talentless supporting cast? 3 out of his 4 fellow starters have all star appearances, 2 have multiple

Hurt, seriously hurt? Dudes elbows been scoped more times then abe vigoda's rear and there has yet to be a serious injury identified

I love the guy and he has supplied me with a lot of sports watching joy over the years, but he doesnt have it like Kobe and Michael yet. th efocus wasnt there when the expectations were at their highest. if he leaves, regardless of titles in the big city, this will be a smudge on his legacy.

fire Brown 5 minutes ago, bring in avery johnson, and signed Lebron to a 3 year deal. Hes only 25, he still has time to explore NY later

antawn jamison is good, not great.
mo williams made the all-star team last year as a replacement for the injured chris bosh.
shaq, despite being a 15-time all-star is nowhere near the dominant player he was in his prime ten years ago.

none of them made the all-star team this year.

3 celtics did, though (garnett, rondo, and pierce). ray allen didn't make it, but he only played in every all-star game from 2000-2009.

my argument is in the use of "talentless", the line up is far from talentless

your word, not mine. i said the cavs front office didn't bring in *legit* talent to play alongside lebron. here are the all-stars from the last 5 championship teams. every team has more than one.

2008-2009 lakers: kobe bryant, pau gasol
2007-2008 celtics: kevin garnett, paul pierce, ray allen
2006-2007 spurs: tim duncan, tony parker
2005-2006: dwyane wade, shaquille o'neal
2004-2005 spurs: tim duncan, manu ginobili

the only all star from the 2004 pistons championship team was ben wallace, but that was a total fluke team, as previously mentioned.

It was mine, actually. And I'll stick to it. These squads have been LeBron and piecemeal ex-talent. Many of them are nice role players (Varejao), and some look great playing next to the King (Williams, West), but none of these guys could carry a team for a few nights if LeBron happened to be off or injured. Shaq is a shell of his former self and Jamison played awful in his stint with Cleveland. Ferry never did what it took to get that key #2 scorer to complement James. I'm not sure who that is, but it definitely isn't Shaq or Jamison or Mo Williams.

Many, including myself, thought James could turn it on and do it all by himself this year. Hopefully he'll get a few more years in Cleveland with his own personal Scottie Pippen. Did Mo Williams ever get his own pair of shoes?

the pippens are sweet, no doubt about it

we thought Larry Hughes would be the answer , and that didnt work out (although they did get to the finals with his sorry ass)

I agree that we could find a better 2 option (a.stoudemire anyone??? sacred cow JJ played about 6 minutes in the playoffs) but the signings of shaq, jamison, moe and even Hughes were run through Lebron. He does have to shoulder some of the blame for the playoff collapse

maybe well get a bosh etc. , but more then likely were looking at rebuilding around Hixson

oh joy

I just want to stop time at the moment Game 3 ended in Boston. WTF happened after that? The whole season fell apart.

For the young-ins, in the 70's Rick Manning slept with Dennis Eckersley's wife, leading to the Eckersley's eventual departure.

Eckersley did this:

Manning does color commentary for Tribe broadcasts.

very impressive jawbreaker, i challenge you to a duel on beer money


as for the cavs:

We need Coach K, we have the Danny Ferry Duke connection, and he coached LBJ at the olympics. There is no time like now for him to attempt the NBA, he has revived the DUKE legacy and its not often that NBA teams that have won 60 games back to back are looking for a coach.

When he gets here he needs to revamp the line up to look like:

PG - Mo
SG - LEbron (the ultimate match up problem at the 2)
SF - Jamison - (he'll be much more effective with less banging)
PF - Hixson - (no time like the present)
C - Varejao - (High pick and roll with Lebron as much as possible)

Bench - Parker, Gibson, Moon, Powe

c ya: delonte (not cool dude, not cool at all), and Shaq (thanks for the effort, we wish you well), Z (go get paper in Dallas playa)

and then

trade back into the 2nd rd to get Zoubek from Duke to be a 7 foot role player/ enforcer/defender etc

at least you won't have to worry about varejao getting into foul trouble defending all the league's legit big men, since dude has never committed a foul in his life, ever...

also, i generally like to see my 5's spend more time on their feet than on the floor...

Nets making their pitch. New owner with $$$, Jay-Z's star appeal, Avery Johnson is the new coach, and they're moving to Brooklyn in a couple years. Nets were awful last year, but have a couple of good pieces (Devin Harris, Brook Lopez and the recently drafted Derrick Favors) that could fit well with LeBron.

I predict Lebron signs for 2-3 years with Cleveland, then if nothing happens, runs off to join The Circus in Brooklyn with his Buddies.

I don't get how Jay-Z can take LeBron out to dinner last week and doesn't get fined for tampering. Steve Kerr just brought up LeBron in an interview in a joke and got fined $10,000.

I hope LeBron stays in Cleveland and think he will, with a short 3 year deal. If he leaves and goes to the Nets or Knicks, I don't think it puts him any closer to a title. I don't think he and DWade can co-exist in Miami, and I don't see why he would want to go to Chicago and live in Jordan's shadow.

That's just silly.
#1) Win a title NOW
#2) Jordan's shadow covers the entire NBA...what number does LeBaron wear again :?: :?: :?: :?: :arrow: :oops:

I'm pretty sure they only think that because they know now they really had no chance of getting him in the first palce. It's easier to say "Oh, well he was going to stay in Cleveland all along," than to admit Chicago and Miami are just better places to be. Especially when your one "big" free agent pickup is probably just going to be Amar'e Stoudamire.

Mikhail Prokhorov seems to never be wrong (13.4 billion $ is testimony), and he thinks Bosh is going to Miami with Wade. No way LeBron goes there.

He's either staying in Cleveland where he won't win a championship until he's 29, or he goes to Chicago where he can have a legitimate shot at having three rings at 29.

raptors OK with sign-and-trade that would send chris bosh to cavs.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5357607

doubt it would actually happen, though. too bad, cuz i'd love to see varejao sent to toronto. really anywhere in canada. maybe the yukon. the colder, the better...
