Lebron a Net? Is this not even a discussion anymore?
 
What happened to all the hype of king James coming to the Nets? Jay Z better get to work and start shaking things up again. I don't want to give up on the dream. But I see it slipping away.

Well Jay Z said himself there friends and theirs a fine line between friendship and business.
Plus it looks more and more like LeBrons gonna wind up staying in Cleveland on a count of how well their playing right now.
I'm sure we all still hope he will come though.

a lot of it slipped away when the brooklyn move encountered yet another wave of setbacks at some point, delaying its opening past 2010 and ensuring that we would still be in jersey cüm 2010.

also, with isiah thomas finally getting his ass kicked to the curb and the knicks regaining a load of basketball intelligence and financial reserve, NYC quickly became a hot destination for lejames.

later a wave of articles came out talking about how the supposed "huge 2010 superstar walkabout" was going to be a major disappointment because stern has designed the market for home teams to give FA stars the best salary, helping them stay put 85% of the time or so.

plus the cavs, if you haven't noticed, are a superb team and give lejames every reason to stay put... at least at this time. and if they could somehow dump big ben's bloated contract then i would not want to be in the celtics' shoes.

the fact is that every 3-4 months this whole story takes a new wrinkle.

hope that helps!

EDIT: ah, just as i post this i see MT beat me.
oh well, now you have two responses. :P

dont count on getting lbj. he's better off staying in cleveland for contract reasons and if they have a team prepped to win multiple titles, he won't be going nowhere. there was a good espn article about the summer of 2010 and how the only thing we can really confirm is that chris bosh will be wanting out of toronto. leading to the anti-climactic summer of free agency because of the economy and the fact that players can sign better contracts if they resign with their current teams.

we just have to hope to get the right pieces. i think we're two hard nosed defensive players away from getting a really good basketball team.
