LeBron isn't innocent either. This is embarrassing.

We all saw how well the Clippers turned out without the reps together


The clippers were flawed to begin with though. No playmakers and all their players were massively overrated.

The nets look like team USA. Kyrie Harris Harden KD DJ is an excellent lineup. Harden is finally going to get single coverage too.

That said, I think the bucks, Sixers, Lakers and Mavs generally match up "well" with them.

If only titles mattered with 0 context. You’re only mad because you care what talking heads and casual fans think about your favorite player or GOAT. You need to divorce yourself from that.

I get legitimately upset when people act like they're complimenting LeBron by calling him the second greatest ever

That is at best a backhanded compliment but really any true LeBron fan knows it is an INSULT

OP, man the fck up. This post makes you sound like the whiniest MOFO ever.

You aren't mad that KD can't prove himself with less help, you're mad because now he arguably has a better supporting cast than your idol. You didn't want to see KD and Lebron go head to head in an attempt to see a fun duel, you wanted to see Lebron crush KD with his own version of the super team clearly superior to Durants.

Lebron wanted to play with Kd and also the Lakers would still do the Ad trade so you'd have Lebron/KD/AD. Also he want to do a big 3 with Kawhi as well so lets not act like Lebron didn't want to completely stack the deck in his favor.

Normally I would have been upset at the creation of this super team but since the Spurs are no longer contenders it doesn't bother me. I'm enjoying the outrage from Lebron fans and Laker fans about this trade.

I mean, Nets went from one of the deepest rosters, to pretty thin bench. Dinwiddie is also injured.
And you never know what will happen in Kyrie's head. So I would not put them at top just yet.

Wow dudes are going crazy over what probably is one of the worst defensive playoff teams ever. Not to mention completely dysfunctional.

No its a good compliment now what is insulting is Lebron fans think that he is better then Jordan, Kaj, Russell or Wilt.

He has lost more finals then he has won while playing on a stacked roster. Has 2-3 of the worst beatings in the finals ever.

GOATs cant have a losing record vs their contemporaries.

Lol OP panic stations lit. This team is garbage. On paper it looks nice, however with three volatile snowflakes, hell 4 if you include DeAndre, nah, this team will implode before it wins a championship. Harden and Kyrie will end up both in the strip club and back home sad respectively before any championship is won. Three of the softest players from a mentality stand point this game will ever see.

I don't like this, but LeBron started it, it's a super team culture now.

Noone wants Kyrie really because oyu cant game plan around him.


What lol, are you talking about his brother Mark, the 46 year old barely walking out there? Yea I’d say prime Kyrie Irving might be just a tad better :lol:

I’m guessing that was sarcasm though :wink:

We are comparing todays' rosters, and its about impact. If you call this version of Kyrie "prime", then you must just have started to watch basketball. When everything is said and done for this season you'll agree with me that Marc - yeah didnt mean Pau - will have done a lot more for the lakers than Kyrie will do for Brooklyn. I'm not even sure he's coming back at all.
