View Full Version : Lebron Recruiting Ray Allen to Join Dream Team?

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News (the best hoops guy in his town) has an interesting tidbit in his column this morning.


LeBron James is calling the possible union of Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and of course, the King himself, "Dream Team."

Those were the words James used when he reached out to another free agent in the past 10 days and pitched the idea of joining them.

"He said, 'Would you be willing to take less to join Dream Team?'" the player, who did not want to be identified, told the Daily News. "He said his people were putting it together."

I've come across a source who has told me that free agent player is Ray Allen. The source tells me that Allen's preference is to remain with the Celtics, but that's predicated on Paul Pierce remaining with the team. The money is not a huge factor. Winning more championships is the most important factor.

According to the source, Allen has spoken to James and would consider joining said, "Dream Team." Along with possibly taking less money if it was the perfect opportunity.

(I'm going to assume that some, if not all the BIG 3 will take less than the max in this scenario).

One last factor the source close to Allen mentioned was that Ray's mother lives in Orlando, and he would not mind being closer to his family.

This makes a ton of sense.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo had this story weeks ago about Pat Riley's interest in Allen.

It's also, the only missing piece of the puzzle, a shooter.

Chris Mannix who covers the NBA for Sports Illustrated, made that point on my show this morning.

Really Lebron is trying to recruit someone on ****ing twitter, hahaha take a step back and realize what your saying. This is a proffesional business (at least at times) and these are multi-million dollar contracts not picking your friend for your kickball team.

I mean obviously he is going somewhere but, I feel like until you see it done I would take anything with a grain of salt. It's like eikther way some of you are setting yourself up for disaster.

I don't know where he is going but, am def. not going to get my hopes up over these writers doing exactly what they wanted by getting people to read there articles to get a little publicity by saying they have a inside source or heard there brothers mothers sisters aunt talk to a barber in queens who took a cab ride with a driver who knew a inside guy with Lebron.

Well at least the wait of disappointment for some is almost over and the day of extreme excitement is about to begin.

If this all does happen for some reason, and I truely believe it will not happen is this: LeBron will forever be known as a part of a Dream Team and not the LEADER of his team like Michael Jordan was. They could win 10 Championships but the GREATNESS that he seeks as an individual will always have that cloud hanging over it. LeBron will not join Wade and Bosh in Miami because he wants to create his own legacy like Michael Jordan.

When you think Chicago Bulls, you think Michael Jordan
When you think Miami Heat, you will think Dream Team

I can't really remember a more exciting time for a FA class and teams having enough for 2 max or at least close to obtaining.

I pretty much feel like right now with all the hype it feels like winner gets Bron and losers get whats left. When in reality with any of the guys our teams could be obtaining it should be a good thing.

Prove me wrong.

He doesn't distribute the ball well for a guard (at all), defense is average at his best, minutes down-fouls up-PPG down, doesn't rebound.

He's a nice FT shooter and an occassional 3 pt man.

06-30-2010, 04:13 PM
LeBartard, who reported the Bosh "trade" is now reporting that Lebron "definitively will NOT sign with the Heat"


So Heat fans must choose if they believe him or not.

Sounds suspect but doesn't mean it can't be true. I'd like to know if the other guys who are not the " Max contracts" only signing 1 year contracts ? I mean, doesn't everyone who joins this team with the 3 big guns believe they will win it all in the first year?

I'm a Bulls Fan and I would Love for LeBron to come to Chicago but I haven't believed one rumor that he is, he will re-sign with Cleveland and then all this talk will have been a waste of our lives. this is a way for the NBA to grab everyone in and get more interest in the game.

And by the way my sources tell me LeBron has spoken with Jordan, and Pippen and after they hit the fountain of youth they will join LeBron on the Bulls and go for another 6 titles. DREAM TEAM here we come!!

I do like how he clarified the Bosh post earlier and said it's a "principle agreement."
I've been saying all along I think an agreement is set IF Bosh chooses Miami, then the S+T is ready.

Guess what: he also attempted the lowest amount of shots per game since his rookie season.

Pretty tough for a shooter to get started when he isn't getting touches.

Fact of the matter is you're overrating his potential role on the team written about. He isn't expected to have huge games, he would be the fourth option on a stacked team. He HAS to have defenses pay attention to him, which does nothing but help the others.

Well here's what Steve Bulpett from the Boston Herald said about Doc RIvers coming back to the Celtics

"The Celtics’ key players have lobbied Rivers to stay, but it was thought he’d take the opportunity to leave if the team was about to go into a rebuilding phase.

If he’s hanging around, it likely means he has at least a fair indication that they might be, as well."

So the Ray Allen thing might not be true...

Didn't I say that he had the least attempts? Hmm... I did


Unless Ray Allen came in at vet minimum, he'd be detrimental to the Heat team-because he'd restrict even FURTHER how they could set up their bench.

You also brought up 3pt%, but failed to bring up the fact that he shot one of the highest overall FG%'s in his career...

And that's a terrible assumption. Signing a future hall of famer that is a great community guy, and probably the best fourth option in the league is a bad thing? It makes them the best four in the history of the NBA.

What, it takes away a few million that they would spend on 2 scrubs for the bench? Big detriment.

The whole bench is going to consist of vet minimum guys anyways.

With Allen at anything other than Vet minimum, they may not have the available salary to fill their bench with other vet minimums...they'll have to take younger players at minimum salary.



Ray Allen is a nice guy. He was a great basketball player and is now a good one. He should not be mistaken for an all-star player anymore or an important piece to a "dream team."

What's your point? Paying double for veteran minimum contracts is pocket change to the owners.

If you honestly think paying 2.6 instead of 1.3 for a min. guy is going to be a sticking point, you're sorely mistaken.

And I fail to see how it is a detriment other than 'the heat will have to pay more in taxes'.

You already said they will be over the soft cap regardless, so why not sign the best players possible after they get their 'big three'. The entire bench is going to be minimum contract guys anyways, so what's the difference?

Regardless, Allen is a perfect fit for this "Dream Team" if it comes to be. Wade and LeBron are far from deadly outside scorers, so when Allen is on, this team could be unstoppable. They just can't expect much from anyone but Wade come playoff time. :p

Did I not say that Allen at vet minimum is fine? I mean, you keep harping on that.


But I don't see Allen going from 16MM/year (unless I've misread his contract status-the 5 yr/80 MM extension in 04/05 is the last contract I see for him) to vet minimum.

ok, so as a fan of a team that made it quite clear they were looking towards 2010 to build a title contender and not trying to win one the past 2-3 years you're supposed to be excited about this and rush out to buy season tickets? Sure, you can go to the Heat game and watch Wade and a bunch of scrubs battle out a barely above .500 record or do one of the many things you can do in South Beach. Some may call that being a fairweather fan but just beacuse you dont attend the games doesnt mean your not a fan of the team and you dont support them outside the arena.

He won't have an individual legacy if he never wins a championship. I think LeBron would rather win multiple championships on the "dream team" rather than be on a team where he is the superstar and he doesn't win many if any championships.

This.
However, Ray Allen could potentially have one of his best seasons in his career if he were to join forces with Wade, Bosh and James. Ray Allen was the #2 option for most of the season with the C's. In this situation, he would be the #4 option, making him the best #4 in the entire league. He would get so many open looks with James and Wade slashing to the paint, and even the occasional double team on Bosh. IF this team had good ball movement, imagine swinging across the perimeter from LBJ, to Wade and then to Ray Allen for the open corner 3 pointer.

not so stupid now, huh!
I think you could say any FA wants to sign where Lebron signs.

In fact, I'd bank money that no FA is trying to avoid being on the same team as Lebron.

Mia fans dont deserve any star players. They only show up to the games when the Heat are good. The majority of them are not loyal and dont know basketball.

More than half of em on this site didnt even exist until DWade got there... No offense to the real fans of the Heat.... If we prob asked the casual Heat fan how do they feel about THE SHOT most wont even know what we are talking about...

This.
However, Ray Allen could potentially have one of his best seasons in his career if he were to join forces with Wade, Bosh and James. Ray Allen was the #2 option for most of the season with the C's. In this situation, he would be the #4 option, making him the best #4 in the entire league. He would get so many open looks with James and Wade slashing to the paint, and even the occasional double team on Bosh. IF this team had good ball movement, imagine swinging across the perimeter from LBJ, to Wade and then to Ray Allen for the open corner 3 pointer.

Been a Heat fan since we drafted Glen Rice and i have no idea what "The Shot" is. Alan Houston shot againt us? I guarantee i know whatever shot your talking about just never heard anything being referred to as "the shot"

Allen won't be the only one over the salary cap. The Heat-if they sign all 3-will be well over the cap.

They won't be over the cap. :mad: They'll be right on it. And the tax doesn't kick in until the team is over the cap by a good 15 million dollars. :facepalm:

it really want as big of a shot as knicks fans make it out to be. it wasnt a late round playoff game and they didnt win the title, so to brag about a shot in the first round of the playoffs is nothing major. But i guess when you dont win for so long you have to cling to average moments.

gotcha, kinda funny how i guessed right because i still remember how bad the shot was. Bounced on the rim like 3-4 times before going in. So dirty

i dont doubt the story, i doubt the fact that allen would sign for the minimum but according to the story he just wants to win and be near his mother so you never know. But the fact that multiple people are repoorting that lebron is recruiting people FOR the heat is pretty cool if true.

I just cant see lebron leaving cleveland for some reason.

I think it would be horrible for the NBA is Lebron and Bosh joined Wade in Miami.

Its too much talent for one team. It would be best if Bosh joined Wade in Miami...and Lebron went somewhere else.

I want to see the East become a deep league...with all the FAs going to different places.

Thats what this league needs. The dream team in Miami would disgust me.

Im not a Knicks or Nets fan...I just want to see a balanced league...thats all Im rooting for.

nobody is gonna take less money, end of story. they've all earned huge contracts.. and who is gonna be the highest paid on the heat?? why would dwayne wade take less money then lebron when he has the ring? it doesnt work like that.. bosh also is gonna get a max contract he isnt going to miami.. miami cant aford 3 max stars, the only dream team available is if the bulls get lebron/ another big name, which is actually possible since rose is already a star... and not paid yet.

LeBrosh isn't going to Miami. Bosh wants a S&T which would make him the highest paid on the team when he's the 3rd best and this whole thing is Wade's idea on Wade's team, meaning LeBron isn't the shot caller Wade is. LeBron wants the spotlight so nice try D-Wade have fun with Boozer though. You guys really think LeBron wants to join Wade who already won a ring? His legacy would be "you hadda go to Dwayne Wade to get a ring" and "you had to stack your team with 2 other superstars to win a title, but your supposed to be the best?"

of course this is made up . LAME

i heard miami is geting amare,bosh,lebron,wade,jordan,shaq,kobe and ray allen all for the MLE

I heard it was more like Wade getting max contract. LBJ, Bosh, Kobe, Amare with MLE, and the rest on Vets Minimum. But let me check my source, who is a friend of Wade's friend's cousin's wife's sister who happens to work no where near the Heat Organization.

exactly if lebron wants his own legacy and to win right now and have a chance at a dynasty he will goto the chicago bulls, if he is all about fame and not winning he will goto new york.. and if he is loyal to fans he will stay in cleveland. seeing as kobe now earned the title of best player in nba by winning rings, i see him going to chicago. just a little interesting note 1991 jordon won his first title against the lakers with magic on that team who had 5 rinsgs next season will be 20 years.. and kobe has 5 rings
bulls vs lakers anyone??

Are you LeBron? You know everything that's going through his head?

I'm not so high on this source as well, but you certainly don't know what LeBron wants or thinks. Nobody knows. Heck LeBron probably still doesn't know where he wants to go.

I still give the edge to Cleveland, but Chicago and Miami aren't that far behind.

In my opinion, I think Miami is better off with a Wade and Bosh duo, while adding 4-6 quality role players, I'm not sure the big 3 can work, but I wouldn't be disappointed if it did happen.

I'll just much rather have depth. You need bodies. LeBron/Wade/Bosh sounds nice, but can it work? What happens if one of them gets injured? 4-6 quality role players paired up with a great duo of Wade/Bosh sounds pretty good to me.

Just a different opinion, from another Heat fan..

Ray Allen would be a great shooter off the bench. He would really help spread the floor for Wade and Lebron, but I don't even believe that the "Big 3" is going to happen.

Ray Allen would be a great fit next to Wade, though. He's getting older, so maybe a move to the bench is better.
