              If he wants championship this 2019-2020 season, he needs to improve on his defensive end and stop being a PG. By the way he needs to stop chasing stats too and play with the team.

                                              Yes, LA is a dumpster fire, but you left out on an important point: it was LeChoke who made all the awful the personnel decisions that ultimately ruined the team, including getting rid of the coach. Now, they're getting Tyrone "I got stepped over by Allen Iverson like a little bitch" Lue to run the circus...

                                                Here come Lebron fans accusing him of hating! Hating Lebrons defense is accurate though.. but I played college ball at a small d2 school in Missouri and I text my old coach frequently during the nba n college season n asked him to watch Lebron on defense to see what his take was maybe I’m blind or just hating,... he said the man just quit playing defense n is more worried about staying back and snatching a rebound from a teammate to fill the box score than get down on offensive end n get a easy bucket or get the defense out of position..he said Lebron has basically given up on defense

There's talk about Lebron needing help to win championships. If you looked at every team Lebron been on and I see high quality players on every team.... But when he loses a finial series, it's all he didn't have any help! He's suppose to be the BEST player in basketball and he can't win with his current team! Michael had Pippin, but MJ helped Scottie to be the player he was, FACTS! And the rest of the team were role players. Kobe, after Shaq left, got Paul, and a bunch of role players and won a few more rings. San Antonino, is a role playing team and we know what they did to the Heat. Golden State, only picked up KD and their a home grown team.
                                                                        As great as Lebron suppose to be he can't do it without have two or more all star players on his team!
                                                                        Side note: Michael Jordan would not played on the same team with Reggie Miller, Kobe Bryant, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, or Lebron James in their prime. He rather compete against them then win a ring with them.

                                                                        That's what GOAT do!

He's working on setting up a Political Action Committee for Hillary to run in 2020. Although, I think there is a slight chance that he will become a "Closet Republican" after discovering that the taxes in LA are a lot higher than Cleveland. The Lakers are gonna be paying Lebron $41 million in a year that he will turn 37. Just wondering who is the highest paid 37 year-old NBA player right now? Vince Carter is pretty good for his age, but I think he is playing for chump change compared to Lebron's contract.
