I just listened to an interview Lebetard had with Pat Riley yesterday who seems to be implying they are going to be trying to sign Lebron next season too saying they are the only team with room to sign 2 max contract players (not sure how accurate that is).

Interesting fact, in Canada Mountain Dew doesn't contain caffeine as only dark soft drinks like Colas or Root Beer can have caffeine added to them.
Without caffine, mountain dew has to be the worlds worst drink.

Michael Beasley watch:Beasley got off to a good start last night going for 21pts on 9 of 14 from the floor in an easy Heat win (over the Knicks). He also did not do anything crazy. More to follow.
I hope he turns it around. Mental illness in sports isn't treated enough, or openly and honestly.

Speaking of the Knicks. They should be the worst team in the league this year and it's pretty disgusting what they are doing in the faint hope that they might sign Lebron next year.
Man the Knicks screwed themselves. When they started down this salary dumping/sign lebron path, it was before the economy crashed. They thought they were going to be able to sign 2 max payroll players, if the cap grew like it did in the past. Now, instead of the salary cap growing, it has shrunk for the first time ever, a couple seasons in a row, and that just ends the Knicks franchise for pretty much ever.

Thanks for the link.I think anybody who has read any of my posts knows that I think NBA refs cheat so it wouldn't surprise me if everything in that book is true. It also wouldn't surprise me if a bunch of it is made up and twisted by a scumbag.

LOL pretty much this. I have absolutely no idea how much of that is going to end up being true... the only thing that would surprise me is if NONE of it was true. Also the NBA has squashed the book with lawsuit threats to random house or who ever's publishing it, and it's no longer coming out.

I am also going to call Shaq "Shaqatross" all season, because he's an albatross hanging around lebron's neck.

The trade itself wasn't a bad one. Ben Wallace, Sasha Pavlovic along with a second-round pick in the 2010 draft and $500,000 in cash for Shaq and they don't have any obligations to him beyond this year.The problem is that the Cavs front court is just so damn slow. If you have Shaq you have to do something else to get some better fits to complement him and LeBron. I think they're going to have to move Ilgauskas and his expiring contract if they want to have any chance this year.Now I'm not saying that Shaq and LeBron are going to be a great fit either together and you can't really be sure what Shaq is going to give you over a complete season.

http://hoopshype.com...aries/miami.htmMiami has the big contracts of O'Neal, Richardson and Haslem coming off the books after this season so they for sure will have the cap space to take on a max contract free agent. I think the second one they are referring to would be them resigning Wade.

It would be so easy for them to cheat too... The over/under on games would be very simple to beat in my opinion... Think about it... the refs have the power to slow the game down, speed it up. they can control overtime in certain situations.Imagine the player props that they could do.... LeBron over 29.5 tonight? guess who goes to the line 14 times, and has only 2 fouls against for the game... With all the offshore accounts... litterally dozens that they could have.... they could be laying 100k on one game easy.

Assuming the salary cap contracts a little bit, Miami will be the only team with the ability to sign 2 max guys. Lebron? That seems like a fantasy. Wade and Bosh seems very likely however.Beasley watch: 12 and 9 against the Pacers in another easy win. So far so good. He even got to the line a little bit last night.

Wasn't there something about Lebron going to New Jersey also so he could play for Jay-Z? Would work, New Jersey doesn't have anyone.I was looking through the rosters on yahoo, and they have the players salary next to their names. I didn't go through all the teams but lol at Jason Kidd, Jermaine O'Neal, and Iverson getting paid 21 mil this year.

If the Nets get Lebron they will be the favorite in the East. They have some good young players who could follow a leader, including a guy who can score on the block.

Beasley Watch: A rough 3 for 12 shooting night but Haslem comes off the bench to save the day. Heat move to 3-0, Beasley looks like a solid B so far.

I think anything could happen with him and his career right now so I am tracking it. The title of this thread says random basketball observations. Embrace it.

Who would play defense? Brook Lopez? Yi? I don't think they would be better than Orlando or Boston if they had Lebron right now.I like Douglas-Roberts though.

That would be the question, although I would be confident they could be at least an average defensive team, which is pretty much all they would need to be. They would be right there.
