I disagree, but who knows?

One thing I wish for; let Miami get all three. Then if the Finals are Lakers/Heat.....The Heat will more to lose than Los Angeles.

One silver lining in this: watching the Lakers take down this team in the finals will eclipse even this year's victory over the Celtics, and it would be a dream matchup for the NBA: Kobe & Jackson vs. LeBron/Wade/Riley.

You can also mark that matchup down for the Christmas game.


EDIT: Thinking the same thing, RedRocks!

Pressure will be on LeBron & Co. No doubt about it.

And, again, I really have liked Lebron, a lot, right up until this week when it all got to be too much.

Fuck you and your fucking "brand". Real champions just want to be branded as a winner, not a global marketing icon.
Well done, sir.

Now I'm starting to wonder if all this Miami stuff isn't smoke-and-mirrors on the part of ESPN so his decision to stay in the Cleve is even more "shocking" and this little TV special of his is even more of a "landmark" television moment. ESPN may be the only entity free agency has made me hate more than LeBron.

James Dolan sent Isiah Thomas to make the New York Knicks' last pitch to LeBron James

You gotta know they are desperate when they send Isiah to seal the deal.

That makes me think about Pat Riley's motivational speaking tactics. I wouldn't be surprised if that was what made the difference, especially on an easy-to-manipulate young mind like LeBron's.

Pat Riley is kind of loathsome, but I like him anyway, I'll admit it.

He's the villain I secretly root for, I guess.

Or not so secretly now. Whatever.

Laz, most people seem to think that Lebron is far from being a person you can easily manipulate, but who knows.

Haha, I saw you posted in the thread and I thought to myself "It's gonna be a Lebron to the Bucks joke."

I love you, mikal.

really though, i think ESPN made up the Heat rumor. i think Lebron is going to stay in Cleveland because he's too concerned about his legacy, blah blah blah who cares.

i think Rodgers has too many weapons already. they say Jordy Nelson is going to be a stud this year, completely reinventing the white wide receiver.

lebron stays in cleveland. No way he has negative press from this, and the least amount of bad things said about him is if he picks Cleveland. ESPN and others will say he's a savior for staying in his home town. And there'll be some comparasion to him and nelson mandela or something about overcoming such tragedy.

If he picks another city on live tv, not just cleveland but other cities as well will think he's a dick. I don't think his ego can take people hating him.

Plus this way ESPN has something shocking to talk about for the next month

we'll soon find out. I tend to go against whatever ESPN says.
