i think your in denial this could happen not about lebron
most of the Mods and Admins are not kobe fan boys and respect lebron as do i and i dont think you are in denial over lebron being paired up with a superstar because you dont want to see it happen
Either I'm misunderstanding what you're saying here, or you aren't reading my posts.
LeBron is my second favorite player in the league. If he paired with Bosh, I would love that. It wouldn't bother me one bit.
And if you're calling me a Kobe fan boy, I guess that makes little sense, considering the fact that I would trade Kobe for LeBron in two years.
In two seasons, Nash will still be throwing seven assists per game. Steve Nash's age doesn't reflect his condition, minus his back problems, which are actually minor (just being blown up by people who absolutely hate the Suns). Nash didn't play much at all at the beginning of his career, and finally got it going a few years after being in Dallas. He's not Iverson, who has had to carry a team from day one.
Since I'm sick of talking about this, I'm going to cut to the chase and be realistic here...
With ONLY Curry and Jared Jeffries taking their player options, the Knicks would have an $18 million payroll. Do you honestly believe they will have two players on their roster, who amount to NOTHING, in June 2010? Are you saying that they will let Harrington, Mobley, Richardson, James, Thomas, Duhon, Gallinari, Robinson, Lee and Chandler all walk?
Because if they don't, that payroll will be around $40 million or more, and that leaves room for LeBron, Wade OR Bosh. I don't care if New York turns into the world's official capital and changes their name to NBA York, a team with nothing on it will not draw a single player in free agency, because LeBron and Bosh aren't stupid. Put them together with scrubs (it will have to be all minimum contracts, D-Leaguers), and they lose in the NBA Finals, and they know that.
Instead of us being in denial, I think you might be in dreamland. There's a very, very slim chance that the Knicks get this done...and if they do rake in both LeBron and Bosh, they will have absolutely nobody else on the team (not Lee, Richardson, Duhon or anyone demanding more than $6 million a year), and they will lose to any West powerhouse, and possibly a better East team.
