    I don't understand why anyone would watch this thing. He's not gonna reveal most likely until the last five minutes. So tune in then, who cares about the rest?

    A lot of people seem to think he'll do it within the 1st 15 minutes. Me, I'll be watching the Reds game and I'll find out in due time.

    He could do it in the first 15-20 minutes:
    Opening/Welcome (3-4 minutes)
    Commercial (4-5 minutes)
    Review of each team (6-7 minutes)
    Announcement (45 seconds)
    Video package of the "winner" to build the hype machine.

    I plan on flipping between the Reds game and this. I'm interested in seeing what they fill most of the time with, actually seeing LeBron give his thoughts on his decision and of course, hearing where he is going.

    I still don't think he'd drag this out like this to piss off his home town and to become DWade's caddy in Miami. Don't get me wrong LeBron is great but Miami will always be DWade first when it comes to bball. Why? DWade already won his ring and LeBron hasnt. Would be different if one of the previous 4 years in Cleveland LeBron had been able to win it.

    He enjoys the spotlight and being the center of attention. In Miami he would have to share that.

    If he does go to Miami I see things going poorly between Wade and James over who is "The man" and make the Shaq/Kobe stuff look tame and minus the rings and quicker.

    And don't forget he tried to get Bosh to come to Cleveland. If he goes to Miami, he's Wade's caddy and Bosh's beotch.

    Haywood to the Mavs in a 55 million dollar deal.

    The Heat had looked at Haywood hard to pair with Bosh as Bosh doesn't want to play center. The deal to the heat fell through in the last few days due to the Heat not having the cash to pay Haywood. I think this signing shows that Lebron is indeed headed to Miami. Yuck!

    Re: The Lebron saga

    A lot of Twitter-buzz that Miami may be a smokescreen and that LBJ is staying in Cleveland.

    Knicks have a sign-and-trade to send David Lee to Golden State for Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike, Ronny Turiaf and a second-round pick if LBJ doesn't go to NY.

    Knicks now setting themselves up to make a run at Chris Paul and Carmelo in 2011. And so it goes.

    Cleveland sure ain't scrambling to get anyone else to pair with James. They have been awful quiet so far this FA season.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Looks like Cleveland is making one last pitch. I think they should have started a little earlier than a few hrs before the decision.

    The Cavaliers are in trade talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves involving former Syracuse star Jonny Flynn.

    The Plain Dealer's Brian Windhorst reports that multiple league sources have confirmed the Cavs' interest in acquiring the point guard, who is represented by Leon Rose, the same agent as LeBron James, as well as James' marketing firm.
    Minnesota denies this and Kahn the GM is known to be a straight shooter on these kind of rumors.

    I've heard Dan Gilbert would spend what it takes to bring in anyone Lebron wants, but no one will do anything until Lebron decides to stay. Probably would have been able to get Bosh if Lebron had committed to the Cavs earlier, but Lebron let Bosh make the first move.
