    Hinrich will be a good presence for the Wizards.

    As for the Bulls, I can see this back firing and we sign no one of note.

    I can't imagine that. If I were LeBron (or any of the top guys), I would have Chicago and Miami (if Wade does indeed stay put) as my top destinations. I think it's arguable which of those is the better situation. Wade is a stud obviously, but Rose is younger and could possibly be even better with a few more years under his belt. Chicago also has better complimentary pieces in place (Noah, Deng if he stays). What does Miami really have outside of Wade? B-Easy? Ehhh, I'll take the Bulls if I'm Lebron. But hey, even if they miss on him, they have plenty of other guys they could lure that would put them at contender status.

    Honestly, I think the Bulls with LeBron are no better than the Cavs with LeBron. Call me crazy but if the Clippers had LeBron that wouldn't be so bad. They probably have the most talent out of any of those teams (unless one of them signs Wade or Bosh). Assuming Griffin is at least a good player. Just my opinion, maybe I just like Baron Davis and Eric Gordon more than I should.

    Lebron should stay in Cleveland. No other place has the talent he has there. He'll probably jet to NY, still.. but I think those are the only 2 places he's considering.

    Wade makes sense in Chicago. Hometown kids with he and Rose.

    Hinrich wasn't very good, so the Bulls did ok dumping him for cap space.

    I agree, but being no better than the Cavs with LeBron is better than the Bulls have been in a long, long time.

    Wade trashed Chicago about a month ago, he ain't going.

    My wish list

    1. LeBron (as much as I hate him)
    2. Bosh
    3. Wade

    You a Bulls fan? If so, how's Hinrich on defense and as a 2 guard?

    Since I don't actually have a team and a couple of my cousins are Bulls fans, I generally cheer for them.

    Rockets draft Patterson out of Kentucky. I like that he is lean and agressive. Looks almost as talented as Cousins and has no body fat. Sweet. Good scorer. good defense. Suprised he is available this late. Good job rockets. A-.

    Yao/Patterson/Anderson
    Scola/Hill/Hayes
    Ariza/Battier/Jefferies/Harris
    Martin/Budinger/Taylor
    Brooks/lowry

    Stat of the day: the Cleveland Cavaliers had the same point differential per 48 minutes as the Washington Wizards while LeBron was on the bench. So, essentially, LeBron took the Cavs from being a top 5 worst team in the league to the top record and top 5 overall teams.

    Yea man, that Cleveland team is awesome.

    Wanna make a bet on how many games they win next year if LeBron leaves?
