    The letter proves what I've been saying the last few days: LeBron had already made up his mind a while ago.
    Just heard Cowherd read the whole thing. It must have taken two days just to write it.

    Now here come the rest of the dominoes....Bosh to Houston, Love to Cleveland and Lance to whatever team with cap space that loses out on the rest of the free agents.
    Wouldn't it be funny if Miami ended up signing Lance with all that cap space they have? We know they like ex-Pacers after all.

    Noticed that in his letter, LeBron mentions Irving, Thompson, Waiters, Varejao... no mention of Wiggins.

    Maybe Wiggins-Love is cued up.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Yep. No Bennett, either.

    To player where? SF?

    Wade isn't playing anywhere but SG.

    Lance doesn't fit there. Or with Kobe in LA, for that matter.

    If it were I, I would have asked my PR people to prepare 2 statements way beforehand. And have them check repeatedly for possible gaffes, etc

    I seriously doubt that LeBron would be returning to Cleveland if KLove is not joining him.

    Maybe Wade goes to Chicago? No idea, Heat are basically a blank slate right now.

    The Heat are going to build the ex-Pacer, anti-LeBron team.

    That's the best part of this "Decision" I cannot stand d-wade, much less pat riley. Lebron left them both out in the cold. Good for LeBron and he makes up with his hometown.

    Am I reading too much in the fact that LeBron didn't name drop Wiggins like he did Varejao, Irving, Thompson, and Waiters?

    Wiggins and Bennett for Love?
    Would make the most sense. Two players longest on their Rookie contracts, so best assets for team control while Rubio and Pek eat up all that cap space

    With LeBron in the Central....we're screwed if Melo goes to Chicago.

    Before...I hated LeBron in the East.....but at least he was in a different division. Now that he's in the Pacers own backyard....that makes it near impossible to win the Central Division Title.

    Add in that Melo may go to Chicago....that makes it that much harder for the Pacers to get a 3rd or 4th Seed in the East.

    Also....how far of a drive is it from Cleveland to Indy? I'm gonna hate seeing a flood of Bulls and Cavs fan invade Indy for the next 3 to 4 seasons.

    I don't believe I am saying this, but that article is very well written. I didn't think LeBron would come out of this looking that good, but between his finals post game press conference and this article, my respect of him as grown a whole lot. He's not the same LeBron from the decision, that's for sure.

    Accurate or not, he will now largely be seen as a good guy again.

    Pretty much- just look at some of the posts in this forum alone. Very well done by LeBron.

    I had a nightmare very early in the free agent period, before we even made Lance the offer I think…anyways I dreamt that Lance was signed by Miami and I woke up pissed off, it was one of those real vivid dreams. I really hope my dream doesn't come true, but at this point why on earth wouldn't Miami go after him. They need a wing to replace Lebron…no one is a LeBron replacement, but Lance probably thinks he can be haha. I got a bad feeling about it coming true.
    *removed* Just keep politics and religion completely out of it, please.

    They should also make a "coming home" montage for Brian Whindhorst.

    Lance is the kind of dude that I think personally would dislike Wade. Then again, for a couple million extra, he could probably get over it.

    People in Minnesota have to be absolutely thrilled of ditching Love, who didn't want to be there anyway, for Wiggins.
