Last ditch attempt by Cleveland?

I think lbj wants the South Beach lifestyle more than anything. and the no state income tax on ALL his income, not just salary.

Now thats why Minnesota was talking with Luke Ridnour.

David Kahn is trying to become the worst GM in sports history. I think he used NBA2K10 to manage his actual team.

You realize that Flynn is a very good point guard, right? And don't act like you have a clue as to what is going through James' mind, because you don't.

do you really think if lebron has already made up his mind that jonny flynn is going to make him change his mind? jonny flynn or wade and bosh, that is a tough one.

Their looking toward the future.
Every team on the rebuild should either build around a big or a PG that's the way the NBA is now.
I think this is more of a sign that Lebron is not coming back.
You really think Flynn and Mo Will can start a backcourt? expect Mo will to be out too if they get flynn.

Seems like a last effort to sway Lebron's decision on staying. I still think they need to somehow make a blockbuster move if they want him to stay. But im not sure they have any pieces of worth

Well this about settles it... playing with Flynn (SAME AGENT) is way more attractive then playing with Wade and Bosh or Boozer, Rose and Noah. LBJ back to the Cavs.

LOl... or maybe not.

Like he said, Johnny Fething flynn (who I like btw) isn't going to be the deciding factor for Lebron to stay.

To think so is extremely ********.

If they fail to trade for Johnny Flynn then LeBron James goes to Miami. Or if Cleveland makes a hung trade to land Chris Paul.

This whole thing is a joke. Go to Miami and be a Wade's sidekick. Cause your not good enough to stand alone as a real man would. All this talk about it is his decision. News flash, When he said Loyalty commitment and Family. He made his commitment. But he still show his words are worthless.

not really. jonny flynn adds nothing to the cavs to make them more appealing. what weakness does he fill? hes like mo williams without a jumper.

if anything this is contingency for when he leaves.

lebron hasn't choose the heat yet people. These so called sources are bull. He himself and maybe 1 or 2 other people know where he is going if he even does. Flynn is a upgrade over mo williams and it prob isn't enough to change his mind but what proof is there that he is even heading to miami. Chris brooussard he has been wrong about everything he said until he announced wade and bosh were signing in miami.

The most likely trade scenario would be Jonny Flynn for Mo Williams and Danny Green.

i would not be surprised if these "sources" are all saying the heat just so it makes it THAT much more surprising and amazing when he chooses the knicks or the cavs

I hope so it would suck to see those 3 on the same team good or bad they need to be playing against each other not together. I love lebron but if he goes to miami i hope he blows his knee first game along with Chris Diva Bosh.

Now thats why Minnesota was talking with Luke Ridnour.

David Kahn is trying to become the worst GM in sports history. I think he used NBA2K10 to manage his actual team.

he's got a long way to go with Larry Riley/Rob Rowell of GS still working

You rip the Wolves for looking into (not even signing) Ridnour. Then Wolves fans explain to you something behind the scenes must be going on because we don't need another PG. Then something behind the scenes comes out and you look at it like "now that's why they were talking with Ridnour." Then you say we have the worst GM in basketball.

You dont' even look objectively towards the Wolves. Hell, we could make the most lop-sided trade in the world and you'd rip us.

You missed the point entirely. Lebron does not need to play for the heat to visit south beach or anywhere else.

At this point I don't care anymore. When lebron costs the Cavs chances to improve last season the writing was on the wall.

Cavs trying to rebuild and Flynn wouldn't be a bad guy to have for that, just don't see why the T-Wolves would do it guess we have no idea who it would be, I just don't see anyone on that team really enticing them unless it was JJ Hickson who they don't really need. Could be the T-Wolves making a splash for Mo Williams while Cavs look to rebuild with Flynn.

I know that. YOU could even visit south beach. But this isn't about visiting south beach, it's about moving there and living the lifestyle. living in south beach is different than living in Akron, no? and the difference in taxes is substantial.

Lebron could already have informed the Cavs that he is leaving, prompting them to start the rebuilding process.

Flynn is represented by the Lebron people. This could be sort of a "goodbye gift" to help Cleveland start over.

Then again they might just think he is a nice player to have, which he is, and that it would improve their team anyway, Lebron on it or not.

lebron's peeps don't "own" flynn. and they can't "gift" him to CLE. It's still a league with rules and teams acting in their own best interest. CLE is probably so desperate that they are willing to make an unbalanced trade to try to land JF in the hopes that it might make Bron change his mind.

Really though? He wants to replace Flynn with Ridnour? He must really think Rubio is going to be a T'Wolves franchise player. I wouldn't look to trade Flynn just yet.

Cleveland is looking at Flynn because Mo Williams is not a good enough PG to play Scott's running offense that he wants to play. Whether Lebron stays or goes the team still needs a PG that can run. Flynn fits that mold better then Williams.

Iím not a cavs fan but LBJ is doing the cavs wrong! They did all they could to put a team around him to win it all! This was the second year they had the best record and didnít make the finals! He is the one that didnít show up in the playoffs, now he messed around until the top free agents have committed to other teams leaving the cavs with nothing but hope to work with! He should have sign a long time ago and gotten other players to join him in clev

You guys just see that the title has timberwolves in it and assume the Wolves traded Jefferson for cap room or Flynn for a 2nd round pick.

How about you guys grow a pair and actually look at the details of the trade before you rip the Wolves.
