    No way Lebron heads to Miami to be second fiddle to Wade. Lebron will always be inferior to Wade in Miami because Wade did something James hasn't done, bring the first title to a team. James will always be inferior to Wade in titles. I don't think an ego driven guy like James will be able to swallow that for 5 yrs.

    I think he stays in Cleveland but only signs a short term contract with them. If he was leaving Bosh would have signed with Chicago or one of the NY area teams not Miami.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Lebron asked ESPN for the special, not the other way around. The charity part is correct though.

    Sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard that representatives for James contacted the network, proposing that James makes his announcement during the special.

    Those sources said that James' representatives requested they be allowed to sell sponsorship for the one-hour special, with the proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and that ESPN agreed to the proposal but had not been told what James has decided.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Chicago looks to be the team on the outside looking in after its all said and done. Sort of surprising considering LeBron idolized MJ, and Wade is from Chicago.

    It further ensures I won't pay a lot of attention to the NBA next season.

    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

    Kobe isn't the best player in the league. He hasn't been the best player in the league for a few seasons now. He just happens to be the best player on the best team (Don't know if that's going to be the case for next season).
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    If LeBron goes to Miami, he'll help fill up that empty bandwagon. Maybe they'll sell out a few games.

    Wade and Bosch have signed with Miami. They are recruiting James for Miami as stated in the article. I still think LeBron is all about the $$$$ and will sign with Cleveland since that's where he can make the most $$$$.

    If he's all about the money then he'll sign in Florida where there's no ST income tax.

    I agree with the poster earlier who said he'll stay in Cleveland but on a short term contract. He loves the attention so I'm sure he'd like to do this again in a few yrs

    And then he can go to the Nets when they're in Brooklyn, rather than wasting a couple years in Newark.

    Only problem with this plan is that a new CBA is in the works, and chances are he'll be leaving a lot of money on the table if he does this.

    I hope they do a 1 hour LeBron James Variety Show, with special guests like Dolly Parton, David Hasselhoff and Tim Conway. Top it off with comedy sketches by each team courting LeBron. Lebron then goes to the that puts on the best sketch.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I hope no one watches. One of those things "if a tree falls in a forest but no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?". I am annoyed and sick of this NBA free agency season.

    Awesome! Too bad Harvey Korman isn't around to start laughing uncontrollably during the LA Clippers sketch.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    LeBron is putting making Twitter even more relavant.

    Rumors today range from:
    - He's at a steakhouse in Manhattan w/D'Antoni, Walsh and Allan Houston (false)
    - He's doing his show tomorrow night from Greenwich, Conn. (rumor)
    - He's doing his show tomorrow night from Allan Houston's house in Greenwich, Conn. (rumor)

    It is funny how different this is being reported than if it had occured 10 years ago.

    I was thinking that too. The Cavs could do an homage to the Dick Van Dyke show with Varejao flopping over the ottoman.

    I think he's headed to the Browns. They need a wide-out, right?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
