The Chicago Bulls have reached agreement with Carlos Boozer on a five-year contract worth $80 million, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Teams are starting to pick the apples a little closer to their reach now.

<H1>Sources: LeBron leaning toward choosing Heat</H1>http://www.newsday.com/sports/basket...heat-1.2086128

After more than two years of planning and preparing, of salary dumping and cap-carving trades and wishful thinking, the Knicks may well find out that it was still not enough to land LeBron James.
According to multiple NBA sources, the two-time MVP Thursday night is expected to choose the Heat, where he would join fellow All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh
I don't really have a dog in the LeBron to Miami or Cleveland fight (mostly) but if he chooses Miami I won't think nearly as much of him, I'd be really surprised if he goes there. I still say Cleveland with Chicago still the dark horse.

"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
Figures Jim Gray would be the MC to this freak show....from one jerk to another. Perfect.
This ruse about donating money and that is why he is doing this is absurd as well. He could afford to just donate that money out of pocket. This is all about LeBron. One last shot at being the center of attention. ESPN is now TMZ.
I like this quote......"It's gotten ridiculous," Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said. "It's almost like a parody of itself, this whole situation now. Come on, an hour long? It takes 15 seconds to say I've decided to stay in Cleveland but we've got another 59 minutes and 45 seconds to, what? Promote LeBron James?
"As if we don't do that enough. Look, the guy's a great player and wherever he goes, my bet would be Cleveland, that place will be excited. But an hour-long special?"
I agree with Stan.
The Van Gundy brothers call it as they see it.
If he does choose any other team but CLE, you're going to see CLE's heart rip apart like Ralph Wiggum's did when Lisa Simpson told him she didn't like him on TV.
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5363055All indications are that LeBron James is leaning toward signing with the Miami Heat on Thursday night, according to several sources with knowledge of the situation.
Barring a late change of heart, sources say James has decided to join fellow All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form a potential NBA powerhouse.
Not a Cavs fan, in fact had been hoping for LeBron to leave cause I really don't like Cleveland but I already feel horrible for them. If he goes on TV to do it and actually leaves then wow. Hope he has more class than that.
Where is MasonBuzz?
I honestly think this is ESPN's idea more than anyone's. I think they kinda jollied him into it. Not that he's reluctant to do it but I think ESPN wanted to break the story themselves rather than relying on getting it second hand from Twitter or a press conference.
