Cooper/Scott backcourt with LBJ/Worthy/Kareem frontcourt. It would have been similar construction to Celtics. McAdoo, AC Green, etc. would have come off the bench probably. Ya they would have won championships.
LeBron may have won a couple of championships with the Showtime Lakers, but no way in hell does he have the intestinal fortitude to lead his team to victory against those Celtic teams, and probably not the Pistons either.

I can't be the only person that saw him want no part of JJ Barea in single coverage and looking for Juwan Howard to bail him out on key possessions in these Finals, right? LeBron mentally checks out when things don't go his way. It was plain as day in these Finals, and in Game 5 against Boston last year. He's the ultimate frontrunner, which is why he wanted to join forces with another superstar instead of trying to beat him.

Larry Bird and the Pistons would have gotten so far into his head it would have been comical.

I always liked them. I was just mad at Lebron and his lessor play in the finals. In the end I don't think it would have mattered. Dallas was shooting out of their minds. How can you beat at team shooting 70% from 3? I can see how the Lakers lost 4 in a row to them. They were shooting at an inhuman pace. They were hot and it was their year.

Nevertheless I wouldn't mind trading one of the Big 3 for Dwight Howard. Take your pick. Any one of the 3. He's going to leave anyway. So at least Orlando gets something. Most ideal would be Wade. He's getting slighty older although still not old. But the longest time frame would be Lebron, Howard and Bosh.

By playing better defense?

How did that work for the Lakers?

"He's getting slightly older although still not old."

What, does Wade age differently than the rest of the universe? What kind of bs is this? You do realize that Wade was drafted the same year as Lebron and Bosh, and that he ages at the same rate as them. LOL.

Lebron came out of high school. Wade came out of college. Lebron is several years younger. Why is that hard to understand? Wade still has 2 - 3 top years left but I'm not sure about 5 - 6? I think Lebron can have 6 - 7 top years left.

By several, you mean 3, right? And Bosh? Surely he isn't aging at a slower rate than Wade. You are also conveniently ignoring the fact that they've all had the same amount of NBA seasons logged on their bodies.

Bosh and Lebron are younger than Wade. When you get close to 30 or above it things change in the NBA. Now I think Wade can have 2 - 3 real top years left. But Lebron and Bosh may have 6 - 7 top years left. So you would be better off to build with Lebron and Bosh.
isnt Greg Oden older than all of them?

What is has to do with anything is they were a super hot shooting team on fire and were not to be stopped this year by anybody.

Especially when the other team lets them come back from a double digit deficit in the 4th quarter, and one of your superstars checks out for 1 whole game, scoring 8, and then again in the 4th quarters of the following games.

Dallas averaged 94.6 PPG on the series, and outside game 5, shot a whopping 36.1% from 3-point land and 43.3% from the field. Wow, what an unstoppable offensive force.

Mia was playing solid defense but Terry was hitting some crazy 3's. Now combine that with the fact that Lebron somehow turned into a ghost equals MIA getting b***h slapped.

Lebron is obviously at higher athletic level than anyone in the league. It is also obvious that he does not work on the fundamentals/skills required to play at an elite level during the offseason. His moves that rely on athletic ability become predictable and ineffective once a defense makes its adjustments.

Complete and utter bulls**t! They shot even worse in the 4th. Excluding game 5 they shot a paltry 41.7% from the field, and a dismal 22.5% from 3-point land in the 4th quarter throughout the series.

Add game 5's 4th quarter, and those averages round out to 41.9 FG% and 30.5 3Pt%

Don't let facts get in the way of your argument, though.

even if you include game

They hit shots when they had to. I'm not talking about overall percentages or quarter percentages. When they needed to make shots they did. Percentages don't matter. Being clutch does.
