Default Acceptable supporting cast for LeBron

Since many people think LeBron's supporting cast is too stacked then what would be an acceptable supporting cast for LeBron in order for him to get credit from everybody?

Chalmers
Meeks
Batum
LeBron
Bosh

with a crap bench while playing in the Western Conference. If LeBron won the title in this scenario then even haters like me would give him credit assuming there are no serious injuries for other contenders.

Hes never gonna get credit from everybody.

Bill Russell has people making PER related arguments against him being his teams best player 50 years later.

Wilt has 4-5 idiots making topics on free throws he missed in 1971.

People making "If ___ had Birds team...." and "____ plus Pippen and rodman" arguments all the time.

The shit never matters to anyone but a players haters who...are going to hate no matter what. These dudes just watched Wade put up Kendall Gill off night numbers(15/5 46%) in the playoffs not having so much as a 25 point game for 3 months(March 4th to July 13th) as Bosh put up 12/7 with zero points, 7 rebounds, 3 turnovers, and 5 fouls in game 7 and came out claiming Lebron had historic help because while Lebron had a 30 point triple double in game 6 Ray Allen hit a huge shot while scoring 10ppg in the playoffs then went scoreless in game 7 as Lebron put up 37/12.

What happens on the floor does not matter. People decided to hate...they will hate no matter what. There is no....acceptable supporting cast.

Same people hating now were hating in Cleveland when he was losing with Boobie, Mo, and Sideshow Bob. That alone makes it clear that it doesnt matter.

A hater is going to hate.

LeBron doesn't need to be associating with nut-punching french niqqas.

Eh, Wade and Bosh have both been hurt over the last two postseasons (Bosh wasn't hurt last year, but was severely outplayed by Hibbert/Duncan), so I've heard everyone giving him ample credit (100% or close to it). I don't much care for him, but it is what it is.

Or with Nash, Gasol, Dwight, Metta, Jordan Hill, Earl Grant and Steve Blake.

Maybe he gets a 6 seed.

that's actually the amount of talent around him that a player like Lebron should be able to win with.

A secondary star in Bosh, a great 3rd option in Batum who plays solid defense

a spot up shooting point guard with great defense

a spot up shooting guard with average defense

They're mad players want to go there and win. Players taking min contracts to play on this team because even the big 3 have taken paycuts. Meanwhile that other guy that is getting paid 30 mil and got an extension for 24mil/year...who's taking min contracts to play with him? On that losing team where one player ballhogs and takes all the credit...turned Gasol into a quitter.
