Should Philly take LeBron?
There seems to be a bit of rumour flying around that LeBron is asking questions about the Philadelphia area, e.g. for schooling.
IF he was to offer his services to the 76ers (and it's probably a big IF), would it help or hurt the 76ers?
Right now, 76ers have great chemistry and potential, Ben Simmons gets the ball in his hands a lot and is hitting triple-doubles frequently, Embiid is an All-Star, and everyone is getting lots of shots thanks to Simmons.
However, it's uncertain whether Brett Brown is a finals coach, and it's not likely that Simmons and Embiid are strong enough to take them deep into the Conference finals.
LeBron coming in would give them a decisive edge in the finals, but would take away a lot of ball from Simon and Embiid during the season and hurt their growth. I could also see a lot of stress within the team once LeBron starts trying to take control of coaching away from Brett Brown.
What do you reckon - take him or not?
