He makes his TEAMS better, and that’s what matters.If you're not a role player hiding in the corner waiting for kickbacks from Lebron, you're not going to like playing with him. Bron doesn't make his teammates better. That should have already been known.
7th seedIf AD stays playing at this level and Lebron returns to his 27/8/8 production since he's been on the Lakers and plays 60 games where do you think the Lakers land in the standing without any trades.
Teams adjust every 10-15 games
The next way to block the lakers is let AD eat and stop lonnie walker...take his 20+ points down to 10..aka..
And force the lakers to adjust again..
Without shooters...its easy to stop players..u need shooters to bail out bad possessions
They had shooters... 2 of them...The Lebron and AD are 77-44 in games where both play and that includes Westbrook starting all of last season.
If Lebron comes back and stays relatively healthy the rest of the way they are probably a 5th seed if we see this version of AD
