    Default Lebron petitions for new number = not coming to Knicks

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    He wouldn't have to petition for a new number if he was leaving Cleveland. Plus, #23 is retired in Chicago and Miami.


    I say f*ck him.

    Here's the plan:

    Step1.)Retain Lee's Bird Rights and retain the MLE.
    Step2.)Sign Joe Johnson.
    Step3.)Sign and trade Lee for Bosh + Calderon - we would still be under the cap so the salaries would not need to match. Toronto gets All-Star player in return for losing Bosh (better than nothing) and gets huge cap relief by getting rid of Calderon (they want to move his salary)
    Step4.)Trade Curry's expiring contract to New Orleans for Emeka Okafur (huge cap relief for Hornets)
    Step5.)Use MLE to resign TMac + other players (preferably a backup big and another shooter)

    PG-Calderon
    SG-Johnson
    SF-Gallo or Chandler
    PF-Bosh
    C-Okafur

    w/ TMac, Douglas, and Gallo or Chandler off the bench.


    And beat Lebron in the Conferance Finals next year!!

    It could just mean he doesn't know where he'll end up. Or maybe he's smart and he's doing this to throw people off.

    LMAO whole game last night I was thinking there goes any glimmer of hope Lebron signs in NY, who on earth would want to unless the money from endorsements alone is enough. I have pride in my team of course, but realistically times are different, in past generations I think there was more draw to great traditions and MSG would be a great draw, for today's players I don't think it's as big of a deal, and not enough to offset joining a team that generally looks like they don't care enough to play hard. If all we needed was a scorer to be a late game go to guy no problem, but we need a ton, hardly anyone hustled, was able to pick up loose balls, rebound, defend, anything. Seemed we had crisco on our hands and lead boots on our feet. Horrible to watch, and with the 2 7 foot plus guys gone in Shaq and Z I thought Lee would be effective... ouch, I thought he basically got bitched in every facet of the game, I like Lee alot but even he last night got killed by Hickson and Ugly, no excuse

    you're looking wayyy too far into this... you know what really happened is some clowns in Cleveland probably just told him he had to file for the number change now without telling him the rest of it.

    Also, the reason the cavs go is solely because of Lebron. Nearly any other team in the NBA could be in the same position as Cleveland with him on their team, he really is unreal. I still believe he is coming no doubt.

    I'm gonna say what i've been saying for a long time now, I don't like Lebron's antics on the bench, it just shows he has no respect for his opponents, so bottom line for me is: get Wade and Bosh or Amar'e and rule the East!

    He's changing numbers because Toney Douglas wears #23

    Agreed. I'm coming around to this idea. I'm starting to not like him. Although if he signs with the Knicks it would be amazing but part of me would like nothing more than beating him in the playoffs.

    Haha. He wouldn't have to petition the league to change his number if he were changing teams. Good try though.

    It was just a joke...

    But this could mean a lot of things. Who knows. Maybe if T-Mac decides to ball for the next month and score 30 PPG he'll re-think it all

    Default hey

    you know what..**** lebron, this dude only comes to new york to humiliate us!
    I'd say sign bosh (if possible) and small contract players like S-Rod and Travis Outlaw and save the rest of the money for Carmelo or Durant with Al Horford

    2011: s-rod, t-douglas, chandler, gallo, t.outlaw, carmelo, bosh, horford =2011 champs!

    That's one area of LeBron's game that I don't like. For someone who hasn't won anything in the NBA, LeBron acts like he owns the league.

    I'd take Wade over LeBron in a heartbeat.

    Sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but this is and always has been a ploy to sell more jerseys.

    Even if it did mean anything, it comes from the fact he stated earlier in the season that he doesn't feel anyone should wear 23 but Jordan and would like the NBA to retire the number.

    Let's not get carried away here.

    Theres lots of reasons:

    * He hasn't decided where he's going, just playing it safe
    * Sell more jerseys
    * Create more hype
    * More media for him

    etc etc etc

    Wasn't lebron(or wade?) the one that wanted the league to retire MJ's number out of respect???

    Maybe he's doing it cause of that...

    having lebron would be one of the worst things, fans would be seperated from knicks fans and lebron fans real knicks fans watch there team through out we dont need all these "nba" or current day lakers fans becoming knicks fans because they look the best in the east because we have someone like lebron plus like someone else jsut said lebron does act like a child with all his pre game b/s and everything else we dont need that in new york we need a real team not lebron
