Colin Cowherd clearly needed something to talk about, so he reached way down to spew this nonsense.
On Monday’s edition of his radio show, Cowherd brought up a hypothetical situation on if LeBron had joined the Golden State Warriors in 2016, won a few titles and NBA Finals MVPs, he would’ve never left the team in free agency.
His reason for saying that: Because James has “too great a sense of himself and too great a sense of history in the league” to leave the Warriors.
Cowherd is neglecting one big point here: James would’ve never signed with a 73-9 team that eliminated his team the month prior to begin with. LeBron joining the Miami Heat often gets compared as the same as what Kevin Durant did, but it is nowhere near as close as people like to think.
The Miami Heat weren’t a threat in the Eastern Conference before LeBron and were a bottom tier team before his arrival. If Bron had not signed with them, the duo of Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade could’ve made minimal noise, but their talent wasn’t getting them over the hump without The King joining them.
The Golden State Warriors had already won without Kevin Durant, and despite losing this past season to the Toronto Raptors, no one actually thinks the Warriors are going to fall off a cliff without KD on the team anymore.
