Big AL would be a multiple All Star if he played for a big market. I honestly feel like if he were healthy we could have beat the heat in our series. At one point He put up I think 17 points in about 3 minutes on one leg. If he stays healthy this year we need to sign him to an extension
Cleveland hasn't been to the playoffs since he left and one of those number ones is a bust who might get traded away with the other number one Wiggins for a guy who has never been to the playoffs in Love. He's also got a coach that has never been in the NBA.
This is hardly walking into the Heat in 2010 and the letter acknowledges that. Clippers, Bulls, and Suns all would have been better teams to go to. I want to still beat the guy but props to him for making things right.
Most importantly, this is great for the Hornets. The southeast is wiiiiiiide open.
It is more about having a roster full of assets which those other teams don't have. No one else would be able to sign Lebron and at the same time talk about trading for kevin love. Smells like another big 3 to me.
This is a victory for every fan of a small market team that had to put up with four years of "small markets can't attract stars, small markets can't keep their stars, small markets can't win in this league."
Now if Vince will just make amends with Toronto...
It is the exact opposite. Lebron said it had to do with it being his home which is why he went back. He should just admit Miami was done and Cleveland has a young stacked roster. 5 top 10 picks 3 of which were number 1 overall. Sorry just seems like he took the easy way out once again.
Apparently small markets need their stars to be born and raised in that city.
