In his 16 season career LeBron has never attracted another star to go play with him. In his first stint with Cleveland, no one significant ever joined him other than a declining Shaq. He had to leave to Miami to finally get good teammates. Then came back to Cleveland when they finally had good players which they mostly had to draft. But no star has ever signed to LeBrons team as a free agent. At least Kobe had Pau Gasol and Steve Nash and Derick Fisher. Is it because of his ego?
Because nobody wants to live in Cleveland.
Because when the team wins "Its LeBron" and when the team loses, its the team.
Lebron : 28-0 Lakers : 0-28
No, when the team wins it’s “Don’t forget Kyrie contributed too” and when the team loses its LeBron. LeGM didn’t make the right trades. LeCoach didn’t call the right plays. LeHeadOfPlayerDevelopment didn’t develop the young guys proper
Its both sides. Lebron stans give him all the credit lebron haters cite all the things you just said
[This](https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/9eq97h/comment/e5qt9dh?st=JS0QQNXC&sh=2efc07d6) is probably my favourite comment on here dispelling a popular narrative for exactly that reason. “Oh, LeBron gets credit for wins but his teammates get blam
Youre taking memes way too seriously...the take of “Don’t forget Kyrie contributed too” is only there because so many people give Lebron the sole credit...so its only fair to throw Kyrie in there. Thats just logic.
The most desirable player on the market right now just asked to play with LeBron ...
AD isnt on the market?
He’s on the trade market.
Nash was not a superstar for the Lakers and Fisher was never a star...Pau was traded to the Lakers lol
Gasol was a free agent? And lol at Derek Fisher getting mentioned among those names.
I feel like you missed an important couple of years between his first stint in cleveland and when he left Miami
He seems to have attracted Anthony Davis
LeBron teams are toxic, and every star in the league knows this. Win and it’s because of LeGOAT, lose and it’s because LeGOAT had no halp
Love how people complain about LeBrons ego while praising guys like Kobe, Shaq, Jordan and their confidence/ego lmfao
Exactly. Kobe and Jordan are actual sociopaths. (Shaq is a nice person).
Those guys at least didn’t try to get their coaches fired over and over again.
Uhhh go read about Kobe and Phil in 04. Phil literally wrote a book shitting on Kobe
Jordan was notoriously bad as a teammate, however I think a lot of the Bulls recruiting issues were more the triangle than any player.
Pretty sure Pau did want to play with lebron in 14 but he told him he was leaving miami and he went to Chicago instead. Also come on wade love and bosh at least were attracted to lebron
im more interested why cant we attract any of buyouts, especially after Belinelli and Ilyasova earned themselves good contracts playing for us not even guys from Philly (Ellington and now seems like Markieff too) want to come
A top 10 arguably top 5 player in the league just made a whole big thing because he wanted to play with LeBron
kevin love kyrie irving dwyane wade chris bosh Anthony davis (though he didnt get a choice for this)
Was Kevin Love a star?
kevin love absolutely is a star, hes been in the ASG multiple times
Love was a trade orchestrated by LAGM . Irving and Wade were already the Stars that LABJ joins for his legacy. Bosh did join him in a sign and trade deal.
so those trades dont count? these players ask to be traded to these teams. it has to count.
Curry hasnt driven KD away and Curry likely is getting his 4th ring to Lebrons third this season. Have we given Curry the credit he is owed? He is one of the greats
Curry gets appropriate credit.
You may be in need of a little history refresher.. Lebrons first stint with Cleveland can be blamed on management not wanting to go into the luxury tax and not being aggressive in the trade market. They were content with what they had and only made small
