    So let me guess...

    DWade will work out for Lebron (he had to see it with his own eyes)...he will be impressed.

    My main worry now is that Bosh will follow LeBron like a puppy dog all the way to Cleveland.

    They don't have any room for him.

    Quick question...sorry if it's ignorant of me, but...

    Doesn't the hard cap of $81 million only come into to play if a team uses their tax payers exception? So if we sign bosh with our cap space and then parsons with his bird rights then we don't even have the exception available so the hard cap won't apply. Am it right, is there something I'm missing, or is it completely off base?

    Neither do we...they can make room. They have pretty nice assets last I checked to move pretty much whoever they want.

    With the report coming out that LBJ is 90% headed to Cleveland, looks like Morey may have played his cards right this off season.

    Chris Bosh is actually a good defender, playing out of position in Miami wouldn't show it but next to Dwight you would see it a lot

    The delivery is different, but the situation is the same IMO. Lots of build up, lots of tension, lots of drama and everyone forced to sit around, waiting to find out what his plans are. I'll say this, if he doesn't go back to Cleveland those people are going to lose it. From what I've heard and read they truly believe he's coming back.

    Thompson, a bench player and a first round pick in the mid to late 20s doesn't seem any better than a Parsons + pick package for Love. Why would Thompson be considered superior to Parsons?

    That or a s&t triggers the apron, so no, you're not really missing anything

    No they can't. They're most likely trading for Love. He's a already said he will sign an extension with Cleveland if Lebron is there.

    If they have the assets to trade for love then how don't they have assets to attach to players they are trying to dump?

    My point is not what is "most likely" to happen, it's that if Lebron wants bosh there and bosh wants to be there, Cleveland can make it happen. And IMO, pretty easily

    All we have to do is drop Lin, they'd have to part with good young assets. I don't think they'd want to unless Lebron says it's a package deal. Which I don't think he would.

    Fair enough....

    You do what you gotta do to get Lebron. For our sake I hope it's not a package deal bc I want bosh here.

    Dear Chris
    It is time you make a decision.
    Parsons (your future partner is waiting for you)
    Give us a minute between one elephant and another elephant and MAKE your Choice. Stop thinking in Lebron (he is not thinking in you) and start thinking in your new team.

    Thank you
