Default Why is all the media okay with LeBron creating yet another superteam?

Not one bit of criticism. They are almost rooting for him to do it...

Not to mention, one of the teams he is rumored to be joining(Rockets), is of a very similar talent level and situation as the Warriors team that Durant joined.

The Rockets won 65 games and were 43-3 during the regular season with Chris Paul, James Harden and Clint Capela in the lineup. They would have very easily been a 70+ win team in the regular season and would have likely won it all if Chris Paul doesn't go down.

Chris Paul out for 24 games

Harden out for 10 games

Capela out for 8 games

Gordon out for 13 games

The hypocrisy is out of control.

33 year old chris paul had the 'GOAT team' down 3-2, on the verge of elimination before he took an arrow to the knee.

If the Rockets core already won a title....then arguably got even better....then Lebron went there...you would hear about it.





That was it.

Thats the difference. Which is why Lebron cant go there now.

So hypothetically it would be okay to join the most talented team ever as long as they haven't won the title yet?

Its all "ok" morally.

But joining a champion....especially one who got it by beating you...its just next level lame. Lebron joining the Warriors right now would be met with rolled eyes across the entire earth(at least among adults).

If youre in it for fun and games...dont care what people think....fine. You just cant win with a team that won already and expect everyone to give it full credit. Not short term at least. In time...people dont even remember how anyone got to any team. Kids in 2042 are barely gonna know KD was on the thunder.

There also wasn't a team on the level of the current Warriors that Durant was joining up to beat.

He joined the dominant team of the time.

Lebron joining a team to beat the Warriors is much different than creating it in the first place.

So if Kyrie and Love don't get injured in 2015 and the Cavs repeat then it would be okay for Durant to join even though the talent is exactly the same? The end result would be the same no matter how the team was formed.

The talent of the team is all that should matter.

Again...."ok" doesnt matter. It isnt a moral question.

If Durant won a title on the Cavs....who had won back to back...no. He would not get full credit there either. Not until the current generation of fans were gone/old.


Edit:



Ah I see you meant join the warriors.

If the Warriors had not won the title already....yes...joining them would be looked at as less of a bitch move. Still be lame since hed be joining the team he just lost to.....but once they win it all you just arent getting the same love for them winning more.

I'm not even talking about how much credit you would get for winning. I'm talking about the amount of criticism you would get for joining/creating a superteam. And in my opinion the talent of the team should be the only factor, regardless of how it was put together.

LeBron is being rumored to join teams stacked with talent and/or assets to get talent and there is no criticism at all....
