    Could this Lebron to Cleveland thing really happen?

    You know they are getting their hopes up. Will it come crashing down again?

    We'll see how excited he is about Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger when he has his sit-down with Riley tomorrow.

    Players can officially start signing today. Hopefully Melo and Lebron make their decisions soon so the rest of free agency can then play out...

    I don't blame Lebron one bit. You haven't heard 1 word from him or anyone in his camp. This is the media (mainly ESPN) absolutely freaking out over all of this....so annoying.

    The thing I don't get it the 10 day window in free agency where teams can just talk to players and verbally agree, but can't start signing until July 10th. That delay is the main reason for all of this drama....and ESPN acting like a bunch of asshole per the usual.

    Agreed. I can't see how he is doing anything wrong. Talking to potential employers about a career decision. Those things take some time. He is not out in the press saying anything.

    Yep. Everything we hear is coming from these "insiders" and all of their "sources". The only guy I believe is Wojnarowski from Yahoo....I don't believe a word from any of these other dopes. Hopefully it's all over in the next couple days.

    its supposed to come down soon...

    so in that case, handled well by LeBron. I will be a fan if he chooses Cleveland.

    Lance Stephenson is going to Charlotte. Pacers offered him 5yr/44M and he took 3yr/27M. Good riddance. I have a feeling he would have spent the last two years of his pacers contract smoking weed on Jamaal Tinsley's couch.

    How does Gordon Haywood get more money than Lance? Ridiculous!

    Because Gordon Hayward isn't fucking insane. Any contract longer than a year with Stephenson is a risk...

    As a Pacers fan, Lance was a combination of Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson, with a little Allen Iverson mixed in. Basically a hot girl that gets you into fights, could potentially stab you, but has an ego that sucks you in but wastes your money.

    Also, any announcer that ever refered to Ron Artest as Metta World Peace during a broadcast should be kicked in the nuts by JCVD.

    10th anniversary of "The Malice at The Palace" today.

    10th anniversary of Ron Artest's kitten-sized brain and Stephen Jackson's crazy-infested brain ruining the Pacer's best chance of winning it all in Reggie's final season.

    I remember watching that and just being stunned for 30 minutes ... and then remembering I just paid $200 for the NBA season pass and frantically calling DirecTV to see if I could cancel and get a refund.

    I still stuck with the team but eventually went into a seven year shunning of all things NBA after Stephen Jackson got run over by a car in the back ally of a strip club while firing his Glock in the air.

    The NBA really needs to work on how they schedule. The Warriors play 2 games in a week and now get to start on a 5 game in 7 day road trip. They really cant spread the games out better than that?

    Saw an interesting trade proposal today that I pray doesn't happen. It was just a standard espn article going over what if trades only thank god. The trade was Cleveland sending Love (rumors are persisting he may not resign with them now) to GSW for Green and Lee. My response is noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!. The Warriors are having their most successful regular season ever. You can't take the glue guy away for someone that hasn't done shit on a winning team before. It sounds tantalizing until the playoffs come and defense rules as the games slow down. Green not Bogut makes their league leading D go. If this was a normal Warriors team that was plodding along just above .500 I could see it. To do it now as they are kicking the crap out of everyone would be ridiculous. 8 straight wins over 10 points now.
