    If any team wants to stop GS they better pick some of those guys from that team and break them up...LeBron should worried about Clay Thompson,and Livingston...instead of kawai or kyrie or AD....and get pat riley or spolstras!

    All the speculation means nothing. They’re getting paid to hype shit up that’s not even true. These talkshows are just too opinionated from people can’t even play the sport, from people never played a sport before, from people who were not good at playing the sport before and it’s fucking pathetic

To do what ??? sit in the rocking chair??? come on man ... where are all the Jerry West disciples???? Turn the organization over to LeBron James AND his management team... the Man has been in the league 15 years... He knows how to run everything... I say let LeBron run the team for the next three years... take whoever He suggests and if they don't win in the next 3 years ... it's on Him...

    why the hell would Riley leave the Heat for the LAL? He has too much stock in the Heat, hell, he might become part owner when he retires from being president. And dont be surprised if he goes after some free agents next year. there are some interesting Free Agents next summer. Hayward, Drummond, AD, DeRozan have player options in 2020. Eric Gordon, Jahil Okafor are UFA. Sabonis, Ingram, Ben Simmons, Hield are RFA. So a lot of options.

    LeBron needs to stop passing the ball and drive to the basket like a ball hog. If the lane is clogged up, then shoot a 15-foot jumper. Rondo is one of the best passers in the league. There's no reason for LeBron to play the point forward. All they would need after that, is a big man who grabs rebounds and blocks shots.

    Why the fuck would Pat Riley go to Lakers? He is at front office heaven Miami Heat. Heat owner Mickey Arison doesn't care about winning anymore, happy to pay luxury tax, and he is not involved in any team decision. Pat Riley is 74 all he needs to do is cruise control until he retires.
