I don't think the off season is a good one for Lebron to re-calibrate. Team up with Paul George to win a championship? Really think Paul George gives him more than Kevin Love? George is a better player, but when you factor in redundancy of skill set, Love is a better team-mate for Lebron than George, no?
Lebron's only hope is that Kawhi forces a trade to a team that will then have enough cap space to allow Lebron to sign up as a FA; or maybe willing to do a sign and trade with CLE (who may be open to that since they will be in rebuild mode anyway).
I guess Lebron could sign with the Sixers, who then trade Fultz, Laker pick, Sixer picks, maybe Saric to entice Spurs to trade Leonard (Saric will be the sticking point probably, but Spurs would be smart to insist he be included, otherwise it would be an awful trade from their end).
Yeah, the more I think about it, if the Sixers can get Leonard, they can get Lebron. This will put pressure on Boston to trade for Leonard, won't it? Part of a good offense is good defense, and vice versa. Celtics in a much better position to offer an enticing trade package than Philly. It is not even close, unless Philly includes Ben Simmons, which would be trading the future away for the present. Obviously Embiid is not touchable.
Will be a very intriguing off season.
