He's on the bad side of 30 - no thanks.
So is Durant, would you tell him no if he wanted to come here?

I don't think LeBron is close to being done physically, I just don't think he's as tuned in mentally at this point in his career and he's not going to play 35mpg for 80 games to drag a team to 45 wins.

James (34 years old)
46,235 Regular Season Minutes
10,049 Postseason Minutes
56,284 Total Minutes

Durant (30 years old)
31,305 Regular Season Minutes
5,586 Postseason Minutes
36,891 Total Minutes

If Durant plays 20,000 minutes over the next four years, probably not.

He's already #1 in postseason minutes played. He's #17 in regular season minutes and will be in the top 10 by the end of next season. That's a lot of wear and tear.

His level of play is going to continue to decline. I'm not saying it's going to fall off a cliff any time soon, but eventually it will.

"Continue to decline"....except it hasn't started yet. He's got another 2-3 years at his current level, then you might start to see some slippage.

Aside from that, I keep thinking about a PF who could fit and I hate myself for thinking this but a guy like M****s M****s would be a solid addition.

I would be concerned about Morris due to character and chemistry issues. But I do agree that playstyle wise, a player like that would be a good fit.

I give it a 75% chance this pick gets packaged for a starting PG or PF.
