    There's no spot on the floor where the Heat will have a true matchup advantage on the Lakers (unless they play Wade/Lebron/Miller as 1/2/3, in which case they'd have an advantage at PG).

    With the versatility of Barnes, and the potential of Ebanks, I wouldn't be surprised if the Lakers let Brown walk. I want him back, though.

    I just don't see how the Heat will beat that team. Too much size, too much defense, too much depth.
    Both the Lakers and Celtics looked very old and average in the Finals this year (actually throughout the entire year.) Artest isn't the defender he once was and even Kobe isn't the player he once was (even though he's arguably one of, if not THE best player in the league). The Lakers just aren't that great.

    Yep, those back to back Champions "just aren't that great."

    Drew Carey was in town with these guys talking to city counsel not too long ago. I agree with the argument that Cleveland should look at ways to lower taxes and improve the business climate, some of the suggestions were plain stupid. Let's get rid of zoning laws so that folks can put a strip club or a toxic waste dump in residential neighborhoods (nothing against strip clubs or waste dumps, but they have proper places for those away from homes and schools). And I believe Cleveland was one of the first areas to adopt school vouchers. They neglect to mention that most of Cleveland's population loss has been to the suburbs and surrounding counties where the taxes are lower. They also avoid mentioning the lower cost of living, with lower fuel costs and utility rates. Much of Cleveland's job loss has been in old-school manufacturing because companies find it cheaper to build new plants down south rather than refit and clean up old plants up here. We get left with with footing the bill for cleaning up their messes.

    The odds seem very high his story isn't going to end well. He is surrounded by people who simply wish to indulge their every whim.

    CLEVELAND -- A fan wearing a Miami Heat jersey of LeBron James drew the ire of the crowd at a Cleveland Indians game and was escorted out of the ballpark.

    Fans in the left-field bleachers chanted obscenities and pointed at the man Wednesday night during the sixth inning of the game between the Indians and New York Yankees.

    Hundreds of fans joined in before security led the man out of Progressive Field.

    As he left, some fans followed him toward the gate with more derisive chants. Various media reports indicated he was with a female companion, and that fans also threw debris at them.

    The man was shown showing off his No. 6 jersey to the crowd as he walked down the steps.

    James' recent departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Heat caused a lot of anger in the city.

    Many fans were near the left-field foul pole in hopes of catching the 600th home run ball by Alex Rodriguez.

    Re: The Lebron saga

    Miami signs Eddie House to a 2 year deal (Vet Min). Wow.


    Arroyo - Chalmers - Lebron
    Wade - House - Miller
    Lebron - Miller - Jones
    Bosh - Haslem - Howard
    Anthony - Haslem- Z

    Got some shooters...

    3PT%

    House - career .390 (has had seasons .444 and .429 etc.)
    Miller - career .405 (last season .501)
    Jones - career .395 (last season .411)
    Chalmers - career .346

    League average is about .360 I think. They aren't the GREATEST 3PT shooters ever, but they will be getting a ton of wide open shots.

    Yea my thoughts exactly. I realize that what you wear shouldn't be an issue when going to a professional event, but really dude? You got to be dumber than a box of rocks!

    The Indians should have upgraded his seats for being treated like that.

    His actions on the way out and the fact that he was escorted out instead of being moved indicate he was probably egging the crowd on to get a rise out of them. Just another tool who learned his people skills from the WWE.

    Yeah, let's wear a LBJ Heat jersey to a Cleveland sporting event. Brilliant.

    Haha, can't wait to see some idiot try this at a Browns game. He won't make it out alive.
