Wow.. what passes as journalism these days is sad.


If you read the article, it's news because a couple of GM's have mentioned it. Still speculation, bit it's also not just pulled out of thin air by the writer. (Just by the gm's)

Well apparently he wants to play with CP3, so I see the following scenario happening:

1. Howard resigns for the 5 year max.
2. CP3 resigns with the Clippers for the 5 year max through 2018, with the opt out clause after the 3rd year, 2016, (same type of contract D-Will signed)
3. Lebron opts in the Heat for both 2015 and 2016 since the Heat are still contenders and he can get another max contract at an older age.
4. Kobe and Gasol return after 2014 on 2 year deals (I HIGHLY doubt Kobe retires in 2 years) and the Lakers structure their contracts so they only have Howard on contract for the 2017 season.
5. Lebron and CP3 sign with the Lakers and join Howard in 2017.

I don't want this to happen. But its the Lakers and something like this always happens.

That's a whole lot of ifs and buts

I am simply a big basketball fan first and foremost, i soak it all in, the only thing i "dickride" is basketball...

You just recently claimed that Wade cost Miami the 2011 title to avoid placing blame on LeBron at all costs.

And that's only one of many instances.
