    Default Lebron said what???? WTF!

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Ric Bucher of ESPN quoted a league source on Thursday when he said that LeBron James might be more interested in coming to the Knicks if they have Hawks' shooting guard Joe Johnson. "If it's LeBron James they want," Bucher said, "a league source says the Hawks' shooting guard is a very good place to start."
    Not sure why Lebron would want an aging Johnson over Bosh but I say give him what he wants. Maybe he knows that JJ does not get a max deal so it leaves room for other acquisitions. Maybe he thinks as he gets older he will be more of a post up player and would like to kick it out to an elite shooter like Johnson.

    I would sign Lebron and let him know he can chose who he wants...anything to get Lebron is worth it IMO even paying JJ more than he is worth.

    What would the salaries look like in order to build a core of:

    Lee
    Johnson
    Lebron

    I think that would be the best 3 player combination in the league.

    True but our threesome would be younger and less injury prone. Either way it would effin amazing to have that 3.

    Sorry guys. There is no way to sign all three. There isn't enough cap space. Even if Lebron takes less than the max, there isn't enough cap space. I really don't see Lebron taking $11 mil.

    Fair enough. Do you think this is bull****? Do you see a reason why Lebron would want to play with JJ?

    LEE
    LEBRON
    JOHNSON

    = MUCHHHHH BETTER THAN
    KOBE BYNUM GASOL

    kobe is on the decline, i think bynum may get a lil bit better,and gasol is a very good all star level but not elite power forward in this league, he was never able to win **** as the go to guy in memphis.

    Lebron is hands down by far the best player in the nba
    johnson is hands down by far a top 5 shooting guard in this league
    and lee is the best passing, rebounding power forward in the league with a top 5 pf offensive skill set.

    those three with gallo, chandler, douglas, 2 fillers, walker, and a cheap t mac would be a 66-16 team for the next 3-4 years.

    I agree with many people that if the Knicks sign Lebron and bring back Lee, guys like Dwight Howard will start to lose many hours of sleep.I definitely would shake in my boots if I were an NBA big man and saw David Lee guarding me.This is why Walsh needs to give Lee a 6 year contract of max money.If David Lee comes back to the Knicks next season, I see him playing Bill Russell type of defense.Not only will he lead the league in block shots per game, he would become a better rebounder than Rodman in his prime.Could you imagine a player that plays defense like Bill Russell, blocks shots like Mark Eaton and rebounds better than Rodman? I am predicting it right now; next year David Lee will win an MVP, Mike D'antoni will win coach of the year and the Knicks will go 74-8 and go undefeated in the playoffs.

    With all due respect...

    Kobe is on the decline??? He may not be where he was two years ago, but he has enough to be the best in the league WHEN IT COUNTS. Lebron couldn't even put away the magic. His playoff clutch ability is very suspect.

    And did you forget about Lamar Odom? Without O, the Lakers don't win the title. Where was Bynum during their playoff run? M.I.A. Lamar Odom, alone, is better than Lee. If he was getting Lee type minutes, on a bum ass team like this one, he would average better numbers than Lee: 22 PPG, 13 rebounds, and an actual block.

    As for Gasol, he owns Lee on every level, that's not even a question. And everyone knows Gasol is considered the best passing big man in the league. He is constantly called, by experts, the most skilled, in fact. And Howard stated, in last year's finals, that he wants to play more like Gasol. But he's not "elite," Howard's just insane: Gasol is in the same league as Caman, David West and Randolph.

    As for Gasol, according to you, not winning anything in Memphis, let us go over this again, for the millionth time. Gasol took the Griz to their only three playoff appearances. In spite of all of the hype they have this year, they still cannot make it. What do they lack? Gasol.

    Pau Gasol basically carried the Griz to their only successful seasons (in the vaunted West, by the way); and they gave him no one, insofar as support. If they did, list them out. Who? Eddie Jones, age 38? Damon Stoudamire, age 40? Battier, Mr. Blend-in-with-the-crowd? Mike Miller, defer-to-everyone-else? You cannot call a player unsuccessful, when he does not receive adequate help.

    And Pau never got to gel with Rudy Gay and Mayo. If they still had Pau, the Griz would be going to the playoffs this year, with a shot to win a series. Meanwhile, Kobe, who reaps the benefits of playing with Pau, would be on a mediocre team, still being looked at as being Shaq's b!tch.

    And where was Kobe, in between the time that LA got Gasol and Shaq signed with Miami? He was missing the playoffs, getting bumped early, losing perpetually. He needed Gasol as much as Gasol needed him.

    Kobe is great, but he needs a great big man to play with. His need to play alongside Shaq, and, later, Gasol, in order to win big, proves this.

    The same goes for Lebron. If he plays on the Knicks, with Lee as the best big, the Knicks will be a team that makes the playoffs, only to get bumped in the 2nd round, every year. Bosh is a must have!

    I can see that. Maybe the reason LeBron wants Johnson over Bosh is so the Knickerbockers have enough to pay his Buddy T-Mac. But i think That picking Johnson over Bosh is a smart Idea. If LeBron comes over to the Knicks, TMac will stay, then if they get Joe johnson over Bosh they can afford to resign David Lee.

    Also many of you may be saying, Why in the hell should we resign McGrady? Because Tmac is good to keep around if they can get him for a affordable price. Hes a great Mentor to Douglas, Chandler, Walker, Gallo and the other young guys. then if you add in LeBron to the team and a winning atmosphere, then the knicks would be like a Rookie to star building machine. Look at the great progress we have seen out of Walker and Douglas. I think McGrady has something to do with that.

    We won't afford that with Eddy Curry's contract...people forget about that

    Let's estimate...

    Lebron 18 million +
    Johnson 15 million +
    Lee 10 million = 43 million

    We only have 34 million in cap space right now.

    if we can sign johnson, Trade him and curry for melo... Denver are looking to get rid of melo anyway and they moved AI for financial reason, so curry's expiring contract might be appealing.... that might just work.
