KD Says He's Not Concerned With LeBron Comparisons Anymore

  • LeBron James Cavs

July 1st kicks off free agency, and this summer is extra special with LeBron James heading to the open market. So with the National Basketball Association season officially in the books following the sweep by the Warriors over the Cavaliers, here are three reasons why the James to Philadelphia rumors are about to heat up moving forward.

The Cavs have known all along that James' leaving again was a possibility, so they tried to build the best team around him for the past four years. If he was still on the Cavaliers, they probably wouldn't have been completely demolished by the Warriors just yet in the NBA Finals.

Despite Smith's assertion, it seems quite unlikely that James would sign with the Warriors. He scored 51 points, his career playoff high, while shooting almost 60 percent to go with eight rebounds and eight assists in Game 1.

In particular, a slowing of circulation as the polar regions warm up faster than equator ought to slow down storm tracks, as well. The effect has been more profound north of the equator, with the western North Pacific Ocean one of the most hard hit regions.

"You know, things can change".

"If you have a chance to win in this league, you have to go for it", Love said. Plus, the statistically worst lineup for the Celtics is one that has Kyrie Irving and Terry Rozier on the floor, because their playing styles are so similar that they crowd up the backcourt. Whether you get the job done or not, we all want to show up and do our jobs at a high level, because that's what got us all to where we are today as individual players and as a team. "I just think right now for him there's not an obvious choice".

But landing in Houston would be a lot more complicated than it sounds as it would have to see the franchise go way over the luxury tax and make multiple moves to pull it off. Also, Irving demanded a trade away from Cleveland, so the Celtics trading for James would likely create a bit of tension (assuming they did not trade Irving). Tristan Thompson and Jeff Green must win the battle on the boards and dominate the paint to slow the tempo. But Irving did not have any leverage and the Cavaliers, in their opinion, got the best offer from the Celtics in a deal led by Isaiah Thomas and the Nets' 2018 first-round pick. Yeah, I just have to take it as being present with the Boston Celtics.
