    Default Lebron will be new GM of Cavs

    AKRON, Ohio -- LeBron James says he would like to have some input on which players the Cavaliers add to their roster as the free agency period begins next week.

    He shared his thoughts about the Cavaliers' offseason during a news conference Friday in his hometown of Akron to promote "LeBron's King for Kids Bike-a-thon."

    The 20-year-old All-Star said he hasn't gotten involved in the hiring of a coach and general manager, but would welcome Larry Brown as president, even though Brown limited him on playing time during the Olympics.

    Brown, whose season as coach of the Piston ended Thursday night, has had discussions with the Cavaliers' ownership about becoming the team's president.

    James also said he would like to see Joe Johnson, Michael Redd, Ray Allen or Larry Hughes join the team, as well as Chicago's Eddy Curry.

    James did not mention Cavaliers free-agent center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, whom James openly campaigned to keep last season.

    (Great player but at the age of 20 he just needs to play)
    "He wanted to get to that money time. Time when the hardware was on the table. That's when Roger was going to show up. So all we needed to do was stay close"
    Darnell Hillman (Speaking of former teammate Roger Brown)

    If there is anyone smart in that organization, this will never happen as long as he's still playing. It didn't work for Michael Jordan, so why would it work for Lebron James? A player who could go over his coaches' heads (in a way)...Yikes!

    Unreal. God, other than the Pacers, I hate the NBA. This league is getting out of control letting the superstars do whatever they want.

    These kids just need to chill and go to White Castle
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    That's ridiculous. However, if he is campaigning to get Curry, does that mean he wants Z out?

    Bah, I don't even care.

    I don't see the big deal. Only the thread title said he wanted to be GM. I don't think that is even remotely the case.

    All stars have imput on who is on the roster. If it is his team then he should be involved in the conversation.

    Its pretty much common knowledge that the Cavs want to do anything they can to get LeBron to stay. Every one of those players are top free agents. By LeBron publicly stating that he would like them to play with him maybe it will increase the Cavs chances of getting them.
