    No you wouldn't. I have yet to see any fan stick up for not trading a highly paid and underperforming player out of some sense of loyalty.

    This is a business. This is one of only a handful of times in a player's career where he gets to do what's best for himself.
    If a player is not good, and he's been so for a long while, then he's not a superstar anymore. So yes, I wouldn't care.

    In general, I don't have strong loyalties. I'm probably not even a "fan" the way you use that term. I care about the Pacers, but I care much more about basketball in general. Most basketball games I watch, I have no sides. I don't think about the NBA through the Pacers prism. So I'd much rather see LeBron stay in Miami, even if the Pacers might be a bit better off with him in Houston. It's got nothing to do with player freedoms or business sense. It's just more interesting to me.

    Riley's pitch line for every free agent that he goes after starts with:

    Did I mention that you can get free hot dogs if you decide to sign with the Heat?

    ..........Hopefully we can afford to pay for the hot dogs now that Wade and Bosh are expecting to get paid big $$$ too.

    Then someone is eating 142, b/c I don't eat them. Or all those show dogs being baited with hot dogs in the show ring are being counted.

    I can't truly remember the last time I ate a hot dog... probably decades ago. I put a hot dog 1 step above eating liver. Cripes, the thought of eating either gives me the willys. Hope, I don't have nightmares tonight about that garbage.

    Good points made by the author, but the fact still remains that if winning is the number one priority the stars will take a paycut.

    We should try and get Jarrett Jack if Lance doesn't re-sign.

    If I'm a team with cap space, I'm asking for 2 first round picks at least, and the Cavs would probably do it if it meant LeBron.

    Broussard is going to be taken even less seriously than he already is if he gets it wrong AGAIN this time.

    From a player personnel standpoint, I would take Cleveland's roster over Miami's. Irving, Andrew Wiggins, Varejao, Waiters, Thompson, Bennett...add LeBron to that and that's arguably better than Wade, Bosh and a bunch of veterans.

    Isn't there a rule though that a team can only have one true max contract? Kyrie just got one of those. How would they be able to give LeBron one?
