I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic, thus pessimistic as well

That lineup was elite last year fwiw. 119 offensive rating 99.6 defensive rating

 

Edit: sample size though. It's the lineup that absolutely torched San Antonio and new Orleans but sucked against Charlotte.

Honestly, that lineup doesnt look  bad at all. However, I am more excited to see more of the late first and early second quarter magic potential lineups.   Our bench has been awful throught the past few years and with Simmons, Grant, Bamba and a healthy Isaac coming off the bench we will be able  to compete at a high level against other teams bench players.  The energy out of that group  should be off the roof.

It was going with Payton over DJ (injury I know but still ...) and inserting Simmons in SL over Ross that really killed our early season mojo.

And the Isaac injury weakened our bench. Isaac almost single handedly kept the second units from scoring on us.

No it was losing Ross and Isaac for most of the season.

Doesn't mean he doesn't want to.  Ronaldo should be a billionaire by now or long ago.  LeBron would be the first billionaire basketball player active from what his projection is.  He's made the right move to ensure he has the most money before he retires.  

 

As for winning goes, I don't even know what team LeBron even played for prior to this.  Its as if he just entered the league out of a hot air balloon.  That prior team was easily forgotten and probably will be in the pits for decades for sure. 

When considering this contract, I believe its a terrible contract.  LeBron is 34 people and fans are talking about them immediately being ahead of other teams in the Western Conference.  I want everyone to remind themselves that the Western conference is not a ****show.  I repeat, THE WESTERN CONFERENCE IS NOT A ****SHOW.  

The Western conference will not bow down to this Laker team and the competition will wear down LeBron James.  Especially since he'll have to play each team in the conference 3 to 4 times.

That is a good trade for Houston. Not because of knight but because if Chriss. He will strive in Houston offense.

I wouldn't expect that

I like the trade for Phoenix though. The problem is it kind of hurts Bridges minutes

Not at all! I dont see how the trade will affect him in any way. Anderson plays PF and Melton is a PG/SG. Bridges is mainly a SF.
