Shaq added that no matter where LeBron goes, even if he stays in Cleveland, he's going to find it hard to win another title because of the roster which the Warriors have built. "This is what we work for so LeBron going to Philly, I don't see that happening because they already have like the baby LeBron already with Ben Simmons".
"I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well". They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago. For Shaq, this included stops in Phoenix, Cleveland, and Boston. It was an open and futile effort to beat his rival and former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant in number of championships won. He has to let the Cavaliers know by June 29 whether or not he will opt out of the past year of his contract. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter. Los Angeles reporter Chris Haynes reported this week that Ball's name has been the one constant in all the rumors regarding the team going after LeBron. But, to their credit, they've developed intriguing franchise pillars, with max cap space and a few tradable assets, at a time when just about nobody else can say the same. "He's a legend, talked about as who is the best between him and Michael Jordan so he's set". Other organizations can pitch James starting on July 1, but the Cavs don't have to wait since he is already on their team. He's faced the Golden State Warriors each of those four years.
LeBron suffered yet another Finals loss this season at the hands of the superteam known as the Golden State Warriors, despite his best efforts, and many pundits are confident LBJ will be headed elsewhere to compete for titles that he can conceivably win alongside a better supporting cast, such as the Lakers, Rockets, or 76ers.
"But it's going to be hard". If LeBron leaves this summer and then Leonard leaves next summer, the Cavs will nearly surely be one of the league's worst teams. "Even with LeBron [on a roster], if you don't play the right way, it doesn't matter".
