MJ could've won it in Cleveland

Jordan could have never done it alone. In fact, no one could. The few unbiased fans and analysts during that era admit it as well. Bird and Magic had very solid teams too. KD is a straight up beast who can win MVPs and scoring titles but he can't win a title without Russell. It's no different than when Kobe had Shaq during their three-peat.

MJ didn't cry like a bitch to the media after a hard foul causing a 20k fine for no reason other than he's a giant puss who thinks everyone should move when he barrels down the lane. fug that weak poo. go up hard go down hard. part of the game. I've seen bird and MJ take way worse shots than that on a no call.

Yeah, I like how he can act like a gigantic douche most of the time and then when somebody gets physical with him he pouts and cries and says "IF THIS WAS THE 80'S I WOULD'VE GOT UP SWINGING!"  No.  No you wouldn't have.

This has nothing to do with the topic.

If you wanna bash him, there's a thread for that already.

Lebron wasn't alone.  He may not have had the same level of talent that the Bulls ended up with, but the Cavs were putting teams around him that were good support and arguably as good as when MJ won his first ring.  The James of today probably COULD win it all with the teams he had in the last couple years he was in Cleveland.  I think he is a better player now.  The thing is, MJ just has a killer instinct I don't know any other player has, and I think the talent in Cleveland other than Lebron was good enough that MJ could have won rings.  Except that Cleveland wasn't done building around Lebron either.

 

Lebron also could have stayed in Cleveland and ended up with either Wade or Bosh that summer.  There were deals on the table, he just didn't want to stay in Cleveland.  Which is fine, his choice.  I didn't like how he publicized it, but hey, whatever.

Watched the 30 for 30 Bad Boys where Jordan credits the Pistons beating the crap out of him for pushing him.

 

No way Lebron would have survived the 80's

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
