Yeah. If Lebron came here, any championship he wins here would just be a part of his overall legacy, and not so much a Charlotte legacy. What the Spurs did last night and over the years is all Spurs oriented. That's the kind of thing I want for us.


Umm... No. If he did come to Charlotte I would run through the streets fapping. However, 0.000000000% chance that happens. So you're in luck.

It may sound a little strange, but I don't this place to be Lebron's next stop. By the way, didn't we get on Heat fans for bringing in all that star power and buying a championship? So what would that say about us if we followed their example, although it would only be Lebron coming to Charlotte. With all that said, I would rather see us win with team work and not be known as a great team because of one player.


What I really want is to bring in Kevin Love. Now he's a star in his own right, but he's not carrying the baggage of "best player in the world". I see him and Big Al as equals, and I see MKG and Kemba as emerging stars. With that group of guys leading the team, we can definitely win a few championships.


I don't want to sound rude, but I fail to see your reasoning. So you're cool with bringing in top tier FA's as long as their not the best? I don't think anyone thinks Miami's two titles are "cheap." They're titles. Even with the original Hornets, we have none. I just think it's funny as poo that Miami tried to "buy" the greatest team ever and failed.

What makes a title cheap? Were the Bulls cheap when they had MJ, Pippen, and Rodman? Are those 6 more MJ's legacy than the Bulls? No. They become that because we compare players of the past to players in the present. Even with the way the Spurs play, ultimately the Spurs 5 titles are Duncan's legacy when he's compared to other greats.

So what is an acceptable way to build a championship team? Do you have to draft your best player? Can you only sign players not expected to immediately hand you a title? Is it the players' motivation? I think FA's are going to want to be here more now because the future looks bright and MJ is taking on a bigger role. So if a player signs here just because of MJ, does that make it cheap?

Just curious.

Bron leaves and we win the division next year, it is that simple to me.

Just curious.

 

If quality players signed here because of MJ, I would say that would be credited as a Hornets' legacy because this is Jordan's town.  Well, he grew up in North Carolina so it's his home state.  If Lebron did sign here, it would probably go down in history as the ultimate partnership between him and MJ.  However in the end, people would remember Charlotte simply as Lebron's next stop and any championships that are won, would be more Lebron's championships than the Hornet's.  Of course this is just how I feel about it.

 

 

With all that said, I rather have Lebron as a rival.  I want to say my team beat Lebron's team, or better yet dominated Lebron's team.  I also don't want Clifford to get lazy with coaching, and force the ball to Lebron like the Heat did.  I've been laughing at the Heat this past season (even though they swept the floor with us), I don't want to eventually become the Heat.
