So it is pretty clear that Lebron James is putting pressure on Miami to significantly upgrade their roster. But, if he were to look north, he would find a division rival that has much of that upgrade existing. Pairing the best basketball player in this era with the best emerging future backcourt makes so much sense.
Yes the probability is low. But making a pitch and being rejected doesn't put us any worse than before. When the best player becomes available, as JW states... why not our time, right now?
