    This shit has to stop why cant players love to compeat aganist eatch other not plotting when to play together.


    When NBA stars align, schemes can happen


    All-Star Weekend is where the best of the very best get to have fun and show their stuff. It’s a weekend full of entertainment, a weekend of the NBA giving back to its fans.

    But for fans of struggling teams, it can also be dangerous.

    During All-Star Weekend, the game’s biggest names don’t just toss alley-oop passes and throw down fancy dunks in front of a worldwide audience. They also sometimes whisper, recruit, plan and plot behind the scenes.

    A lot of folks credit (or blame) the U.S. Olympic basketball team for the creation of today’s Miami Heat of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. But the concept was first conceived during the 2008 All-Star break, according to FOX Sports Ohio sources.

    Initially, James, Wade and New York’s Carmelo Anthony joked about playing for the same team. Initially, it was all in jest. Later, it became a full-blown conversation.

    By that time, Anthony had manufactured a trade from Denver to New York. Wade had also made it clear he wasn’t leaving Miami. Wade, James and Bosh began to talk, to ask “what if?”

    The same thing happened with then-Orlando center Dwight Howard. Agents, acquaintances and, yes, fellow All-Stars hinted Howard needed a fresh start. He ultimately made up his own mind to force the Magic’s hand and trade him to the L.A. Lakers — but again, the seed had to be planted somewhere. Many insiders insist it was during a weekend like this.

    Now, this hardly happens all the time. Kobe Bryant is renowned for being too competitive to think he needs another star. As one source said, Bryant has always been a firm believer he can get the Lakers to a title on his own.

    San Antonio’s Tim Duncan, Boston’s Kevin Garnett and others are also known to avoid these behind-the-scenes shenanigans. They’re friends to all, but friends to no one. They’re content with their situations.

    And not even the likes of James, Wade and Bosh set out to draft potential teammates. It just sort of happens, with perhaps something as innocent as a hint or a laugh. But when you’re a younger 20-something on a bad team, it’s only human nature for that hint to turn into something more. It can turn into a novel idea.

    Sources suggest James already has the ear of Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving about the potential of teaming up for an entire season (and beyond). James can opt out of his contract in 2014, and Irving will only be 22 years old.

    Earlier this week, Irving said he hasn’t given the idea of pairing with James much thought. Then, in the next breath, he indicated he can afford it at least a little.

    “The potential is endless if it ever did happen,” Irving said. “Obviously, I’d be 22 and still a young guy.”

    Either way, it’s all speculation, and until James officially opts out, it’s really much ado about nothing.

    Part of it, in fact, is a media creation. And the media can quickly silence things — much the way NBA writers built up basketball mystery man William “Worldwide Wes” Wesley in 2010, then ignored him and sent him back into irrelevancy a year later.

    Players, on the other hand, actually give fellow players the time of day. That’s especially the case on weekends like this, when the young guns get to heed the wisdom of their more experienced peers.

    Sometimes, that wisdom comes in the form of quietly encouraging fellow stars to angle for a better situation

    Tight as in late 90s, early 2000s slang or fitting?

    Lebron is getting older and wiser.

    Sam Amico, FSO- February 15, 2013

    Michael Jordan will take five rings over one.

    LeBron James – Mr. “not one, not two, not three, not four” himself – thinks a player’s ring count doesn’t always define a career.

    This has been the major topic at hand over the past couple of days. Lets take a look at what exactly was said by these two. Here is the Jordan quote, from Cindy Boren of Washington Post:

    “If you had to pick between the two, that would be a tough choice, but five beats one every time I look at it,” Jordan said of the Los Angeles Lakers star’s five NBA championship rings in an NBA TV interview. “And not that [James, who has only one] won’t get five. He may get more than that, but five is bigger than one.”

    And here’s LeBron’s reaction, from Fred Kerber of New York Post:

    “He said he would take Kobe over me because five rings is better than one … That’s his own opinion,” James said. “At the end of the day, rings don’t always define someone’s career.

    “If that’s the case, then I’d sit up here and say I’d take [Bill] Russell over Jordan. But I wouldn’t take Russell over Jordan. Russell has 11 rings, Jordan has six. Or I’d take Robert Horry over Kobe. I wouldn’t do that. But it’s your own personal opinion.”

    James, whose recent scoring and shooting has been record-setting, wasn’t finished.

    “You look at a guy like Jud Buechler who has multiple rings,” James said of the journeyman who won three rings with Jordan’s Bulls. “Charles Barkley doesn’t have one ring. He’s not better than Charles Barkley. Patrick Ewing is one of the greatest of all time. Reggie Miller is one of the greatest of all time. Sometimes, it’s the situation you’re in. (as in, not winning championships during his 7 yrs in Cleveland...) Timing as well.” http://www.foxsportsohio.com/02/15/1...33&feedID=3561
    The natural forces of the truth in the universe, media tearing at him month after month, year after year, questioning what his legacy will be- are making him more and more aware of the philosophical question- big fish in a little pond (Cleveland) or being one of a bunch of big fish (better players, more visible market). Meeting famous succesful people like Warren Buffet has made him aware that success breeds success. After this latest historic tear, I've finally let Bron-Bron go since his chances of coming back here are less than 5% and growing less week by week. We're becoming more and more a speck in his rearview mirror.

    I actually agreed with everything LeBron said and MJ's view was borderline ridiculous.

    MJ should watch what he says because if there's anyone who can strip him of GOAT it's LeBron (hasn't yet though).

    MJ has been hating on LeBron before LeBron was even in the league. No suprise he would pick Kobe, his twin.

    Did you just pick that number off the top of your head?
    It's over a year away. A lot can change between now and next year.

    Anyhow, I hope MJ's comments are incentive enough to switch back to 23 if he comes back here :P

    If LeDouche stays in Miami, Kyrie is a RFA agent the following year, could accept the QO, then enter UFA. Between now and then, Miami could dump Wade and/or Bosh and get enough cap space to sign him.

    Given his history, this could be a log con, recruiting Kyrie for 4 years down the road to come to Miami.
