You can believe he isn't a fit for the Spurs, I think the Spurs have proven to take the talent they have and maximize it. I think he would do very well, probably score less overall but have more assists per game. I think he might even average a triple double under Popovich.

The Spurs have been doing this for a long time.

I do not dislike Lebron. I have no issue with him. I just do not see him as a fit for the Spurs. The 04-05 season is when SAS changed their
philosophy, 9 years ago.

Yeah everyone seems to forget MJ couldn't even get to the finals until the pistons and celtics all got old and he got pippen.

Or how about when Jordan retired the 1st time and the bulls still almost won the east. Pippin almost won league MVP. The cavs when lebron left became the worst team in the league. The current heat team without lebron would lose 1st rd of the playoffs IMO.
Mj was lucky to be drafted to Chicago. Lebron was unfortunate to be drafted to Cleveland

Why? The idea that he wouldn't accept less minutes is weak when it will obviously extend his career, and he's a great passer who's more than willing to do so.

I have stated my reasons, more that just less minutes. It is my opinion, I don't see him as a fit, and I doubt we will ever find out. You don't agree with me, thats fine.

You do know that MJ won his first title after beating the "old" pistons he played Magic, Worthy, Perkins.... then he beat the Ewing led Knicks, Price, Daugherty, Harper Cavs to faced Clyde the Glide....Then he beat a loaded Barkely Suns team....Stockton to Malone...

James took less money to go to the Heat and Jordan did not opt out and take less money, he was paid 30 and 33 million a year when the NBC TV contract was renegotiated in '94 and gave teams the money to hand out huge contracts. Jordan was the highest paid or 2nd highest paid player for most of his 8 year contract before breaking the bank, James just barely made the top 10 and was tied with Bosh on his own team last year.
