    How quick we forget. I dont remember the Lebron lovers complaining when James started the trend of stars joining other stars in free agency. That one guy as you said felt he needed to join other all stars so he could win a championship. So the whole a team needing all this to beat one guy is funny. Especially when James made his all star squad he lost 2 out of 4 finals. To two teams who didn't have the stars he did. I also dont remember James fans complaining when an all star and future hall of Famer joined the big 3 in Ray Allen.

    The whole Lebron dynamic is interesting with both sides. James fans use the Warriors thing to show how great James must be. But yet completely ignore what James did and the trend he started so he could win his first championship.

    Lets not lie James was trying to do what the Warriors currently are doing. He was trying to put an all star team together to be what the Warriors are and win not 4, not 5, not 6 etc that he talked about. The only difference is his team of all stars didn't know how to play as well together as the Warriors.

    Lebron is the reason for the Wariors. But it's not because of just trying to beat him. Its cause he opened the door that we really didn't see before in stars joining other stars in free agency. If he never did that, I very much doubt Durant ever joins the Warriors. However he saw how it worked for James to get his championship. James decision basically led to this current Warriors monster.

    What exactly did the Warriors have to be scared about in Lebron being a Laker even before they got Cousins. You act like the Lakers are putting a team around Lebron worth being scared of. When in reality it's most likely going to be you calling these players around him scrubs and needing more help after the Warriors would have beaten him again with or without Cousins.

    The funniest part for Lebron lovers is when you all say they added Durant cause they couldn't beat Lebron. They beat him once in the finals. Then lost once to him in a game 7 that took Kyrie not James hitting an unbelieveable clutch 3 to win the game. That seems to me it was two evenly matched teams that could have went either way. Not a see the Warriors couldn't beat Lebron. Especially when all things considered that Warriors team wins that series in 5 if Green wasnt baited by James stepping over him and getting himself suspended.

    Honestly just like the main reason so many people hate UK is because of UK fans. I think the reason why Lebron also has so many haters is cause of these crazy things Lebron Lovers say.

    1.) I’m a Kobe guy. Always have been, always will be. Kobe is better than LeBron. Hell, I like D’Angelo Russell, Russ Westbrook and Cousins more than LeBron. If not hating on LeBron makes me a LeBron Lover then so be it.

    2.) You’re really just going to ignore the documented fact that after the Cavs beat the record setting 73 win Warriors that Draymond Green called KD FROM THE PARKING LOT and began begging him to join the Warriors and say that LeBron had zero to do with that?

    3.) LeBron Haters are worse than LeBron Lovers IMO because they refuse to give him zero credit at all. At least I can say that when I hated on MJ I gave him credit for being the GOAT. LeBron Haters are a strange breed.

    4.) If Golden State was unbothered by the Lakers then they would have told Cousins they are good but no thank you. You can rationalize it anyway you want but there’s no way in hell they took on Cousins for the hell of it. They want to make sure they maintain their dominance next season and I don’t blame them one bit. Acting like a LeBron in LA doesn’t have anything to do with it is denial. It made too much sense when Cousins called. At the very least they have stolen all the thunder from LA and even that has something to do with LeBron. Y’all gotta let this hate go. It’ll give you high blood pressure.

    2. It's not ignoring that Green called right after. As I stated it was pretty much evenly matched teams. Both teams had 3 stars and the 1st go around the Warriors won when the Cavs other stars were out. The next season the Cavs won in game 7 on an unbelievable shot by Kyrie. Even though the series is probably over in 5 with Green. So yes the Warriors realized they weren't a sure thing to keep winning cause that Cavs trio was good. However you all like to say they realized they couldn't beat Lebron. That's the kind of stuff that gets reactions from Lebron haters. You all act like one he won it by himself, and two act like they won it easy over the Warriors. When reality is very easily could have went the other way. So they didn't need Durant to beat one guy as you all like to say. However Green knew they had the space to make it happen, so why not ask? The trend of stars joining other stars in free agency had already started because of Lebrons decision to join the Heat.

    3. Lebron haters do give him credit. I know I am a hater but completely acknowledge he is the best in the world and it's not close. I just question the system he likes to play in is cause for the always ever cry for help since it's not a good system for players around him to perform to their best. Haters most of the time have to respond to ridiculous comments like oh a team needed to have 5 all stars to beat one guy. So yes to respond to that, its going to be negative. I just find it funny cause Lebron started the whole join other stars thing, and while with other stars he lost 2 out of 4 finals. Yet people say teams need 5 all stars to beat him. James has been with two other all stars for basically 7 out of the last 8 years. With first Wade, Bosh and then even Allen. Then Love and Irving. Yet somehow the narrative is James does it on his own lol.

    4. No I dont think it has anything to do with James going to the Lakers. Has to do with Houston. They seem Houston possibly beats them if not for Paul's injury. They seem how physical Houston made the games. They seen how they didn't have an answer for the Rockets big guy. So they went out and got probably the best and most physical center in basketball if he is healthy. Their response was to Houston not the Lakers. You thinking otherwise is the type of responses that make Lebron Haters respond because of crazy statements like that.

    Honestly the Lebron debate is becoming very much like the rest of the climate in 2018. This whole idea is forcing people to choose sides with really no middle ground. You either love Lebron or you hate Lebron. The Lebron lovers (myself included) think he’s the greatest basketball player in the history of the world. The Lebron haters think he’s relatively overrated. They’re either reminiscing on the glory days of MJ or they think if he’s as good as everyone says he is then he should have won more than he has. The lovers point out the fact that Lebron simply hasn’t ever had enough help and the haters say, “well what about Miami?” We can argue about this all day long but the more we talk about it the more firm our opinions become. God bless PP92 because he’s been the only rational person in this thread.

    Yeah, Kyrie Irving had nothing to do with Cleveland beating Golden State that year...

    The front office at Golden State is responsible for building the best team that they can. I don’t think you can say in a vacuum that this is a reactionary move and the Warriors don’t make this same move if LeBron stays in Cleveland. A top (albeit hobbled) player is out there and willing to sign on the cheap. This is professional sports, you sign the best players you can to assemble the best team you can and win at any cost.

    I personally love it. I’m not a Warriors fan, but if guys are willing to sign for cheap and they’re getting it done within the rules, go for it.

    How devalued is Cousins? Per his camp, he reached out to the Warriors, no teams reached out to him. Not much market for a 280 lb volatile big man that history shows a 50-50 shot or remotely returning to form. I am still reluctant to say this move means much of anything, next season at least.

    Kyrie had a lot to do with it but lets not act like Kyrie has carried teams to the Finals without having LeBron on his team. Hell, Boston made the ECFs without Kyrie this season. Who was Finals MVP that year?

    Why wouldn’t they make the same move if LeBron stays in Cleveland? They’d still have to face LeBron at some point. If we all know LeBron is working to get a better team in the Finals shouldn’t Golden State be making moves to maintain their dominance?

    Boogie wanted to go to Los Angeles for the same price and they weren't interested. Let's see how that works out for them.

    I just don’t buy the notion that every move made in the league is about LeBron. The 76ers and Celtics were the future of the east, regardless of what LeBron did.
