    Rocked?

    They went 1-1 vs GSW in the finals when Lebron actually had Kyrie and Love playing in the finals

    Lebron isn't trying to win anymore...

    So far many players are turning their back on playing with lebron

    Honestly, I was good either way. I was enjoying watching the kids grow and develop. However, I also obviously want to see my team contending for titles.

    What I like about what I've seen so far is that they have managed to add Lebron and may well be able to add another star without giving up much, if any, more of the young core.

    Lebron apparently feels like he does because he signed for 4 years and from what I've read and heard, the moves that the Laers are making are the ones he and Magic discussed when Magic met with him when FA opened.

    Heck, after 8 straight finals appearances, Lebron may want a season where he can actually rest a little bit. lol

    Possibly. Between Kawhi, Lebron, Ingram (assuming he keeps developing) and Ball (assuming he's still on the team), the Lakers would be able to defend the Warriors as well as anyone they've faced. They could switch everything and defend from the 3 point line to the rim.

    You also have to keep in mind that by the 2019-20 season, the Warriors may not look the same as they do now. They are going to have some pretty tough financial decisions to make beginning next off-season.

    He's in the bargaining stage right now.

    Next will be depression....then acceptance.

    They played 1 series with Durant there and it was a competitive series.

    If not for the Cleveland choke in game 3, it would have been a best of 3 heading into game 5.

    But it wasn't. I don't consider losing in 5 competitive and the following getting swept competitive

    Report: Kyrie Irving 'never really wanted LeBron to come back' to Cavs from Heat in 2014


    Not sure if there's any truth to this article. Ran across it on yahoo. Funny stuff though.

    A 5 game series can be competitive.

    I don't care about what happened this season. That team was a train wreck and had no business making the finals. The fact that LBJ carried a bunch of bums to the finals was amazing

    No way they walk away from trying to win 4 in a row imo

    Plus you still have hou, philly and bos...how long before they become the next upcoming teams?

    I don't really think any cavs fans are bitter. Lebron staying would have been worse for them. Sometimes it's fun to watch young upcoming teams built through the draft. It doesn't always work out tho...

    It feels true (most of it)...But i think at first Kyrie was happy, but later regretted playing with lebron

    What you smokin' to be so high? It's never a good thing for a team when they not only lose their best player, but the best all around player in the game. Keep up the craziness.

    Sometimes it is. When Kobe signed that huge long term contract, they would have been better off parting ways.

    I want Kyrie outta Boston ASAP. Not a fan of his. He can't stay healthy + his flat Earth nonsense is bizarre. And he can go fuck himself for saying he wants to play for the Brickabockers.
