It makes sense and I have been saying this from the start...if he goes somewhere else, it will be with the Lakers. He could force Cleveland's hand and it would be a sign and trade where Andrew Bynum, filler, and some 1st round picks go to Cleveland.

1. Cleveland

4. Everyone Else

That is how I think it goes. I think LeBron would have no problem playing on a LOADED Laker team and winning title after title and then becoming the #1 attraction in an amazing city and for the NBA's #1 franchise.

There is no way he goes to the Knicks. They are horrible and he has openly mocked D'Antoni's style of basketball.

There is a thing called salary cap.

Even with a sign and trade, I can get way more than Bynum and filler.

No you can't because LeBron controls ALLLLL the cards. Bynum and picks would easily be the best package the Cavs could get under the circumstances.

Yeah because you know where he is going right?:eyebrow:

And LeBron has said he loves the system, he criticizes the players who don't commit to defense and the majority of them won't be here in 2010.

LeBron has a better chance staying Cleveland and still being the man their than going to LA and being in Kobe's shadow.

x2

If he want's an up and coming team to be the leader of its either NJ,NY or The Clippers.

Devin/Courtney/LeBron/???(Money in 2010)/Brook

In the East that's a top 4 team at least.

Toney/Wilson/LeBron/Danilo/Lee
Enough money to sign an all-star at the least

Not bad, depends on if he wants to make NY on his resume work.

Baron/Gordon/LeBron/Griffen/Kaman

Loads of talent there, past injuries of the team and bad luck might be a problem thought but he and Griffen can change that.

Don't see how he goes to LA with Kobe still there. If anything challening Kobe to be the Top Dog in LA seems mor likely.

But then you get to a point where...

1. The city/franchise wouldn't be where LeBron wants to go

2. You are gutting your current team for LeBron--so why should LeBron want to go there?

The Lakers are in a situation where they can offer a good young big and still keep a LOADED roster.

It is a possibility but.....Long shot if Bynum was to make the All-star team this year why wouldn't Cleveland want him?? A young up and coming center in return instead of nothing who else could they get in return that would be better than Andrew Bynum and maybe they could even use Farmar or Artest or Odom who knows but it is possible...


That being said NO it wont happen.

I think we have a good chance to acquire him. I mean, we did get Pau from Memphis a couple of months after Jerry West left the Grizzlies front office (but was still buddies with the Grizz Owner and Chris Wallace to pull that trade for Kwame). Kurt is Minny's head coach, former Laker assistant coach, so maybe he can assist us by convincing David Kahn to accept Odom+Artest+Bynum+ fillers for Blount.

Lebron does not hold all the cards here. Clevelands all in with Lebron its either sign him or lose him. Why would Cleveland want to accomidate Lebron if he wants to leave town. They will use his money and persue someone like Bosh and add someone else to join a superstar with the money left by Shaq and LBJ. Its more realistic to say he may join the Clippers. When have you ever seen a franchise player get a sign and trade. Teams will just use the money on someone else.

11-04-2009, 05:34 PM
I see no reason why Lebron would join a guy who has won rings already. It would have been like Shaq going to the Bulls in the mid 90's to play with MJ when Shaq himself was in his prime.

So that is not practical for someone that is at worst a top 3 player in the league. I could see him teamming up with guys like Bosh or Amare, but not anyone who is his same tier level.

Aside from the Bron to LA angle I found his what if scenario interesting but hes a moron if he believes this;

Bryant could ease into a brilliant supporting role while the Lakers continue winning titles, and, in the end, like base hits, they count how many. Not how you got them.

So GP's ring at the end of the road as a Heat is as telling as it would be if he won it in his prime? Ridiculous, this guy is a joke of an analyst

Agreed with the point your trying to make but with as many Rings as Kobe has its not about how he's won them he has already shown he can win as the main guy so all that would matter is how many he has but thats may be just my opinion. :shrug:

unless he is stupid he woudl accept lebon.

i mean


do you ever think about lakers showtime and think, j kareem was the man to magic was the man?


no you just count they won 5 titles in 8 finals.

and dont forget obes goal is to surpass MJ.

thats 3 more rings to be won.

Lebron specially if they trade bynum and not pau prettymuch ensures that 3 rings for him and maybe if koeb plays long eough it may ensure him

kobe will not allow this to happen...he ran shaq out of town...what makes you think he would want lebron coming in here and stealing his spotlight

Enough talk about Kobe running Shaq out of LA. Shaq chose his path. He could have signed for less and stayed. He could have also accepted the role as prescribed by his coach -- a multi-championship winning coach at that -- and transformed his game into something that bolstered Kobe's rising talents. Great centers do that. Dominant centers do that. Team players of every sort do that. Not Shaq. He had to go. (Only to be shown no other alternative in Miami. How ironic.)

Would Kobe be willing to take a step back? Let's think about that.

Given a trade, the first year with LeBron would be one of master and apprentice. Kobe would likely help integrate LeBron into the system. Once confidence and synergy was developed, Kobe would marvel at the flow, conserving his energy and picking his spots to help the team through difficult points in a game, if any.

The second year with LeBron would be the season of the twin masters. Kobe's skills would start to show noticable decline, but LeBron would make up for any shortfalls. Given Kobe's floor generalship, jump shot and fade away, other teams would still be hard-pressed to pick their poison against the Lakers.

By the third season, one master ascends, while the other transcends. LeBron flourishes, taking up the role as the master to his apprentices, while Kobe is exalted and immortalized at the altar of basketball deism. Like Magic and Kareem many years before them, there is no longer any lingering doubt about the product of their labor. The titles speak for themselves.


It COULD work. But it'll never happen.

DCB/LAL
11-04-2009, 06:32 PM
Kobe could take a role similiar to that on TEAM USA later in his career if he were to be given Lebron and would only allow him to play later into his career as well.

11-04-2009, 06:39 PM
Not happening.. even if LeBron wanted to go to L.A. do you think Stern would allow it.. not pubicly but behind the scenes.. the Eastern Conference has been garbage compared to the west since Jordan retired. (minus 03 Pistons ) In a few years you only have Orlando Detroit and Chicago as contenders and who wants to watch a finals where Kobe and Le'Bron go 16-0 in the playoffs? It aint happening. The league needs LeBron in the east whether it be Cleveland, New Jersey or New York

PurpleJesus

I think it would tarnish both of there careers (KB24 and LBJ23). LeBron would look desperate to win a title by joining Kobe. Kobe and LeBron would get wins and rings, but it is like WTF?

It is kind of like the Celtics. Let's put 3 of the top 15 guys in basketball on the same team. Instead though, let's put the 2 best players in the NBA on the same team.

i think Cleveland would let him leave rather than trade him cause hes the home town hero. plus if he left in FA he couldnt go to the lakers, which i think the cavs would love if he was going to leave one way or another

Mavs could offer Josh Howard or Terry plus Dampier and a 1st round pick. Dampier has a 1 million dollar buy out on his contract for next offseason which makes the Mavs a team to watch out for when free agency starts. Assuming a team would be willing to do a sign and trade with us. I think Bron stays in Cleveland but if they were going to do a sign and trade they could get a lot more than just Bynum.

Jaji
11-05-2009, 12:45 AM
I don't think a lot of you guys know what a "sign and trade deal" is. It has nothing to do with value, it has to do with getting something instead of nothing. LeBron is a FA next year and can sign anywhere he wants, leaving Cleveland with no compensation. A sign and trade is good for LeBron b/c he can sign for the maximum with Cleveland (who can offer him the most $) and still play where he wants. Its good for Cleveland b/c they get something in return instead of just watching him walk. If LeBron wanted to sign w/ the Lakers, he could work out a sign and trade deal where it would be understood at the time he puts his signature on the contract that he will be traded to LA (or whatever his team of choice is). Sign and trades usually involve less talented players but the team is willing to take a 12th man, developmental type instead of nothing. So there will be no Kobe for LeBron trades. More like LeBron for 3 scrubs at the the end of the bench.

i heard something like LeBron for Bynum, Artest, and Odom. dont think itd work financially, but if bynum keeps getting better, and with the cavs terrble center situation after this year (z retiring and shaq off the books and who knows what), bynum could be what they need.

Then you get Artest to play the 3 in LeBron's absense, and Odom to play the four

Mo Williams
Jamario Moon
Ron Artest
Lamar Odom
Andrew Bynum

that team would make the playoffs in the east.

Haha, if this happend the Lakers would be the first team to win 80 games... but it won't... no chance... only way LBJ is in LA is if he's playin for the Clips... and they'd be awesome if they got him.

Just for fun look at the lakers lineup

Fish
Kobe

Pau
Bynum
or...

Artest

Pau

heck... why not

Kobe
Artest
Bron
Pau
Bynum

Disgusting...


But I think he'll go to the Knicks.

Where the hell is Odom on the Lakers lineup? chances are Cleveland would want Bynum and a couple of scrubs/draft picks for King James... therefore the lineup would probably look like this:

PG - Fisher
SG - Kobe
SF - Lebron
PF - Odom
C - Gasol
6th - Artest

I'd rather have Odom off the bench. Haha either way it won't happen, plus I guess the Cavs would want Bynum and Artest... or Bynum and Odom plus 2 picks. Or Mbenga straight up... but thats pushing it for the Lakers.

There is a thing called salary cap.

Even with a sign and trade, I can get way more than Bynum and filler.

Though I think there is NO way this would happen... the Cavs would probably rather sign and trade Lebron for Bynum +, rather than let him walk for nothing.. (but it wont happen)

(like seriously... it wont happen)

It makes sense and I have been saying this from the start...if he goes somewhere else, it will be with the Lakers. He could force Cleveland's hand and it would be a sign and trade where Andrew Bynum, filler, and some 1st round picks go to Cleveland.

i heard lebron for bynum, artest, and odom, and to be honest, if i was the lakers i wouldnt do that. not a chance athell id do that if i were tha lakers.

if cleveland can throw in maybe varejoa and the draft rights to christian eyenga then id do it if i were LA

but seriously, Bynum is playing like a future MVP candidate. Bynum, Artest, and Odom is way way to much to give up for just one player. LA would be ruining a good thing to much. I know LeBron is prolly the best player in the league, but the cavs would be doing this to just at l,east get something for lebron and not lose him for nothing

if the lakers were to trade one package to cleveland for JUST lebron, id do a pakcage that includes Andrew Bynum, Lamar Odom, Shannon Brown,2 future 1st round picks for LeBron James

thatll be fair for the cavs for sure, especially at the rate that andrew bynum is improving

thesparky33
11-05-2009, 04:32 PM
I've learned to take Sam Smith and his predictions very lightly.

But this is very possible, but I dont think it's likely going to happen.

Only way this happens is if Cleveland trades Lebron THIS SEASON, which would only happen if Lebron tells them to trade him this season to get something out of him.

Then the next step, would be that Lebron would have to give Cleveland a list of teams he will go to, and he will have final say on any trade, because no team will give up their future for a one year rental of Lebron, since he can just leave after the season, so that is his leverage, much like KG's leverage on the Wolves in the summer of 2007 (he had an opt out clause after the season).

So in that respect, Lebron could be moved to the Lakers for Bynum plus filler like Morrison and Farmar for example (plus draft picks), which would be a horrible trade for Cleveland, but they have no choice if they are going to lose Lebron. And then in the summer, the Lakers could sign Lebron to a max deal via bird rights. It's actually scary how realistic this scenario is, but I just dont know if Lebron wants to be painted as the villain, cuz he most definitely would if he forced the Cavaliers' hand like this, but at the same time, if he wants to leave for a winning team, a trade would be his best option, cuz teams with cap space arent going to contend unless they get another star.

If you dont understand why the Cavs would trade him, read my post above yours.

Basically, if Lebron told them that he was going to leave, and then said that he would like to be traded, they would have no choice but to trade him and get whatever they can get for him. Also, they could only trade him to a team that he would agree to, since that team also has to resign him at the end of the year, so no team will trade for him unless he wants to be there. There is a lot of factors that weigh into this. Cleveland is in a lose-lose situation if Lebron wants to leave.

But I am guessing that he'll stay in Cleveland.

11-05-2009, 06:20 PM
I doubt the Lakers get Lebron, but saying they're looking for a trade, I think the Lakers have the best source of talent available for trade for a player of Lebron's talent.

Bynum - LO - Morrison seems like a pretty fair trade to me considering LO's age as well as Bynum's talent when compared to Lebron's. Sure, the Lakers would be losing much of their frontcourt talent, but Lebron can play the PF very easily, as could Artest (against smaller lineups).

It's scary to think that the Lakers wouldn't even lose their best two players in the trade, and would obtain arguably the best or second best player in the league, to be paired with the OTHER best or second best player in the league... and the trade would be more fair than any other team would be able to offer.

I'm pretty sure that we'd have to give up at least Bynum and LO to even spark the interest of Cleveland's front office. Morrison would be the best bet at the extra player added in simply because he's a SF and was considered a good player once upon a time in high school... the potential included along with Odom and Bynum's talent would probably be the best package Cleveland would get from anyone.

11-05-2009, 06:23 PM
If this trade were to happen its going to be Bynum+pick for LeBron...

plus lebron wouldnt wanna b in the Shadow of Kobe?

who wouldnt? wasnt the Redeem Team lookin up to kobe and thats way more talent under kobe's shadow than just lebron...

so could it work? Yes
will it happen? i dk..

Will kobe be welcoming? yes, because he'll win enough for himself to be happy with doing it by himself on HIS team.. so then by the time lebron wants to come, kobe would welcome it...

I honestly doubt Cleveland would take a trade like that.

It would probably have to include Bynum and Odom and either Morrison or a pick.

They don't need Farmar, they've got West and Williams.

And either way, Bynum and Odom would probably be the fairest trade offer they'd get for Lebron.

It will be an interesting angle to see if the Cavs' early struggles (and even their loss tonight against Chicago) isnt a fluke and they have a bad season and even miss the playoffs. Man, is it gonna be a rollercoaster season!

Stop thinking basketball and start thinking money. If LeBron leaves, the value of the Cleveland Cavaliers will drop by almost $200-million, and their immediate need will be to fill seats by any means necessary.

Yeah but heres the thing if Lebron were to force their hand(which he pretty much would have to for this insanely crazy idea to happen) EITHER they would take Bynum and accept the Sign and Trade and at least get a Potential All-Star or they could just lose Lebron for NOTHING so heres the thing.....

If you were Cleveland would you..

A.) Accept Lebrons demand and trade him for Bynum and other players maybe Odom or Artest

or

B.) Lose Lebron and get NOTHING in Exchange and having to start all over again hoping to get lucky in the Draft when you could of at least had a Potential All-Star Center to build around??


I mean for 1 at least the Cavs would be moving Lebron out of the Eastern Conference and to the West where they would only face him Twice. And they wouldn't face him in the Playoffs unless it was the Finals.

I mean for 1 at least the Cavs would be moving Lebron out of the Eastern Conference and to the West where they would only face him Twice. And they wouldn't face him in the Playoffs unless it was the Finals.

You could apply that logic to literally any player in the league. Why not trade him for David Lee if he decides on New York? The reality is that LeBron doesn't hold all the chips here, and even if he put that ultimatum to Cleveland, they would let him walk for nothing before taking this trade.

The Cavaliers would be SHAMED for handing the Lakers 10 more championships. Their image would never recover. Not ever. Never. This trade would be talked about 20 years from now, and the Grizzlies' Pau trade would be forgotten entirely in the face of the media ****storm that Cleveland would see. There's no way the franchise would face that kind of ridicule and just for the luxury of having a big guy who may help them win a few more games. Not once in a million times. This fantasy is just too far fetched.

Meh cant see Bron in LA, best option for Cleveland tho would be to get there hands on bynum. Realistically when Lebron gets his max contract and the salary cap goes down those other teams will have to mortgage themselves to get him, and he wont be any better off than now, therefore as expected cleveland is where he will say

Ray Allen comes off the books and he could play with Rondo, Pierce, and Garnett. He might have to take a pay cut but what about that starting 4 with Perkins???

Rondo is a better passer, rebounder, and defensive player. its not all about scoring. there equal. and back on topic, lebron would NEVER go to the lakers. thats kobe's team. lebron needs his "supporting cast" he'd never go to a team where he is only second best. he doesnt care about championships, he only cares about HIS stats and HIS money. he is the most selfish player in the game and that is why kobe will always be better than him


They are not even close to near equal.The Celtics would trade Rondo for Paul in a second. Only Celtics fan argue this, I'm a laker's fan and know that Paul is better. And Btw Rondo is not a better passer. Rebounder maybe.


And for the whole Kobe trade to work we would have to give Bynum, Odom, Morrison and Farmar and a pick prob. I mean that's not a bad trade Bynum and Odom can make the Cavs still be in the contenders race. But what if they trade Odom, Artest,Brown, and Farmar or something it doesn't have to be bynum. I kinda like our lakers the way they are without thinking about lebron, I would be happier with a PG beside Farmar for our future.

Hey maybe LBJ could be a sixer? clear a little room getting rid of Sammy D, and somehow convince someone to take Elton Brand..... nvm

11-17-2009, 11:03 AM
he will go to NY and join bosh, or wade there. bron/bosh/lee or bron/wade/lee....either way that team can win a championship with ease

I also heard that Bosh and Kidd would be willing to sign Mid level too. So the line up would be
PG-Kidd
SG-Bryant
F-Artest
F-James
C-Bosh
Odem coming off the bench

oh man.. this thread is ridiculous.
oh the once lebron hating laker fanboys are now welcoming him to play WITH a stacked team with Kobe.. I'd rather see Lebron go to a run and gun team like the suns or warriors

Cavs are going to try and resign him with as much money as possible... From there the knicks will COunter Offer that with most likely MORE money. By then there will be no chance for a trade Lebron since hes a FA. Cleveland will not try to trade him unless Lebron states something showing that he is not interested anymore in his HOMETOWN. WHich wont happen. But lets say for some reason they dont make the finals (at least) and he has time to talk about his future (cuz if he was in the finals he would have no reaosn to talk about his future just yet) and states he doesnt wanan be a cav anymore. Then Cleveland will trade for him, but not for Andrew Bynum and a few draft picks. (good trade but a better one would be with ROn Artest as well). Thats very possible. But i dont see Lebron stating so early that he doesnt wanna be a cav anymore. since its his home town. Nets Knicks Lakers and Cavs along with others will throw some money his way and hell choose between the knicks and the cavs. and my guess is the cavs since the knicks are 1-9 as of now and why try to rebuild when he has a built team around him. Also He wont go to teh lakers cuz he wants his own name not shared with Kobe. And The NEts arent going to throw him as much money cuz there going for D-wade...

So conclusion-
1) Lebrons not going to the Lakers - He wont be traded cuz either hell be in the finals with them til the end or he will never be an ***** and state i dont wanna be here. He wants to have teams fight it out til the end of a bidding war. And the Lakers wont wanna throw all that money towards just one man when they already have Kobe. Plus Lebron wont wanna share his name in LA.
2) Lebron wont be a knick- Yes more money but not as much good fame. Lebron wont save the knicks... One man cannot save this team from going 1-9 into a playoff team. and if a playoff team not a championship one. No matter how much money they throw at hiim. hell get just as much money from the Cavs, but hell have a better chance at a championship.
3) He wont go anywhere but stay in CLev- cuz no team will throw or has nough room or is THAT interested in Lebron. The good teams who have money already have a set team. and the Teams that need lebron dont have the money or things to give to him to make him wanna come. The Nets are going for Dwade so no Lebron unless a lucky toss lol
Hes stayin in CLev possibly for a billion dollars (no joke) and hes going to win many championships with them.

They should start fining sports writers for continuing to beat this dead horse over and over. It doesn't even take a reliable source anymore, you can just make up anything! Lebron is going to the Clippers so he can be in Hollywood and be Kobe's cross town rival! CLippers will trade Kaman, Gordan, and a 1st round pick. Write it up!
