    Remember this is Lebron before his peak , yes Cavs made mistakes but ur telling me he didn’t have All-Star talent when he had mo Williams playing like one in Cleveland, and stuff happens like what most of the time happens like 2008 was damn near Cavs heading to the conference finals and Lebron played bad in 2010 in game 5 and 6 some of the blame has to go to Lebron and I doubt amare was staying in Cleveland championship or not

    Love ur vids..should’ve went more in depth on the boozer thing though....he hand a handshake deal with the blind owner of cavs at the time Gordon gund and he reneged on his deal after they released him from his rookie contract ...slime ball move not the cavs fault tho

    Step 3: Celtics build super team big 3
    Step 4: Ben Wallace and Shaq at latter days

    Excuse me, one name....Delonte West. Dating Lebron's mom behind his back, whole team knew including management. Now go look at his play off performance that season. No effort . How could you not know about that ???

  • Jason Chilado

    Basically the Cavs are super poorly organized and they always use lebron as their centerpiece and fit their entire roster around one person. That’s why they suck both times he left.

    Lebron's career to me is a cascade of what ifs? Imagine if management was better, imagine if he was more aggressive in 2011, imagine is Kyrie wasn't injured in 2015?

  • MICOLE WHYTE#Oneplus6T, A20, LG G6,

    Nobody would have beaten a prime stoudemire or LeBron lol you do realize that Amar'e stoudemire played literally no defense right?

    Bryan McNeil 10 months ago

    I respect players that stick with their team.. If they willingly leave, without getting traded, that’s a pussy move.. Lebron achieved redemption by going back and winning a title over the invincible Warriors.. And then leaves again.. People who argue the Lebron/Kobe/Jordan argument need to think about that.. Only one of those 3 jumped around..

    im assuming it has something to do with him being the only top 30-35 player on his team. while the rest of the teams around him got a lot better

    LBJ is not top 3 all time. Wtf? Michael, Kareem, Wilt, Bill Russel, and Magic. You can't tell me hes better than any of them.

    • Joseph Morales
      Joseph Morales 10 months ago

      @raider nation Bill Russell? The greatest Center of all time? 11 Rings? Wilt, 100 point game, highest average numbers of anyone not named Oscar Robinson. Or Magic the greatest PG of all time? He wouldn't exist without them. They would trash LBJ

    • raider nation
      raider nation 10 months ago

      Michael and Kareem I'll give you, but he is definitely better than wilt, bill, and magic

    the celtics or lakers would have still beat the cavs with or without amare that year way just amare makes 10 cavs a title contender

  • define crazy

    Dude you said 2 stupid things in this video.
    1. You said Bulls were a better organization then cavs before MJ came to NBA which is wrong,Cavs had more success Then Bulls up to that point.
    2. You said there is no way Lebron would have lost if he had Amare stoudemire, Which is stupid since Lebron lost to the Mavs the nest year when he was playing with a Prime Wade who was much better then Amare stoudemire and Chris Bosh who was at worst as good as Amare. but great video anyway

    Cavs should just move the team to Seattle, probably one of the worst franchise ever.. no ones gonna sign with them and they have to built from the draft.. also cav fans are so ignorant for booing Lebron when he left, cause he would’ve left earlier if he wasn’t from there..let’s see when things turn around, cause I’m a nets fan who went through tough times but they turning things around.

    Yo Dom 2k, after lbj won the title no cavs fan "cared" if he left. Yea, it sucked. Same time, he did what we all wanted. The first time he left yea it sucked but ima hit you with this theory.... Cavs traded big z to the wizards. Yea we had a backdoor deal to get z back but when z came back we let fat Shaq take his starting spot.
    Yea I know Shaq is Shaq but at this point he was old fat Shaq, while old, in my mind big Z was a top five center in that period. Plus Z could hit the three.
    Anyway, trading z showed lbj that the nba is just a business where the owners don't care about loyalty. That's why z went to the heat with lbj

  • Lj Ellsworth

    Cleveland had the best record in 09 and 10 and LeBron failed to win with those teams in 2010 they were top 10 in offensive and defensive efficiency.

  • Lj Ellsworth

    Magic was drafted to a Lakers team that couldnt win anything with Kareem and when he did get drafted.... boom. Dynasty.
    The Dream was drafted to a Rockets team that was 29-53 the year before he was drafted
    What did Shaq win with the Lakers before Kobe? Can anyone tell me?
    The Bulls were 27-55 before they drafted Jordan. What past success did the Bulls have prior to Jordan?

    Your videos are great. One little tidbit you forgot to mention is that jj Hickson and Bron were really good friends and that factored into the decision of whether to trade him or not.

    The second time he left wasn't basketball related. He's launching a cable network and can't run a media empire based in Ohio, it's as simple as that.
