As if we needed another aspect to digest in the LeBron James sweepstakes, on Friday we were hit with the "Decision Cave" in the Caribbean?
Where the hell is he, the Bermuda Triangle?
I've never made a decision in my life 1/20th of the magnitude of LeBron's third chapter, but I will be ignorant enough to say that this is beyond the normal parameters of what the average individual defines as "ridiculous."
I just don't understand how there hasn't already been a coherent, formulated plan in place, especially with everything we know at this point. We knew Chris Paul and Paul George were going to be free agents this year. We knew the Spurs and Kawhi Leonard were parting ways. We knew LeBron's next move needed to be significant enough to dethrone the unjust Warriors.
And yet, LeBron is fleeing to a cave (metaphorically speaking) in the middle of the ocean to try and figure out what's best for him.
Most minutes played (including reg season and playoffs) over the last 15 years:— Tommy Beer (@TommyBeer) June 29, 2018
1. LeBron James: 54,347
2. Joe Johnson: 44,164
3. Dirk Nowitzki: 41,961
Yes, LeBron has played at least 10,000 more minutes than every other player.
That's the equivalent of 3.5 additional seasons.
At this point, I can't help but think that nobody wants to play with LeBron. Paul George is highly considering re-signing with the Thunder, Kawhi reportedly isn't very keen on teaming up with LBJ, and Chris Paul, from what it seems, is just looking to get paid.
So that pretty much leaves just leaves the 76ers -- the little brother of the true NBA contenders trying to fit in so hard that it's cringeworthy -- and it doesn't seem like they're even being seriously considered by LeBron and Co.
SO, WHAT'S GOING ON?
LeBron should go to Philly.— FiveThirtyEight (@FiveThirtyEight) June 28, 2018
(The 76ers don’t offer LeBron the best odds of winning a title during his next contract, and they don't provide his best narrative potential. But the Sixers are the team with the best mix of both.)https://t.co/vcN3GWXDrk pic.twitter.com/V7U4MzDL3U
We don't need to keep hearing these reports that conflict one another by mere minutes. We don't need decision caves, especially because it was said LeBron would be making up his mind by the holiday.
We need hope. We need coherence. And I hope LeBron realizes that while sipping his virgin piña coladas.
