    Re: The Lebron saga

    For those unfamiliar with William Wesley, here is probably the most in-depth anybody has gotten:

    I don't really know all too much about him, I would guess you UK guys probably know more. I don't really buy the rumors that he is basically a super-powerful drug-dealer/pimp/bookie to the stars, but without any definitive word on what he actually does, that speculation will continue. I'd guess he's more of a PR guru, a 'master of discretion,' but that's pure speculation as well.

    That's probably the same thing Memphis fans told themselves too.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Cal was at Memphis for 9 years.

    True, but it took him 6 years to get rid of the stench of NBA failure and being king of the NIT.

    The more I think about it the more I think the way Cleveland lost may end up being being a blessing in disguise. Lets say that Cleveland went to the NBA Finals and lost in a 6 game series. The next day, or very shortly after that, LeBron would be a free agent. Now the way it stands he isn't a free agent for another couple of weeks. This loss won't be front and center in either LeBron's or the Cavs mind. No snap decisions would have been made and I think it will end well for Cavs fans.

    And they were awful for most of those nine years. It wasn't until the "one-and-done" rule that he started seeing success nationally.

    I can't help but think that Cal would at least listen to an offer to coach James in the league. Honestly, he'd be foolish not to.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    He's going to my Lakers, Kobe and Lebron together, WOW, just think of the championships. Both players have huge egos but i think if they think of how many rings they could win together they would accept any role. It would have to be a sign and trade, Lebron for Bynum and Sasha(expiring contract). Mitch get this done.

    Starting Line Up

    Gasol
    Lamar
    Lebron
    Kobe
    PG: Doesnt matter

    This is why theres been rumors that he and Bosh may work together and be a package deal. Give James the big man he's lacked in Cleveland.

    Not even a slight chance of that happening. Both want to be the 'man' not the sidekick.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Already The Most Important Non-Trade In History?

    While the Amare Stoudemire to Cleveland trade talks will not become a tale of larger than life mythology, it is already perhaps the most meaningful non-deal in NBA history.

    Looks like Mike Brown still has a job, for now...

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5189101

    Even if LeBron is allowed to hand-pick his own coach, I would imagine the damage by Cleveland has already been done. They have showed an unwillingness to surround him with the talent needed to be an NBA championship team, namely Amare Stoudemire.

    Hope Cav fans like seeing JJ Hickson billboards all around downtown. He may have ultimately been what would have kept LeBron.

    I ultimately think the Nets make more sense than the Knicks. They are likely moving to Brooklyn and will have probably no worse than a top three pick (Wall, Turner, Cousins?). In addition, they have enough money and cap space to sign another high profile FA (Bosh?).

    As for the coaching search (for whoever not named the Knicks lands LeBron), I would add another coach to consider is Phil Jackson, who's contract is up with the Lakers after this season. He's worked his magic with Jordan and Kobe, and the triangle offense would likely benefit LeBron.
