    Lebron should retire.
    Nobody would expect that.

    I would love that.

    Have to wonder if he detracts more fans to the game than he draws. Seems like few outside of Clev like him.

    Yeah, honestly as time goes on any comparison to MJ just gets further away. This guys ego is just sad.

    James is certainly not detracting more fans than he attracts. Sure he's got a big ego but which superstar hasn't? I don't think I've hardly read a bad word about the guy. He sure likes the spotlight but that's just a good thing for the sport. I much rather have a guy like LeBron as the star of the sport than Crosby who says no to the Letterman show after the olympic gold.

    I don't think I really get why I'm supposed to dislike him so much? Is it because his ego? Isn't Kobes just as big? Carmelos? He's a lot closer to a good role model than those guys atleast. Shed some light for a guy whose pretty new to the sport and only read positive articles about the guy in swedish magazines. :MusicBigGrin:

    Pretty interesting webz, thanks.

    Wade will sign in Miami, and LBJ will go somewhere, maybe Chicago, both signing early. Then they will put more full count presses on free agents than they have on opposing point guards in their entire careers. LBJ will not like Wade courting kids he wants to play with and a new rivalry will be born. A boring one, but a rivalry nonetheless.

    Maybe LeBron goes to Miami and Wade goes home to the windy city.

    ...Who cares.

    We got Charlie Villanueva!

    Can't say I'm convinced after reading a couple of articles by a hater. Don't really see what's so upsetting in those articles either. It's not like he raped someone or pulled a gun in the locker room.

    Reading articles like these makes me happy that Dumars blew our salary cap on Gordon and Villanueva.

    while I still have my issues with the signings last summer, the thought process was perfect, might have preferred different players last summer (but can't name them..... so i'll go with who joe signed). Players are going to get way overpayed this summer and I think its not going to work out for most of the teams with cap space this summer.

    Lebron met with the Knicks ~Donnie Walsh and Diantoni today and also Nets new owner and jay-z ....I think Beyonce was the deal breaker, but she stayed at home.....so don't expect him to sign with the Jayz-Shore folks...

    I bet LeBron already knows what he is going to do. He is just messing with people.

    He likes the attention. I heard on the radio today that he is going to milk this thing until Monday.

    I'd say he'll stretch this out to at least the end of July.

    Most defennitely, wouldn't surprise me one bit if he held the league and media hostage all summer. I think this is going to blow up in everybody's face, especially if Amare goes to NY.

    It looks like LeBron might make up his mind on Monday according to SLAM.

    I wouldn't be surprised if two top FAs team up. I just don't think one of those will be LBJ. THere are reports everywhere that Knicks have pretty much reached an agreement with Amare and they are making a compelling pitch to Wade. That might be a better pairing than LeBron-Bosh.
