    Regular season means poop.

    Celtics, Sixers and Pacers are all much stronger playoff teams than the Raps.

    Oh I know, but he said Lebron on Toronto would be a fit. Like, any team is a fit for Lebron. The Suns are a playoff team with Lebron...It was making fun of an obvious statement.

    just to be clear who actually made this statement (it shows as me for some reason in some re-posts)

    This is almost anxiety provoking. Good thing we’re adults and not children?

    Celtics won’t work if Kyrie is in the picture

    76’ers are the best bet unless Cleveland can pitch PG to join them.

    It comes down to Toronto’s new coaching staff. Perhaps they give LeBron input on that.

    I'm not much of a basketball fan, but I'd like to see him stay in Clevland. I don't know if it is possible, but perhaps Clevland can make some deals to acquire better players to surround Lebron. It seems to me (as a non-basketball fan who only watched the Final), that Lebron handles the ball way too much. I was surprised that he basically plays point guard AND power forward. If he didn't have to carry the ball up the court all the time, and actually had someone who could threaten to drive the net or shoot a three-pointer, then Lebron could post up or have a better opportunity to go one-on-one against someone down low instead of always being double-teamed.
    12 team, H2H, salary cap
    1 pt/G or A, 2 pts/W, 1 pt/OTL, 1 pt/SO

    Forward: N. Kucherov, B. Point, T. Meier, G. Landeskog, E. Lindholm, TBD
    Defense: S. Gostisbehere, M. Heiskanen, O. Ekman-Larsson, S. Girard
    Goalie: P. Grubauer, S. Varlamov

    League has been running continuously since 1997-98

    Be careful, your “stay in Cleveland” opinion might have people accuse you of stating the obvious. Strange mob cult like mentality at times here.

    I don't think he ends up in Toronto, but one thing that might be in the City's favour is bringing the first championship to Canada.

    I don't think he actually cares about that, but it could be a thing, if he's trying to find somewhere to do something that hasn't been done before. (I have no idea if other franchises have no victory's, but I figure the first for a Country trumps that a bit).

    "While the Sixers and Lakers would be able to swing enough cap space to actually make a run at James, the Raptors would have to magically gut their team of its highest-paid and best players to satisfy the financial demands of James, who would then have to be convinced to join a team devoid of its best players. See the issue?"

    so what you're saying is... he'd lose in the finals vs. Golden State again & the Raptors would look eerily like the current Cavs?

    I'm not saying anything, that is a direct quote from the Toronto Star :P But yes, I think you get the idea! That being said, until James signs elsewhere, I suppose there is no harm in dreaming, hoping, etc.

    You mean someone like Kyrie Irving?
