    Re: The Lebron saga

    Just think how easy it was for Boston to pick up quality players on the cheap. It's going to be 10x easier w/ Lebron, Wade, and Bosh.

    Also remember they have quite a few decent 2nd Rd picks that will be able to play quality minutes (Pittman/Varnado/Butler).

    They can probably pick up some guys like Eddie House, Earl Watson, Raja Bell, etc.

    You can find guys that have some skills but finding those guys who will be happy to defend, rebound and set screens may not be as easy as most people think.

    You're forgetting how much superstar players make their teammates better. Even if they can't defend, Lebron or Wade will be right behind the player blocking their open lay up off the backboard.

    I think this is awesome.

    Maybe they can get Shaq to take the mid-level exception.

    They were under the cap, so they don't get the mid level this year. But maybe Zo will come out of retirement and sign for the minimum?

    I think it would be a possibility. They signed Rudy Gay to a max contract and added Xavier Henry in addition to OJ and Mike Conley. They are loaded at the guard position and wings. They need somebody to mesh with Marc Gasol on the inside.

    I'm waiting for somebody to throw out a Mario Chalmers/Rajon Rondo comparison.

    Part of me thinks they should trade Beasley, but he's also a very versatile player and could be a valuable piece if they can swing some other cheap value contracts.

    I'm not a Cleveland sports fan by any means. Generally speaking, I root for all Cleveland teams to fail miserably.

    But to go on national TV and drag that whole process out the way he did, and then rip the heart out of all of the fans of the Cavs... WOW. Glad I'm not a Cavs fan.

    A court jester that put himself in a great situation to win multiple championships. The Heat have 2 of the top 4 or 5 players in the league now.

    Rony Seikaly's available.

    Celtics sign Jermaine O'Neal
    He'll improve their interior defense. That, more than anything, was the determining factor in the finals loss to LA.

    David Lee has agreed to a six-year, $80 million deal with the Warriors via a sign-and-trade, according to multiple sources.

    The Knicks are will receive Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike back in return.

    Golden State and New York had worked on the framework of a deal during the day on Thursday that was contingent on the decision of LeBron James.

    Good trade for the Knicks.

    A rare feat, lately.

    Unless these guys are really taking a lot less than the max (which I doubt) they have to trade Beasley.
