When LeBron James made “The Announcement” in the summer of 2010, the world was taken by surprise. The NBA’s new trend of Super Teams had begun. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James were all playing together. At the time NBA fans believed LeBron James when he said this:
Fast forward to 2016. LeBron James is back on his home team, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Unanimous reigning two-time MVP Stephen Curry led Golden State Warriors have made a historical comeback from a 1-3 deficit to win against the Oklahoma City Thunder power house composed of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The Golden State Warriors are now in the finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers and are leading the series 3-1. Well, Deja Vu sets in and the Golden State Warriors blow the lead and end up losing the series as LeBron James brings Cleveland their first sports title in 52 years.
Many would say that this championship win by LeBron James would erase the Cleveland Cavaliers fans memories of him deserting the team in 2010. Little did NBA fans know that the 2010 decision would cause a ripple in time and forge the path for many betrayals in the future.
After blowing a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals, Kevin Durant not only decides to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder, but he decides to go to the Golden State Warriors. Now, the Golden State Warriors have already won a championship in the 2015-2016 season, finished the 2016-2017 season with 73 wins which is an NBA regular season record for most wins in a season, and they already have Stephen Curry who had made 400 three-pointers, also a record for most three-pointers made in a season (a record previously set by Curry, twice). Kevin Durant, a former NBA MVP, teams up with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, arguably the two best shooters in the world.
STOP COMPARING LEBRON’S MOVE TO KEVIN DURANT’S.
They are not the same.
Not only has LeBron played with the WORST TEAMMATES in the history of WORST TEAMMATES:
but yes. He lead THAT team to an NBA finals in 2007, only to get swept by the San Antonio Spurs.
Kevin Durant went to a 73-9 team that were already going to the finals with or without him. Not to mention, Kevin Durant was beating this team in the Western Conference finals 3-1.
Where are you people getting that LeBron James and Kevin Durant even did anything remotely similar?
