Yes, this will be what keeps FA from going there. They will be in Seattle or Vegas in a few years anyways.

It won’t matter because they never will get a big FA while they are in NO anyways unless they luck in to another Davis like guy in the draft and he can recruit a guy. Also idk how much players and the league actually will hold this against them. Seems like a lot of guys and teams are sick of Lebron’s horsefeathers with trying to pull these deals off behind teams backs and colluding. There’s probably a lot of players that love this move to spite Lebron.

i highly doubt that players would be anti-lebron in this case. the players want as much control as they can get. lebron is the most important person in basketball, and i don't blame him for using his power to get what he wants when his employers are always going to be doing the same thing.

i don't like the way the nba has become about the top 5-10 guys choosing where to win, but i don't blame the players for it (except for kd, horsefeathers kd)

Eh, I think guys are growing sick of Lebron and his horsefeathers. He’s a prick and makes life tough on his teammates. It was worth putting up with, with him in the east when you had guaranteed finals appearances and he was in his 20s/early 30s but that’s changing now. He isn’t guaranteeing you a finals appearance in the west and he’s getting old. It might not being worth putting up with for a lot of guys anymore.

He wasn’t able to get PG, didn’t get Kawhi and his camp even said he didn’t want to play with Lebron, I bet there’s guys happy he didn’t get his way here. Will be interesting to see what FA he’s able to bring in this offseason or if they can pull off an AD trade. It’s LA and Lebron, he’s going to end up with someone(s) but will be interesting if it’s who he actually wants or backup plans and his preferred targets (KD, Kyrie, Klay, Kawhi) go elsewhere (like NY, Warriors, Boston or Clippers).

Today was about as shameful as it gets in his gunning for 30.

Up 15 with 1:57 left, Mavs call a timeout and he stays in. Makes 2 FTs with 1:18 left to go back up 15. There's a foul a few seconds later and he still stays in. Then he chucks up a 3 with 50 seconds left to get to 31. Wish he would have missed that one just so he could have stayed in and jacked up another 3 with 15 seconds left.

And yeah, he's super boring and I can't stand watching the Rockets play.
