All rumor of course, but in the end I doubt Lebron goes to LA unless he feels they can put a team together to take down the Warriors, or Rockets for that matter.
Who is this Kyrie Leonard? Certainly, a player with Kyrie's offensive repertoire and Leonard's defensive prowess would be a runaway for the 2019 MVP Award.

I had a dream that Lebron joined forces with Kawhi in SA so it must be about to happen. My dreams don't lie!

On the other hand, he clearly is obsessed with winning as many titles as MJ. Lebron has legacy on his mind, and in order to fulfill his compulsion, the Lakers probably would not be the route to take.
Houston would be the choice but they would have to ditch a ton of salaries …...even if they do make for him how would chemistry be with Harden, Paul, and Lebron?
I think a team who would zoom to the top with Lebron would be the 76ers. They are loaded with talent, and the Lebron playing besides Simmons and Embid…..yikes.
Go to Philly Lebron......I have no horse in this race being from Milwaukee, but having him in Philadelphia with that boatload of talent would be fascinating.
The MJ debate is over. Lebron is not MJ. Lebron is the GOAT of his generation. He should focus on cementing his legacy and not try to duplicate the legacy of MJ.

MJ can be considered of the GOAT of the NBA. He was the one who gave the NBA that big and final push to international success. His NBA games were exciting and dramatic. Off the court, he made basketball sneakers in mode in fashion. Remember, his sneakers make Nike 1 billion dollars annually. He helped bugs bunny defeat the Monsters.

NBA OG Pioneers = Bill Russell + Wilt Chamberlain

NBA Trailblazers = Kareem, Magic and Larry

NBA GOAT = MJ

Generational GOAT = Kobe, Lebron

Superstars = a plethora of NBA players can fall on this category.

I guess the Lakers will trade Lonzo (maybe Ingram if they can get someone good for him).

Lakers will be pretty decent.

Kuzma
Ingram (if not traded)
Lebron
Paul

maybe trade Lonzo for someone.

I like that list and how you formed it although I would still argue that Magic is the best player I've ever seen. I'm biased of course as a Lakers fan. Sure you can drop a few more into Pioneer and Trailblazers but mostly only nba fans would know the names.

I would welcome a Lonzo trade because of his stupid Dis tract of Kuzma. Kuzma is 3 times the player and Lonzo says that crap??

I just don't know what we can get for him, how about a straight trade for Markelle Fultz? I might do that just to get rid of him!!

I'd include Kareem with OG Pioneers and also Oscar Robertson.
