GM for a Day: LeBron or D-Rose
Lets weigh the positives and negatives:
1) LeBron: Through the first seven seasons of his career, LeBron made one Finals appearance (a 4-0 sweep at the hands of the Spurs) and led the Cavaliers to a franchise record 66 wins in the 2008 season. He was also the most highly touted superstar to enter the NBA draft in the last two decades. He was the consensus #! overall pick and was thought to be the savior of a franchise, nay, a city that has endured so much hurt in their sports history.
After failing to build a contender around him through those seven seasons, LeBron chose to leave the destitute lands of Cleveland and land in Miami, to become the leader of a team that already had a champion in Dwyane Wade and a proven star big-man in Chris Bosh. James has quickly blossomed into the top overall talent in the league - and he has shown now signs of slowing down. in fact, in each season since relocating to South Beach, he has shown us just how much better he is still getting.
However, at a certain point, Lebron will choose his financial business career over risking tarnishing his image for a second time after The Decision. Will that come in the next 5 years? Will he instantly retire once (fine, IF) he has won 6 championships? Or will he play for that elusive 7th? LeBron is highly marketable, very good with the press and the most popular player on the planet. How can you go wrong?!
