    If this is true, and I'd predict it is as Lebron wants rings, then Houston is the number 1 option by a billion miles.

    Howard
    Lebron
    Parsons
    Harden
    Beverely

    This lineup rapes any lineup hypothetial Cleveland, PHX, Miami etc can put together, let alone the realistic lineups they can put together.

    It makes sense if LeBron goes elsewhere at this time, because Kyle Lowry resigned with Toronto, and there is really no one out there that's gonna make them better than the Spurs other than Melo...

    Interesting.

    Looks like Riley's on a timeline.

    Wade/Bosh probably can't handle the truth. LeBron needs his space...

    Guys, I'm intrigued with Lebron as well, but I think we should just sneak in the backdoor and pounce on Bosh.

    Dust off the ole iPad, eh?

    I don't know if Riley has a history of being a drinker, but if he wasn't before now, he probably is now. He really needs to pull a rabbit out of his hat and do it soon or his whole team is going to self destruct.

    LeBron ignoring teams calls, big 3 meeting last week before all opting out. I seriously thought they all agreed on certain numbers and would've agreed on new contracts by now. Now we're hearing Bosh is being low-balled and LeBron's not taking a paycut. Heat have no cap space to spend on anyone that can seriously take the load off LeBron. The longer LBJ is a free agent the more likely him leaving is.



    Come on down Bron. Don't worry, Harden and Howard won't make you get a Mohawk.

    Can we sign LeBron for more than we Pay Howard?

    I think Miami will do a Sign and Trade - what will they want?
    H&H are off the list . . .
    So they would start with Parsons + stuff

    Can't wait to hear them spin Anthony Morrow and Alan Anderson.
