    i just got word Lebron is staying in Cleveland for the rest of his career. said he wouldnt dare go on live TV to disrespect his own team.

    ESPN is gonna be mad, cause theres really no news story if Lebron stays in Cleveland.

    Lakers fans WANT him to join the heat.

    The last "big 3" got 1 ring. Lakers got 2 since they joined.

    Bring the next bandwagon squad on.

    Easy. Too many mismatches.

    1. Is Chris Bosh going to be their center? If so- they'd get dominated in the paint. Chris Bosh is like Pau Gasol. Playing him at center is asking for a beating.

    2. Who would guard Bynum if Bosh was their center? Easy work.

    3. Kobe matches with Wade.

    4. Artest can lock down Lebron.

    ... and who else does the Heat have? No one. No one to make a difference at the other 2 spots as starters, and no one on the bench.

    I hope Lebron does go to the Heat. This has 'disaster' written all over it. Watching Wade and Lebron for about 40 games will be fun... watching them argue the rest of the season would be even more fun.

    The best part: He has a better team/talented cast in Cleveland, yet due to the names Wade/Bosh people will think he finally has the help he needed. (even though he's had plenty help before)

    I agree to a point.

    Lets say LeBron goes to Miami, who's their center? If it's Bosh who's their power forward Beasley?! Who's coming off their bench? The cheapest of cheapest players plus the 3 guys the heat took in the 2nd round? Not gonna cut it. Would the be the best in the East? Probably but who else is gonna compete? The Orlando Magic? The now even older Boston Celtics? Ha!

    This would be awful for the NBA. The talent is spread way to thin anyway. Sure there are bad owners/GMs out there but what is a team like Golden State or Minnesota supposed to do? They don't have luck in the draft and free agents don't want to go there, what can you realistically do? Now you have maybe the 3 best players in the eastern conference on one team... that's boring.

    it wont be boring, i'd love to see the Trio cream teams every night. this would be the first time 3 stars this big was on 1 team. it's time it happened at least once in the NBA. the highlight reels would be awesome.
