It would be a really good troll?

I thought the same thing. They didn't seem excited at all that they just won ththe championship. Probably because they basically knew they are a stacked roster and can't lose. 1

It's not as crazy as it sounds. Check this article out. The guy makes a pretty compelling case.

Quote:
Going to Boston would kill two birds with one stone. LeBron would be in a position to break Bill Russellís record of 10 consecutive NBA Finals appearances (he is currently at eight between Miami and Cleveland), while simultaneously removing the biggest obstacle in his path. It would be the exact opposite move that Kevin Durant made. Instead of joining a team that eliminated him and had already won a title, LeBron would be partnering with a group of young up-and-comers whom he had beaten almost single-handedly. Nike could sell it as LeBron imparting his wisdom to the next generation of players.

There would be pushback from fans and the media, but LeBron knows how quickly that can change. He was the most hated athlete in America after The Decision, and no one holds that against him anymore. Even his hometown fans in Cleveland wouldnít be that mad this time around, since heís leaving after ďwinning one for the Land.Ē American society is a prisoner of the moment. It wonít matter how LeBronís move to Boston is initially perceived if he ends up beating Golden State, arguably the most talented team of all time. It would be great for the NBA as well, since LeBron going up against the Warriors on equal terms would likely create the highest-rated Finals in the past 20 years.

The possibilities are tantalizing. Brown is 21 and Tatum is 20, and both have so much room to get better. Brown would relieve LeBron of his defensive responsibilities during the regular season, while Tatum could step up on offense when he needs a night off. They could be the Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker to LeBronís Tim Duncan, allowing him to extend his career deep into his 30s. With Stevens as its version of Gregg Popovich, Boston could be San Antonio Northeast, and the Celtics would have the flexibility to keep adding talent for years to come.

Itís obscene how many more picks the Celtics have in the pipeline. Boston has the no. 27 pick in this yearís draft, and it could have as many as four first-round picks in the 2019 draft. The most notable is the Kingsí 2019 pick, which is only protected if itís no. 1 overall. They also have a pick from the Grizzlies that is top-eight protected in 2019, top-six protected in 2020, and completely unprotected in 2021. Given how well the Celtics have drafted lately, itís not hard to see a scenario in which they add two more All-Stars over the next four years.

I'm rooting for that for the yucks alone. The look on Kyrie's face would be priceless.

The TV people mentioned similar several times so that the audience does not switch off. Old trick

The more I think about it, the best thing that could ever happen for the NBA is LeBron goes where ever the fuck, and this lineup wins the championship next season.
