  3. 2 years in the West and Lebron has destroyed it

Literally the West looks like no team will stop the Lakers. Warriors been injured since he came, Westbrook and Harden don't wanna be on the west anymore, Clippers have imploded before even reaching Bron and Lakers are now attracting better players and signing them for favorable contracts.

Seems like more star players are on the east or trying to go there. Nobody wanna see Bron.

How can you still deny his greatness?

Lebron James didn’t all of the sudden make players want to sign for the Lakers...he signed with the Lakers himself. Players are just seeing they can live in LA and coast to easy titles so they are signing for cheap or staying for cheap.

Laker fans and bandwagoners are definitely in for a rude awakening if they think that goofy magic from last year will continue.

So how would players see that? By seeing how great LB and AD are on the court together. So how is that not Lebron bringing players here. He let Lakers run the show in year 1, he took over in year 2 and helped Pelinka make some great moves that won a title. We would never have AD the chip or all these players wanting to play here if Lebron didn't come here. What are you saying?

Because it’s not Lebron’s greatness that got the Lakers all of these players it was the Laker’s franchise greatness that attracted Lebron James in the first place. Lebron wasn’t the catalyst. The Lakers franchise was. Lebron just joined the most historic franchise with the best location in the league. Good for him? Picked the place where he knew the best players already are interested in anyway when the team is good. Bravo.

Are you f***ing kidding me? Are you a new Laker fan or a new sports fan. Lakers "franchise magic" died the moment Dr Jerry Buss (R.I.P.) died and Jim took over. He hired on coaches who hated us, dismantled our team, horrible draft picks for our team and made us the laughing stock of the NBA for over half a decade. Nobody and I mean NOBODY wanted to play for the Lakers. Clippers were getting better players than us. Players would literally talk s*** about how bad our interview process was. (LMA)

Lebron saved this organization with his star power and keeping the promise to deliver a ring. His job isn't done yet. He still needs to set the future of the franchise on the right track. He has been great in doing so so far but the jobs still not done.

So you saying this all happened because of the Lakers and not Lebron is false. Again, NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF LEBRON DIDN'T COME TO L.A. AND WIN.

yeah the lakers never attracted much in the free agent market over the last 10 years. they were dysfunctional organization and no one wanted to go there. LeBron goes there and suddenly people are taking millions of dollars less to come there. coincidence?
