#1. I am a huge basketball fan.
#2. Having the best player in the world on the team doesn't guarantee anything (i.e.-Cleveland). I'd much rather have a great team. We have a start with Rose and Noah. Once Lebron gets there, it will be all about Lebron, and I don't like that.
#3. Anybody who says, "The fact that I spoil a lot of people with my play -- when you have a bad game here and there, when you have three bad games in a seven-year career." Really Lebron, only 3 bad games?


Yea, that's entitlement.

They have money now to sign two Max deals.
They have Eddy Curry's contract, which they can use as trade bait, as people would want his expiring and all the dough that comes with it.
They can sign someone for the MLE.
They can sign someone for the veterans minimum (T-Mac anyone...)

So they would be able to pick up Bron and Bosh. In addition to about 3 or 4 other pieces. To go along with solid players in Douglas, Gallo and Chandler.

I think that's what the thinking is...But, like I said, I'm not 100% on it. So...
Yes Curry is trade bait but that means you need to trade someone with him. No one is going to take that contract and pay for it just because. This means moving a solid piece like Galo. A team is going to want something for taking that contract. Not sure a draft pick would do as that is a lot of money. I highly doubt he gets moved as NY is just out of assets.

Bosh is leaning more right now on a sign and trade than a straight up signing. NY is drained of assets and cannot do this deal. He could still sign straight up with NY but just saying what I'm reading.

You're right about signing a MLE and a player like T-Mac for the veteran's minimum. However, that is a big drop for T-Mac money wise. 2nd, who do you sign for the MLE to back up Bosh? If there is one thing I'd put my money on this summer is that Bosh will not go to a team to play the 5.

The pieces could fall together but there is a lot scenarios that need to align for them to happen.

While I am thinking about it, the fact that Lebron played Boston like they were going to roll out the red carpet for him speaks volumes of his sense of entitlement. You are playing against not 1, not 2, but 3 HOF's with a young gun like Rondo that shines in the playoffs. And then you make a statement about 3 bad games in 7 years. That really turned me off to the "greatness" of Lebron. Kobe had to learn the same thing, hopefully Lebron does soon.

As far as the MLE, you can only use it if you are over the cap or the signing will put you over the cap.
