According to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com, if the Warriors “can create a max-salary slot this offseason, the defending NBA champions could position themselves to secure a meeting with LeBron James.”
He added, “Out of respect for the Warriors’ winning culture, James would listen if Golden State explored ways to clear the necessary cap space, sources said.”
Last night, I watched the New York Knicks get teabagged by the Boston Celtics. The Celtics didn’t play Kyrie Irving. As you know, Gordon Hayward didn’t play. So basically, the Celtics bench beat the Knicks at full strength 103-73.
Now imagine, if those same Knicks stepped onto the court and warming up in away jerseys was Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. It’d be a straight-up massacre. The Harlem Globetrotters against the Washington Generals.
This story only makes me realize the fact that I have NO idea how the salary cap works. Are Klay and Draymond working for food stamps? How is it possible to have two former MVPs on your roster and still have the cap flexibility to add the greatest player in NBA history?
I’d have no choice but to fully support at LeBron James Golden State Warriors team. The NBA would be absolute chaos. Daryl Morey and Sam Presti would move mountains to create their own bigger and badder super teams in Houston and Oklahoma City. Everyone else would tank. It would be CHAOS.
RIP to the city of Cleveland. Their economy would revolve around the sale of Iman Shumpert jerseys. They might sink into the Atlantic Ocean. We’d find Dan Gilbert dead in his car with the engine on locked in his garage.
The NBA needs a LeBron James Golden State Warriors alliance. This is like when the NWO formed in WCW. LeBron, Steph and Durant would be the new Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall spray painting the Warriors logo at center court after they beat a time by a bajillion.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think LeBron James would be a huge fuckboy and join the Warriors. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
