Turns out everyone was right about the Warriors. KD aquisition just guaranteed them 2 titles minimum

In 2 years only the Rockets gave them a run for their money. Reminiscent of the 2001-2002 Lakers. Only the Kings gave them a run

Both the Warriors and Lakers went 8-1 combined in back to back Finals victories



But now the real fun begins. First the draft and then free agency. I don't know about you guys, but I'm expecting a big off-season. Lots of teams need to shake it up

And of course, WHAT WILL LEBRON DO? We figure to find out in the next 30 days

Happy discussions

Any team that would give up value for Hassan?

Or would take him without asking for Josh or Bam

Steph will go down as a goat shooter tho so atleast hes got that going for him
and you best believe that if he gets 6 rings, especially if he can get 7, hes going down and the all time goat.

Youd get further with this troll attempt if you used KD instead

its not like im saying a role player is the goat. curry is a bona-fide star. changed the game. has the numbers to back it up, and could potentially have the same amount of rings. but nope. not possible for him to be in the discussion

Going to the team with the best record in the league that came one win away from a championship. Am I talking about Kevin Durant, or LeBron James?

LeBron LeBron LeBron
 
Cleveland: if he stays, then he doesnt care about championships and wants to be the hometown hero.
 
Philadelphia: If he wants to stay in the Eastern Conference, then this might be his best destination with all the talent they have. 
 
Miami: They have the coach LeBron likes and they have the role players, but he would be the only star they have unless they bring in someone else like PG13. I doubt that all happens, and there's too many what-ifs for this scenario to work. 
 
Lakers: People can dream and point to the upward trajectory of the franchise, but they have too many question marks. Plus, they play in the WC. If LeBron is going to take a chance on young, unproven talent then I think Philly is the better location because of the conference they play in.
 
Houston: This is the one destination that gives him the best shot at a title. Yes, I am biased but this team gave the KD Warriors the best run for their money. Add LBJ and the gap is closed. Yes, they would have to give up EG10, Ryno, and possibly Capela. But a team with Harden, CP#, and LeBron would be a beast to contend with. Yes, it's the WC but it is a team that is proven and ready to win a title. 
 
My order of guesses would be: 
 
1) Philly
2) Houston
3) Cleveland
4) Mystery Team (Bos, Mia, GSW)
 
 
All I care about is GSW losing. I'm gravely tired of hearing Green's BS.
