    I wonder if they would trade us him for LeBron. Not saying I would want that I just wonder if they would say ok.

    Lebron is worth too much money. He is in Cleveland for Life. This is very different than the Garnett situation, for the simple fact that Lebron is a money machine for ownership.

    if the lakers could trade a 30 year old Kobe Bryant for a 22 year old "Michael Jordan" (<--Not) im sure they would do it in a heart beat, James isnt in Cleveland for life, James is in cleveland until he wants the iverson/now kobe, treatment and picks what team he wants to play for.

    Nobody will be able to match Clevelands offer. He only leaves if he wants a bigger market, and less money, and there seems no indication of that to me.

    only way the cavs will be able to keep james, is, they wont be able to resign baisically anyone til his free agent year, and they still have to win with out Varajao, Pavlovic, Gooden, and maybe hughes in a few years?

    i dont see that happening

    teams like New York and othe big market teams will offer him more money, whered you get the idea the cavs were a big market team?

    New York is gonna have the best chance to land him, but thats if lebron wants to go to a "?" organization and if he wants to leave his hometown.

    By signing for only three years, Lebron will make more money overall by taking advantage of his status as a seventh-year player in '10. By then he'll be allowed to take up 30 percent of his team's cap room, a five percent increase from what sixth-year players are allowed to swallow. I don't see how any team can compete with that.
