Houston still has to finalize the trade of Asik and Lin. I would expect that to be done by tomorrow and then Houston will sign Bosh. Then they will wait until the last second to match the Parsons deal.

Lebron is still a sell out. Now that he has two rings under his belt, he feels more comfortable going back to Cleveland. If he didn't win a ring in Miami, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't go back

Confusious
07-11-2014, 12:42 PM
When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasnít had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But whatís most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio.

Who the **** can't love this man? Besides the Heat fanboys? Go cry about it.

This is not as easy a route as the 2010 decision and if he wins one in Cleveland he'll make up for the decision in 2010... To most if not all... good move by Bron and happy for Cleveland go make history.

ps thanks you *** hole napier sucks :mad: lol

Because he's getting traded. LeBron isn't stupid. He evaluated everything and with Cleveland going after Love contingent that James signs with Cleveland, that just means Wiggins is gone.

Wiggins, from all accounts, isn't going anywhere. Too much potential, and on top of that, being mentored by James gives him a great start.

I honestly see Love going to Chicago if they can't get Melo.

great letter, problem is this has been lebron's plan from the beginning of leaving to miami. the NBA told lebron, leave cleveland, will give you the team you need, give you 3 1st overall picks in the next 5 years each with a 1% chance of obtaining the pick EACH year, and build the team you need... Kyrie Irving suddenly went out in the second half of the 2013-14 season with a "bruised left calf"? WTF? really? People really bought that? wow. Johnny manziel falling to the 22nd pick in the NFL draft? ********. ********. ********. ********. NBA and NFL work together and if it isn't obvious to every fan across the nation this was the plan for a long time now, Lebron signed Manziel to the "Money Team" before manziel was done with college! cmon now.. that's such ********. I love lebron, I think he is the best player in the world and arguably the best athlete ever.. but this is just too much. "return of the king" for the NBA is going to draw SO much media publicity its absurdly great for the NBA. I hate the fact that the NBA is rigged in these ways, but its just the way the world works. I personally know LeBron's wife's brother, Matthew Brinson, he kept his mouth shut but every time we hung out playing cards, he had a grin on his face whenever we talked about LeBron returning, LeBron has been planning to return for the longest time, regardless if Miami won the championship this year or not.. For people who have never been to Cleveland or for that matter Ohio, it is the most boring place you ever will be and will make you consider reading books for fun on a summer day. Maybe the fact that the Heat organization knew LeBron was returning back to Cleveland unmotivated them to even try their hardest this year who knows.. What we do know is the fact this is total ********. As a Wizards fan, I can't help but rant about how messed up it is that the NBA rigs the draft just so Lebron will return. Great job NBA of covering up the fact the NBA is rigged in these ways, bravo. Problem is I see right through you guys. Good luck to Cleveland, not that you really need it since somehow back to back years the Cavaliers have somehow received the 1st overall pick each year with a 1% chance.

You'd think the cavs now have enough assets to make a big move without giving up Wiggins. l'd give all three next year + whatever else they've got to see if that could land Love. He only has one year left, so the Wolves will have to get a better deal or lose him for nothing. They should do everything they can to keep wiggins and try to acquire another player.

The cavs just became everyone's team on 2K15

Houston is loving this, and as a Wolves fan, this most likely does nothing but secure Wiggins and change for my team in a Love trade.

Good day!

People don't want to accept this.

It doesn't matter what Miami does. They won't be winning anytime soon... Face it. As long as James/Durant are in this league, Heat have nothing. Wade is your best option and best player and he got schooled by Manu Gino. I want to see what Wade can prove but let's be honest, retooling for you guys is most likely in the 5 year range.

Wondering what Cleveland will have to give up in that S&T for Lebron.

Wiggins would have to go in a Love deal, or if I am Saunders, I am not making that move at all.

Did Pat give them 10mil a year, that I didn't know about?

Pat will always be in play for the big fishes.

Don't hate, because I think Pat will still get free agents to come here in time.

Pat Riley will retire either today or tomorrow

I'm hoping to hear an interview where LBJ says: "Well, I talk to Riley and he encouraged me to be loyal and not give up, and I thought he was totally right, so I'm going to be loyal to Cleveland and make up for giving up there and going to Miami. Thanks for the great advice Pat!"

That would be GREAT!

If they match Parsons they will pay the mega repeater tax by year 3, and they haven't given Beverly an extension yet. Probably a $100M payroll with tax. We'll quickly see how committed the owner is.

they won't even be in LT territory this year unless they want to be

Cavs have THREE 1st round picks next year lol.

from which teams?

Clevelands? Should be low.

Heat? has a chance to be a lottery pick with Lebron and Bosh bolting.

whom else?
