True... didn't consider that he's from there... it's a ****-hole though, biased or not, I'll stick by that one.

A few sources in this article say that Miami is now the front-runner.  PLEASE let this be true!

Sources: James, Bosh, Wade meet, talk futures

Although the "front runner" seems to change every day, that would be crazy to see something like that happen.  Three super-stars, all in the prime of their careers, joining the same team at the same time.  Sure, we've seen "all-star"-ish lineups before (Boston's Big Three, The Lakers with Shaq/Kobe/Malone/Payton/etc.), but I don't know that we've seen guys who were/are really all in their prime together like that.  Could be very interesting.  I don't know why, but I've never really liked the Knicks that much (probably stemming from the John Starks/Charles Oakley days vs. the Bulls)...so in a way it would be kind of funny to see them trade away and prepare for this big free agent class only to come away empty.  I do think they have a good chance to luring Joe Johnson and Amare there, which would really help them out.  Its going to be a fun offseason.

I heard this stat yesterday.

Of the 64 NBA Championships: The Lakers or Celtics have won 33.

Of the past 31, 27 have been won by one of five teams: Lakers, Celtics, Bulls, Spurs, or Pistons.

Why even follow a team if they aren't one of those teams? They have no chance.

The latest rumor has Wade seriously considering Chicago.

If he does that, it'd be a no-brainer for Lebron to do the same...

Oh man that'd be awesome.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised as I figured (at least at the beginning of the week) that Wade was probably a lock for Miami.  But now, it is starting to look like the Bulls could field the best team (supporting cast) so I can see why they would go for Chicago.  I'm starting to wonder if Miami might be left out in the cold in all of this, because I can't see LBJ (or Bosh) going there if Wade is gone - I think that sort of defeats the purpose of all the Miami talk anyways.  The thing is, Bosh is so tied to either one or the other (more recently Wade), and I don't think the Bulls can get all three (unless a sign and trade scenario was worked out possibly).  With a lot of other players likely staying with their teams (Rudy Gay, Paul Pierce, possibly Joe Johnson, possibly Ray Allen), the pool is thinning quickly.

No love for Amare to be found anywhere?  He's gone from Phoenix, that much is now pretty well sealed even though you could go back to February and say that.  Looking like he might end up in New York.  Kind of surprised he didn't end up in some of the talks.  I'm not sure I'd take Bosh over Amare.

I sort of feel the same way.  We were talking about it this week at work, and I think I'd rather have Amare if I was choosing a PF.  Both are talented, and there may sometimes be a question with Stoudemire's motivation, but when he plays hard he's one of the best in the league.

I spent most of my life rooting for the Bulls.  I would have no problem doing it again.


As for the Amare vs. Bosh discussion, I'd take Bosh in a heartbeat.  He's younger and rebounds better.  I question Amare's drive on certain occasions.  I've never had that issue with Bosh.

He's gonna announce his decision tomorrow and it hasn't leaked yet?

That's amazing in and of itself.

Still not as amazing as the narcissism involved in having a 1 hour special to announce your stupid decision.  Win a ring jackass, and then maybe I'll watch.  He hasn't done anything but lose in the postseason, excuse me if I pass on the whole dog and pony show.

Stoudemire to the Knicks.  One down. 

If James joins him, then the Knicks cleaned up.

If he doesn't, then the offseason that Knicks fans have been waiting for, for 3 years, was a total failure.  We were expecting a little more than a 20 PPG 10 REB player for $20 million a year with a history of major knee and eye trouble.
