I know that the Cavs have a much different roster this year, but I'm assuming that had LeBron stayed, they would've kept their roster largely the same since they had the best record in the NBA two years in a row.
Many people look at the Cavs' drop off in wins this year and say that it is due to LeBron's greatness. However, there were actually many factors contributing to their fall from first to last in the NBA.
Since LeBron takes the ball up and plays as a point-forward, they did not include any true point guards on the roster. This caused huge problems for them after his departure.
Also, the Cavs consisted of many three-point shooters, which took pressure off LeBron when he was driving to the hoop since the opposing team's players couldn't cheat off their men at the three-point line.
While this doesn't make for a good team without LeBron or another star of his caliber (if there is one), it makes for a great team with him.
Lastly, they were hit with some pretty bad injuries. Anderson Varejao and Antawn Jamison both suffered season-ending injuries, which hurt the Cavs severely considering that they were two of the top three players in their rotation.
The Cavs are a much better team than many people give them credit for, and if LeBron had stayed with them, I could see him winning anywhere from two to four championships.
However, winning championships in Cleveland would've advanced his legacy much more than winning them anywhere else.
