View Full Version : Lenny Kravitz non-chalantly admits to being privy to Lebron going to Miami for a year

While being interviewed by Maria Menunos (sp?) before the all-star game, she asked who his favorite team was and he said Miami cause he is from there and friends with the owners. When asked what he thought about Lebron going there he said he had heard about it behind the scenes for the last year, but wasn't sure it would really happen and was happy when it did. Really? Heard about him going to Miami behind the scenes for a year and is good friends with the owners! If that isn't an open admission of collusion from a third party then I don't know what is. I know one could say well maybe he just meant he heard the owners talking about the possibility of Lebron coming, but that is not at all how it sounded. Just curious what people's thoughts are on this? I know Lebron is on Miami now and this subject is like beating a dead horse, but this seems to be acknowledging the rumors that there are things going on behind the scenes that are planned that have been all but speculation and are certainly against NBA rules and lead me to believe that players are actually taking more control of their future than ever before. This is why the owners are trying to get together to stop teams from becoming super powers as players collude together to join forces.

He probably heard that they wanted Lebron. These guys aren't the brightest- especially Monta Ellis.

I think a lot of people feel its obvious that it was pre-arranged.

When exactly did Lebron anounce he was going to change to number 6? ( 23 retired in Miami).

Lets not act like if they decided the thing at last minute.

To be honest, I do honestly feel that there are instances of collusion. Did it happen with LBJ and Miami? I dunno. I have a feeling like it did. I remember hearing Ariza say, when Cleveland was trying to sign him for the MLE that LBJ said he wanted him there, but wouldnt make any promises as to how long he himself would stay in CLE, which is why Ariza said he opted for another team. Did he already have it in his mind to move? Did he know where to? Only LBJ and anybody he may have spoken with know that. NY and MIA both seemed to be making moves under the assumption that they had a big free agent locked in.

This is also what happened when Shaq left Orlando for LA. Everybody seemed to know before his final season in Orlando started that he was going to LA in the offseason, and then he did.


If it is true that there are such instances of collusion, then it spoils the game. If you are playing for a team whose long term success you are not interested in, then it hurts their ability to recruit free agents, and it may impact the player's efforts on the court, most especially if they end up playing against the team that they know will be signing their pay checks next season.

There is an obvious conflict of interest. I hope this is not what happened, but I cant help feeling the way I do about it. If it was collusion, then I doubt very seriously that it was the first time, and the league, especially in Shaq's LA move, looks the other way. Its not healthy for the league, espcially when they punish other teams so harshly for instances of collusion where there was no conflict of interest (Joe Smith's minny deal cost them how many first round picks and the loss of Smith?).

Of course it was pre planned by MIA and Lebron. Not together, but I think it's naive to think that Wade wasn't relaying a few messages back and forth. But it's in the past, so people need to get over it.

in his last year at Cleveland he said that he would switch to number 6 no matter what team he was at because he thinks the NBA should retire Michael Jordan's number for all teams

Check this out.

This is old news. Anybody who is not a Heat fan will admit that there is a very good chance that something shady went on in terms on collusion.

But remember guys, you can't argue with these people. All they do is say "U Mad" and they call you a hater. Just let it go. It's like arguing with somebody who thinks OJ Simpson was not guilty.

You are entitled to your opinions, but man, don't pretend that it's not very likely that Miami and Lebron/Wade/Bosh broke some rules. We don't know, but you have to admit it's very likely.

You are so right, and I bet you get bashed on here a lot as a result. Some people want to believe what they believe and it shatters their world to even conceive of the possibility of things being different than what they've been taught to believe.

No us Heat fans all think Lebron didn't have a clue where he was going until he woke up that day....Obviously he knew where he wanted to go, just like every other FA. You people are so silly.

This is why the owners are trying to get together to stop teams from becoming super powers as players collude together to join forces.

It's not collusion if the players are free agents--they are free to decide, together or apart, where they want to play and if they want to play together. If they are good enough that the teams will grant their wishes, then hey MORE POWER TO THEM.

Actually it would be the topper if the Cleveland owner made a big deal about this and tried to sue the league or Lebron or whatever.

I guess what everybody here and elsewhere is saying, is that Lebron IS SO GOOD, Lebron is SO UNBELIEVABLY AMAZINGLY GOOD that it is literally not fair to any other team in the league--even the team he is playing and making billions for is victimized by his greatness.

Lebron is SO GOOD that a "just a taste is not enough." They loved him in Cleveland so much that when he had to leave he destroys the entire city and the team.

That's what everybody is saying. What... is the new CBA gonna contain a "Lebron rule" now or something? Lebron's just too good, you can't control that.

Lebron has too much power because he is so good.

Therefore Lebron is literally TOO GOOD FOR THE NBA!!!

There's nothing wrong w/ player collusion. Or at least it isn't punishable by the NBA. You can make your own judgement on it though. Personally, I don't think it's right, even if the NBA can't punish for it.

However, player collusion is illegal of it is being driven by a team. For instance, if Wade was relaying messages from Lebron/Bosh to Riley and vice versa, then it is punishable. Not saying that happened, just giving an example.

I can't believe serious, regular posters still hold on to stupid **** like this. If anything, the fact that he applied for a number change means he wasn't already decided about going to Miami. This has been covered a thousand times.

Think about this:

If Lebron had "too much power" because he could shape a super-team in Miami... how much power did Phil Jackson have in going to LA? That shifted the balance completely from to the West, and Lakers have won 5 titles and counting.

Coaches are free to go wherever they want if they're not under contract.

Popovich could go to NY Knicks and bring his staff with him. This would hurt San Antonio as much as Lebron leaving Cleveland. AND it would change the balance to make NYK the best East team within a season or two.

Cmon bro, you or I could have coached Kobe and Shaq in their prime to several championships.

Let me see Phil go to the Cavs or the Nets or the TWolves and win 3 titles in a row, let alone one.

Phil is a great coach, but he's only won with the two guys who are widely considered the top two players of all time(MJ and Kobe). How could you not win with those guys?
