    He wants those rings to cement his place.
    Lebron will be in Philly for sure if they are planning on bringing in two stars. Kawaii and Lebron is all there is to think about. If itís possible, without giving Embiid/Simmons, you do it and you win for the next 10 years.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Lebron at 43.

    Putting someone like Lebron on this team takes away from what has gotten them this far and thats Simmons and Embiid. We saw what Lebron did to Kevin Love's career. He went from a 25 point and 10 rebound player in Minnesota to a 16 and 8 player in Cleveland. The Sixers can't afford to have less production out of their two main players along with Covington. If anything, they need more and the only way thats going to happen is for them to continue to be on the floor together to build that chemistry.

    So many people focus so much on stock piling talent that they overlook chemistry. The Warriors are a great example of that. Is Draymond Green or Klay Thompson a top 10 player in the league? I don't think so. Are they a top 20? Its cutting it close. Some would say I'm crazy for not putting them in the top 20 but its debatable. But, they have a championship, even without Durant.

    People have to remember about the Warriors... the won 73 games BEFORE signing Durant.

    The Sixers have a long ways to go to catch up to that level even with Lebron. And then you have to talk about the fit. Could Lebron and Simmons maximize each other the way the Warriors players do. Probably not because the Warriors are a team of unselfish players who can all shoot lights out and play defense.

    Your right Kevin went from never making the playoffs to becoming a champion. Stop!

    we saw how it turned out for the Spurs 'riding' it out this year

    Spurs will probably move him and wont get nothing more than that outside of Irving straight up, that Philly deal will look more lovely by the day unless they hose a Phoenix for Booker type and really stick it to Leonard, unless he has a no trade clause I am not hip to they will be happy to get a PG13 type bring back, I would trade Saric / Fultz for him and call it a day, I would just look at I got Leonard / MVP caliber for a player who will be good but I don't think quite mvp candidate but that's not taking nothing away from Fultz, just levels to this and Leonard is clearly on that level

    The Spurs lost a lot of leverage once these Leonard leaks started coming out about wanting out, just how it goes, and the Spurs aren't any diff., they may be more patient about it but the more they wait the more leverage they lose, I would already have a deal in place if I were Spurs and announce it once the Finals close out

    I would trade Simmons for Klay if Bron / Leonard signed with Sixers, and there is no way Embiid could endure 10yrs of winning deep playoff runs with his brittle body and Bron on back end of apex, as I said 4-5 yrs for sure of Finals in a row in a 10yr span is pretty much all you can ask for

    If Bron was to play to 43, he would own almost every single NBA player record

    Lebron's 2018 playoff Dominance

    PER
    1. Bron 35.4
    2. Harden 27.3
    3. Capela 26.8
    4. Giannis 26.5
    5. AD 25.7


    At age 33 its unbelievable how much better he is than everyone, but at the same time not really. Ive always thought the gap between him and the rest of the league was something like this.

    Harden's is just as good when you consider competition. I mean had to deal with Jimmy Butler in round 1 (Jimmy has held Lebron in series to 40% FG and 44% FG) and then had to deal with an elite big in Rudy Gobert in the paint in the next series. This isn't to say Harden would have had the same numbers if playing Indy or Toronto, just saying there is a big difference thus far in who they played and the defensive guys that Harden has had to deal with.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    When have you seen a gap like this in the playoffs. If you can't, then stop hating, its 100% worthy. Easy on the jealousy of an NBA player.

    When you factor in all the help Harden has Cappella is number #3 in PER and remember how bad Cleveland help has playing, it all evens out and Lebron is actually this much better.
