Default Why are we all assuming Lebron wants Butler?

Lebron and Magic are smart enough to know that spending a max on Jimmy Butler of all people when people like Kawhi, AD, and KD are available next year is more than ridiculous. I highly doubt Lebron even likes Butler based off of his locker room actions, how well he gets along with teammates and overall his impact on the court. Butler barely made the playoffs with KAT and people wanna see it as another star not wanting to play with Lebron? How laughable. Butler doesn’t deserve a spot on the Lakers.

Besides, Josh Hart is already shaping up to be a better version of Butler. One that can actually shoot a three. I wouldn’t give up any one of the Laker young core for him. Probably none of the vets either. Beasley is gonna be a big steal for the Lakers.

Honestly who gives a fuq about Jimmy Butler? He doesn't make any elite team more of a contender.

Warriors still have the championship on lock next year.

AD isn't an FA until 2021. If he tells the Pelicans he wants out they could trade him this upcoming season but they would want a huge package in return, the kind of deal LA can't put together without offering James (and even then assuming James hasn't started to decline).

But having James without a no-trade clause is a huge asset, I won't deny that. If they trade him while he's still at an MVP level they can get a young superstar to carry them into the future.

Jimmy Butler is mad that LeBron didn't want him on the Cavs and didnt hide it.That's really why Kyrie left, only a few people know that thoughSo he is making it known that he doesnt want to play with lebron so he doesnt get rejected again.


I know what ill do.Ill break up with here before she can break up with me

Lebron's hit multiple game winners on Butler and sent him home in the playoffs every time they ever faced. Jimmy is nothing to Lebron.

But my comment wasn't about Lebron, it was about Butler. He is overrated AF.

Depends on the price.

Butler/Ingram/Lebron on the wings would be insanely good for trying to beat the best teams in the league.

A Thibs coached player won't have much legs past age 30 add that he wants $35 mil a season until he's 35. Let the Knicks make that mistake, Lakers have better options.

Because he's known for colluding with superstars in their primes and taking shortcuts to cheap rings.

Simple really.

By that logic Harden took the Warriors to 7 alone with zero allstars.

Our hero got SWEPT in historically embarrassing fashion to the same team WITH an allstar
