The thing is you still have no big men that I would truly believe in giving the ball at the end of the game and trying to make something happen. You can have all that guards if you want, loaded with talent.. but that's not gonna get you too far.. Ask coach K.

I really don't think Harris is that amazing. He can't really run a game by himself, you need more pieces and jefferson's proved that he isn't enough.

You're young? Cool. So is Orlando, Toronto, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Charlotte.. Those in the east alone. Should I keep going? I'd take a lot of those teams over New Jerseys roster in a heartbeat.

Nets fan instead of making a multiple choice thread about where he will go, make a thread instead about something like "Will LeBron Stay in Cleveland".... and if so, where will he go? And don't put something in like the Brooklyn Nets. And also, Miami is very random. Why would D-Wade want to be a sidekick again? Sure he could win championships, but would he really want to be known as Bron's sidekick for the rest of his life?

uh... how about you're whole damn team sherlock. they all signed the petition except for lebron and damon.
Lebron had an opportunity to use his celebrity athlete status as a political force but he shied away because Nike asked him not to. Lebron is NIKE's best basketball star right now they aren't going to fire him. He could've made a stand but he is not the type of guy to be concered with human rights issues.

the only reason i even mention this is that it shows you a little about his personal ethics. if he doesn't give two ****s about those people over there i'm sure he wouldn't give two ****s about leaving a brokenhearted fan like you crying in the corner after he dipsets to brooklyn. if it suits his needs.

sounds like they have a chance at having a better supporting cast for lebron in 2010 than cleveland might have. i mean... devin harris and richard jefferson are two better sidekicks than anyone cleveland has.

The Nets are my least favourite team in the League (I'm a Raptors fan), but they have some very good young players. Sean Williams is going to be a stud defensive PF, with decent offensive upside. Nachbar is tremendous shooter, with good size and athleticism for the 3, and Harris/Williams will be a very solid PG combo. If they can kick lose that cancer Carter…and add Lebron, that would be a tremendous young team come 2010.

Aside from the Lebron the Cavs have either severely aging veterans, scrubs, or limited roleplayers (with the exception of West who will be a very legit starting PG with great D). The Cavs don't sucks by any means...but there are many teams with better prospects in terms of winning, and a much bigger media market to profit from.

I would be very surprised to see Lebron remain there after his contract is up...the management has done poor job of cap management and talent acquisition…and as good as Lebron is free agents do not want to live in Cleveland, so it will very hard to get a legit 2nd option for him.

Carter. If he played on a team I owned I would it hate it.
I'd rather not derail this thread, so I will leave it that.

Yeah, in my opinion New Jersey is still a good team, and VC would be good trade bait. Plus, they have two first rounders this year. New Jersey might be a good team down the road even without LeBron James.

Hibbert's slow, but he'd give you a lot of size. I'd rather take maybe Kevin Love to get some rebounds, or take a chance on Anthony Randolph with your first pick, and then use your other 1st rounder on either Hibbert, who could still be available, or get some depth on the wing if that's what you're looking for.

Oh Boy!! Roy Hibbert. Possibly one of the most overrated players in college basketball this year. Look if he can't help his own team win against Davidson, (Who I have in my elite 8 this year, losing to Kansas tomorrow.. uh thank you) How can he help the nets going against people like Dwight Howard and other freak centers. He's slow as anything. But go ahead, draft him.. I'm terrified.

The thing with KG with the 'wolves can't even compare to LeBron and the Cavs. KG was always unhappy because they never gave him anything close to a supporting cast minus the year they did decent with Sprewell and Cassell and when Olowokandi was actually decent. But the main thing is, they never WON. LeBron has had a winning record every year with the cavs except his first season. They're doing ok with that. 52-30 last year. Try to think about things before you make an argument there champ.

You're right about Hibbert, he's not gonna scare too many people even with his 7'2". He would probably just be a rotational player for the Nets, joining Krstic, Williams, and Boone. That group isn't great, especially since there isn't a big-time scoring threat down low. Krstic can stretch the floor on offense, Wiliams can block shots, and Hibbert can try and be an impact down low on both ends. He's mainly a bench player, but he could probably be a really ****ty team's starter. I think LeBron's got a good supporting cast around him, and if Gibson keeps developing into the #2 option, and at least keeps shooting at a high percentage from three point range, LeBron and the Cavaliers will always be contenders in the weak East. Boston's not gonna be a factor for years down the line, and I don't think Detroit will be up to par once Billups and Wallace start deteriorating, so maybe Cleveland could start dominating the East in a few years. If I'm LeBron, it might not be a bad idea to stick around.
