Lebron has long bemoaned the lack of another playmaker, and cited the Warriors' collective intelligence as the biggest challenge.

And I doubt Lebron chooses Lonzo over CP.

I see them making moves together.


So we’re just going to remake an older, lesser version of those Heat teams that underachieved? At a time when we’re trying to knock off a historically dominant team, that didn’t exist when those Heat where underachieving?

I think last time I made this thread the lakers got mozgov and deng

I mean.. I can’t go worse


Difference is Mitch and Jim were in charge. I have more faith in Magic and Pelinka.

Sign Lebron and PG

Extend & waive Deng, somehow fit Randle under the cap, re-sign Brolo with MLE, and draft Aaron Holiday with the 25th pick & Mykhailiuk with the 47th pick. Fill the rest with ring chasers (ex: Frye, Brewer, etc)

Brolo/Zubac/Bryant
Lebron/Randle
Ingram/Kuzma/Mykhailiuk
PG/Hart
Ball/Holiday/Caruso

8-man core rotation with Brolo/Randle/Lebron/PG/Ball/Randle/Kuzma/Hart.

We're not giving them all that for a rental. Are you f'in nuts. Also who plays PG.


Lebron plays PG on offence, plus both PG and Kawhi are good ball handlers and can run the PnR. On defence both PG and Kawhi can guard point guards.

Imagine the trouble Steph will have when playing this no-PG lineup. He'll have to guard either PG or Kawhi, either of which can abuse him in the post.

Josh Hart would actually be a perfect “PG” in that lineup. Forgot who mentioned it, but he’d totally be a modern Derek Fisher.

Oh man!
This is killing me. I can’t wait until The draft and free agency.
I have a feeling we will be major players for LBJ, PG, and CP.

Let's see CP is still going to end up back in Houston. We'll be lucky to get one or two of those dudes

It still change the fact that we suck at drafting pgs, and Lavar will call us pussies till the end of time. So we'll never escape him.

Who's Lavar? I honestly think one of the ways to beat the Warriors is to play no point guard, just a bunch of 6'7"-6"10" guys that can switch on everything and never be in a mismatch (Boston is almost there). Of course you will still need an elite playmaker, e.g. Lebron.

Yeah, but quicker ones will run circles around us which has been a problem for the last 20 years, and when LeBron ages teams will run circles around him too. Also you know who I'm talking about LaVar Ball Lonzo's dad, and I'm going to side with him for once because our training staff sucks, and our fan base is a bunch of pussies we cry about every single thing that goes one here.

Lebron is only here for 1+1. Wins 2 championships and splits, either back to Cleveland or to an even more stacked team, lol. We get PG13 and Kawhi to sign long-term contracts. I'm ready to ride with a core of those 2.

And with a few holes to fill which we will have no money for. Also Spurs don't want need Ball because they a young guard, but they will take Ingram from us though. Also GS will make sure that we don't get out of the west alive especially when they have the four horsemen together.
