New York is the most well policed city in the US. LeBron can raise his family in a nice loft apartment in Manhattan that overlooks the entire city.
Dude you sound desparate.

Walker got robbed because he always get robbed here, because he's a ****ing slum lord and fluants his money.

Eddy Curry got hit because he had enemies.

Total Salary/holds= 25.9m
Expected Cap = $55m
Salary Space = 29m

Max Contract ~ 16.5m
2 Max Contracts ~33m

To me, it looks like Chicago is about $4m short of a 2nd max FA.

Nope, you are right. Bucher basically said last night ITS CLOSE ENOUGH! so ESPN changed from what they said (that they are short) to ITS ENOUGH!

But no one here cares, i did the same math you did yesterday.

I feel the Raptors or Cavs are going to bail the Bulls out with a S n T for Deng.

We should follow the Knick route and give up a first round pick for the next 6 years.

I thought the cap was at 56.1 or some such? Still not quite enough, but Im sure they will figure it out. Trade deng for about 9 mil (minus 1OOK /1.25) and they are right there.

What have the knicks done in that stretch? Nothing but pin their hopes on getting lebron to come and save their team for the last two seasons. They were dumb to think other teams weren't going to make some moves to get in on all the free agents this summer.

Now the Bulls have an all star point guard, a young battle tested defensive minded center who can get you 15/13 a night and cap room to bring in a top free agent that could turn this perennial playoff team into a contender while the knicks will still be in rebuilding mode. Add to the fact that our new coach is a defensive genius, it makes the Bulls that much more attractive a spot to land for any free agent.

Whose front office looks foolish and which one looks smart?

It's okay, you can say it.

lebron would be following after one legend in Jordan.

we honestly can't be as mad at Chicago as we should be at ourselves...

absolutely embarrassing draft night and we have a useless coach and are getting punished even further for past stupidities. If we don't get a marquee player, fire the entire organization and start over with Pritchard please.

I would rather have Chicago get LeBron and Bosh. At least they played this out the right way. The same can't be said about New York.

Wow Chicago will be one h3ll of a team if LeBron and Bosh and up there.
Wouldn't they have to trade for Bosh though?

He can still go to NY because it's NY....but the Bulls was his favorite team growing up...and talent wise if you want a shot to beat the Lakers.....got to go to the Bulls. Wow.....Chicago just won a cup and if LeBron heads there I guess they can forget about how terrible the Cubs are.

Maybe LeBron and Boozer to Chicago...Bosh goes to NY to be the main guy.

That helps the pain a lil right Knick fans?

Regardless of FA 2010 outcome, the Knicks should hire Pritchard. The guy might be an arrogant son of a *****, but he will definitely help make the Knicks a better team in the long run. Donnie Walsh has sacrificed way too much for the Knicks to be all in.
