From CNNSI.com's Truth and Rumors page for Friday:

The Cavaliers instability is not lost on the players. "We lost our coach, we get new players, we get new ownership, and now Pax might be getting fired," Lebron James said. "We just stopped playing our No. 1 point guard for no reason, and as a team we didn't know why. The chemistry has all been shifted." In two seasons, James could force a sign-and-trade deal as a restricted free agent. His shoe contract with Nike would pay him more if he played in New York, Boston or Los Angeles.
-- New York Times

A former Cavs employee declared, "When [Dan] Gilbert's group bought the Cavaliers I thought it was 75-25 LeBron would extend his contract at the appropriate time. In five weeks that percentage has dropped to 40-60. If they don't make the playoffs, LeBron might very well demand a trade."
-- New York Post

To both of these I say, "Ha! If LeBron's upset about Cleveland's front office, I dare him to try and get a maximum-dollar contract extension out of Donald Sterling, or languish on a Knicks team that isn't going anywhere anytime soon." And you know GM Kobe's gonna nix the idea of LeBron on the team because he's insecure about being the second-best player on his team.

That would seem to leave Boston as a probable destination for LeBron... if, in fact, there's any truth to this scenario at all. Any thoughts?

If LeBron ends up in Boston, someone in this area must have made an incredible deal with the devil for 3 Super Bowls, a World Series and the Cavaliers to bring in a mental pigmy as owner to trade LeBron. I understood New York and L.A. as part of 'shoe company pays extra money and LeBron takes mid-level exception to bigger market', but Boston? Not complaining. Off the top of my head, if LeBron were to shoot his way out of town this summer: sign and trade where the Cavalier center gets max dollars with the C's, LeBron, and a couple of bad contracts go to Boston for Pierce, Al Jefferson, Mark Blount, Tony Allen and a few #1 picks might work cap wise. Now, if Cleveland were really stupid, and trading LeBron would qualify in the monumentally stupid category, maybe the Celtics could keep Jefferson and send Kendrick Perkins in the package instead. Never going to happen, but this is probably as close as my mind has come to #17 going to the rafters in about 13 years.

Ever get worried the C's will eventually run out of numbers to retire?

I think he was talking about the Celtics' 17th NBA Championship.



"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning

Oh... d'oy! So, wait, when the Celtics made to the East Finals a couple years ago, you didn't have any faith in 'em?

Hell, I didn't. That team had no business making the second round, much less the conference finals. This year's team, however _ assuming that the Heat suddenly disappear from the face of the earth _ could be verrrrrrrry interesting in the playoffs. I really like the way they're looking right now when Antoine is healthy. Plus, we could see the return of THE SHIMMY~!

As for No. 17, it's already spoken for. As is No. 23, so LeBron would need to find a new number.

I saw the two teams in the Western Conference Finals (Lakers and Kings in the '02 classic series) and realized if Boston were to get past Jersey in the Finals, the best they could hope for was to get 2 games in the series so the title wouldn't be celebrated on their court. Sacramento was a hideous match-up for them, and the Lakers had Shaq and Kobe when both still cared about winning.
