They need an actual team with shooters/defenders and a competent center.


YOU ARE CORRECT.. They need a team that can win even if Bron is hurt. A team that can go 17-5 if Bron is injured.. Another all star is not a smart move. Get two or three players that can play basketball..

Beverly, Reddick, Lebron, Kuzma, AD is perfect blend of offense defense shooting..

Beverley can be gotten for full mle (like 6.5m/yr). He made only 5m last year. Imagine a Butler/Beverley backcourt

Then use the veterans minimum for those ring chasing vets like Vince Carter.

Uhh, what?

Vince has been playing for bottom feeders like the Kings and the Hawks...wouldn't exactly call that "ring chasing."

Beverly would be a difference maker anywhere but I dont see him taking a tiny deal. Hes got career earnings of 20 million with half of that gone to taxes. Hes 30. This has to be his money contract. He needs to take the most he can get. Hes barely even got rich forever money IF he takes care of it and has spent almost none so far. 10-12 million net for the next 40-50 years? Hes gonna get an NBA pension but still....hes not rich the way we think of athletes being rich. Hes like....good dentist rich going forward. Hes gotta use this deal to set himself up forever. In his position im not taking less to win. Im going to whoever offers the most even if it means winning 26 games next year.
