    How many players have gotten 3 different teams to the Finals, much less win 3 titles with 3 different teams?

    yah its interesting.

    I dont think its jealousy as much as just sticking up for your guy.

    objectively- people from all over the country pretty much implicitly (and explicitly) realize and accept that LeBron is better all time than Kobe- as much as that thing can even be "proved" or accepted in the first place.

    I dont blame lakers fans for wanting to stick up for their guy Kobe that was on 5 title teams- while LeBron is coming in at age 34 with practically no chance to win a title this year.

    what i think is interesting is that, for a lot of people according to the feedback this guy received, and the graffiti etc.- that many people somehow tie holding LeBron up as denigrating Kobe. I think Kobe is top 10 of all time and a great player and dont need to drag lebron down to make kobe look better. It seems a lot of people in LA have that mindset though.

    in order for the "LeBron Era" to be considered a success for you, what would have to happen the next 3 or so + years?

    I was told time and time again, over and over and over, that with LeBron it was nothing but "title or bust" that was successful.

    Wondering if people are going to try and walk that back now.

    Laker fans measure titles. And I tell you all there is a good chance he wins one there. IF Ingram rises this year they will be a team to contend with. Its going to be fun to watch them again. LBJ may be irritating but he balls as a top 5 all time.

    the artist putting on the mural "King of LA" - you had to expect to see some push back from that though right? Even I would say- LeBron comes here at age 34, without winning a title, Magic has what? 4 or 5 titles? Kobe has 5 titles? and you are calling LeBron "King of LA" sounds a bit premature.

    Having said that- after the last 5-6 years the Lakers have endured, I would think it would have been lessened the backlash.

    Next year is a building year.....clearly no title, but if they land another superstar next summer (in a far deeper FA class) they have a shot to win a title in the following 3 years, especially with GS having to make some serious decisions starting next summer and the following.

    So 4 years from now, what does a "successful" run look like?

    Like when LeBron came back- if you told me, 4 times to the Finals, and a title in the best come back in nba history, i would have said- cool deal.

    for that 4 year contract LeBron has in LA, at the end of 4 years, what would you be happy with and consider a success?

    He's already making us relevant again by most likely single handedly getting in the postseason next season but I think if he can bring a title that's just fine.

    Most people realize.....while he's playing great, he's not in his prime anymore. A player's prime is generally 24-25 to about 30-31. Once you hit 30 and when you have the miles on him he has.....anything after is gravy.

    But, I'm on record saying he has 2 years left at his current level of play and then 2 more where he's still a top 20 player.

    Not bad. Pretty busy with work and family. Our one month of unencumbered summer is about to start after Slink Jr plays his last baseball game on Saturday.

    How's 'bout you?

    Sure, I don't care. You might have to remind me, though.

    Every day I bet all I have on one game. Lost 15k on the Brewers on Monday.
