Shaq: LeBron James shouldn't chase championships anymore

He can drill off-the-bounce threes at a high level, run uber-efficient pick-and-rolls, isolate, stretch the floor, and defend better than he gets credit for. He has to let the Cavaliers know by June 29 whether or not he will opt out of the a year ago of his contract.

"Last summer they could have acquired Paul George and I think Paul George wanted to know, well, if LeBron commits to some years going forward, then 'I might be willing to commit.' And when LeBron wasn't willing to commit to an extension that told me they could have had Paul George and they could have done that without losing Kyrie".

There is no doubt that James' uncertain future has an impact on what the Cavs want to do in terms of potential trades, free agency, and the draft.

Shaq says that LeBron's legacy is set whether he adds any more titles or not.

LeBron James will be the talk of the National Basketball Association offseason, as the star forward is eligible to opt out of his current contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers and become a free agent.

Lebron James's choice to leave the Cavs in 2010 to pursue a career with the Heat led to his earning two back-to-back championship rings.

However, against the run of play in the 23rd minute, Iceland pushed forward through Birkir Bjarnason and Aron Gunnarsson . For example, guys from bigger countries may have better footballers, from better teams who are playing in better leagues.

With all the moving Shaq did late into his career, O'Neal's opinion on the matter is more valuable than most. "You can add index pages toward the end, but your book is already set", he began. "So LeBron's book is already set He done already passed up legends; he done already made his mark - he has three rings". His mentality now is probably is: 'I want to get four before Steph [Curry] does.' That's probably his mentality now.

While this year's free agent class has quite a few notable players in it, much of the hype has been placed on James and George possibly teaming up in free agency this summer. That's probably his mentality now.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts against the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on June 8, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. "Even with LeBron [on a roster], if you don't play the right way, it doesn't matter". It's just something else to talk about, something else to add to the pages.
