If everything pans out in this season and we improve upon our last playoff appearance (meaning that we reach the ECF) then we will have a real title shot in the next season. That's before PG expires.
Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.
With that said, if they decide they have to keep Danny long-term and let go of West to make things more financially feasible they might try signing him to a big 1 year contract and keeping this team together for 1 more run next year before we resign Danny/George. That would also put pressure on Danny (not that he needs it) to continue working because we could alway choose West over him. I'm spitballing here, but I think my real point is I want to see this team intact as long as possible.
I'm sure that some of those close ones would have been called on a no-name player, but that shouldn't take away from an absolutely incredible streak of amazing defense.
Also, one thing that Lebron does better than anyone I've ever seen: he knows when he has no chance to make a play. You don't see Lebron get "posterized" because he knows when he doesn't have the ability to make a play. If Lebron can't get to the ball, he isn't going to go for it. On all of his fouls, he makes a play on the ball. Most players would still try when they had no chance to make a play on the ball and end up fouling. Lebron doesn't ever give up silly fouls like that. Wade, on the other hand, tends to get a lot of fouls where he has no chance to make a play, fouls without making a play on the ball, and gives up a lot of "and ones."
@WallaceNBA_ESPN: Bosh: "If I'm lacking on my job, not a good rebounder, not what the team needs, then maybe I need to sit & learn more."
