a Warriors team with LeBron.

Lol we know he would have gotten completely crushed. Like you said in the other thread flash many people that defend Durant also strongly dislike lebron. They wouldn't defend him in this same way because of that and outside of the extreme nut huggers everyone else would still hate the competition aspect.

The Warriors fans still would maybe be as happy lol.

KD is a better fit? No way. LeBron would have averaged Magic Johnson numbers. 20ppg / 15apg / 8rpg. He finally would have gotten to be the player he always wanted. Set the table for your teammates, pick your spots on drives, and make the right basketball play all the time. In some ways that scenario would have prevented him from reaching his true greatness but in other ways it would have been his dream come true.

It would have been bad, but not as bad as Durant

LeBron didn't lose to GS because he choked like Durant did, then joined the team he choked against.
LeBron already had 2 rings

Now the reason it would have been bad is because joining the team that beat you is the weakest thing possible, and Bron had promised Cleveland a title.

KD is the better fit precisely because he's a better shooter, though. And at this age, I think KD's defense is more sustainable for an entire season because LeBron has too much mileage at this point. I don't think the passing is that much of a necessity. LeBron is a bit more ball-dominant than KD so it's counter-intuitive to have LeBron handling the ball THAT much. And he's not a good shooter at all so there is no need for LeBron to stand there wide open. The way I see it is that although KD may be a better fit, does anyone think KD can beat a LeBron-Warriors team? The odds are literally zero. LeBron beating this Kevin-Warriors team is a much higher possibility.

Come on man don't be silly. I would throw up and Green would walk off the team and retire right on the spot.

Just give James time. He will out do everyone once again in free agency when the Super Friends, Banana Boat team is formed. Until then James is now Durants little brother and James is guarding Durant like a little brother.

LeBron on the Warriors would be very interesting ... I'd put him in the middle of the offense with all the motion around him. He'd slice up every team.

Yea, I noticed this too. It's like his dominance is too much sometimes.

For example, lebron is better than KD, straight up, but no way in hell I want is trading KD for lebron. Cuz then we'll play lebron ball, not Warriors ball. KD allows us to play Warriors ball

That LeBron orbit issue is convenient for him though because people look at his teams and say "but LeBron had to drag that roster along".

Yes because everyone knows that the Warriors team that won 73 games needed more spacing. :)

Who is saying I want LeBron handling the ball THAT much? His usage this season was 30%. Durant's last season in OKC was 30.6% and that's with LeBron being the primary ball handler in Cleveland and Durant sharing with Westbrook. You underestimate how much KD handles the ball and overestimate how much LeBron handles it. If LeBron had Curry/Klay/Draymond and could run in fastbreak all game long he would feast on easy baskets and set his teammates up an a Steve Nash/Magic Johnson level of success.

Kyrie didn't make his first all-nba team until LeBron came back to Cleveland and just had by far his best season as a pro this year. Completely disagree. LeBron is one of the most willing passing superstars of all-time. He's right up there with Bird and Magic.

1) LeBron isn't great at off-ball. KD is much better because he can shoot and spot-up. I never said Warriors needed more spacing but it doesn't hurt to have more in this generation.
2) Are you arguing in favor of KD or LeBron? Because I'm arguing that KD is a better fit. You're arguing that KD has better handles than I'm rating it? No, actually, I watched the guy for years. His handles are very good and would fit with the Warriors. LeBron's passing is great but Warriors don't need great passes to score.
3) KD can run the fastbreak too...

LeBron is better than Draymond at everything offensively. Passing, scoring, IQ, etc...

Draymond gets the nod defensively but I guarantee if LeBron didn't have to worry about carrying the offensive load people would see just how great of a defender he is, even at the age of 32. Give him the Dray role and his rebounds and defensive impact shoots up.

Substitute 'Bron for Dray and he'd put up 18/12/12 on better FG% and TS% easily IMO.

Is it just me or does every superstar who plays with LeBron get worse. I have yet to see a superstar play better with LeBron than with out. literally every star other than Kyrie is not considered a star once LeBron plays with them.

Its funny I keep hearing LeBron has a JV team. I'm sorry, Kyrie, Love, TT, Korver, Dwill, JR Smith is a good team, but all of sudden LeBron has no help again.

Dwade, Bosh, Kyrie, Korver, Love, DWill, Shaq, Ray Allen are all Marginal players with LeBron and all star or better without.

LeBron would not work on the warriors, he is ball dominate and needs the ball too much for it to work as good as it does with Durant.

Who cares KD went to a team that was developed internally and had enough money to sign him. The only reason GSW had enough money to sign Durant is Curry had glass ankles his first few years, that 44 million dollar contract allowed for this to happen.

And KD can thank LeBron for this championship, LeBron is the architect of going to the best possible team, the only mistake LeBron made is, he should have gone to San Antonio. KD followed LeBrons Lead.

Bull crap Love and Irving wernt stars, Love was a star enough to land 2 number 1 picks and more. And don't get me started Kyrie. Kyrie is and was a star with no talent around him, just like Love and just like Bosh. And I'm not discrediting LeBron his first 7 years and last year are most impressive to me. But if I hear ESPN say one more time he has a JV team, I'm done. I'm sick of it, he has plenty of talent, but he is going against a Juggernauat.

"stars" can be defined differently. Besides compile numbers, what did Love/Irving do prior to Cleveland? What exactly did Bosh do, prior to Miami? Toss up some nice numbers and get destroyed in round 1? Between Bosh, Irving, and Love, how many all NBA teams have they made?

LeBron hasn't had a JV team since 09-10', he has plenty of help. Unfortunately, he has now run into a team that can only be discussed as having 2-3 teams ever as a peer.

The 1st time LeBron was a FA and say a team built like the warriors, same young stars, coming off 2 finals and enough Money to sign him, he would have jumped at it. And probably would have never left because that kind of move would have had a team around him good for at least 6 to 8 years.

Where could have Bron went that had a window as wide as the Warriors? Bron could have went to great teams that only had a few years because of aging stars.

Key word possibly and even then it would still be more honorable considering the stage of his career, what he's leaving and who he's joining. Spurs could use the talent that's for sure. KD could've gone just about anywhere and she would be held in higher regard. He chose the best team.

Yes fans like me, i would love to meet a fan who knows the history of the sport as well as i do. Outside of a few on here none hold a candle.

Idc what you think most would do, none ever have and ive already seen stars stay away from easier paths for the sake of their integrity (whatever they covet). KD literally sacrificed zilch for BY FAR the easiest ring a star can ever win. Why would any intellectual respect that?

Yes fans like me, i would love to meet a fan who knows the history of the sport as well as i do. Outside of a few on here none hold a candle.

Idc what you think most would do, none ever have and ive already seen stars stay away from easier paths for the sake of their integrity (whatever they covet). KD literally sacrificed zilch for BY FAR the easiest ring a star can ever win. Why would any intellectual respect that? Casual fans with their simplistic takes and ignorance of history might agree with you

You have some kind of degree or special job that make your opinion hold any weight? Like does any NBA team employ you or do any players consult with you on how you might view them before they make a move?

I wonder what GS fans would say if James and GS found a way to add him as well.

They would probably say they are the favorites to win the title. Just like they have been saying this year.

You couldn't blame anyone tho. Imagine James costing the Warriors the win. First letting the game winner be hit on you right between the eyes. Then forgetting which lines is out of bounds.
