Default Replacing LeBron with Curry on Golden State would not work

I have heard many LeBron stans say Golden State would beat Cleveland much easier if Lebron and Curry switched sides.

Problem with that theory is LeBron has not shown the ability to win without two Allstars, play in a complex offense or beat Western conference teams to get the Finals.

OP has made no less than a dozen straight threads about LeBron

We need J Shuttlesworth to make his LeBron compilation for TMZ like he does for the other posters who can't stop making threads about him

Yes, this was established during the Finals.

Livingston
Thompson
James
Green
Bogut


This would be an awful line up. LeBron needs knock down 3 point shooters to space the floor and spot up, that is mandatory for LeBron ball. Imagine LeBron kicking out 3 point shots to Livingston and Draymond Green. Worn down Bogut and little man Green won't be there to scoop up offensive boards like big Moz and TT to hide LBJ's sub 40% FG percentage. They would struggle to score 85 points a game.

Born can't win without wade and even then he's only 2/6. nikka knocked himself out of the top 10 shooting 33% in the finals this year and losing it for his team.

It really is an interesting question though.

I think a lineup of Curry, Iman, Jones, TT, and Moz could do some serious work. Livingston, Klay, Bron, Green and Bogut. A Curry pick and roll with TT or Moz would be pretty monsterous because of his high shooting percentage and their incredibly high offensive rebounding rate. On the other side of the ball it'd be interesting to see how they would play. None of those guys was a real offensive weapon until this year when Kerr put in a much better offense. Would they revert to Lebron ball and have people saying he doesn't have mich "help"?

Surround Curry with defensive oriented 10 ppg scorers and people talk about Greatest Team of All Time

Surround LeBron with defensive oriented 10 ppg scorers and it's "his team's fault that they suck, he needs more help."

This is my thinking as well. Curry on the Cavs would be far better than LeBron on the Warriors. A knockdown 3-point shooting, offensive scoring machine with GOAT level (off.) rebounders and defensive squad? Bron on the Warriors wouldn't work because Bron isn't a very good shooter. You can just single-cover him all series and none of the shooters will get open shots. We all saw what happened the first 3 games when the Cavs dared the rest of the Warriors to beat them. Those guys looked like hot ass without Curry getting them easy baskets.

LeBron was getting single coverage because his passing was killing the Warriors. Watch the games before you actually comment on them. Curry on the Cav's would be horrendous. Outside LeBron, the Cav's shot a combined 28% from the 3 and 37% overall.

People are being straight delusional. LeBron on that Warriors team in Curry's place would've probably swept the PO's. He took the 67 win Warriors and the champs to 6 games without 3 starters.

That is due to Cleveland getting much weaker. As much as Lebron don't fit in GSW, Curry on Cavs finals team would be downright laughable.

Watch the games. How many times do I have to tell people that?

LeBron scored or assisted on near 70% of the Cavs' total points. Again, watch the games instead of boxscore watching, dumb fuck. Try to figure out what the Cavs were doing when he wasn't in the game. Look at what the team was doing when LeBron wasn't running the offense, retard.

Watch the games, you pea brained Kobe turd. You want Delly, who can't dribble, to make plays? Iman? JR?

@23 seconds. That's like saying Kobe takes 90% of his team's shots.
