    Lebron unlikely to take extension

    Thats what I was thinking. I'm going to feel bad for them when they are right back where they were before he got there.

    He's not going anywhere. I don't get why anyone believes he would leave the Cavs to go start over on another team that is completely rebuilding like the Knicks or Nets. If he had a chance to leave for a contender I could see it but no team in a position to contend could afford him.

    Anywhere he goes he's going to take them to the playoffs. Shaq will retire after this year probably. If he doesn't win the championship or even if he does he's gone IMO.

    Re: Lebron unlikely to take extension

    The way the Great Free Agent Class of 2010 is shaping up, (Dwyane) Wade is looking like the biggest prize.

    That’s because the belief is LeBron James is most likely to return to the Cavs while Wade had a remarkable season is taking a weak Heat team to the fifth seed in the East. The Heat’s roster, by most accounts, didn’t match Toronto’s, where Chris Bosh’s team didn’t come close to making the playoffs.

    The consensus among NBA executives is James will remain in Cleveland, mostly because there may not be anywhere better to go. The big threat was the Knicks. But the declining salary cap likely won’t allow the Knicks enough salary cap space to sign two free agents. The Knicks roster is awful, and it likely would be a major step back competitively for James to join a team like that. With Kobe Bryant back with a championship, it is now James—before it was Bryant when James made the Finals in 2007—who is most likely to be anxious to be with a team that has the best chance to win a championship.

    The belief is the Cavs will be a better option, and, of course, can provide him the biggest contract.

    Its all about money. If the cavs dont give him what he wants he's goneee. The contract will be insane.

    It's all about being in the big market. Lebron has said for years that he wants to be a billionaire and being in a bigger market = bigger star = more money$$.

    MJ had Chicago
    Kobe has LA
    Coming soon Lebron will have NY

    I also think that. I still believe he's heading to New York. Because thats the place where he can accomplish all that.
