    There's no amount of money or draft picks that would make OKC trade Westbrook for Kevin Love and George Hill.

    Well that team gets swept in the WCF instead of the Finals so he should rethink that.

    Sam Presti is one of the best in the business and would not get hoodwinked into that poor of a deal. Another team or two would have to get involved. Even then, the chances are slim.

    I know we are going way hypothetical here, but Wade costs nothing. Melo is the X factor. He has a player option that overpays him to stay in OKC. He would probably lose $10MM or so hitting the open market. The other pieces in Houston are right up LeBron's alley (Capela will most likely be gone as he is due some money).

    Melo stinks at this point.

    Melo has to be the most over hyped over paid player in history right? All he does is shoot, doesn't even attempt to play D. He does nothing to help whatever team he is on and costs way to much. I can't believe anyone would give that guy anything other than league minimum

    Put me in the camp that GS wouldn't even take a meeting with Lebron. To much downside for GS. I think Durant leaves before anything. But if GS had everyone back they have more to lose by taking the meeting.

    I say this because I don't thin LeBron wants to play for GS and would only request a meeting to cause turmoil in that locker room.

    Unless Kevin Love goes to Miami with him. Miami roster is not better.

If he is good enough to bring Cleveland to the Finals then I canít help but think that in Miami with their role players he could truly have a good chance to win the series.
    I just don't think those players with Miami currently look as good with Lebron. Currently Miami doesn't have a star. So they have a lot of movement and ball movement and different players touching the ball and getting in a rhythm, which makes them perform better. Put LeBron on that team and it becomes James dominates the ball. Everyone clear the lane and stay still, and James will either score or will kick it out for an open shot. Which is great and all, but players don't get in a consistent rhythm in offenses like that. Hence the every year cry of James needs more help. The offense James prefers so he can do his dominant things, isn't the best for others. So how players may look now, it all changes when James joins that roster and usually makes those players look not as good. Which is why I think we would see the whole people saying again oh the roster sucks and it's all James even in Miami.

    Would Miami make the finals yes. Would people still cry the roster sucks around him and he needs more help. Yes.

    I don’t think even Kevin Love is enough to make the Cavs roster better. The Heat made the playoff this year. This Cavs team would not have without Lebron.

    Agree to disagree on that. They would have known they wouldn't have had James and would have had a system in place that fit those players better. Their roster was not as bad as some of you all try to make it out to be.

    No way his kid enrolled to a school before LeBron has visited his final 5 teams. Team LeBron isn’t stupid. They won’t give away any hints.
