Maybe the Lakers should trade LeBron then? =P
if they can find a team dumb enough to take him and his contract.

simple +/- doesn't tell the whole story. Lebron is against the other team's best players while he's stuck with the other Lakers. So if a team is blowing them out he will sit. Then garbage time for both sides.

That would be ridiculous
Indeed. Although, that seemed possible prior to the season. The way Sacramento is playing now (surprisingly decently), it seems less likely.

Boston gets Philly's or Sacramento's 1st round pick as long as it's not #1. When Sacramento looked to be a bottom of the barrel team, this seemed likely. But the kids in Sacramento have other ideas so they may end up being a long shot in the lottery odds for a top 3 draw. Philly, we expect to be a playoff team, so that's not a consideration.

Yeah the Kings have no incentive to tank this year since their draft pick goes to the Celtics. That Brooklyn deal that the Celtics did just keeps on giving =)

No proof as usual. Show me the proof that the other team had their worst players on the floor when lebron was on the bench

Without Draymond in there the Warriors look turrible defensively tonight, the Bucks are having a field day inside.

Bucks are a dangerous team. GSW don't seem to be trying and are getting blown out on their home floor.

Damn ... Curry is hurt again.
Looks like it was an abductor strain. This kind of injury can be lingering and he could be out for a while.

If you look at advanced +/- stats, he's a + player. He isn't as dominant as last year but the season is still young.
Where is this buried? I already posted the teams effectiveness with him on the court vs bench.

Where’s the proof that the others teams worst players are on the court when he’s on the bench? (As you said)

That stat 'normalizes' the other variables. When you look at the stat you posted, it is a one-way analysis. These factor in all the other things that are present with him on/off the court.
So if you follow the logic. One-way analysis shows he has negative +/-. But if you factor in who he plays with and who he plays against he is a + player.

You can also see his PER - another stat that tries to look at the game as a whole
