    You're kidding right? Lebron was the defensive anchor of that team, besides they played good team D anyway. Defense was never the problem. The issue was who besides Lebron could carry the offensive load with Wade hobbled and Bosh heavily dependent on Lebron to set him up.

    Swapping Melo for Bosh cures that ill and I doubt you lose very much on the defensive end.
    Let me know what happens when Carmelo has to guard Tim Duncan, David West, Kevin Love, and all the other PFs of this league.

    All small market teams should prepare and accept that they will only keep stars until their first real free agency. Duncan is the only one in recent history who has stayed, and he almost left for Orlando.
    Don't forget Manu and Parker as well. KG stayed in Minnesota for 10 years before he was traded. Durant and Westbrook seem to be staying in OKC for the long haul. DWade has been in Miami his entire career (obviously a glamorous place to live, but is still a small market) Aldridge seems to be committed to POR as well. Kyrie just signed a long term extension in CLE. And obviously we can't forget about our own PG.

    I don't think its a forgone conclusion, but star player movement is definitely something that's happening more and more.I think a key is getting that extension signed before they become an UFA

    May I ask why it would be a great thing if he returns to Cleveland? After how he left? And how Dan Gilbert reacted? Because I don't see it.

    If anything this makes him look like a bigger dope than "The Decision" did that's no easy feat either.

    Personally it doesn't matter where he goes the Pacers aren't exactly going to be the favorites unless LeBron leaves the Eastern Conference entirely but he won't because I don't think he's that dumb.
    Time can heal wounds. Remember when Phil Jackson wrote that book about his (up to that point) final Lakers season in 2004? That was the off-season when him and Shaq departed the Lakers. Phil had all of those harsh quotes in the book about how Kobe was so difficult to coach, etc. Then the guy was back coaching the Lakers just one year later. Him and Kobe put all of the past stuff behind them and went on to win two more rings.

    Gilbert is just an owner. He won't be coaching or playing with Lebron. Won't be in the locker room, plane, team meetings, etc. What's most important to Lebron is if the organization itself fosters a good team around him. Right now it looks like they could. I don't think it would make him look like a dope if he went back there. If he brought the city its first title since the 40's, then he would be a God.

    Irving and PG had no other option than to re-sign long term. They would have just been restricted free agents and been re-signed for far less.

    They just signed McBob to replace Bosh. And by the way, no one you named can cover Melo one on one. Nice try tho. 😁

    McBob to Heat official...

    And he got Spencer Hawes money? Guess that 3pt shot made him millions after all. Thanks Jimmy.

    This is irrelevant....cuz this won't happen. Both LeDecision and Melo want the MAX....each totalling between $23 mil a piece. Wade would have to take a significant paycut for that to happen.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I doubt that the Heat would offer McBob the FULL MLE. That would be foolish. Maybe closer to $4 mil?

    I hope that LeDecision is not happy....but that's what happens when everyone wants to get paid. Something has to give.....either LeDecision wants the MAX or he takes a paycut.

    I will say this...

    Napier
    Wade
    LeBron
    McRoberts
    Bosh

    is better than last years version, but it would have very little depth imo. Assuming Miami did use the MLE for McRoberts that is.

    I'm wondering if Riley is starting to go after Players without the approval of LeDecision now.

    McBob has to be one of the luckiest ball players from Indy... has played for his hometown Pacers, played with Kobe, played for MJ, and now potentially gets to play with LeBron. And he was a part of the Dwight Howard trade.

    Having the opportunity to play at Duke under Coach K for two years should be added to that list as well.

    McRoberts is probably as close to Diaw-lite as it gets...LeBron might (?) be happy about that. Still have a small TPE to use.
