So these past few days MJ, Barkley and now Magic have lashed out on Lebron stating that they would of never joined forced with eachother or players like Bird or Abdul Jabbar because they are competitors and they want to be on a team of their own and beat one another. Ok that is understandable. But the NBA is slowly on the decline and I know Lebron knows what he is doing. Since in the league, Lebron has truly built himself from the brand up to become a worldwide basketball figure/icon. Yes everyone is saying Kobe is better, or the best in the game, and has more rings, but everyone would totally agree Lebron is a better brand and better for marketing nowadays.
Lebron has now decided to join Bosh and Dwayne Wade is a 6 year deal, and option to opt out after 4 years. Even if he stays the full 6yrs, I am pretty sure one of them would sign with a different team. Lebron, Wade and Bosh are all young and Lebron is the youngest out of all of them being 25 and I am sure when he is 30-31, he is still going to be scary good or maybe even better since it would be his prime. At that time he will have a at least 3 rings or maybe even 4 rings if he gets lucky. I think this is where Lebron got smart. Soon after this move to Miami, the NBA will start to change since star players want to follow the SuperFriends footsteps and build a team with 3 superstars like wade, bosh and lebron
Recently, Chris Paul wants to join the Magic, Lakers, or the Knicks befiore the season starts. If he goes to the Lakers, which I doubt, they will be up their with the Heat as a Super team or the Magic with Dwight looks preety scary too. If he joins the Knicks, rumors are carmelo will follow next year and that will be super scary too! Players are soon following the Big Three of Allen, Pierce, and Garnett because they know it works and soon the NBA will evolve in a Superteams scenario where there are at least 6 teams across the country that are scary good with 3 consistent all stars and the NBA will definetley benefit off this because it would a David vs Goliath story if teams like this played or lost to teams like Golden State or Suns, OKC etc...... That would be fun!
Ok now Lebrons part, Lebron will come out after 4-6 years with the Heat and his Superfriends on top with at least 3 rings and still 30 playing strong. He will get another $100million plus contract with another team and most likely new deals along the way since he is or has been a champion and here where the fun will start.
Imagine the games between Wade and Lebron after they split up. It will be like a Shaq vs Kobe since they had a history behind them. This Lebron vs. Wade Games will be classics especially if they are in different conferences because Kobe will be long gone by then and they will be the next KObe vs Shaq or Bird vs magic. I cant wait!!!
(sorry this was long...tell me your thoughts and of course your criticism lol...
