    Stuff like this is why anyone ever thinks guys like Durant and Draymond have a point when they complain about the media.

    Nick Wright is so full of shit and has no sources. He's been doing this Ben Simmons for Kyrie shctick for months now. Thats not gonna happen in a million years dude. No matter how much you want it to to improve Lebrons chances.

    As much as I enjoy watching Lebron play NBA media will be much better off when he retires. The dozens of media members who built their career by love/hating him and turn every single nba disscusion and transaction into "How does this impact Lebron's legacy" will have to go find some other grift.

    oh there will be another, just matters who it is

    seamlessly went from Jordan to Kobe to Lebron media complexes

    Nah it was never to this extent with Kobe. And Jordan didn't have to deal with social medka. Maybe there will be someone else but a short reprieve would be nice.

    Would love for a tv show to hook reporters and subjects up to lie detectors and grill them in prime time.

    They’ll probably used the same routine they used when Jordan retired, they’ll bitch and moan about how the NBA sucks because Lebron is no longer playing.

    For years the media shoved the “Who’s the next Jordan” question down our throats. The “Next Lebron” narrative will be coming soon

    the league is set up better now than it was post Jordan. Playoffs were fun after the first round exit

    Whoever follows LeBron is more likely to be like Durant than LeBron in terms of media savvy and persona, which means it's going to be a very different (almost certainly less annoying) experience.

    I don’t think the Mavs acquiring Frankie Smokes is in any way comparable to the Hawks and their icon bringing in Delon Wright

    I’m a big fan of the hawks fan energy in this thread, but honestly Re-creating the 2020 Pistons bench might not have the desired impact on your title hopes

    Those things are said very often and I’m sure true to an extent. Haven’t heard as many people talk about the effort it takes to blow by fools on offense or generally dictate that side of the ball for those players who aren’t known as being more than avg on D.
