Who gets the "LeBron Treatment" CP3 or Dwight? (OFFICIAL THREAD)

Okaaaaaaay it's now official with CP3, next up is Dwight since LA has made it clear they are cleaning out the house. Throughout this whole ordeal, I would like to know who gets the "LeBron Treatment" amongst the 2 players?

I really don't condone this at all, but everyone loved it when Boston and New York did it now LA, why not when Miami took heed?

Elite guys in the NBA are h*es (Boston, Miami, New York, LA)!!! Since when do you have to link up with 2 other Elite guys to get a ring. The NBA ain't back, this sh*t is wack!!! Bird would have never teammed up with Magic & Mike would have never teammed up with Ewing, PROVEN FACT! Our professional sports generation is f*cked up now.

i think having those 4 super

i think having those 4 super teams competing is going to be pretty fun. Larry Bird, Magic and MJ were all part of their own super teams of their era so im perfectly happy with this new generation

I know life is not fair, but

I know life is not fair, but I damn sure don't think it is fair for a guy like DRose who only has 1 "Elite" guy in Boozer coming out the East. It's not like Rose said hey Booz come team up with me & Elite guy #1 and #2.

No they wouldnt because they

No they wouldnt because they already had elite teams. How can be mad at chris paul that francise wasnt going no where. And also magic won a ring his rookie year and it only took bird 3 years paul been in the league for 6 years and the longest he went was the semi

Maybe because LeBron left a championship-contending team?

The 2009-2010 Cavaliers won more games than the 2010-2011 Heat.

The Hornets, Nuggets, Suns, Timberwolves and Supersonics really didn't have a positive outlook at the time of their trades. The Cavs did, and LeBron's (very public) decision crippled them. Besides, none of those other players were wildly considered the best in the NBA like he was.

Nobody here is going to get the "LeBron treatment".

I don't think any of them

I don't think any of them gets the "LeBron treatment" because they're not the best player in the league and two time back to back MVP. They didn't lead their teams to the NBA's best record two years in a row. They didn't announce their decision on national tv. They didn't have a celebration on tv declaring victory over the entire league.

I think its because it was

I think its because it was lebron. Lebron is held to a different set of standards from the rest of the stars in the nba as hes supposed to be the next jordan after kobe and the best player in the nba along with being the most hated and polarizing player in the league. The decision didnt help either but guarantee if it was like kevin durant instead of lebron going to the heat, no way it wouldve been that big of a controversy but more like the celtics and the knicks. Even now i think we all perceive the heat different from the rest of the super teams just because the heat have lebron the biggest star in the nba

big difference in the nba

big difference in the nba from the past to today. So much more money involved and the players are more business savvy. They dont get all caught up in being about 1 team their whole career. They have agents and friends around the league and everyone talks and they jump at the opportunity to get together and go for rings. They dont get all loyal just cause a team drafted them. These guys aren't enemies, i mean they play damn near year round together and have each other on speed dial.

Besides, blame the media as well as the legends of the game as well. Guys like magic and bird and jordan have no problems criticizing todays players for not having rings and nobody gives anyone credit unless they win rings and some of these greats of today just get stuck on sorry teams, something magic, jordan and bird didnt really have to put up with much.

Dwight is the best Center in the game right now! He is the next big thing since Shaq.
