I understand franchises are willing to spend the max to acquire that IT player to be the face of the team and help lead them to success, but in my mind LBJ is the only player worth max money(maybe Bosh because of his age.Arguments for Wade.) And as a Knicks fan the thought of giving Joe Johnson, Boozer...ect Max money makes me ill. Some GM's are off their rocker.

Wade is a max palyer you don't need to make any arguments about that.

Wade and Bron are the only two who have proven, without a doubt, that they're worth whatever you're allowed to pay them.

Lebron and Wade, no one else is deserving of a max, but doesn't mean they won't get it.

Well if you got the money, and need only one player, go for it. Alot of players get paid more (and sometimes less) then what they deserve, so its a team call on if they feel like that player is the missing link for them.

Dwight said he'll never leave the Magic as long as his fans in Orlando want him to stay. And with the team they've built around him, I don't blame him for wanting to stay.

Just because he won't leave doesn't mean he will not get paid

Lebron and Wade are the only players worth a max

Bosh will get one Joe Johnson probably will, Amare and Boozer most likely will....not deserving though.

I think Darko deserve one....haha

Here is how I will determine a Max Contract player....recognized as one of the best players in the league and recognized for defense...

All-NBA for this years free agents...
LBJ 1st team
Wade 1st team
Johnson 3rd team
Nowitzki 2nd team
Amare 2nd team

Now defense team
LBJ 1st team
Wade 2nd team

LBJ and Wade deserve it that is it

What ive been trying to say is its better to wait and just compete with a young mediocre team for a few years, then be 30million over the cap with a mediocre team and unmovable contracts for the next 4years. Its obvious some of you guys didnt read the article, and are just stating your opinion whos worth the Max.(Which i am well aware of)

imo, here is what the big free agents should get
LeBron, Wade-max
Bosh- 5 years, $70 million
Johnson- 5 years, $65 million
Rudy Gay- 5 years, $55 million
Ray Allen- 3 years, $27 million
Raymond Felton- 4 years, $32 million
Carlos Boozer- 5 years, $55 million
Amare Stoudemire- 5 years, $70 million
John Salmons- 4 years, $32 million

I assume Redd, Nowitizki, and Yao all activate their player options

well, I am not going into details of the contracts I stated. You can use any combination of player incentives, team options, etc. The 3rd year on Salmon's deal could be a team option, the 4th a player option. They were just ballpark figures, and I think he is worth that considering many of the deals around the NBA
