It’s official, LeBron torches Cavs fans once again leaving his home town, this time, for LA. It’s crazy to think that the best player of this generation has to do this continuously, but here we are. LeBron wh*res himself out to try to contend for another NBA Finals appearance.
James will now directly butt heads with the Warriors which will without a doubt, make things very very easy for the Celtics in the east. The Celtics will have the easiest path to the finals, which will entertain us for years to come. It’s actually a low key genius move by LeBron. You can’t lose the NBA Finals if you don’t make it there in the first place…
The biggest sideshow in the league will now be watching Lonzo attempt to play with LeBron and LaVar crying about how LeBron is taking points away from Zo. The only question now is, who joins him in LA, surely the Lakers aren’t done. They can’t contend with Golden State solely with LeBron. Look for the Lakers to make a push for Kawhi Leonard.
You gotta feel for Cavs fans here, they were all psyched to get their guy back and he does it to them again. That and LeBron basically ruined their future by forcing Kyrie out of town then leaving himself. Poor Cleveland won’t play a meaningful basketball game for at least the next 5-7 years. It’s sad, really. And they’re already convinced he’s going to come back which is oh so sad:
