    He also ran Kyrie out of town. Kyrie made a monster shot the year that they won. LeBron has no excuses since he has been practically the GM of the team.

    Celtics win a game Cleveland usually wins.

    After a loss, lebron 40 point triple double, Love with 20 and 15, and korver shooting well.

    It would be a circus for sure, sell a lot of tickets and create buzz, but at the end of the day Knicks wouldn't win anything because they have no team behind him

    Exactly...... but at least it would give me a reason to be excited again.... unless Santa Claus makes Dolan sell the team before he jumps into Kiluea

    Little known fact but Dolan doesn't actually own the team. His family sold almost all the stock in Optimum and MSG a lot time ago. He is chairman and controls MSG by virtue of the fact that all the shares he sold come with no voting rights, He retains about 20% of supervoting shares and has complete control.

    Bet on this happening months and months ago. It has to be the Rockets. What other place makes sense for him? If he joins the Lakers, the Lakers will only be able to sign 1 other max player with him. So say the Lakers sign LeBron and Paul George. That's good enough for what? A #3 in the West? He now has to beat the Rockets and Warriors with no home court. Say he stays in Cleveland. He has to beat the Celtics(with a healthy Irving) and then either the Rockets/Warriors in the Finals. Again with no home court. Not a better situation.

    If he wants to win 2-3 more Finals before retiring and go down as the 2nd best player of all time he has to join the Rockets. If he wants to go down as the best or 2nd best NBA Finals loser of all time then he picks the Cavs. The Lakers offer very little I have no idea why they are even in the conversation.

    Here are the latest odds:

    Code:
    [LIST]
    [*]Cleveland Cavaliers +125
    [*]Houston Rockets +375
    [*]Los Angeles Lakers +375
    [*]Philadelphia 76ers +375
    [*]Golden State Warriors +1000
    [*]Los Angeles Clippers +1200
    [*]Miami Heat +1600
    [/LIST]
    
    Bet the Rockets big, imo, bet them!


    PS. Also if LeBron joins the Warriors with Durant and Curry on the team it will be the biggest beta bitch move of all time trumping "The Decision" and Durant to GSW by like a billion times. I seriously will not watch a single NBA game if that happens. Far worse than joining the Rockets who have not won shit and have Dan "Handicap" Tony as the coach.

    Looks like Mike "No D" Antoni is going to escape with a 1-1 tie. Can I call him Anne Tony? It's true but it's a dig on my alter-ego, eek.

    Houston makes the most sense, I really think he should consider the Pelicans ... especially if Cousins comes back. Winning with the Pelicans would do more for his legacy, but Lebron wants to have his Banana Boat team with CP3 and Lebron.

    76ers, Lakers are awful fits, I absolutely agree. I should drop a little bit of change on the Rockets. How can the Warriors actually afford Lebron? That's straight up insane!

    Truth be told, he would be a truly awesome fit with the Warriors lol.. with his ability to drive and kick and those shooters, wow

    its a long shot but as a casual NBA fan now (thanks Knicks) I kinda hope he does somehow sign with the Warriors just to hear all the bitching

    Wow, for a team with so many great offensive players, Golden State had some of the worst offensive sequences I've ever seen in the last few minutes of that game. Sometimes it seems like these players are so talented that they think they don't need to run any plays, since the most ridiculous crap they throw up is going to go in anyway.

    I couldn't believe they didn't call timeout at the end there

    Lue fucked up last night. Why would you keep Korver on the bench for so long when nobody else can hit a shot on that Cleveland team

    JR Smith is so bad, he hasn't hit a 3 pointer this entire series.

    He is an extremely inefficient player. Not a good defender. Inconsistent shooter. He'll go 5 straight games without hitting a damn shot. Then have 1 game where he can't miss boosting his "average". The analytics guys have been rooting guys like him out of the game. Cleveland is playing old school, obsolete basketball
