How many times do we have to go over this?
Three superstars in their prime deciding to go to the same team as free agents isn't the same as older players joining up to get a ring. Houston isn't the same, Malone and Payton in LA isn't the same, Boston's Big 3 happened through management, etc. I'm one of the bigger Lebron fans on here and I'm not trying to change that story.
With that in mind... do I care at all? NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST. It NEVER made sense to me that people criticized Miami for not "doing it the right way". Three elite players taking their careers into their own hands? Good. Now I don't have to watch Lebron suffer with a team that wouldn't ever win a title in Cleveland. Now we get Miami vs. Indy in the ECF. Now we got Miami vs OKC and SAS in the Finals. Countless highlights and great moments, I'm not complaining... the league isn't complaining.. and fans shouldn't
History isn't wrong... other than a few exceptions, you've needed multiple great players to win a championship. Maybe if Lebron would have stuck it out in Cleveland, he could have won... or he would have suffered with countless years without a proper sidekick/great teammate. But I'll never criticize or fault Miami for saying "Let's just join up" Want to win? Take a little less money, have your stats dip a little bit, share the ball more.. and you will. Because if Lebron and Amare joined up in NY? I'd be thrilled. If Lebron went to Chi? Fans there would be thrilled. If this happened to anyone's team, they wouldn't be complaining.
