Adding Lebron to your team is a no brainer for almost all 30 teams except a few but like Zach Lowe mentioned there real cons to adding lebron to your team. How much would lebron have to drop off before you felt he was not worth the turmoil and drama that seems to follow him?
He would have to drop off Luke Walton at an incinerator.
Youd be surprised at the amount of Laker fans that would love him more after that
When hes no longer the focal point of every defense, which might take a while. I think his passing skills will always make him a valuable offensive player. His scoring will slow down eventually, but he will still be impactful for a while
Purely because of his BBIQ and playmaking ability I think even when he goes down to even 10-15ppg teams would still focus him on defense lol
I think LeBron is such a smart player, hell be able to keep his production high until hes 38. We can already see how he adapts his game given that hes nowhere near the athletic superbeast he was 10 years ago. Hes still stronger than most other forwards bu
But is such a player worth $40-$45 million a year? LOL
As long as he is still bringing in 40-45 million+ to the team in revenue then yeah probably.
Lebron will never take less, nor should he. Hes earned every penny
From a fan perspective: it depends what the other option is. If I were able to get a drama free player on the level of KD or Giannis, I might take them already, and if not now, after a little bit more of a drop off from LeBron. (The drama isnt necessarily
Lakers would trade lebron for curry without a second thought. Curry has been selling out arenas more consistently then lebron has the last 4 years.
LeBron has been selling out arenas since Curry was still a teenager. What the hell are you talking about?
Curry and his band of unbeatable all stars...
So you know my man Anthony Bennett...
From a business side, probably never. I think hes most likely to decline like Kareem in which even when hes past his prime he will still be somewhat effective. Even when LeBron has clearly lost a step he will still be the biggest draw, tickets wise.
When not not an All NBA player anymore
If he had choosen the Sixers the last straw would be trading T.J.
When he’s no longer top 10.
He’d have to drop off about 70 pounds. Yeah that should do it.
In theory, the drama drops once the player drops. People will put up with a lot of shit from the greatest player in the game that they wont take from much else.
LeBron himself brings little drama. Point me to a single thing he has done that is dramatic? What brings drama is the fans and media pretending he is the coach, GM, president of basketball operations, head of player development etc.
So you’re saying Lebron brings drama.
Im saying the "drama" is contrived.
Mysterious tweets when things are going wrong, calling out teammates on twitter ("stop trying to fit-out"), taking a mid-season vacation to Miami when things werent going well in Cleveland, Im sure I could come up with a lot more if I spent any time on it
Kyrie left for similar reasons and currently, Kyrie is doing a marvelous job in following LeBron’s steps. It may not be right, and possibly not the best way to get your team mates in sync, but it works for LeBron.
Mysterious tweets? Really? He was injured when he went to Miami, Windhorst literally wrote a story about how bad his back injury was.
When he blocked Rozier in the ECF and did a full court staredown while the Cavs ran an offensive play (not disagreeing with you btw)
Singing rewind to Kyrie on Instagram, asking "where woj at?" On twitter while his whole team is on the trade block for AD, sitting miles away from his team on the bench during a 40 point loss. And thats just recently
If he doesnt make the playoffs this season, then, hes already there.
Wrong reply :/
