Lebron was drafted into the East and fought his way to the top of the conference by toppling the East regime, first in the Pistons, then in the Celtics. Then he beat back every legit East contender since. People say he plays in the weaker conference, and while that is true, he earned his way to his position. Lebron James is one of the greatest dynasties ever:

Are you talking about the 2011 Celtics led by guys in their mid 30s? You mean to tell me prime Lebron was able to beat them back with his teammate Dwayne Wade averaging 30/7/5? Shocking.

Maybe if they stayed in Seattle they could attract some stars but who wants to play in OKC?
Imo he should've left in 2010, imagine what he could've done already.
Those checks aren't bouncing, are they? Players have offseason homes and if they had time to checks the scene out in-season, the LA teams would have to move as very little of the area isn't a war zone.
