Kinda sucks for the city of Cleveland, and those long time Cavs fans if true. Oh well, Chi-town isnt too far from Cleveland, they can always jump(or jump back) on the Bulls bandwagon.
For some reason, I thought Bosh was somehow gonna end up in LA, but I guess not according to this report

To me, if this is true it cements MJ's legacy as being greater than LeBron's even if he wins an NBA championship every year for the rest of his career.

When Jordan came to the Bulls, they were nothing. When Lebron came to the Cavaliers, they were nothing. Jordan stayed the course, let the team build around him, and then willed them to championships. Lebron failed to do that and is now bolting via free agency with another superstar to manufacture NBA titles instead of earning them, he's buying them. An absolute fraud.

Lebron to the Cavaliers was of storybook nature. Ohio boy makes good. It all the makings of a lengthy and record breaking career.... but he steps on it for the Bulls.

Forever tarnished.

they never built around lebron... plus you factor in the wide coaching margin in my opinion that makes it interesting.

This would be tampering, so I wouldn't think the word would get out like this if true.

July 1st is the clear date for free agency... right?

What exactly did the Cavs do to ever help Lebron?

Jamisson, Shaq, Mo Williams.....not the front offices fault that those players didn't live up to the expectations they had set for themselves.....Lebrick also had a tendency of coming up small when it mattered most in the postseason so it's not all on the supporting cast either....

There's also a rumor of Bosh to Miami being a "done deal". I don't buy a bit of it, anything at this point would be tampering. The fun all starts in just a few short days though.

LeBron had several triple doubles this past playoff (including the last game of his season) how many did Kobe have? He came up mighty small in the biggest game of his career to this point. Good thing he's got guys like Artest and Gasol to carry the load when he has those 6-24, 8-30 nights he usually does. Its a big reason why the Lakers are champions.

Lebrick is that you???? Seriously, Lebron couldn't even make it to the Finals, better yet the Easter Conference Finals so to try and insult Kobe for having a bad game from the field in game 7 of the NBA Finals is laughable at best....don't tell me they haven't had good teams.....they have been the number 1 seed the last two years, those scrubs he plays with must be doing something right.....

This is bullshit. First off how can you compare fuging Cleveland to Chicago. CLEVELAND!!! Noah already told yall. Chicago is a major sports market with money and resources much longer than Cleveland will ever have. Its apples to oranges. Now if you said Jordan stayed in Charlotte or Milwaukee or some other small market and built a contender, I'd agree, but Chi-town? Do you realize how huge a market that is. This guilt trip stuff to force LeBron to stay in Cleveland is bullshit. No one has won in that city in 50 years, so why yall holding it against LeBron if he dips? The guy took em to the Finals, he holds every significant record in that franchise and is already its greatest player at 25.

But the fact remains, if he wants to win MULTIPLE championships it will not happen in Cleveland. Even if he won a championship in Cleveland, the brownie points he would get for it, wouldnt outweigh the props and recognition he would get winning in a city like Chicago. If Cleveland isnt doing what it needs to do to get a title than LeBron should bounce. On one hand yall knock him for not winning a title, but if he puts himself in the best position to do that his legacy is tarnished? Get real.

LeBron has to make his own path and not fall in the trap of tryna follow Jordans. If LeBron leaves Cleveland how will that be any different than Dr.J leaving New Jersey or Kareem leaving Milwaukee? It wont be the first time a superstar switches jerseys to win in a bigger market.

If true, I bet Cleveland will probably get Deng back in a sign and trade deal.

If they solidify the SG position, that roster would be completely nasty. If I were Flip, I would be pressing hard to stay in Chicago and be the starting SG.

The Cleveland GM would be signing his death warrant if he does a sign and trade.

Who wants to be the guy to pull THAT boner?

Not gonna happen.




I'm not counting any chickens before they hatch, so these are just rumors until any deal gets done.
Am I excited about the possibility though?
Darn tootin'.
