If everything goes according to plan, 2020-2021 season will be the year he hit the 30k, 10k, 10k milestone.
Thanks for all the great memories, LeBron! The show must go on! #Heatnation

I'm interesting to see how lebron's laker tenure and his perception progresses as compared to the last 3 years we've had of messi. Will he maintain best to nigh best in the world play? Will the definition of greatest change to fit the reaminder of lebron's career arc?

Is Danny Green the best shooter AD has played with?

Don’t think he is as good as Ryno. I mean maybe he is if you take his regular season percentage last year as Gospel but Green was atrocious shooting in the playoffs as he has been the last few years altogether. He really hasn’t been an elite shooter since 2015 really, in all but 1 regular season.

The move to switching defenses really neutered Ryno’s game but before that for several years he was one of the leagues premier offensive support players. He had way more range on his shot and more versatility as well with his pick and pop and even iso game.

Yeah, AD has played with shooters better than Green. Gordon/Morrow come to mind as well.

If the next two years he averages 75 games he needs to average 8.92 assists and 7.47 rebounds
It's do able especially for LeBron but 20-21 will be year 19 playing 75 games on averwge will be tough let alone keeping this production. If he does it will be truly extraordinary, I hope we can witness it

The one thing going for LeBron in terms of personal goals for longevity is he really does want to still be in the league when Bronny Jr. arrives. Which would be the 2023 season I believe?

Watched an interesting BBallBreakdown clip where he was assessing LeBron's best ever teammate. He ended saying that it was Chris Bosh and I tend to agree.

Seems obvious that AD will be the new best ever teammate.

LeBron led the league in paint scoring and was second in paint efficiency during the 2010s:

Pretty insane.

Don’t think Bosh was ever better than 11 Wade or even 12 before the injury. Bosh deserves praise for his consistency and accepting a role that was previously alien to him and his defense (especially in the 13 Finals) but Wade is the clear answer here until we see what AD is like. Nick likes to say things for shock value and this is one of those times.

Whoever made that graphic needs to be fired. I keep looking at MELO and thinking “why did they put a picture of Steph Curry?”

Eh, I think Bosh had the potential to be that, but was never utilized right.

90’s butts were a joke compared to today. One look at Kyle Lowry and I bet those fans would faint.

Spoiler:

MJ looked impressive next to noodle-leg Stockton, but I’d take all 4 of these guys over any 90s player:

1. Kyle Lowry
2. PJ Tucker
3. James Harden
4. LeBron James

Not even a debate.

How realistic would it be to expect Caruso starting or at least getting the majority of minutes at the 1/PG position, and actually contributing above league average, or is that just me thinking wishfully?

I can't stand Rondo and Cook is basically a 3pt shooter. Bradley has been used as a makeshift hamfisted PG in the past, but we all know he's going to get exposed there against serious teams. It basically has to be Caruso, some mid-season acquisition or bust at that spot.
