    Cavs owner terrified that LeBron leaves if Cavs don't make finals

    Dan Gilbert is reportedly terrified that if the Cavaliers are unable to return to the Finals, LeBron James will leave Cleveland for New York, says a source close to the owner that spoke with Peter Vecsey.

    Of course this comes out on the day that LeBron makes his only trip to New York

    I hope LeBron stays in Cleveland or goes somewhere other than NY or LA. Of course if he wants to come to the Bulls, I am ok with that :).

    If the Cavs can't even beat an average Bulls team at home, I don't see how they make it to the finals. Both Boston and Orlando are better then Cleveland right now.

    I'm a big LeBron fan......but my hatred for the Knickerbockers will override my fandom for LeBron if he goes there.

    I don't think there's a chance in h3!! LeBron stays in Cleveland. I think he goes to NYC to not play for the Knicks but to be the foundation of a new team in Brooklyn.

    NY would ruin his chance of what he really wants - that organization is so inept in it's management that he's probably be the only player on the team averaging double digits.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Cavs owner terrified that LeBron leaves if Cavs don't make finals

    They were throwing around the idea of LeBron going to LA on the DP show this morning. I gotta say as a Laker fan...LeBron would look pretty good in gold! Could you imagine him and Kobe in the same backcourt?

    They would have the first undefeated NBA season in history.

    Na, the Bulls are clearing cap room for D-Wade...which I am really, really excited about. Think about that backcourt for the next 5-6 years!

    Re: Cavs owner terrified that LeBron leaves if Cavs don't make finals

    LeBron James dropped a bit of a bomb on the entire NBA when he spoke his final sentence Friday night before leaving Madison Square Garden, a statement that should leave everyone in Cleveland, New York and elsewhere -- especially in Miami -- wondering exactly what the King meant by those parting words.

    "As a kid I visualized playing for almost every team in the NBA," James said. "Right now, I visualize playing with a lot of guys in the NBA. There are a lot of great individual [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]basketball [COLOR=blue !important]players[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] that I would love to be alongside of and try to contend for an NBA championship.

    "I think at the end of the day, a max deal or anything like that doesn't really matter to me at the end of the day. It's all about winning for me. So I've put myself in a position that when that day comes next summer, I want to win, and if I feel like the team is capable of winning, I'll make my decision like that."

    Did you catch that part in the middle? The part about how a max deal doesn't really matter at the end of the day?

    That, folks, could be a game-changer -- a statement of epic proportions that could shake up everyone's preconceived notions about who has the best chance of landing the game's best young player.

    Cleveland, of course, can offer James the most money -- a six-year deal in the range of $120 million. The Knicks and the Nets have the salary cap space to give James the maximum they are allowed to offer -- a five-year deal in the mid-to-high $90 million range.

    James has already made it abundantly clear that he enjoys playing at Madison Square Garden more than any other arena in the league, and the vibrancy of New York makes it his favorite city in America.

    But the guy strongly, strongly reiterated that winning is the No. 1 priority on his wish list.

    So he looked a little different, and he sounded different, too, with that line about the max money.

    Re: Cavs owner terrified that LeBron leaves if Cavs don't make finals

    He makes so much in endorsements that max money probably isn't a huge thing. He'll make more in endorsements over that time than he would in a max deal.

    To really solidify his legacy and maximize his earning potential over his lifetime (a la Jordan) he needs to start winning championships.

    And he is as good as gone out of Cleveland IMO and I have thought that for a long time.

    Cleveland has no chance to be in the finals this year.

    Why would anyone want to go to the Knicks (other than money of course). They aren't a championship-type franchise. They are about as storied as the Washington Wizards or Atlanta Hawks... If you want to win, go to a good organization like you said.

    He'd be a good match in Orlando with Dwight Howard :)

    That would be a great tandom. Clear up some cap space by getting rid of Vince Carter and I think they would have a shot.
