The Free Agents

Thursday night at 12:01am the NBA Free Agency season begins. Finally. This free agent season has been discussed for at least 2 years and rightfully so. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Dirk Nowitzki, Joe Johnson, Amar'e Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer hit the market. (Other players are becoming free agents as well, but they aren't the headliners lol).

They've all said that the quest is to win (multiple) rings. If that is indeed the quest then some combination of (if not all 3) LBJ,Wade and Bosh should unite. They are no fools and have already had a "summit" to discuss the possibilities. If they did so with Wade in Miami it would be crazy and look like this. Bosh would have to cut his hair of course, but who wouldn't for a ring? Even though I don't like the idea of LeBron in Chicago, if he and Bosh joined that team they become championship contender as well and then maybe LeBron and Joakim Noah can dance together:

Of course everything centers around LeBron and where he'll go. Initially the speculation was New York Knicks or New Jersey Nets (soon to be Brooklyn). They both have plans to meet with him on Thursday night. The Knicks had bigger plans for wooing LeBron but had to cancel. Of late Miami and Chicago have become the front runners. Mark Cuban and Dallas have even made a push. Unfortunately for some we haven't heard much from Cleveland. They tried to woo Tom Izzo from Michigan State to try to keep LeBron, didn't workout. Now they're trying Byron Scott or Brian Shaw, both of whom were former players (and have rings) something LeBron has asked for. We'll see what happens.

I'm excited to see whatever does eventually happen. There are a lot of moves to be made. I hope some big things happen, and teams add pieces to push them over the top. Something needs to happen to prevent the #Fakers from a 3peat lol.
