Default Re: Lebron is a free-agent

I don't think he leaves Miami.

If he leaves Miami and goes anywhere other than Cleveland, he's going to be labeled as a ring-chaser/mercenary (even more than it already is) and I really don't think he wants that to be his legacy. Would be a bit different if he went back to Cleveland, but would he really want to after all the craps Gilbert spewed after he left?

LeBron is the ultimate team player, he also averaged more assists then any player on the Spurs, James is a good fit for any basketball team and to think differently is just being blind!

I am having trouble remembering all the criticisms of Lebron. At one point it's that he passed too much instead of taking control. Now he wants the ball too much?

Lebron has been called many thing, a ball hog has never been one of them. He would do a tremendous job with the Spurs.

Yeah that big ego that could have stayed in small market Cleveland and been larger than life but instead shared the spot light with Wade and Bosh in Miami to win titles? I can promise you that the owner of the Hornets has no problem with egos and wants to win badly, he has a little clout in the basketball industry as well!

LMAO a ring chaser, if you play pro sports you are ring chaser! The first thing asked about a great professsional athlete is how many rings did he win... Was Shaq a ring chaser? Was Jabbar chasing rings win he requested a trade to the Lakers? I would ask was Wilt chasing a title but I think he was chasing white woman....Sir Charles chased rings. Karl Malone chased rings. We are all ring chasers of some sort!

I don't think he's going to Charlotte.

He'll either take less money to stay in Miami or he's going to Chicago or Houston will trade away players to open up some room

Default Re: Lebron is a free-agent

Jordan was paired with a top 50 player of all time in Pippen, one of the best defenders/rebounders, tremendous role players and had the best coach. He is the man, but he didn't need to leave to "chase" rings, he purposefully took less money (which he more than made up for through endorsements) to make those things a reality.

Reggie Miller said on the Dan Patrick show the other week that if Lebron leaves Miami, he will labeled as a ring chaser. I don't care much for Lebron and if has another "The Decision", then I will be forced to stop watching ESPN for a week.

Judging by his past decisions, I see Houston as the most likely team to land him. Chicago wants Melo and has been spending the last 6 months preparing the team for him. Sure, Lebron is a great addition to any team, but Chicago probably doesn't have the money for him. If not Houston, then probably back to Cleveland.

I know its unlikely, but think of this.. Starting lineup of Lebron James, Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker, Josh McRoberts, Gerald Henderson/Draft pick. Not something to just pass by.

Default Re: Lebron is a free-agent

A lot of people think Cleveland should trade the #1 pick for Kevin Love and then sign Lebron ... Irving/James/Love would be sick.

Also apparently the Bulls have put in a trade offer for Love .. Rose/James/Love?

Not disagreeing with you, but you know the star athletes are viewed more positively if they are drafted by a team, have the team built around them, then win titles as opposed to going to the team with the best chance of winning every time you hit free agency.

The whole notion of team loyalty for professional athletes is odd, but a lot of fans seem to really care about it.

Right he had more assists because SAS uses a ton of players. Sorry I do not see him as a fit.

I never called him a ball hog, I was pointing out that he shoots more than most on the Spurs. He would not be a main focus there, it would be a bigger adjustment than you guys want to admit.

He should go play in DC...not that they have any chance

He'd fit well anywhere he wants to go and would make them a title contender.

Default Re: Lebron is a free-agent

lebron certainly isnt selfish, but he is ball dominant. that doesnt mean he'd be a hindrance to the spurs or that they wouldnt want him. i root against him but any team would be crazy not to have a spot for him if they have a chance. i think he should stay in miami, i agree with pat riley that a lot of people are in panic mode for no reason. you dont need to get rid of everyone who didnt play well vs the spurs because a lot of those same guys played well vs the spurs the previous year. you retool and you try to improve the roster without necessarily overhauling it.

i hope he doesnt go the route of signing with who he thinks gives him the easiest road to a title. definitely hope we dont see lebron/melo team up wherever.

The Spurs have had very different styles depending on their personnel. In the late 90's they were a dominant post team with Robinson and Duncan with guys like Sean Elliott able to hit the outside shot. They've been the best defensive team in the league under Popovich, and they've been the best offensive team in the league under Popovich. The man knows how to take the talent he has and get the most out of it.

Now I am not sure what Popovich would choose to do, but whatever he chose to do it would work and Lebron would have amazing stats of various kinds. I think with the Spurs he would actually get triple doubles more often than not, somewhat like a Grant Hill.

All of this is likely a moot point, I just brought it up because I would personally like to see it.
