    Can't see the pic but judging by the name I'm guessing you disagree. It's not even close, arguing otherwise is fan boy nonsense. LeBron is still hated for what he did, many of those people, like me, where indifferent about him prior. People like to think he is hated because of his greatness, that's also nonsense. I have all the respect in the world for true legends, he just doesn't meet that standard imo.

      I think it's safe to say nothing will ever compare to the nonsense LeBron pulled. You would have to go out of your way to make people hate you to exceed that. Let's not forget the "special," the trash talk about winning 8 championships in a row or whatever it was. Durant may have taken a similar route but it's somewhere between the LeBron and KG route. It's hard to not consider this era as well, this is all the norm now, but people are gonna hate because it's an established team he is going to.
      You completely ignored what I posted. I basically said aside from the special & LeBron leaving home this is by far worse. A 73 win team gets a top 3 player in the NBA. The Warriors have 4 of the 5 Western Conference all stars starting for them at this point. It don't get no more lopsided man. You can focus on the special all you want, but it doesn't compare in the pairing of superstars.

        Don't have to worry about him taking buckets away from Butler, at least. I've always felt that in the right situation Rondo is great. We'll see, though.

              Yes, this is a LEGEND
              Disagree, he has done all that in a pretty weak era of basketball all while teaming up with other stars. You're free to have your own opinion, I'm not trying to change it. Imo, you put LeBron in with the era of true legends and you get another Karl Malone. He wouldn't know what to do with himself in an era where fake superstars can't run off and team up.

                Does that not meet the requirements of an established team?

                Totally awesome response, no true argument for the contrary though. Ironic because that's kind of Jon Stewart works lol.

                          Lol just aside from that huh? Awesome argument, if we ignore the worse of the circumstance, then the circumstances don't seem so bad. Who woulda thunk it?

                          I agreed that it was a weak move for Durant, but that's what the league is now. We will have to wait to see if it's gonna translate to championships or not. Durant did what was "best" for him. That was the argument LeBron lovers made for him even though he spat in plenty of faces on his way out. Durant did nothing "wrong," he just left. LeBron could learn something from him on that.

                            If you're not trolling you should be banned from talking basketball lol. I see no logic in what you say with all of the weak era of basketball & all of the Karl Malone smack. Like you said & same to you. I'm not trying to change your mind. The accomplishments speak for themselves.!

                              Because I disagree with you I should be banned? Lol! That speaks volumes sadly.

                              LeBron wouldn't have half of those accomplishments in that era, that's my whole point, I don't see the confusion. He would have nice stats and be respected around the league, but no jewelry.

                              He would never been able to lead a team past the Michael Jordan lead Bulls. I don't think he could have beaten the Olajuwon lead Rockets either. That's why he would be another Karl Malone, it's not much of an insult, yet panties are way bunched up in here.

                                See, you are assuming & assuming isn't good. Did you notice how I lol after the ban thing? I actually stole it from Stephen A Smith, he used to say to Skip Bayless all of the time.... Don't flatter yourself ...

                                Vote & look at the results from age to States... You'll clearly see that older people like you and I think he is a legend. Top 10 of all time would be considered a legend in my book man... You could say well those are just fans, but fans of all ages and all states...
