Maybe read his piece. He said he's not expecting to win a championship right away with the Cavs. Its management still needs to make some moves to make it a contender but still, I do think it was the best decision.
Aaaand, the Rox just got rid of Jeremy Lin's salary (traded to the Lakers)... Expecting the signing of Bosh and/or the matching of Parson's offer sheet for the next 24 hours.

Maybe Kevin Love is on the way... just maybe
And I'm not a LeBron fan... but I really liked this. Such a feel good story. the league is so much about business that shit like that surprise us a little. Someone wrote this and I agree... lebron was born and raised in Ohio, become pro there, never moved til his change to the heat. His 4 years in Miami where like College, he went off, had fun, learned, suffered, matured and now he’s back.
On another note… Lin to the Lakers, Melo is off, he’s between Chicago and the Knicks
With that Gasol's pobably off too
Another year sucking hard on lakerland
but I thought that the goal was not 1, not 2, not 3...

Gasol in Chicago and Pierce in Washington... both are good adds for their teams playoff hoops
I'm kinda disappointed lebron left, but i'm happy for him it's his decision, i like Lebron and i'll keep supporting him. I just think cavs don't deserve him after all the hate they gave him when he left.
that been said i'm still rooting for Miami (sorry to disappoint you haters), Heat ain't doomed like people are saying. i'm exited to see Bosh playing as a top dog again, he changed his style and make a lot of sacrifices to play with lebron. Now he can play like he old self again. Didn't follow Wade's offseason move, just like everybody i was focused on lebron descision but i'm sure Wade will sign with the Heat again. He have been drafted by that team, won 3 championship there. I think his level dropped not just because of injuries but also because he have been relying too much on Lebron this season, just like the rest of the team. He was productive on last season's finale but he just disappeared on this season. Now that lebron is gone he'll have to step up his game but i still believe Wade is not done (like most are saying).
On another note i'm disappointed the Rockets left Parsons to the Mavericks and not many team went after him the kid is great. He was my favorite player on the Rockets this season. Also disappointed by Melo decision, while i'm not a fan or anything, it's still a shame watching a talented guy like him wasting his career on the knicks. At some point on this season those guys weren't even trying to win, they played the lamest defense ever and their offense minus melo was a joke. the only talk about the knicks was JR smith untying shoes and felton's trouble with the law. I don't like the Bulls but at least the Bulls fight til the end and Noah always try to win, they would have been a better team for Melo.
I like how Pat Riley and Wade showed how a classy organization act when their golden guy is leaving for another team in contrast to the Cavs

what are the news for the Clippers? didn't follow the offseason there and what happened to the sterling case?

Sterling case is ongoing. The judge has to decide id his wife had the rights to sell the team.
The sale can be voided... and if it's the case, the league said that she can take over the team and run an auction.
the Clippers signed Spencer Hawes and Jordan Farmar this offseason, while they let Collison walk(went to the Kings)
And I'll always having fun kicking Miami, that introduction of the big 3 was awful,
About Wade... he isn't done, but he can't carry a team like he used to do... his body is betraying him. He was rested most of the last season, yet he vanished on the las games. He was defending like James Harden, couldn't score on transition and couldn't beat Paul George off the dribble and keep the team alive when LeBron had foul trouble. He should be better on a Ginobili-esque role rigt now.
Bosh is a better player than when he was in Toronto... still, I'm not sure if he carry a offense by himself, his work around the rim has dipped, he isn't young, maybe he just doesn't have the spring anymore. That said, they added Deng and the east is so feeble that this team will compete there and has as good as chance as any team to get on the conference finals.
About Houston... their offseason was a disaster. They could have kept Parsons an extra season for a minimum salary, the downside being that he would be a URA next year. They dreamed about Carmelo and Bosh, moves that would put them over hump. And for that they gave up on Asik and Lin... and when they got spurned they gave up on Parsons too. In the end they got Ariza, who is a downgrade to Parsons, to sae some money/flexibility. They were a team set to improve greatly, but they are a worse team now than they were at the end of the last season. The bigger winners of this offseason are actually the Spurs, only the Clippers got better on the west and their biggest obstacle on the east got worse instead of improving.
LeBron going back to Cavs kinda disgusts me, unless the fans and the owner apologized to him. Pretty good of him to go back though, given how he was treated.
Melo re-signed with the Knicks.
Same Knicks who could not make the eighth seed. Over the Bulls who made the fourth seed without Rose and made it to conference semifinals the previous year without Rose. Well, Melo must not want the ring as much as he wants money. Unless the coach is a pretty good coach.
Check this hilarious parody of LeBron's essay.
Tim Duncan: I'm Using Chrome
holy cow Mike Miller joined lebron on the cavs. Was hoping the Heat would get him again, still i'm happy for him, that guy is awesome. As for Ray Allen he's getting ridiculous with the lebron piggy back, trying to get a deal with the cavs or he might retire
Mike Miller couldn't get back to the heat this season. His original contract would finish at the end of thi season. He was amnestied, he can~t be back to the team that amnestied him in the time his original contract would be running

haha was hilarious
Holy shit, PG injury is terrible
Indiana Pacers 8 months ago: Paul George almost in MVP mode, Stephenson in MIP mode, Roy Hibbert as Best Center in the NBA.
Predictions for that team: Title
Indiana Pacers now: Paul George lucky if he can walk in 6 month, Stephenson gone, Roy Hibbert lost his basket
Predictions for that team: A qualification for the playoffs would already be nice.
Aside from that, Kevin Love will go to the cavaliers in exchange of Andrew Wiggins. Package should include Bennett and Corey Brewer. For me, it will be a good deal for both teams. Most specialists agreed that Wiggins would not be able to play in "2" and is a real "3". He wouldn't improve fast enough by coming out of the bench behind LBJ. Kevin Love is a monster and a duo Varejao/Love in the paint + LBJ,Waiters,Irving ... that's one hell of a starting 5 on paper. And I don't see them fail like the Howard-Kobe-Gasol-Nash lakers. Sure, we can be worried about Love and Irving being basically the two worst starting defenders in their respective positions but with the talent available + Lebron, they should qualify for the playoffs rather easily and be an immediate threat. One year to learn to play together and then title is possible in 2 years.
