Also funny how different reactions are in soccer when a club builds a superteam vs say the NBA for example.
It's a little different in this situation...
Lebron was the best player in the world going to a very good team, joined by a veteran talent (Wade) and a complimentary player (Bosh). Should also be noted they make up 60% of what's on the floor, not less than 10%.
Götze is a fantastic young talent, but not the best player in the world, IMO (though he was on a ton of radars this spring) going to one of the best teams in the world.
If I had to compare the move, RVP's move to the Reds is more like Lebron's, while Götze's move is more like Nash going to the Lakers (though I hope it turns out better than that!)
Nevertheless....I think it's nearly impossible to compare since the two sports are so different...good topic though...
ETA2: Nash is older, so maybe not the perfect comparison..open to other suggestions.
