    Gary Payton has reported he has.

    If LeBron called Golden State and said I am dead serious about coming to Golden State they would not only take the phone call but they would run through every plausible scenario to get him at Golden State. They’d dump Klay and Draymond so fast......

    Yes. And everyone has refuted it. Including the school. I’d love to know the reasoning behind Team LeBron enrolling their oldest son into a school 3 weeks before he can officially speak to teams on record about him playing there. That makes zero sense. This reminds of when Rex Chapman said Calipari was leaving to coach the Lakers right before the Final Four started.

    But why it makes no basketball sense. What combination could Lebron join that GS should fear. Also from a money standpoint GS is printing money, even more so with new arena.

    I get Lebron is the best player for now but GS has younger players and no reason to hedge.

    Klay and Draymond are both free agents by 2020 if I am not mistaken. Their run won’t last forever. Dumping Klay and Draymond right now makes more sense than ever. Steph, KD and LeBron? Who is beating that?

    Now, I don’t expect this scenario to happen because I feel like LeBron stays in the East and doesn’t entertain going to the West unless he goes to San Antonio. My main point is that it is naive to believe that Golden State wouldn’t entertain bringing in LeBron if LeBron made it clear that he wants to play there.

    That would surprise the hell out of me. He said he is in championship mode so the only team in the West that fit that mold are Golden State, San Antonio and Houston. No one else qualifies if he is in championship mode.

    I agree with your general assessment except for two teams Boston and GS. Everyone else should and would take his call. Philly needs Lebron to catch Boston , Boston doesn't need anything to be favorites to win the east next year.

    On Klay and Draymond , unless I'm missing something all reports I read has Klay signing an extension and Draymond whispers already started. I also stand by Houston making no sense. Chris Paul heading to LA makes more sense than LBJ to Houston if he wants to win a title.

    My Golden State scenario only works if LeBron calls them. I don’t expect him to call them at all. He wants to beat them not join them.

    I’m pretty sure those kids live in LA anyway so I’m not sure it really matters.

    So if he's in "championship mode" I look forward to him getting the same backlash KD has been getting for going to Golden State. Can't wait!

    He’s been in championship mode the last 8 seasons.

    Only because he's had a cake walk to the Finals. He doesn't have that anymore.

    We both know he is going to put himself in a cake walk situation to keep going to the Finals.

    Of course he is. That's why he's not going West.
