    Then he left Cleveland to go to the Lakers(a bad team)... a team that wasn't on the radar as far as contending goes.



    He attracts stars to play aside him, unfortunately 11 of his seasons were stationed in Cleveland lmao


    Not Chicago, LA, NY, etc. I really wish he wasn't drafted by the Cavs.

    Like who? Drummond might be the biggest name that has gone to play aside him.

    It's done more so over trades rather than FA now. So Love, Bosh/Wade wanted to play with him, old Ray allen; bad Shaq, AD

    If he did start somewhere besides Cleveland we probably see a far different career trajectory


    I don't count Drummond lol. He's awful

    I agree with the "if LBJ began his career with a different team his career trajectory would be different" notion. I'm the one that 1st said it lol....

    But the notion that stars "went to go play" with LBJ is a big misconception. Allen (37), Shaq (37) & Wade (36) weren't stars anymore. Love and AD were traded for. Wade was already in Miami when LBJ went there. Irving was already in Cleveland when LBJ went there.

    As for Bosh, it was reported that LBJ stayed recruiting him to go join him in Cleveland all the way till the day before The Decision. Bosh had already committed to joining Wade in Miami with or without LBJ. LBJ joined them.

    I'm not saying that LBJ wasn't the best player on all his teams, nor that guys didn't want to play with him. Sure guys wanted to play with him. But how many (free agent) stars actually did go play with LBJ? IMO AD2 is the best of the bunch, and you just said he's awful.

    Imo That's what happens when you're in Cleveland unfortunately. Kinda like Utah, etc no one wants to go there.

    He is good, but two players? He is a dog! Could be.
    Soon to be seen together!

    What a groundbreaking strategy.. I wonder if Pelinka thought of this as he was making the trade?

    He was probably thinking that his is a Super star that could turn into a huge addition and get the team better or another chip to trade if things do not work?

    Who’s going to want RWB? I mean, I guess some team might trade for him but you’re not going to get anything good in return..

    Wow, we're already talking about trading LBJ and AD...a whopping two games into the season lol. Guys, there is absolutely no reason to be concerned...I repeat THERE IS NO REASON TO BE CONCERNED.

    We don't take the preseason very seriously. LBJ, AD, and Westbrook didnt play very many minutes or games, plus there's a lot of new players. It will be a little bit before we really get going.

    This team has a lot of holes.. I can’t see this team as currently constructed winning a championship unless Westbrook can develop and consistently make an outside jumper..
