How does each year's outcome differ?

They are a perpetual WCF team and win a couple titles imo.

LeBron and Iverson? I think Melo fit better on that Denver roster.

I would've paid serious money to see the 09 LAL vs DEN series with LeBron instead of Melo, though.

Edit: Which version of LeBron? Current?

Same results

Probably an early exit in the WC. Maybe semifinals at best.

Even if LeBron forced AI to be glued to the bench they'd still be a better combo than Melo & AI.

Something along these lines.

No way they win it all probably fewer first round exits
Probably a better overall team on the offensive end but not close to what the Cavs were defensively but now in a way better conference
Those Nuggets in the East with Lebron would dominant lol but no not in the West
Every season they weren't the 2nd best team some years a major jump would be needed

2009 team: Nene, Chauncey, JR Smith, Kleiza (when he was actually good), KMart, with Lebron. Are you kidding me? That team beats the Lakers IMO. They almost beat them with Melo, if it wasn't for some hilariously stupid turnovers at the end of the games.

No way are any of those teams are 1st round exits. Also, you have to take in account that they would have better seeding.

That 2009 team would have been in the finals for sure. That 2010 team maybe in the WCF.
