07-28-2009, 01:33 AM
Not gonna happen. He makes more if he waits.

07-28-2009, 01:42 AM

He should wait til the seasons over so management can continue to be on their heels and continue to add more pieces to the team.

If he signs an extension now they won't be as aggressive signing players cause they can have that "We'll be better next year" mentality.

I thought lebron said no to an extension already?

I highly doubt he leaves the Cavs becuase there's only gonna be a few teams that have significant dollars to spend and those particular teams dont have much talent wise to surround him with and I doubt he wants to go through a few lean yrs when he can contend now. Leaving for greener pastures sounded more attractive when there was the possibility of adding a second superstar, but with the shrinking cap that isnt gonna happen.

I bet 90% of the big names stay with there current teams.Ginobili, Amare and Joe Johnson will probably be the main guys who could make a switch but guys like D Wade, Paul Pierce, Dirk and LBJ will stay put.

Some other guys like Shaq, J Oneil and could move but are not what they once were and their signing's would be ho hum.

Superstars want to be know for being a post season giant and leading their team to multiple championship trophies and mvp awards and have their names mentioned with the greats of alltime and bailing to a lesser team will certainly derail those dreams for a few yrs until the new team is rebuilt doesnt make to much sense to me. Especially if the star is in his prime and scoring titles and allstar appearances will only suppress their appetite for more only so long.

He's not going to sign an extension. Lebron knows he will make more money if he tests free agency

He won't sign an extension. No reason for him to at all.

07-28-2009, 12:02 PM
this isnt really news, of course the cavs are going to offer him the extension just like miami did to wade, but both of those players have made it clear they are not going to take it and want to test the 2010 market.

Yeah good luck with that, that ego prick will end up in NY-Nets...

Let me preface by saying I don't think there's any chance he signs an extension . . .

What you wrote is not necessarily true. With the cap likely to fall next season and even the season after, signing a two- or three- (as here) year extension might be the best decision financially. That would allow LeBron (or Melo, Wade, etc). to hit FA AFTER the cap rises. In other words, the max contract LeBron could garner could be substantially larger in three years than after this year. And it's not like the extension would be for pennies.

He'll still most likely hit FA after this year.

Not gonna happen. He makes more if he waits.

How? If the salary cap drops again next year (which it's projected to do so) then LeBron will make less money if he waits until next year to either re-up with CLE or become a FA because the max contract $ will drop as well.

But I still don't believe he will sign an extension this year.

07-28-2009, 12:24 PM
I doubt he signs it
