    I believe he is the guy that started the "Happy times" thread and clutch locked it up.

    He started a thread a few days ago called Happy Times. It was his 2nd post on Clutchfans but he has been a member since 2011. Cant remember exactly what he said but he was implying that we were going to sign someone but he wouldnt say who. People started thinking he was trolling so Clutch locked the thread after a day or 2.

    Welp, It's about time to start the day. Who's ready for more speculation?

    The big 3 will end up together, we won't land bosh. But the important question is- should we want him?

    Bosh doesn't necessarily make us a contender. This team needs to improve on defense, and Bosh isn't a significant upgrade to that end. Moreover, he's no longer a plus rebounder or a post player. In the playoffs, you need tenacity, grit and defense. A lineup with harden, bosh and dwight won't exactly terrify the opposing team's offensive gameplan.

    Rondo makes this team much better than Bosh would. I'm not saying Rondo is a better player than Bosh (although it's possible he might be at this point), but his contributions would have greater impact than adding another scorer. Boozer, for the right price, would be a great pickup as well.

    But Boozer is a much much worse defender than bosh. Boozer doesn't even close games in Chicago because Gibson is a better defender. Bosh would be a great add but that's just my opinion.

    And there you have it, he's going back to Miami no doubt. Lebron just wanted to feel needed by forcing Riley to do something or else I will go to Cleveland so he's got them begging and bringing out everybody they can to persuade him to stay. The Cleveland being a real option was all posturing.

    Lebron is going back to Cleveland.

    Bosh, I'm assuming, would sign with Houston then, but I don't know what he'd do. The smart thing would be to sign with Houston but its possible Miami lands several good players in Lebrons place.

    Regardless, Lebron is 100% gone to Cleveland.

    Bosh's defense isn't a significant upgrade over TJones'? Are you sure you've seen his elite PnR defense?

    Also please don't tout Boozer as a solution to get "grittier". No one will take you seriously.

    Just putting this out there in case others don't know and ask why Bosh won't be at the meeting - he's on vacation in Sri Lanka.

    Oh Im sure.

    My brother works for Nike in the upper echelons of their marketing team somewhere, and said they are trying to integrate a 'revive Cleveland' campaign with lebron and manziel.

    I told him that doesn't mean anything, but he told me that Lebron has already notified those at Nike of his decision.

    Bosh was like, "Bron and Wade never take me out anyways, guess i'll just go to India, bet they won't even notice i'm gone" :p

    Judging from his wife's twitter, looks like they are on a world tour. No wonder there has been such poor communication in between everybody
