    Default Do you Think Inserting Lebron to any core would make that team a contender?

    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

    N.O.




    Chris Paul
    Peja
    LEBRON JAMES
    David West
    Emaka Okafor

    This is no doubt a championship contender!!!!!!!!!


    Sac-Town



    Beno Udich
    Tyreke Evans
    LEBRON JAMES
    Carl Landry
    Jason Thompson

    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)


    Baron Davis
    Eric Gordan
    LEBRON JAMES
    Blake Griffen
    Kaman

    The game is not played on paper, but this is a championship contender with for sure


    Minny


    Flynn
    Corey Brewer
    LEBRON JAMES
    Kevin Love
    Al Jefferson

    From 17 and 65 to a 50-32 team, a very dangerous playoff opponent

    NEW JERSEY Nets (New York's one eyed step child)





    Harris
    Lee
    LEBRON JAMES
    Yi
    Brook Lopez

    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!



    Synopsis:

    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

    Agreed. I think and pray we make a serious play for Chris Paul. And I actually would like to have this team battle & destroy Lebron:

    Curry + Chandler + Serg + 2011 1st + 2012 1st FOR Paul + Okefur

    pg CP3
    sg Morrows (MLE signing)
    sf Gallo
    pf Bosh (Lee?)
    c Okefor
    6th Douglas

    I *love* that lineup so hard. Imagine how beautifully those pieces would work together....

    So young, too.

    Imagine the NYfckingNets:

    pg Harris-JohnWall
    sg JoeJohnson
    sf Lebron
    pf Yi
    c Lopez

    Wall either becomes a king unto himself and totally replaces Harris who becomes more asset-bait in a trade....and in the meantime you get a borderline-AllStar talent&player in Harris to man PG.

    Even if Yi doesn't become much more than he is he is an asset on that team, and it's truly a worldbeater.

    Greatest of alltime on paper?

    Better teams in order to win. That's a good/obvious point. But it's not THE point.

    The only reason NY is considered his #2 option is because of the market. On ESPN, columnists have each put down their thoughts on Lebron's possible destinations if he were to leave the Cavs and each have NY as the most likely.

    If Lebron joined the Knicks, we'd make the playoffs. That's a given. The wins will come. Obviously the first season is the main detractor. He'd have to take a step back in the win column and have a tougher 1st round opponent as a lower seed. Magic, Hawks, Boston. Sign Bosh as well..... Different story. The cap is there to build a better team in the coming years. We won't have a center, but neither will Cleveland. Maybe.

    It's well known that he'd only leave for a big market city. Pointless to say he'd even consider N.O, Minny and Sacramento. Why would he even want to join a West squad?

    It's only ever been about cash and fame VS home town and mutiny. He'll stay because he couldn't handle the label of "greedy fame grabber" or something along those lines, from his hometown AND current team mates.

    And people that say he'll leave if the Cavs take the trophy this year are ridiculous. That would guarantee him staying. All he needs to do is single handedly beat the Celtics and Magic.

    Good thread...


    There's no question that most of those teams would improve drastically. Still, I don't see a team like minnesota or sacramento making the play-offs their first year with lebron..

    Which means Lebron doesn't have as many options that are better than the N.Y. Knicks.

    I like how you took random teams and made them look good

    Even if you have the Minnesota Timberwolves

    Flynn
    Lebron
    Brewer
    Love
    Jefferson

    Easy playoff run right there with a bad team

    Even but Lebron on the Nets and you do damage

    Harris
    Williams
    Lebron
    Top Draft pick(Derrick Favors, PF)
    Lopez

    PLAYOFFS

    Every team with Lebron can easily go to the playoffs but its all about defense and having that 2nd go to guy.

    put lebron on the nets and thats a finals team hands down, he'll have that 2nd option and dominate force down-low in Lopez( whos become an allstar ). NJ will in my opinion pose as our biggest threat in the future
