Thanks, appreciate the comment. As stated, being born and raised (as well as currently living) in NE Ohio, I eat, sleep, breathe Cavs, Indians and Browns (in that order). It saddens me a bit to think that others around the country think of us as jersey burning ingrates (fact: one guy burned an LBJ jersey at the behest of a camera guy that said it would make good TV), when really it's one of the best sports towns to live in across the country - passionate fans that will support mediocre teams as long as a (think EA) money grab isn't at play. Just watch how the Browns will be back to sellouts this season (even if they don't win a game AGAIN). The Tribe in the late '90's had 455 consecutive sellouts for BASEBALL. That spanned 6 different seasons and anyone not from here has no idea how cold it can be in early April!
And he supposedly wants to go to Lakers. PG13, Kawhi AND LBJ is intriguing. Lakers give up Ingram or Kuzma in that scenario. Only problem I see is Kawhi and PG play similar position. LBJ could play 1 or 4. I could see him forcing a Lonzo trade as well so as not to have to deal with Lavar. HahaI'm expecting him to stay too .. more bcz I dont c abt other destination that would put him over the warriors ( unless something like 2010 happens again.. 3 all stars in one place..)
But if he stays I wonder what he has planned. Another season of 82 games( I get why he did it but i dont think he needed to); 45+ minutes in the playoffs to get swept.. doesnt make sense.. I wish he would try a coach who would control him though..
Edit: kawhi asking for a trade [ .. spurs fan].. might change everything
Your posts and that article are a great read - thanks for your insights.Good article on this whole LA thing. Sounds great until you realize LA is left with a bunch of vet min contracts to fill out their roster.
I really don't think the 76rs need him, actually. Fultz got a triple double in the last game of the season... if he can shoot 3s again next year, they will have a TOP PG, Simmons can move to 3, you have Reddick and Saric... That's a pretty good starting five.
This is why Charles Barkley (and myself) don't think he will go to Philly. Too many ball dominant players...look what happened in OKC this year. That's also why a triumvirate of Kawhi, PG13 and LBJ isn't a great option for LA - not to mention they need to trade for one of those players which means giving up some good young talent. If I'm a Philly fan, I'm all in on trying to get PG13 or Kawhi vs. LBJ. Either of those guys is a much better fit with that team as constructed and they need to keep an eye on what's happening in Boston.If Lebron go to the 76ers it will be interesting to see the changes in Ben Simmons' play style.
Lebron has a tendency to turn players around him into spot up shooters(Not saying it's a bad thing) and obviously Ben Simmons can't do that.
