Lebron better work on his jumper

Cleveland traded all these ladies to Phoenix.

Cleveland traded all these ladies to Phoenix.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded for Shaquille O’Neal.

This, for all intents and purposes, ends Lebron’s time in Cleveland.

The reason I say that is because this move probably makes them worse, not better. It was a panic move. They lost, they needed to do something. So, my guess is that they take this move and go to Lebron in the offseason and try to get him to sign an extension. Shaq still has tons of credibility with players. He won’t, but, I’m less sure about that.

They needed a big man that could play defense. Not a big man that will clog the lane. A lane Lebron uses as the biggest part of his game. Basketball wise, this should not help them win games.

Now, if they paint this to Lebron as “we’ve got Shaq for a year, but if you re-sign now, we’re going to make a run at Chris Bosh after next season” then maybe it works out.

    Or…

    he could demand a trade to the Bobcats right now, and play with Emeka Okafor(the team’s defense overall is pretty good). He’ll have a much better chance of going back to the finals with Larry Brown as his coach.

    This is just wishful thinking on my part though. if he doesn’t want to come to NC, I’ll gladly take three of those cheerleaders instead.

    Yeah, I don’t think a trade will happen, not a matter of NC or elsewhere. I just don’t see the Cavs trading him.

    Larry Brown as coach for Lebron would be a great fit. Thinking about it, your mention of it is the first I’ve heard it. But, I wonder if he would consider going their in Free Agency?

    Lebron and Gerald Wallace I think would be a solid pairing. I’ll admit to not knowing too too much about how ready they are to compete, but they seemed to give some solid runs to teams like the Lakers at times this year.

    But, adding a perimeter scorer in the draft, they might have a nucleus that could attract Lebron. I love Larry Brown as a coach.
