    Dirk is back in Dallas: 4 yrs 80 million dollars, nice discount given to Cuban and the boys in big D.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Knicks were apparently asked for another meeting late today w/LeBron's camp. VP and Asst. GM made the trip to Cleveland.

    Could the Knicks fit Lebron, Stoudamire, and Bosh under the same cap space? Cause otherwise I dont see LeBron fitting with the Knicks and getting them past the first round of the playoffs every year if they trade Lee and expect Stoutamire to be da man.

    They could if they do a sign-and-trade w/Lee going to Toronto. Not sure why they'd want Bosh and Stoudemire. The Knicks would be better served trading for a point guard. The Parker to Knicks rumors won't die. Knicks also sniffing around Mike Miller, although I think he'll be overpaid by another team. They'd probably have to deal Curry's $11M expiring to get a point guard.

    Also being reported that LeBron's business agent is meeting with Knicks brass in NY on Wednesday.

    As with all of these reports ... it's coming from unnamed "sources." Same as the sources who say LeBron will not make a decision until after Wednesday. I have to think if that's the case, he's leaving Cleveland. Why wait so long otherwise. I've felt all along that he was staying, but now I'm not so sure.

    I forgot about the Tony Parker rumors. Would be a nice scenario for LeBron where he wouldnt be needed to neccessarily play the point. I dunno about Stoudemire, I mean Steve Nash has such great court vision that it makes it that much easier for everyone on the court to score and has a Dantoni team ever played enough defense to make a run? I don't see NY (in the short term) as being the best option even in the same 50 mile radius, let alone the rest of the league.

    If he wants to win now then it has to be Chicago or Cleveland.
    If he is willing to give it a year then Miami is in play.
    If he is just after as many endorsement deals (and happy with making the playoffs every year) that he can get then the Knicks and Nets are factors.

    We shall see.

    I didn't know he was running a camp until Wednesday. That's why he's probably waiting to make an announcement. I think he's staying in Cleveland.

    I think if he was staying in Cleveland, he'd announce it before/during the camp. If he waits until after the camp is over, I think he is leaving.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    How about a sign and trade with San Antonio: David Lee for Tony Parker?

    Lee would give Duncan a huge boost, allowing him to play fewer minutes in the regular season. A four-headed monster of Lee, Blair, McDyess, and Duncan for two spots (along with limited Bonner minutes as a 3-point sniper from long distance) should make them tough to beat later on. Too, the Spurs have George Hill, who was ridiculously good as a PG for San Antonio.

    Or, if you're really daring, there's always a sign-and-trade with Washington for Glbert Arenas. Lee for Arenas would give NY a scorer and a PG handle to pair with James. Give the Wiz Eddie Curry, too, in order to balance salaries.

    I think he's going to announce that he's staying during the camp or just after the conclusion of the camp. Nothing like giving himself even MORE publicity to wrap up this whole ridiculous process.

    Wouldn't touch Arenas' $80M contract w/a 10-foot pole. It's that type of move that destroyed the Knicks 10-years ago. Oddly enough, it started with a max contract to a player with bad knees (Houston).

    LeBron is a joke, how he has handled this process is an even bigger joke. Congrats LeBron, you got everybody to look at you.

    Kobe was a free agent and it was NOWHERE near this big of a circus. LeBron is a big ole attention *****.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    LeBron is announcing his decision Thursday on ESPN. That makes him a joke?

    ESPN would show/announce his decision almost immediately anyway. By him inviting ESPN in, he can control the announcement more, and also extend the LBJ brand, something that is very valuable to him.

    A joke? No. Smart businessman? More likely. Let's not forget one of his good buddies is Jay-Z, perhaps the most savvy businessman in hip-hop and very intelligent man.

    Yeah I agree... Maybe Kobe can teach Lebron lessons on class and how to treat women?

    I mean considering we are judging here.

    That's not even mentioning his radio act demanding a trade and forcing teams to come to him like Lebron did in 04. Acting like Kobe has no ego is one of the funniest things I've heard recently.
