View Full Version : Chicago Favorites To Land James?

The executive, who did not want to be identified discussing a player who is not yet a free agent, said he had gathered from discussions with his fellow N.B.A. executives that James was strongly leaning toward joining the Bulls in tandem with another free agent, Chris Bosh of the Toronto Raptors.

“I think it’s a done deal,” the executive said.

He said he thought James was going ahead with the meetings in Ohio “to be respectful to all these teams who jumped through these hoops,” a reference to the clubs, like the Knicks, who traded reasonably talented players like Jamal Crawford the last two seasons in an effort to open up as much salary-cap space as possible. But if James and Bosh are indeed going to Chicago, moves like the ones the Knicks made will have been done at least partly in vain. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/27/sports/basketball/27draft.html?adxnnl=1&ref=basketball&adxnnlx=1277644450-UN7T3CnBC8UK0Mf6K/rgFw

Yesterday when there was a report that he was leaning towards New Jersey. Its all BS right now until he actually talks to all the teams. I think he actually wants to hear what the teams have to say before making a decision which is definitely the smart thing to do.

cause he had an overrated supporting cast. a lot of old bodies on his team past their prime. i mean lebron has to shoulder some of the blame, but look at his numbers, it really wasnt his fault why they lost, plus their coach was pretty much the african american version of vinny del negro.

I really don't think there is much that they have had a chance to do. No big time player has been traded and right now a lot of teams are just sitting back and waiting to see what happens with the top free agents. Once they sign its more likely to see more players getting traded to the teams that lost out on the big name guys. So really they can't do much but I do agree with you that they need to make a big move to make him stay.

No reason for him not to, as far as I am concerned LeBron has not come out and said he was leaving. Clearly right now most signs point to him leaving but there is no point in trying to act like you know for sure what he is doing yet. Do you think LeBron would let people know where he was going? Come on now the guy has the biggest ego in basketball he has been waiting for this moment for a while now there is no way he would let anyone know of his intentions before he signs.

If Lebron and Bosh both go to the Bulls they could be a great team, but I don't think it is guaranteed. Rose, Bron and Bosh all need a lot of touches to be happy. What happens when CB4 realizes that he's not the second banana but the third! Furthermore, how are the Bulls going to resign Rose--and maintain a decent amount of depth--when he becomes a free agent, don't you think something has to give at some point?

Oh and props to D Wade to shutting down any chance of you guys getting him.

An NBA executive says the Chicago Bulls have emerged as a favorite in the free agency sweepstakes for LeBron James, along with Chris Bosh, The New York Times reported on Sunday.

The executive said he had gleaned from his discussions with other league executives that James is leaning toward joining the Bulls, along with Bosh, his teammate on the United States' gold medal-winning 2008 Olympic team. The Times reported the executive did not want to be named because he was discussing a player who was not yet a free agent.

"I think it's a done deal," the executive said, according to the report.

An NBA general manager reportedly told Jon Rothstein of MSG Network that Chris Bosh will certainly sign with the Heat as a free agent.

"This has been planned for a long time," the GM said. "Chris is going to Miami."

Another GM reportedly told The New York Times that he thinks "it's a done deal" that Bosh and LeBron James will sign with the Bulls.

You should listen to the draft day podcast with Bills Simmons and Chad Ford. Ford made a statement that numerous stories illustrate how Jordan's legacy intrigues Lebron and people who think Lebron is intimidated by Jordan's shadow really don't know Lebron.

So? LeBron will be under MJ's shadow wherever he goes. Also, Bulls fans aren't expecting him to be the next MJ or produce 6 rings. That only you guys and the media who say stuff like that. Its not true.

He will always be under MJ's shadow but not nearly as much as if he went to Chicago. lol now that's easy to say now. If LBJ was to go there and struggle in the playoffs like he did with the Cavs, the MJ comparisons will be used more than ever. Whether you want to admit it or not. The fact that Bulls fans don't think he'll be compared to MJ in Chicago is pretty ridiculous.

MJ has done so much for the city of chicago, and lebron would be expected to live up to his expectations that come along with being a great player but everyone will compare him to mj...

no its not about mj, lebron wants to win and he has to start doing it now, forget about being compared to mj its kobe, if kobe keeps winning then there nothing to compare. it will all be about mj kobe lebron who? so he knows he has to go to the team that gives his best shot at winng right from jumpstreet. as far as the people from chicago we just wanna win agin and have lebron start his own legacy try and get chicaco up there with the bostons and the L.A's of the world will prolly have to wait for the next superstar to do that the will have to hear about how he cant compare to what mj did 1990-1998 and what bron did 2010-2018....

Don't underestimate this: the media is having a huge war for attention & readers at the moment, so they need to come up with new headlines to publish throughout the day every day.

Ira Winderman included, but he has not been one of the journalists claiming he knows stuff about players, so what is your point?

"An NBA executive who wished to remain anonymous" is as shady as it gets. I can make a claim like that and say I have to protect my source, and nobody will ever find out I just made it up.

And what the hell does an NBA executive have to gain by leaking info to a journalist? He has nothing to gain and his job to lose. I am not buying any it.

And last but not least, if an NBA executive knows a certain player has a deal in place already that means he knows there has been contact between the team and the player, which is not allowed. The team and the player would be the last to want an NBA executive to know about such things, since it is the NBA executive's job to report it and punish the rule-breakers.

Like I said, it is almost a certainty that none of these reports are actually based on facts. Could they turn out to be true? Sure. But right now everything is possible and nothing is guaranteed yet.

Look at the article linked in the first post of this thread, and then look at this:

http://twitter.com/JonRothstein

Someone has to be a liar since these two reports don't go together. So is it Jonathan Abrams of the NY Times, or is it Jon Rothstein? I sure don't know.

Why would someone claim on his Twitter that he just got off the phone and has been told the info he claims was told? If it ends up different he lose face and people will rub it in.

For the record I don't know how legit either of these guys are, but I am sure you get my point here.

I am not buying anything until I hear from the players themselves, or every single media source is reporting the same thing.

Chris Bosh hasn’t decided on signing with Chicago or any other team, his agent told NBA.com on Sunday. A report out of New York said the soon-to-be Toronto free agent was leaning towards joining the Bulls, along with LeBron James.

“Completely untrue,” Bosh’s agent Henry Thomas told NBA.com via email. “He hasn’t decided anything.”

The most-heralded free agency class of all-time is headlined by James, Dwyane Wade and Bosh. Wade is also a Thomas client. Thomas also told NBA.com recently that Wade and Bosh would keep all their options open.

James has decided, according to various reports, to host potential suitors in Ohio once free agency officially opens Thursday. The six teams believed to be visiting LeBron on his turf are Cleveland, New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Dallas is trying to get into that mix, a league source told NBA.com Sunday. The Mavericks are hopelessly over the cap, but that hasn’t dampened the front office’s enthusiasm for making a pitch for the league’s most-coveted free agent.

Bosh was recently in Miami and has listed the Heat as a possible destination. Toronto general manager Bryan Colangelo has also said that the Raptors would consider a sign-and-trade with Bosh if a new deal isn’t worked out.

Which supporting cast do you think would give LeBron a better chance to win? The Knicks with Chris Bosh and bits and pieces added to their projected roster next year? Or Chicago's Derrick Rose and company?

Derrick Rose. Because, they also have Noah and they still have Deng.

What is Bosh's best option? Thunder, Heat, Cavs, Bulls, Knicks, or somewhere else?

I would say Chicago or Oklahoma City. You need a guy to defend and do the dirty work next to him. That is definitely Noah, possibly Ibaka.

That guy is a bigger homer than all of the Chicago fans on PSD!! Every single answer was pretty much I LOVE THE BULLS! He didn't even go into detail why he thinks the Bulls are better than everyone else, Then he got mad at the poor guy at the end lol.

Michael Jordan has been irrelevant for 10 years now. If LeBron goes to Chicago, we'll have to hear the media dig that guy up every single time LeBron does something special. Why would LeBron try to recreate something that has already been done while being compared to somebody every step along the way?

CHICAGO BULLS- somebody give me the bulls organization number lol. There's a way where we can get Joe johnson, Lebron James, and Chris Bosh. Listen up

1. Trade deng with a player and maybe draft picks to Atlanta hawks for joe johnson, I mean atlanta is not going to get anything if joe johnson sign with another team anyways right, then sign joe johnson to about 10 million dollars in the first year, and make where is 2nd and 3rd years gradually increase in millions of 1 to 2 milliona year in the contract.

2. Sign Chris Bosh and Lebron James with the 30 million dollars that we have in cap space.

3. The lineup would be unstopable if we were to pull this off. Derrick Rose, Joe Johnson, Lebron James, Chris Bosh, Joakim Noah. Need I say more that we will win championships just on talent level.

No, this isn't a problem at all. Luol Deng CAN'T play the 2. That much is obvious. LeBron would come here to play SF. Deng would be shipped off for whatever spare parts and picks we could get. Preferably a 3 pt shooter to come off the bench or someone to back up Noah. Preferably a pick would be thrown in as well.

Yesterday when there was a report that he was leaning towards New Jersey. Its all BS right now until he actually talks to all the teams. I think he actually wants to hear what the teams have to say before making a decision which is definitely the smart thing to do.

exactly it makes no sense to not hear from all the teams. why not? he has not decided. he has a plan for sure. but it can change.

Us Bulls fans already know that Bulls are the favorites to land LeBron. Even the Heat fans who's team has the second best shot of landing Lebron knows that the Bulls are the favorites. So this thread is quite pointless.

You couldn't make that case for any other team....

Jordan is the best player this world has ever seen. And it's yet to be seen if people can make that excuse 20 years from now, but one thing I know for sure is that LeBron will be long gone by then.

Ridiculous.. there's nothing wrong with being confident when there are several reasons to have confidence. If in the end, a sense of loyalty and earning the highest salary possible means more to Lebron than winning and 8% annual increases over 5 years (assuming a S&T is unobtainable) then so be it. Confidence doesn't mean omniscience. :rolleyes:

But after being on PSD for some time, I honestly hope he goes to Heat and they win the Finals, just to Laugh at you Arrogant Bulls Fans.

Honestly what do the Bulls have to offer that the Heat can't?

Overconfidence can lead to one appearing as if he is omniscience though. People are acting as if they know for sure he is coming to their team and have already stared proclaiming themselves as unstoppable. It's getting pretty ridiculous when the guy himself says he has no idea of where he's going.

The line on sportsbook with Lebron being at +125 2 days ago and Bosh being +300 two days ago; to both being -500 today tells you all you need to know. The secret is out. I have thought that (at least) LBJ was going to be a Bull for a while now, but this is as definitive evidence as I need to see as far as speculation goes. Moneyline's rarely fluctuate like this until a legitimate leak comes out.

Their team is going to be disgustingly good if this goes down like it looks it is; we're a week away from what is probably going to be considered the best team ever assembled (on paper) in league history.
