    Default LeBron & DWade

    Do you think there is any chance that Donnie offers both of them contracts on July 1 & makes the case-

    "Fellas....this is a once in a lifetime chance. A chance to make history & do what has never been done before..."

    1. Will they bite?
    2. Would it work? LeBron, Wade, Gallinari, Chandler, possibly Curry but whatever other minimum vets to round out the roster. What kind of success do you see that team having?

    LeBron & Bosh seems to be the more sound strategy, but I am not sold that Bosh's max money wouldn't be better spent on David Lee AND another solid player.

    But LeBron AND Wade would be something too big to imagine. Imagine the hype the Knicks would get.

    I dont think we'll be seeing Edward McFlurry on the court again for us or any team

    Honestly, Lebron and Bosh seem like a much better combo. Lebron and Wade pretty much play the same way. They're both elite slashers who can't really shoot. They both need the ball in their hands at all times, and I don't think it would work out as well as some people are imagining. With Lebron + Bosh, we would get a post player to pair with Lebron, and forms a more well rounded team.

    won't happen, even though it sounds nice. The more realistic players we get will be LJ23 and Bosh ..

    I wouldn't be a huge proponent of Lebron/Dwade for several reasons:

    1) First of all, and this is probably the most obvious reason, I don't think any team could flourish with two players who have as big of an ego and who demand the ball as much as those two guys. I only think there is room for one of those guys on a team for a full 82 game season.

    2) This may be quite controversial and I may get flamed for writing it, but I'm not sold that giving D-Wade a max contract would be the best idea. Why not, you ask? Because the guy has a propensity to get injured and I fear his body breaking down. Remember, he will be 29 years old already next season (don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that is close to old or anything) and he has had a major knee injury and has a history of nagging injuries, in general. I'm not saying that I definately wouldn't offer Wade a max contract, I'm just saying that I would be hesitant to do it because I would fear his body breaking down.

    3) To me, the ultimate combination would be Lebron and Bosh. Dominant wing player + Dominant Low post player = gold. (Also, I think Bosh is a bit underrated. I really think he has a chance to be an all-time great power forward when all is said and done)

    Can you imagine if we get LBJ and Bosh. And Amar'e goes to Miami. Let us renew the rivalry.

    I must respectfully disagree, I'd strongly prefer James and Bosh to Stoudemire and Wade. I think Bosh could be considered a top 10 player maybe. I don't rate Amare as highly but maybe that's just me. Guys I'd rather have on my team than Amare:
    Kobe
    Lebron
    Wade
    Carmelo
    Durant
    C Paul
    D Williams
    and Chris Duhon

    They would decide who would be Jordan first couse they ain't that different.

    Anywayz i say DWade because he already has one a ring he has no presure whatsoever.

    Although him being from Chicago i think he will be the one going there and we end up with James and Amare. The Bulls with Wade and Rose would be one of the best teams of years to come.

    Lets revamp the rivalry with them insstead but this time aroung lets go get Lebron so we do have the best player in the planet not them (Sorry Ewing worshipers but Jordan was in a league of his own.)
