I think anyone with a half a brain would understand why I am posing this question. So lets check the sub .500 squads who missed the playoffs
This is no doubt a championship contender!!!!!!!!!
I'd say this team is about as good as Utah or Portland which a vast improvement for a team that went 25-57
L.A. Clippers (LA's redheaded step child)
The game is not played on paper, but this is a championship contender with for sure
From 17 and 65 to a 50-32 team, a very dangerous playoff opponent
NEW JERSEY Nets (New York's one eyed step child)
This is just the half, no less than the 4th pick, plus the ability to add yet another top tier FA means if LBJ joined them this is instantly the best team in the EAST for years to come!
Lebron can make any team into a contender, certainley could give 20 more wins per game to a roster
What also can be determined is that if Lebron leaves there are even better options than The Knicks
