    Lebron just doesn't have the clutch gene. Players won't want to join him there and when he realizes he won't win in LA he will leave to where he can win or get out of the limelight. He will chase down wherever Kyrie is playing.

    Well that's what you get when you watch the NBA, players are getting paid for potential and not earning it. that's why college basketball, or even high school basketball is more enjoyable to watch.

    Lebron is an agent, he only wants black kids to have a slave mentality. He donated some money to a school, said it was his school, fucking liar, and told the kids no matter what they do they will always struggle instead of telling the kids you can be whatever you want if you stay the course. Lebron never struggled. He left the black school to go to a prep school.

    Stephen A!? How can you say that he's has better chance of winning a championship in L.A. than anywhere else???? Really??? With that talent he has now? Come on Stephen A!! LeBron tried to trade the other 4 starters on the team for 1 player. He couldn't even get one top Free agent to play with him this past season. Why? Because nobody wants to play with a guy that controls the team. He's been doing it for years. And J.Buss ain't going for that. And I don't blame her. Last I check.. COACHES COACH! & PLAYERS PLAY. And that's how it should be. Bottom Line.. nobody wants to play with you LeBron!!!

    U can’t win no ring in the west if Golden State Warriors have A 5 man superstar team or even with Curry and Klay Thompson And Draymond Green And cousins with no KD or Even With KD Lebron can make the playoffs but not win a ring in the West that’s my opinion.

    Kobe legit stays at home and raising his daughters. Jeanie and Rob probably hit up his phone and he gives an honest answer. Then Max comes in and wants to push some anti-lebron Kobe conspiracy.

    Max is clearly right in this arguement. LeBron is a great player in his own right but he needs help to get it done. Without help, he is just a great player that can get a team to the playoffs but won't be good enough to win it all.

    How is it that a player can make then a and not play defense?? The league is screwy these days.. Anyone else miss the days when everyone played at both ends of the court? Harden, great example of this kind of player, can shoot all day but do you see him play D very often?

    The title speaks for itself and I think that even if he stays, the Lakers won't win a championship with Lebron. Lebron said it himself, he's not use to losing.. He's also not use to being the cause of it.

    OMG at that LeBron graphic... could they kiss any more butt? Also.. they left out political hack/coward; as he is quick to get political when no response from "the other side" is imminent.. and has refused, on multiple occasions, to have even a simple dialogue with Ben Shapiro. Probably because his 5th-grade education would show... moving on..
