LeBron's D is like Bruce Bowen's compared to Morrison. He is going to seriously struggle holding down a starting spot because of his defense. There are guys in the league that are bad on defense and then there is Adam Morrison... I think I could score relatively easily on him.

Chicago deal better than Charlotte's = Gordon, Duhon, Chandler, Deng & picks for Bron... picks may be too much. It'd leave them with Hinrich, Bron, Nocioni, Thomas & a C from next year's draft (Oden if they keep the option to switch with Knicks)

Orlando deal better than Charlotte's = Nelson, Milicic, Battie, Ariza, picks for Bron... Arroyo, Redick, James, Howard, whoever

etc. I don't feel like going through the scenarios.

LeBron is viewed as a once in a generation perimeter player. Maybe a once in a lifetime player. If he were to be traded BEFORE he becomes a free agent, there would be a better package than what Charlotte is rumored to have offered. In fact, if I were Cleveland, I would MAKE him walk even if it meant me getting no compensation. No way, there is nO WAY he would leave an extra year and another 20+ million on the table or whatever the number would be. He just wouldn't do it. And Kobe wouldn't have done it to the Lakers either which is why they should have gotten a better deal for Shaquille but that's another story.

The questions I want answered are why does he want to be traded and why Charlotte?

First of all... there are many reasons why he may want to be traded. Secondly... why Charlotte? He didn't say he wanted to go to Charlotte. That's just a rumored offer FROM Charlotte. Of COURSE they'd make an offer if they thought they could get him. Doesn't mean it's happening... cause it isn't.

I didn't say he wanted to go to Charlotte. Why are they the only team with an offer? Why are the Cavs already having trade discussions?

None of this adds up.

It doesn't add up because it isn't true.

Don't know what to think about this
What's your source, this is bull**** man, no way he'd refuse an extention in his hometown, let alone to be traded to the worst team in the league, get your life together man, if you want to post such a bogus rumor, atleast have a source to back it up.

It doesn't add up because it's bs.

There's a possibility that he rejected the extension offer (has there even been one yet?) but that's about as far as I'd believe.

Nelson >>>>>>>>>>> Felton. No, that's not an exaggeration.

Milicic (if he gains confidence) >>>>>>>>>>> May. No, that's not an exaggeration.

Gerald Wallace isn't worth the difference. Yes, he's way better than Ariza but Battie would more than make up for it.

Morrison is garbage and JJ Redick will prove to be a better pro than him even though both may end up being busts.

There has been the max offer of 5 years, 80 million dollars by the Cavs. They offered the contract at midnight last night (earliest possible time).

Yea. I was questioning whether he was just messing round. But he told me it was rumored that Lebron rejected the contract, and the Cavs are open to trading him now, and that the Bobcats were right there with an offer. I honestly don't believe it, but found it worth posting. Apparently I was wrong, seeing that I must "get my life together" and "shut up" because I posted it.:rollingeyes:

I'm just saying man, that is such a ridiculous rumor, it would be nice to actually see where you would have heard this.
