When you're right you're right. It is true that Bron can't do much that would elevate his legacy but a) winning (maybe not even a title) with the Knicks would be one thing and b) he actually could make them a good team at least in a few moves.
But we've seen no evidence that Bron likes a reclamation project, in a big city that he has no connection to.
for lebron to beat the warriors. he would have to join a team that's close to beating them. even if the knicks trade kp for kwahi, they're not, would that combo beat the warriors ? doesn't seem like it. i think houston is the only place he could go. maybe if the celts trade hayward to the cavs for bron, trade kyrie to the spurs for kwahi and with the rest of the pieces there he could challenge. but the knicks ? nah.
Well that's true yeah. It would be hard to come up with an imaginary fantasy team that would be much better than the Warriors, even spanning different eras. Stick Jordan and LeBron on there so they win by 40 instead of 25. Not losing tons with Klay and Durant lol. They need Draymond in there no matter what so Karl Malone would be a sub. They could use Olajuwon sure, and then win by 50.
But trade KP for Kawhi, trade the lottery pick and two more for Beal - resign Kyle O'Quinn for a small amount - is there max space left over? Could have to deal away Hardaway I guess and that would take some doing.
Then try to sign vets, you know the drill.
Beal - Hardaway
No guarantees with how good Boston looks and Sixers will take some steps, but you'd have some reasonable shot of making the Finals at least.
Also it takes a certain team to even be able to stay with the Warriors and I don't think that team has Harden as its main weapon. I think the Celtics are much better equipped to give the Warriors a run for their money because they can make things a little harder defensively.
