While I am thinking about it, the fact that Lebron played Boston like they were going to roll out the red carpet for him speaks volumes of his sense of entitlement. You are playing against not 1, not 2, but 3 HOF's with a young gun like Rondo that shines in the playoffs. And then you make a statement about 3 bad games in 7 years. That really turned me off to the "greatness" of Lebron. Kobe had to learn the same thing, hopefully Lebron does soon.

As far as the MLE, you can only use it if you are over the cap or the signing will put you over the cap.

Lee is the Knicks' asset that people are forgetting about, if there's a sign and trade it would involve David Lee. This of course means Lee would have to agree to go to Toronto, but if the money is right I don't think he'll care. If not, the Knicks are out of the picture for Bosh in terms of a sign and trade.

Good point. Thing is it would have to be a max contract or close to it for a max contract. Does Toronto want to pay Lee that kind of money?

LOL.

Yeah, you don't want that to happen.

I think why LA is brought up in LeBron threads period is because people in the back of their minds knew or rather were afraid that the Cavs would've ousted the Lakers had they both made the finals.

Right now I have dudes who never email me, can hardly get them to respond to things important to some serious things going on in life, going on a roll about LeBron. They're lakers fans... these dudes are so predictable its not even funny, and if you want to call it hate, enjoy the name calling. I know what I know.

That said, I still dont think LeBron even knows what he's going to do yet. The Cavs have alot of important decisions to make immediately.
We both know they have 1 EASY decision to make.

#3. Anybody who says, "The fact that I spoil a lot of people with my play -- when you have a bad game here and there, when you have three bad games in a seven-year career." Really Lebron, only 3 bad games?


Yea, that's entitlement.

You done? I personally don't mind what LeBron said and don't see what the big deal is anyway. If we wanna read into stuff like everyone has been doing on this series, maybe he meant three bad playoff games? LeBron has carried that team since he got there, he didn't show up in Game 5 and he got bent over for it. He should get criticized for it, but people took it to an extreme that it didn't have to go.

No having the best player on your team doesn't gurantee you anything but history has done a pretty good job of showing us that the team with the highly accepted best player in the world is going to contend for titles. LeBron, Kobe, Shaq, Jordan, Bird, Magic, Russell, Wilt the list is long and they all end in rings except one so far. To say you don't want the best player in the world on your team is outrageous.

Re: The Official "Where is LeBron going?" Thread

Kobe has been down a similar road before. Yet when his name was being mentioned in a trade people were jumping from the Sears Tower in joy.

Also I remember a certain character that a lot of people thought would ruin the Bulls core and chemistry. Mr. Rodman anyone? How did that turn out?

Noah's isn't get brainwashed by anyone. He's his own man. Rose on the other hand will just side by everyone's side.

No idea, maybe Vince can comment on it.

Lebron can't take the good with the bad. When he's winning, he is taking pictures. When he's losing, he can't shake the winners hand. History tells us that the team with the best player in the world, and with the biggest ego will not win a championship. The list is surprising as long, Kobe, Shaq, Jordan, Wilt, Kareem. Bottom line, players don't win championships, teams do.
