@samspiegs - you taking a very tunnel vision look at this scenario...[1] all teams that are winning championships have a BIG3 formation - you can verify this by looking at every team since the NBA was formed...[2] The Celtcs & Lakers in various periods of their histories had BIG4 led teams and beasted & feasted on the NBA for Championship Titles,,,[3] LBJ needed some help, since when has any superstar NBA player won a championship without all-star caliber teammates? And for much of LBJ's reign in South Beach, his all-star teammates haven't performed consistently as all-stars, leaving LBJ to do much heavy lifting...[4] if Melo7 were to join South Beach Heat, it wouldn't be a BIG4 formation >>> Wade is no longer an elite player & Bosh is a perimeter, floor spreader role player >>> essentially meaning it'll be BIG2 + 2 HAS-BEENS...[5] LBJ's legacy wouldn't take a hit, the guy is the best in the game and has been for some time now. LBJ's stats are incredible and there's only a few handful of players that are on or above his level - hence he's a bonafide Top10 all-time player with about 4-5yrs of ELITE basketball ahead of him...instead of tirelessly finding ways to mischaracterize LBJ's career, y'all sports guys should be writing about how he's been a beast since entering the NBA fresh out of high school with the most ridiculous of expectations!!!
