Default Imagine LeBron joining a team capable of winning 50+ games without him..

That team would be unfair


LeBron has spent his career joining 47, 33, and 35 win teams that were all lottery bound.

Imagine he joined a 50+ win team any time in his career?


Just adding LeBron would make it a dynasty.


They'd probably win 5 straight.

No.

They won 47 games without him in 2009-2010



"B-But the Heat added Bosh as well!!"


Yes, and Bosh + Wade only managed 37 wins in 2015 once LeBron left


They were a lottery team without him.

Nope, after MJ left Bulls added like 4 different players, one of which was a 6th man of the year.

If it was the same team less MJ, they would have been lucky to win 30 games.

Imagine LeBron not losing the finals 6 times.

But they were a dynasty WITH him.

It wasn't like they were losing in the finals every year, they 3-peated twice and won nearly 70 games three times with him.

So Jordan took a 55 win team and won rings?



LeBron took a 33 win team and won a championship beating a 73 win team.



What sounds more impressive?



Btw great thread Docs 5*

They added average replaceble role players wtf are you talking about "6th man of the year" stop lying. 94 and 93 Bulls were more less the same team and still managed to win 55.

Otoh the 2015 Heat and the 2011 Cavs failed to even sniff the playoffs without LeBron

No, they get swept in the ECF to the Bulls.

Wade shat the bed that series and LeBron bailed him out

MJ did more with less. Even though LeBron had more, he's still a loser with 6 finals losses and an epic 2011 failure.

You are a weak troll.

MJ left and Steve Kerr, Pete Myers, Toni Kukoc (went on to become 1995-96 Sixth Man of the Year), Bill Wennington, and Corie Blount were added.

It was a completely different team.

thats the thing jordan and kobe stans don't get... lebron took bad teams that had no business of winning and brought them to the finals. Kobe and jordan had stacked teams that could probably win replacing them with any decent player. Put lebron on a 50+ win team and he could 3 peat as well.

2 of the 5 players you mentioned were ****ing rookies added through the draft

Yeah and Pete Myers and Bill Wennington are scrubs not really difference makers are they

Also the Bulls were missing key rotation players such as Paxon and Scott Williams for most the season. Pippen was also injured in the 94 season they would have actually won at least 60 if everyone was healthy let alone 55
