LeBron is obviously just trying to build the drama before making his
long-awaited announcement to join the Jazz. Press conference to be held in SLC
shortly. After all, if winning is the very most important thing to
him, he's definitely and obviously going to the right team!
The problem with the Miami Heat is they have spent most of their money on three
SuperStars and very little on the rest of the team.The next highest
salaried player, after the big three, is Udonis Haslem who made a paltry 4.3
million (by comparison) this past season - while each of the big three pocketed
approximately 19 million. If they really want to win another championship they
need to each take a pay cut so the team can hire some backups. Because if they
opt to stay with the Heat, their salaries take jump to over 20 million next
season. They will have their money, but will likely fall short again of their
goal of winning another championship.It will be interesting to see
what they decide to do. Money or a championship? Hmm . . . I bet money wins out.
"James said that at some point, he, Wade and Bosh will gather to talk about
their plans."Sounds like more collusion to stack the deck, yet
again, in their favor.
"I just want to win. That's all that matters to me ..." - Lebron
JamesSo the 22 million+ he will make next season (if he stays)
counts for nothing?
Here's my advise LeBron; Either stick with the team you chose to run to and
try to elevate them back to the top (the Heat), or go back to the team you left
in shambles (the Cavs), your hometown, and try to elevate them to a higher
level. My guess is you'll do neither, and instead try to run again to
another team like the Knicks that can offer you gobs of money and team you up
with other all stars they will bring in to win a title in New York. That will
just reenforce my distaste for the state of affairs in the NBA that stacks the
odds always against the small market teams. Show some loyalty LeBron and quit
trying to jump on a new contender every time your contract expires.
Pain or poor sportsmanship?
Does anyone else cringe when they read "LeBron" and "decision"
in the same sentence?
