    Miami will be back to being a irrelevant franchise very soon it seems.

    There's no way that Lebron and his can be this daft and oblivious to have moving trucks outside his home on the DAY BEFORE FREE AGENTS CAN OFFICIALLY SIGN if he weren't leaving.

    Avoid backlash from fans, get out of Miami with all your stuff before announcing decision to leave? Sounds smart.

    Ahh the Florida Marlins and the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NBA. The loyalest of fans live in Southern Florida.

    Wait a minute, even if Lebron leaves Miami.

    Why wouldn't Bosh stay in Miami then? He already on record saying he likes living there. And without Lebron, its obvious he's the number 1 option. Plus no Lebron=more cap space for Miami to throw at Bosh instead.

    Exactly. I'd say Lebron is as good as gone from Miami.

    Either that, or he's literally surrounded by idiots.

    They can't. If Lebron signs, Cleveland won't have enough cap room for Bosh.

    I'm sure the Titanic had a lot more open seats on it as it was sinking, doesn't mean it was a good time to sit down.

    Go to Houston, who's offering the max, continue playing for a contender or stay in Miami and hope they get better players that arent over the hill?

    I think cyberx is dead wrong and that the Deng call is fallback in case we lose Parsons - not Bosh

    Impossible. Because the Rockets require capspace to sign Deng. If they sign(or S&T for) Bosh, they'll have no capspace left.

    How is he dead wrong? He just stated what it is. Rockets reached out to Deng. Nothing more, nothing less. :confused:

    If we lose Parsons and get Bosh then we can't afford Deng. That's why Parsons bird right are ao important

    max offer to another team that we don't want to match and push against the threshold. give a shorter term deal to deng with a slightly lower number that allows more flexibility

    Yeah, Parsons is a RFA, Morey just isn't going to let him go. He is an asset. Morey will even overpay for Parsons. And if Morey needs to trade Parsons later he will. But he won't let an asset go just because he is afraid of cap implications. He can wiggle himself out of that.

    if that was the case there would be no need for him to opt out of his contract that would have paid him big money for the next two years

    Would Miami even want Bosh back? To me it seems like for them it's LBJ or tank-town (keep Wade around of course).
