That’s what a Godfather offer is.

The last time the Cavs tried the tank to win strategy we ended up with Kyrie/Dion/Bennett/Wiggins. I’d rather pair Kawhi with Bron for the next 5 years. Add a top 3 protection on the 2027 if it makes you feel better
I mean...saying that we tried it once and ended up with those players so when we try it again 10 years later it will work out the same, is kind of silly.

I'm all for milking the LeBron era but not if it means this team will have zero hope until 2030 after LeBron retires.

See that is the thing, I am not giving up 3 picks in a row like the Nets, that was their downfall.

2019: Bron 34, Kawhi 27
2020: Bron 35, Kawhi 28
2021: Bron 36, Kawhi 29
2022: Bron 37, Kawhi 30
2023: Bron 38, Kawhi 31 (Pick goes to SAS)
2024: Bron retires after 20th year, Kawhi 32 (Cavs trade Kawhi and tank)
2025: Pick goes to SAS, Cavs have a pick from Kawhi trade
2026: Cavs have their pick
2027: Cavs pick to SAS, Cavs have a pick from Kawhi trade

Now what do you think? Basically you win 2-3 more titles, and then have a few lean years form 2024-2027. So what?

Doubt that'd be enough to win us 2-3 titles, but if you guaranteed it was, of course I'd do it.

Yeah, not sacrifice the future to go to the ECF/Finals and get mopped the next few years.
Future will suck regardless. Look at the Bucks post-Kareem. Celtics post-Bird to big 3 (15 years), Bulls post-MJ, Knicks post-Ewing. The Lakers now.

Get it while you have the GOAT
