But, then, Brown knows more about basketball than I ever will.
And, besides, it’s hard to imagine Le Bron resisting the opportunity to build a superteam with the Lakers that could also include George.
CLEVELAND, Ohio - We learned last week that Le Bron James dreams of one day playing on the same NBA team with his three closest friends in the league: Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. REPORT: Le Bron would take 'pay cut' to play with Wade, Melo, Paul But the characterizations of childhood friendships with James support what is now apparent through his relationship with Wade, Anthony, and Paul: James is so fiercely loyal to those close to him, that he'd willingly declare in an interview he wants to join forces with them on an NBA team - knowing full well the controversy it would stir and the potential impact such a union could have on several franchises, including the Cavaliers. "A lot of guys are good friends with an NBA player, and they hang on. James arranged for both Joyce III (2008) and Travis (20) to try out with the Cavaliers' summer league team.
For his four best friends from high school, though, James wanted something entirely different. Part of James' support for his childhood friends, though, is the insistence they all shared that each make his own path, rather than live off James' stardom - no matter how difficult or less lucrative. That's not our guys, and honestly Le Bron respects them more for that too." The "Fab 5" from St. Mary is James, Joyce III, Travis, Mc Gee, and Sian Cotton - who'd known each other since they were small children in Akron. Cotton works an undisclosed job in the Akron area and continues to pursue a career in hip-hop music. Travis credits James for helping him land a European Nike contract.
But the more I think about it, the less I like the idea of Le Bron James.
Hard to imagine the Eastern Conference finals going seven games.
“For the first time since I have been here, there is tremendous clarity on what we have,” he said.
One can argue that the key to unseating a healthy Celtics team as the top contender in the Eastern Conference will lie on the defensive end of the court. The Rockets were able to take them to seven games in large part because they were able to hold them under 100 points in Games 4 and 5.
Look back to the 2016-17 Finals, the one title that Le Bron won without a hand-picked superteam.
The second part came at the end of the season, when he emphatically endorsed the notion that a player of such caliber would be a welcome and indisputable wise addition to his team.
Brown did not cite Le Bron by name, due to those pesky tampering rules that sports leagues insist upon, but the majority of people who listened to him came away with the understanding that he was referring to his personally anointed GOAT.
