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
So well put. All these events lead us to right now. WE NEED ANOTHER WRINKLE!! It would kill me if he went to the Knicks. Alot will ride on Brooklyn.
