In one sense it makes total sense that LeBron James would want a max deal, after all, he is the greatest basketball player on the planet. On the other hand it would seem to make more sense that he would be content with a smaller deal to have a better team — hypothetically.
Last I checked there is no one who believes that LeBron isn’t the best player in the world (or at least anyone who has a pulse) so it only seems right that he would get a max deal. When you truly look at it there are many ways to take this. The first thought is the fact that everyone seems to be talking about the simple fact that he wants a max deal. It is easy for the rest of the world to say that LeBron should be fine with a smaller contract because “he gets so much money in other platforms.” At first glance this is true and seems to make sense, but here is one thought to wrestle with – the rest of the world isn’t LeBron James.
