Well he has two chips. in the annuls of time people will look at numbers.

in the same way derek fisher has 3. So Fisher > kd
I don't think so, everyone still reminds him about the move he made to the Warriors and how unjustifiable his rings are.

Hard to forget when KD decided to join the team with the best winning record in NBA history.

Of course he did, but the difference was the Heat before Lebron got there were just a first round exit if anything after Shaq. Not a 73 win team.

He got battered by the Warriors mate. Up 3-1 and couldn't close them out.

Still soft to join Bosh and wade cause you are not good enough to take the hardest road like Giannis. Dirk.

Imho.

Ditto the ad. Irving. Love success.

First, if you know much about USA Milwaukee is a much better city than Cleveland. Hence it is easier to get better players to come to a better city.

Second, Clevelands front office did f*ck all to help Lebron in terms of getting half decent plsyers, he pretty much made that franchise relevant and took a starting 5 of Drew Gooden, Daniel Gibson, Sasha Pavlović, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and himself to the finals like what more did you want him to do when that was the best Cleveland could do for him at the time.

Idk much about USA, but I've heard Milwaukee it's a terrible city. They can't get fa targets and players like sterling brown get attacked by cops at 7/11. also smaller market And more dangerous than cavs land

You look at the bucks roster they have hardly been seen as an attractive market.

They have to sell the farm for Jrue who literally can't shoot. Imagine lebron being with a pg who shoots 4/20, 4/19 and can't lay up. The tears wouldn't stop.

Which may have set them back 10 years (relocate the team?) If Jrue / Giannis didn't re sign.

Anyway you cut it. Lebron's rings are similar to kd for mine

Exactly.

For sure small market teams aren't winning championships through FA but through the draft.

Lebrons starting PG at cleveland before Kyrie was Daniel Gibson who ave 7.8 ppg for his career that alone should tell you the garbage lebron played with.

I wouldn't think so Milwaukee is a bigger market than Sac, NO etc

Agree to disagree.

What is the hardest road though? Just because Giannis won this year does it qualify as the hard road? Injuries to key personnel on other teams had an impact signficantly. because at days end, if say the nets won no ones talking about the hardest road.

Of course that's not to say the bucks wouldnt have won if lebron, davis, harden, KL etc were fit

It's staying building up a sh*t team and city from the ground to champions. Dusty could have gone to gws and won 5 but did it the hard way instead.

Bucks beat the superteam nets one of the most stacked ever teams

There are always injuries, such as the kawhi/ raptors ring you still get the trophy.

If your aunty had balls. Giannis played with a snapped knee, elbow, calf and flu according to injury reports. Fat ass harden was still playing. If your on the ground your right to go.

The bucks have very few decent players and one of them donte was out which is rarely noted

Jrue can shoot, just inconsistently.

What you're describing is Michael Carter-Williams.

You really hate mcw hey?

Jrue 3 point stats where better than I was expecting tbf
I don't hate him, his career just stalled because he couldn't shoot.

Jrue's scoring efficiency in New Orleans was always reasonable, especially given he barely gets any free throws. IMO his shot arc is too flat to ever be consistent, but it is what it is.

Reminder that this is the guy he replaced. First set is the conference finals loss against the Raptors, second is the series loss against the Heat last season.

I appreciate bledsoe was comically bad.

Hence bucks having to give* 5 first round in the Jrue expiring contract trade

*essentially
