    Default LEBRON: new york loves me.

    Responding to a question about the boos Wizards' fans showered on him during Thursday night's loss in Washington, LeBron James had this comment: "I'm hated in all 30 cities. Uh, 29. They love me in Cleveland. They hate me everyplace else. Uh, I forgot about New York. They love me there, too."

    LeBron rejecting the Knicks in 2010 is the best thing for this club if you really think about it.

    We need to hurl boos at someone....on other team.

    Something that'll give Knicks fans and players more unity and to play with something that the team has lacked this decade.

    Pride.

    The Garden fans are too divided these days.

    One minute we boo our own players on intros next minute we're chanting MVP for Kobe.

    WTF has the Garden turned into.

    LeBron fits the bill as the perfect person to boo and hate LOL.

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=6 width="100%"><TBODY><TR class=" altrow1 "><TD class=topictitle id=MS_52568662>Mike Francesca and a WILDCAT booster report that Mike D'Antoni was talked to about becoming ARIZONA WILDCATS coach last year, again a few months ago, and NY NBC Mike Francesca says that he has heard that D'Antoni may be throwing his name in the coaching circle at Arizona.


    - he said New York isn't the place for him, and that he really misses being around the state of arizona, and would thrive in coaching basketball in the NCAA.

    -also mentioned D'ANTONI could become the next John Calipari because of his offensive philosophy and would charm recruits with his personality.

    -New York Knicks are aware of ARIZONA discussion and believes the KNICKS would let him go.

    -multiple UA BOOSTERS have been pursuing him since February



    -----------------------

    ARIZONA BOOSTER that I know said that D'antoni loves Tucson, and that all UA administrators would go for this deal. The only problem is timing and that Arizona might not have the time to wait untill the end of NBA season.

    Funny cuz today somebody told me the truest statement I've heard in awhile.

    "The only thing worse than the Knicks are Knicks fans"

    But I dunno...the loudest crowd noise I ever ever heard in basketball. Has to be hands down the Horry buzzer beater.

    I'm not sure what i want him to do right now, if he's more prone to come here after winning a championship then I hope he wins one so he can feel good bout leaving...if he needs to get knocked out in the first round this season and next to make him want to leave more then i hope that happens...

    people need to stop bs-ing around with all this 'we don't want LB, we need someone to hate!' and start coming to there damn senses that he's the only one that can bring this team out of the dumpster and into contention...yes right now he's a good player on an opposing team, we shouldn't be cheering him on, but quit acting like getting him wouldn't be the biggest thing this franchise ever did....i hope whatever makes him want to leave whether thats winning or not happens so he can come the the city of dreams and give NY something to cheer about in basketball.

    Relax. LeBron is not going anywhere.

    I'm done falling for his marketing scheme. That's just his ploy to up the bidding and asking price for him. Not to mention, he's keeping his name and fanbase buzzing everywhere for a potential landing on their favorite team.

    It doesn't hurt LeBron 0, it only makes him richer. In fact, it hurts us even more because come 2010 he will not sign with anyone besides CLE.

    This is the same treatment MJ deployed on the league.

    LBJ is no MJ but he sure does like to jock him in everything Mike did.

    Really...Chris Bosh and Amare are the only guys that will get moved whether by trade or free agency.

    D. Wade = Miami's greatest player ever. Is there even a question? They got him resigned.

    LBJ = Cleveland's greatest player ever. Is there even a question? They got him resigned.

    Let's stop dreaming....

    well hopefully you're wrong...LeBron isn't staying in Ohio his whole career, just isn't going to happen..no way he's going to be the first billionaire athlete playing for the Cavs...and it's quite obvious that's what he wants from this game..yes right now he wants a ring, doesn't have one yet so thats his top priority, but he's going to get one no matter where he's at...from the 60 min. interview and everything else, you can tell he wants to be bigger then the game itself more then anything, and coming to NY is going to make that happen..i think there's a pretty good chance he'll come here..if he does, it's not going to be because his team in Clev. is bad, or thinks he can easily win a championship in NY, it's because he knows what playing in center of the country will do for himself once he brings bball in NY to the top..

    if he doesn't come obviously we need to get some other players, you don't need LeBron star status player to win, as evidence by the Celtics, but you have to have a few semi stars.. Amare doesn't fit into that catagory for me anymore...he isn't a go to guy down 2 with 10 left..we need a buzzer beater go to guy...i don't think Bosh is even that nowadays, i mean look how bad they are in Toronto...but we'll see what happens when the time comes..as long as we keep cuttin our salary the possibilities will be good..i'd love to get a Dirk on our team...but my eyes are on LeBron..i think there's a good chance he'll be playin at the Garden...he isn't doing this as some hollow publicity stunt, the dude doesn't need the money, or should i say, he doens't need to pretend like he'd leave in order for Clev. to give him as much as he wants...it ain't about the money in that perspective...he can get paid as much as he wants from a team no matter where he goes...it's where else that money will come where he decides to play... i can't even imagine what it'd be like with LeBron in NY...the Knicks being a team on the same level as other NY sports...seeing the Knicks on National Tv / TNT every other night, it's going to be like nothing i've ever seen with Knicks basketball if it happens

    Don't mean to pick on you but please elaborate as to how NY will help him become bigger than the game.

    I am the #1 LeBron enthusiast to come here but I'm keeping it rational.

    1) He's already the biggest player in the NBA next to Kobe.

    2) His endorsement deals will not grow bigger in an economic landslide. Being in NY will not do anything. He's already everywhere you look and hear basketball around here (NYC.)

    If MJ would have come to NY, would it have been any bigger? Not really, cuz he was already the face of the league.

    3) He doesn't need NY unless he's looking to establish himself as an absolute traitor. Plus our team will improve by 2010 but not by much. Does he really want to trade down roster talent?

    4) He's at home in Ohio where the Cavs have literally changed everything about their franchise for LeBron. If he'd turn his back on them, that would forever linger with him throughout his career. I don't think he wants to keep answering those questions. ESPECIALLY IN THE NY MEDIA.

    He's in Cleveland. So what? It's not Vancouver we're talking about. Cleveland is still a pretty large urban city like Chicago like New York. LeBron doesn't need NY.

    NY needs LeBron.

    That being said, LeBron is not going anywhere.

    I don't buy that Lebron will choose Cleveland over NY based on the fact that he has a better chance to win a championship there. What does Cleveland have to look forward to from 2010+, they will only have Williams, Varajao and West guaranteed to be there. Cleveland has just as good a chance at adding a "Scottie Pippen" with the cap room they will have as the knicks do.

    The only question is how loyal is Lebron to Cleveland? They really have nothing to offer him more than NY except the comfort in having played there his whole career.

    You are 100% right though scribbles that the NBA and NY needs Lebron more than Lebron needs NY.

    I don't think though that Lebron needs Cleveland more than he needs NY. I think his decision will ultimately be whats best for the sport and that is him being a hero in NY.

    People say that Lebron is already everywhere, and being in NY wouldn't make a difference. I disagree. To us basketball fans, maybe it doesn't make a difference because we already know him very well from watching the NBA. But people who don't watch sports barely know who he is. Lebron wants to reach that level where everyone knows his name, even people who have nothing to do with the NBA. He can't do that in Cleveland, because Cleveland sucks. They have nothing but the rock and roll hall of fame. It's probably one of the most uninteresting spots in the USA. If he were to come to NY, he would be in movies, commercials, his face would really be all over the place. There is a huge difference between him playing in Cleveland and him in NY.

    what are the chances of him not opting out of his contract, spend 1 more year there and then sign with the Knicks in 2010/2011 off season with Curry and Jefferies contracts expiring.
