in Todays league you need at least 1 Super Star, 2 stars, 3 up and coming stars and 5 role players. I bet Dallas goes after him harder then anyone else, Half the team has said they will take pay cuts to bring him there.

The the Knicks continue to look relatively good, then yes maybe he'll go. But I don't think he wants to go to another rebuilding project because what he really wants to do is win a championship.

Someone shot a video of the area where the arena is supposed to be built.



There's a lot of traffic there already. Typical New York ambiance.

As for the NHL, there is a rumor about the Islanders possibly joining the Nets at the Brooklyn arena. It may make sense for them to share one arena, as opposed to staying in separate arenas. However, it would depend on if Charlie Wang thinks it makes more business sense to be a part-owner or even renting of the new place, as opposed to continuing with the Lighthouse project in Nassau.

That's pretty sad that they would be willing to do so. Because you know he would not do the same.

Who really cares where he goes?

You have to kind of feel bad for the Cavs. If they do lose him, their franchise will suffer as they will not sell as manay tickets, merchandise, appear on TV as much, etc.

In the end, i think its all about money with him. Since no one can give him the contract Cleveland can, i think he stays there.

yes!!! christmas came late! ganis was banned! man, i don't post on this forum... all i do is read all the great info available and one thing for sure is that reading his drivel made it a negative experience for me sometimes.

as for the arena, i hope the islanders move to it so i don't have to go to that long island dump for rangers games.

cheers

Not that Ganis wasn't a moron, but you think Mark Cuban couldn't?

Well, no.

Under the current CBA Cleveland would be allowed to give LeBron more money than anyone else.

Cuban could certainly give him loads of money, but not as much as Cleveland.

Thats why I dont think hes going to want to go to Dallas. I think it will be between the most money (Cleveland) or where his heart is (New York or New Jersey).

I think he'd want to go to a large market with a lot of the pieces in place to make a serious championship run.

New York makes a lot of sense in the first regard but both teams really need to clean house on- and off-court.

Could he get along well with Kobe or D-Wade?

if the Mavs and the cavs do a sign and trade, lebron can get 7/135 from the Mavs.

Kobe? No. Wade? Yes.

While Im sure LeBron and Kobe get along fine in real life, I dont think they could be on the same court together. Wade I believe would enjoy playing with LeBron, playing Pippen to Lebron's Jordan.

Dampiers contract and Josh Howard.

Dampiers contract alone works financially.

This isnt about price, its about whether Cleveland would be trading away their team and its future.

Howard and Dampier for LeBron? Come on man. What could Cleveland possibly gain from that?

Yeah, that's a good point...their only real "star" is Dirk...otherwise it's pretty much a bunch of good role players.

It is not hard to re-build an NBA team. You only neeed a few good players. Celtics went from worst team in the NBA to Champions in a year span.
