^^Agreed. LBJ made a serious case for top 3 greats of all time. Still not MJ, but he's closing the gap.

Seriously the most insane performance I've ever witnessed.

He led BOTH teams in Points, Rebs, Assists, Steals, and Blocks .... that is absurd. I think be the time he retires he will have passed MJ, and here is why:

Wow, surprised Durant is heading to Golden State.

Yeah, I get it from both sides, but also sucks as an NBA fan. Fingers crossed OKC trades Westbrook to the Cavs out of spite.

Knicks making a lot of moves, on paper they're looking like a 4-6 seed if the old guys stay healthy.

I'm bummed the Wolves didn't get Mirza, he would have been a perfect fit for them.

Belated Congrats to The Warriors and Fans for another NBA Championship and KD for Finals MVP. Looks like round 4 next year already. LeBron averages a triple double and they are blown out 4/1. The Warriors are loaded, dominated the playoffs and the finals. How long can they pay that roster?

^^^Yes, congrats to the Warriors fans.

Hope the Jazz can resign Hayward and either G. Hill or a REALLY GOOD PG.

If you are not watching the 30 for 30 Celtics/Lakers Best of Enemies, you are doing yourself a disservice. As good as it is, the amazing thing is what a lot of these guys have done in the game after their playing days. What a bunch of crazy great basketball minds.

I am TIVOing it each night. It is excellent. Good luck hanging on to Hayward, also congrats on the nice playoff run. Chris Paul is available.

Dang Warriors! They really put the smack down on the Cavs this year. I think that put the LBJ vs MJ convo on hold for a while.

I'd love to see the Cavs pick up another defender/shooter. Kyrie, Love, JR, Korver, are not exactly known for their defense. I'm really liking the Durant vs LBJ for next season.

I dont count rings to determine greatness, lots of people do so its 100% acceptable reasoning. Of course that means Charles, Malone,Stockton, Bernard King, Vince Carter, Chris webber, Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, George Gervin, Patrick Ewing, A. Iverson, Elgin Baylor and lots more Greats never won even 1 let alone several.
I think LBJ is better than MJ. Bigger, stronger, faster, dominates games thru more than just scoring and defense.

I think the Cavs will have to give up Love or something to be able to afford someone like Paul George. Interesting times in the NBA.

^^agreed that rings aren't everything but to be the GOAT you need more than 3.

And I'm a huge LBJ fan but for him to surpass MJ he needs championships at this point. He already has MJ in almost every stat.

It is going to be difficult for LBJ to beat a great team like the Warriors, same for all the teams in the west to advance. Thats gonna hold him back for at least another 2-3 years. Most of GS is in their prime.
Paul George is going to be a Laker. Some team may rent him for next year but after that, LA bound.
Jerry West is a Clipper, ouch. Another Great with only 1 ring as a player. I think losing to Boston all those times really took a toll on his psyche.
Draft coming up!! I sure hope Lonzo Ball becomes an NBA great. Pretty good draft class.

Ugh, can't stand the Lonzo Ball and family. I'm hoping his game will look like his jumper.

I think the Cavs can beat the Warriors but they need better defense. I'd love to see Butler end up there.

I dont think Butler is going anywhere this year. Cleavland just let their GM go, Gilbert doesnt pay, he's a dick and dick owner. Its going to affect who will go there.
Lakers dumped Deangelo Russell and Timofey Mosgov for Brook Lopez.. $$ dump and attitude dump. Lopez has only 1 year left on his contract.
You may think im crazy but I think LeBron just may move on out to LA after 2018 season. If Lonzo is a real player and PG13 comes....I think you know what i mean

and 2 days later the Bulls trade Jimmy Butler. But for what? Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick in the draft (Lauri Markkanen)... the bulls got F'd. They didnt even get a starter. I hope the Pacers, who have less say are as nice to the Lakers when they take PG13.
As expected, Lakers took Lonzo Ball, the pick isnt exciting (expected) but the future is.
Cleveland is unraveling thanks to Gilberts ownership.
