"...Dwyane Wade doubts that he'll be teammates with LeBron James, but acknowledged on Wednesday that such a pairing isn't impossible.As I've repeatedly said, the idea of them playing together, as cool as they think it may be, isn't happening.Nor is the idea that Lebron will end up is Chicago. Really? Why would he chase Jordan? It's the same rational of him playing with Wade and being a ring behind.
"It's something we've talked about, of course," Wade said. "No question, it's a long shot. He's put in position in Cleveland where he has the opportunity to compete for a championship now. I'm in Miami, where I've won a championship and this is where I love to be. So it's not like we're both looking over our shoulders saying we want to get out of here. So it's a long shot. But at the end of the day, it is a shot."
The Cavaliers will travel to Miami to play the Heat on Thursday night in a highly-anticipated game.
"Me and D-Wade have been friends for seven or eight years and have talked about a lot of things. [Playing together] may have come up in a conversation. ... It doesn't come up all the time," James said..."
Lebron is his own man and good for him for focusing on a the task at hand. July is a ways away.
On the same note, I've noticed countless fans over the past few days calling WFAN and talking about the idea of why Lebron would want to come to a "losing" team.
I've had enough and find myself yelling at the radio.
Please stop calling and bitching about the Knicks in terms of next year. And if you know someone who waits to talk to the FAN to talk about how Lebron won't come to a crappy team, tell them to stop wasting their time. It means nothing.
Without question, I believe Lebron knows that if he comes here the talent WILL FOLLOW HIM. So if you look at this group and focus on wins and losses, you are missing the point completely.
So look at it this way. If the Cavs lose, and they have no where else to turn in terms of upgrading, Lebron will look to leave. If he signs with the Knicks early in July, imagine the talent that will follow him. Seriously, imagine it.
It's why no one has signed with him in Cleveland. Where he decides to build, they will come.
So please, PLEASE stop talking about this year in terms of roster and talent from the Knicks standpoint as your argument for why Lebron won't come.
It means nothing in the grand scheme.
Big picture people, big picture.
