Free Agency

All the talk has been centered on Lebron James, where will he go? Well I’ve been saying since last year that if he does not stay in Cleveland he would join Wade in Miami. Where else would he be able to join a seasoned vet who in dependable during crunch time. They both are unselfish team oriented who only want to win. If you notice on that list that there are only three people with rings and two of those are Celtics. The other is Dwyane Wade. Yes I am pro Wade. He is CLUTCH. Name two others on that list that are and you win a cigar.
Maybe LaBron did have a major distraction during the playoffs. But he is a big boy now and there are some things that he just can’t do anything about, and there are those he can. If he felt he could have…he should have and been done with it and moved on. You get my drift?
When all the movement is complete I would not be surprised to see Miami to have made out very well. If he does not make it to Miami, look for Bosh to be Wade’s new sidekick. They would also be able to get Joe Johnson at a good price. He lost Millions with that performance in the playoffs and then had the gall to follow that up with an attitude. He eliminated himself from a max level contract, which he didn’t warrant in the first place.
Carlos Boozer has been begging the Heat to take him but he is undersized. He has game, heart and intensity, but he is smallish. With Amare’ there has been mutual interest but the Suns have first dibs and are preparing to offer him a Max deal. Make no mistake of it Amare’ is good, very good. You just have to wonder if his stats are slightly inflated because of Nash’s ability to get him the ball. Besides defense is definitely not his forte.
But it is his ability to run the court that may land him in New York. Coach D’
Antoni know his assets and his limitations from their time together in Phoenix. They have the money to pay him and another max level free agent like Nowitzski. Amare’ can play the center position while Nowitzski runs the wing.
I like Chris Bosh in Miami if LaBron does not land there. I’ll take Bosh above Amare’ any day. He’s a better rebounder, better scorer, passer and defender. When it’s all said and done, some of these guys will remain with their present teams and others will team-up in pursuit of their championship dream.
