The GREATNESS Of Lebron

This media idea that Lebron makes everyone around him better is well, just notion. In reality no so if you analyze the before the trio and now.

Before they colluded to Miami, Wade wass considered better than Lebron and Bosh was an excellent power forward with an excellent post up game.

Turn the clock forward to now, Wade and Bush are stock in no men's land if you look at their dilemma.

Wade - gave up so much, took a pay cut and hand the keys of his to Lebron. Yes, injuries have prevent him from being the player that he once was but Lebron's ball dominance has made his case worse. Moreover, he now has the responsibility of managing the salary cap of the Miami Heat if they want to compete. Thus, he is obligated to take a pay cut in the twilight of his career. With his cartridge less knee he is not getting a new contract in the NBA or may be a good one. Off the court, he has been in and out of the family court that def has lowered his bank accounts. Now, Riley wants him to take a pay cut for the good of the team... Though decision!!!

Bosh - He was close to 20 and 10 guy in Toronto with a very good post up and mid range game. Now with the spread offense and give it to Lebron to go on one he has become a 3 point specialist. That is two much to swallow. He also has to sacrifice and take a pay cut to feed the ongoing gig

Lebron- He has benefit from the trio, he won two chips, final MVPs, regular season MVPs, and the media thinks that he is a KING. Now he is opting out and may move to greener pastures and leave his so called friends hanging. Again, he is looking for the next gig through FA.


Please provide your feedback.

" If the Celtics can't acquire Kevin Love, they could trade away Rajon Rondo and continue the rebuilding process, according to the Boston Herald."

If only we could make it happen....

Lebron and Melo opts in. Plays the season out. Both on the Knicks 2015-2016.

@Tony Fonseca Miami had its run, and now the realization of money they let slip now that they may not be in contention for some time along with seeing players like Melo,Love etc get more money than them

honestly Melo's Brand game is bigger in NY than it's ever been.

@KnickelusKnickleby @Tony Fonseca  Yes it is. And he would be foolish to do what Wade and Bosh did and become a forgotten man. He should stay in here.

But there is no question that Lebron is heartless. Wade is probably very upset right now...

@BiggieTKB @barnaby87 Doesn't look like they do.  The only thing I question is if we have the piece for Rondo, which we may, but may have to throw the kitchen sink at them.  Assuming they want something along the lines of Chandler, Shump, Prig and potentially both THJ and a 1st for Rondo and G. Wallace (with his bad contract).  I feel like Houston would be the most likely front-runners for him.

@barnaby87 @BiggieTKB  I don't think Phil will be going for Rondo. Does not fit his profile because Rondo cannot shoot even if his life depends on it.

@Tony Fonseca @barnaby87 @BiggieTKB That's true.  Then again, he could run the offense and get to the hoop like nobody's business.  But agreed, you do have to have question if he's worth it especially in the triangle
