    Bron can never be GOAT. Always has top guys under 30 its sad. When Bulls got Rodman he was 33-34 not PRIME 27yrs old. Pippen was a rookie n nothing yet AD was already a top3 Big. NBA is the worst and Bron ruined it. Made guys under 30 all want to join and make the league even more lopsided. Buyouts n BS. Hope the ratings keep falling n we see some all time lows

    THIS HAS ZERO CHANCE OF WORKING. Lebron can't function with a big man that hangs around the middle. He NEEDS them to kick out and shoot 3s. 1 of 2 things are going to happen....Lebron's play is going to diminish because now the middle is clogged and Lebron is basically worthless if he can't get a head of steam and bully his guy in the paint OR you're going to see Drummond get kicked out of the paint by the Lebron System and become worthless because he can't do they only things hes good at.
