I'm more concerned about LBJ to NJ

NJ has a solid team lined up already

Harris, VC, LeBron, fill in, Lopez

Lopez has been awesome and will be a top 10 center in the league. Harris is NUTS, finally showing why he was a lotto pick. VC has become a consistent 23 pts, 5 reb, 4 assist guy.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Duhon isn't going to sign for the MLE. He'd get more money elsewhere.

And that 2010 first-rounder goes to the Jazz (top 22 protected in 2009, unprotected in 2010).

Nobody is going to want Eddy Curry. What's he putting up this season?


i'm not saying duhon for the MLE i'm saying duhon and an MLE for back-up PG

why do the jazz have a 1st rounder from new york

you guys are forgetting the fact they would have 2 lottery picks between now and then and the MLE

and both duhon and chandler will be there trust me on that

and i dont see eddy curry being there he'll probably be traded for expirings

a mike D'antoni line-up would most likely look like this

bosh-minimum
chandler-lottery pick
lebron-gallinari
lottery pick-jefferies
duhon-MLE(possible resign of nate robinson)

they aren't as depth challeneged as you think

you are excluding in your guys analysis duhon, chandler both guys who will be resigned, the 2 lottery picks they will have this year and next year and the MLE and BAE at their finger tips

and for some reason gallinari who was their 1st round pick this year


Duhon - is making about $500,000 more than the MLE already, why would he resign for less if he's been making jack his whole career, plus hes going to be in his prime (hes only 26 now), this is probably going to be his last chance for a big contract. Money is more important while you are young in the nba due to family reasons, winning comes after you are 30+ imo.

Chandler - will be there due to team option but may be only 1 year rental because he will want more money.

Curry - Im sorry last stand but you are the ONLY one on this board that thinks Curry is solid, he will not opt out of his contract because he will never make that kind of money again (which is $11+ mill), he has a player options until 2011, so he probably be traded during the 2010 season, so hes most likely a 1 year rental as well

Jeffries - on year rental, may be traded during 2010 as well

Lottery Picks - They will only have 1 lottery pick (Nissan is correct about this) due to Utah receiving a 2009 New York first-round pick (top 22 protected in 2009 and unproteced in 2010) .... which most likely they will have the 2010 pick because NY WILL NOT be a top 8 team next year

Nate Robinson - he may or may not take the MLE, i actually think he will be offered a contract of around $7+ million

All in all, I think a possibility of a LBJ/Bosh duo could happen but the other stuff is already looking farfetched, it may happen but I hoestly think it wont turn out the way you are putting it

If VC goes, they have money to sign Bosh as well. Harris makes only 9 million a year. They can easily trade Vince for young talent.

PG Harris
SG LeBron
SF Yi
PF Bosh
C Lopez

i never said duhon was taking the MLE i said duhon and an MLE for a back up PG

lottery pick well they will have 1 then but thats still enough

wilson chandler will be there he is too good a player in that system to let him go

i do agree they will try their hardest to get rid of eddy curry

jared jefferies will stay IMO and be a very effective player

everyone keeps forgetting danilo gallinari why is that

so

bosh
lebron
jefferies
gallinari
chandler
duhon
robinson
lottery pick
MLE

so thats 9 very good to solid players

thats good enough to start and then 2 years of drafting and filling up with MLE signings is enough to make them and east power

Yeah, New Jersey will have the cash to give to LeBron in 2010. I'm not sure where you're getting your information, bro. They can keep Vince, re-sign Harris and STILL afford LBJ.

yeah your right i did the math they at this moment if they dont resign any of their rookies or players on rookie contracts are only tied to about 28 million in 2010

now if those rookies hit big though we may be talking a different story

CDR
lopez
williams
anderson
boone
jianlian

are all on rookie deals

Yi will be picked up by team option

Lopez will still be on his rookie deal, Williams isn't anything special, Boone is okay

Even if they just keep Yi and Lopez, their team is very impressive.

Harris
Vince
LeBron
Yi
Lopez
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

All have team options in 2010, the important ones at least.

And you said, "Duhon and an MLE for a backup PG," right? Well, are you saying you'd trade Duhon and the MLE for a backup? I don't get that...because if the Knicks want both Bosh and LeBron, they won't be re-signing Duhon in 2010. Not a chance.

duhon will make only 8 million tops

if they find a taker for curry that hardly hurts their chances

remember the cap will be at about 74 million

as long as they dont exceed 25 million in salaries they would be just fine to sign both

Let's keep the AIM chats like that off the site, please (especially if it contains comments like that). To be honest, I don't think anyone really cares what they think (whoever it is). Thank you.

No, because:

1) there were about three or four lines that shouldn't be posted on the site that were inappropriate to begin with, when any age group can browse the forums

2) he was personally attacking TLN and the members, which isn't allowed here, either, and he would be banned if he were a member (so why is it okay for his words to be posted if he's not registered?)

It's not needed here.

He's not a bandwagon what? A bandwagon LeBron fan?

Many people here don't like LeBron. They aren't banned.

He'd be banned for throwing out personal attacks and acting like a child in a community that, quite frankly, doesn't want his kind around here. That's basically it.

No need to discuss him any further. If he has something to say to me, he can come on this site and PM me, since he's a member. Talking through AIM and sending someone over to post his messages is a cowardly way to get it done, in my opinion.
