Looks like ESPN BS to me, but then again there is no way the heat can improve their roster if they are paying Wade 10-15 million LBJ and Bosh have to realize that.

I don't know if James is coming back to Cleveland, but I do think he is leaving Miami.Like another poster said, going to a 3rd team makes him look even more like a front runner. I think his smartest career choice (for the LBJ Brand) is to make Cleveland a winner. That doesn't mean that his management team knows that. These guys didn't think the "Decision" was a really bad idea.

Not a different sport, or a different guy - pretty much the exact same thing.The guy basically threw everything up against the wall at that time - and still didn't connect.Someone needs to convince me why anything Chris Broussard has to say on this subject should be taken over random Cavs fan in the bar. You know, the guy that burnt the jersey but has hand job at the ready now.My 2 cents knowing absolutely nothing. First cent - Wade strikes me as a lot of things - many negative. But being stone cold dumb ain't one of them. The guy had some info before he opted out. Cent #2 - Everyone else is promising Lebron - but Riley can say "I did it" The Don is a master, a formidable foe for anyone. Against the Cavs organization it's like Sherman marching thru your local preschool.I'll also add this. I think Lebron's brand....image etc....I think Lebron learned after the laat couple years it ain't gonna change much. He's under the microscope forever, and nothing is gonna change it. And Lebron knows this. If winning doesn't cure it, nothing will. And it didn't. The years he wins - no matter where, he'll get a pass. And when he loses - no matter where, he's gonna get dumped on. So, comin back "Home" to be a "hero" for his hometown....none of that means dick. He's gotta win every GD year if he's doing what's best for his image or brand. He'll go where he feels he can do just that.Worried about going to a third team to ruin his image? How can it get worse?

peeker643 wrote:So it was Jack, Karasev and Zeller, plus a 1st round pick, to complete the deal that gives them max space.They also get back in that a Celtics $10m trade exception and a 2nd rounder somewhere that's useless.So they free up enough space to sign max player and get $10million exception that can be combined with, say, another $10million in additional players (two of Bennett/Thompson/Waiters??) to maybe make a play for a second near-max guy.They have to move quickly on that side of it though, because the C's trade exception expires in a few days.I think that's how it works. Hopefully I'm not way off.They are shoving their chips into the center of the table, I will say that. With no guarantees as to what LBJ is going to do.And they could be really screwed if things don't break their way relatively quickly.

I guess they will be screwed if LBFJ doesn't sign with them, because it's the only way that could legitimately contend for a ring as opposed to (best case scenario) taking an early playoff exit, but how much worse off are they really going to be otherwise? Hard to figure how a team would be "screwed" after losing the likes of Jack, Zeller, and Karasev.Even if they lose the LeBron sweepstakes again, I definitely think it's worth going all in.

YahooFanChicago wrote:Old board regular Eyo said on TOS that most of these big free agent deals (including Lebrons) would almost certainly be for just 2 years due to the next CBA which is scheduled for the end of the 2016 season. His logic makes complete sense and most of it is tied to an increase in TV revenue and associated increase in the Cap which will drive up salaries in 2017 and beyond.What that means is that we could potentially be looking at this Lebron drama all over again in 2 years time and that we could be leveraging our future picks, young talent and depth in order to maybe obtain a 2 year run. At which time we could be facing another decision.
