LBJ and Wade are really good friends and lebron got wade shipped off to Miami early in the season. Staying with the Cavs and bringing Carmelo would be an unmitigated disaster.

Not entirely sold on Paul George either. I don’t think you can with him as your number one. If I were the lakers I only sign George if they can land lebron or someone better than George

If LBJ wants to win...he will go to Philly, Spurs, or NO.  Boston and Warriors of course but I doubt either are viable.

i like NO.  bron + AD would be a dangerous combo and eat the warriors alive in the paint

I bet he stays in CLE. Always easier to stay then to leave. Plus there’s more money.

Buttttt that finals probably pissed him off.  So who knows. I’m already getting Lebron fatigue. Hopefully we don’t get THE decision 2.0.

Money is better if he stays in CLE but that's a small part compared to if he goes to LA and does off-the-court stuff.  Question is whether he wants to "win" or set himself up for the future

Not sure if he can win another ring in Cleveland, he can probably get to the Finals again, but needs more than just KLo and ex-Lakers. I think even if he still had Kyrie, the Warriors with KD is just unfair to everyone.

Rockets had the best chance to upturn the Warrior cart but then CP3 had his typical injury of the season and messed that up for a better Finals.

He might just opt in for 1-year, get PG13 over to Cleveland for a 1+1 but PG13 really wants to play in LA. I don't blame him... Westbrook is an awesome player, but I don't think they'll ever get to the Finals in OKC. If I were PG13, I would settle for vet's minimum from the Warriors, Iggy is getting old... now that would be a super team.

I don't think LBJ has as many options as people think, in the East, it's either stay home or go to Boston (Canada is not an option). I hear Philly and NY but does LBJ really want to go anywhere else in the East?

In the West, join the Rockets or roll the dice in LA (either with Lakers or Clippers).

So many trades during the draft.

Not sure why ATL wanted Trey... Doncic much better.

Please someone explain why the Clips didn't take a chance with MPJ, especially after they traded up for Shai, who they wanted, and then didn't need another guard.

Still unsure about Bagley... Ayton is probably going to be good.

I think the Lakers did okay... Wagner is no a Kuzma... but their later picks seem to have been better than their lottery ones.

I was also hoping the clips would take MPJ. Seemed like the health risk was worth it where they picking

Best scenario rumor I've heard for Laker fans so far:

Lebron texts KD about going to LA
PG13 opted out of OKC
Lakers re-initiate trade talks with Spurs for Kawhi

So another big 4 for the Lakers? Lebron, KD, Kawhi and PG13? Doubtful but that would be much better than the Pau/Kobe/Nash/Dwight combo.

Lakes cannot afford all four. Best case scenario is three out of the four.
