if SF's continue to just re-sign with their teams and don't go anywhere, Josh Childress might be seeing a good payday in his NBA return

Grizzlies lost in that deal though, Gay is a restricted free agent, if they were gonna sign him for that much money, they could have seen what the market would have offered him and just match the deal. Gay for 16 mill a year, no team out there would have offered him half that (IMO, of course)
I was very surprised for this same reason.

thoughts on a possible Channing Frye return?

dude said he's waiting on teams to sign whoever and he'll decide, even said NY is a team he would like to come back to himself....could work this time since we're not forcing defense like with Brown, Wilkens and i guess Zeke...Frye still soft as s**t but imagine a trio of shooters out there spreading the floor in Gallo, Frye & Mike Miller

take it for what it's worth but Amar'e to NY is pretty much a done deal according to numerous sources, both parties are currently just working out the numbers to make it official

if this is true, next target has to be Mike Miller since "both guys that matter" are trying to get him on their teams....just gotta hope he doesn't sign that MLE with the Lakers they offered him (he wants little more money but that team would be an automatic Threepeat with Miller on board)

hopefully Lee stops being a d*ck and stays since he'll get what he wants, he wants to play the 4, Amar'e here, he will be a 4 in the lineup

Alright fellas, it's Day 3 of Free Agency and I'm starting to piece together all the rumors. I really believe there is BIG reason the Knicks have been blown off from even before Day 1, and that LeBron's camp has been sending out messages left and right to different sources down-playing the Knicks chances.

It's all a giant plot to get LeBron to sign in NY, while saving complete face with Cleveland. I posted this in this thread only because it's not worth it to get the usual hate from the usual suspects on the main board, but I really think if you look closely you can see a pattern developing.

It seems to me that the "Big 3" in FA have been linked together from the start. They've even been rumored to having a "FA Summit" and have been in contact throughout this process. You can't tell me that they've had practically the passed 2 seasons to think heavily about the Summer of 2010, and are just making up their minds now on where they want to go. I feel this Free Agency has been pre-determined from the word go.

The Rumors have all been smoke-screen. Here's what we know...

*The Bulls were never spoken about as an option for LeBron James throughout the entire cap clearing process, now after the Game 5 loss were all of a sudden crowned the leading candidate for LeBron almost out of nowhere.

*LBJ/Wade/Bosh have been linked together from the jump. Said to have had a rumored "FA Summit" and have even been rumored to pair up to form a "Dream Team" in Miami.

*Since the "Dream Team" theory has begun to lose steam, there have been indicators stating that Bosh to Miami is a "foregone conclusion" and his name has synonymously linked along with Dwayne Wade's as an inevitable 1-2 punch. They have the same agent, and are both fielding their interviews in Chicago...hmmm...Chicago?

*"Sources" from LeBron's camp have come out with numerous conflicting stories. Now we're beginning to hear how the Knicks pitch wasn't impressive and that they seemed unprepared. How can a team that has been planning 2 years for this moment just lay an egg? This was shot down by Knicks brass including Donnie Walsh himself.

*Now we are starting to see this all unfold with the 2nd meeting with Wade and the Bulls and the rumblings that Wade is strongly considering a move back home to Chicago.
Now here me out...I'm beginning to think that DWade/Bosh end up in Chicago, with LeBron/Amare to NY.

LeBron can tell Cleveland that even though Chicago had a great young supporting cast and was considered the frontrunner for his services, that he declined their offer to stay in Cleveland. Also, Miami was never truly an option. They tried forming a "Dream Team" and that was never in my best interest, or the league in general...so again, I declined. With the rumors suggesting he was "unimpressed" with NY's pitch, he can also tell the Cavs that he really wasn't even considering NY at the time either...until Wade/Bosh decided to take HIS initial offer from the Chi.

Now he can save face by telling them "With DWade and Bosh in our own division, I don't feel we have the resources here in Cleveland that can build a team to really compete with that stacked roster. When NY signed Amare, I thought it was in my best interest to pair up with him and give myself the best chance to compete for that ever allusive title."

Makes Cleveland really want to kick themselves by not ponying up Hickson for Amare at the deadline, huh?

It's beginning to come full circle, almost story-boarded to perfection. It was never about joining forces on a team, but joining forces to play the market. This actually brings up another key component in this plan...the financial aspect of the league.

Entering the final offseason before the current CBA expires, everyone is looking to cash in. With so many teams having cap space, somebody's doomed to miss out on a big fish. With the big fish holding out early, the lower level FA's are seeing outrageous offers due to the fear of losing out all together. This is how he truly becomes the King, by taking care of his "peasants" and helping everyone get paid. In essence fluctuating the market, giving leverage to the player's union heading into the new CBA.

Crazy...I know, but I've seen crazier things happen. Just a theory of mine as I try to read between the lines.

Sorry for the length, just spittin' of the top of my head.

Interesting theory indeed,and there might be some legs behind it....i've all along thought it makes entirely no sense for any sensible person to say the knicks situation isn't ideal...a nice core of shooters who are young,and cheap...and a huge expiring next year....the enormous amount of negative press giving to the knicks to me was clearly pushed from behind the scenes....and i think a lot of people were either getting paid,or promised things to push the agenda....



but if all of this was to make it an easier transition for bron to come to nyc...f**k it....were used to getting hated on anyhow....and it will have been well worth it...

I just feel as if everyone's been ignoring that "pink elephant" in the room. From Day 1 when Donnie Walsh took over and traded ZBo/Craw for 2010 friendly contracts, the Knicks were said to be the #1 suitors in the LeBron chase. Then out of nowhere, it was Chicago?

Just seems as if the smear tactics and the negative reports from "sources" out of LeBron's camp have no bearing. These aren't the same ol' Knicks. Walsh'Toni have changed the face and the culture is on the verge of that same change.

It just gives LeBron an out to say NY wasn't really a player in this, even AFTER rumors of them signing Amare initially...it was only when Wade/Bosh teamed up in Chicago that he felt he needed a team with the resources to compete.

Interesting points ^.

It could def happen, and I can see it happen like that. You forgot to mention, b4 LBJ really wanted Amare on his team, but it didn't happen. After that, you saw all these articles saying LBJ wants to play with Bosh. Maybe that was their first smoke screen.

But on the other hand, I do really think LBJ wanted to play with Bosh. No homo. It's just that Wade all of a sudden attatched his mouth to Bosh's nut sack. And now it Bosh & Wade rather than Lebron & Bosh. And I think the tandem will end up in Miami and not Chicago. Hopefully LBJ will notice this and realize Amare is the next best available free agent to team up with.

But I honestly think NY has alot more to offer than anybody dare give credit for.

First of all, the financial situation, we know LBJ will make alot more money in NY than anywhere else. That's set in stone, no1 should argue that point, even though boxden n*ggas do.

Second, the Team. Yeah Bulls got Rose and Noah (who all of a sudden is being overrated as a muhf**ka). That tandem is flawed since Rose and LBJ both need the ball to be effective. IDK how ppl can refute that either. LBJ's game is draw the double team and kick it to hit the shot. Rose sucks at hitting 3's. That's why we have a PG who don't need the ball to be effective. He'll drain that 3 pointer. Great defense. We also have Gallo, who I believe is a gonna be a solid player if not more. He can hit the 3, he can bring it (which he showed last season, but should have done it alot more), and has huge heart. Now we also most likely will be getting Amare. He's a beast! No need to explain. And we have chandler, who I really like, but I believe he will be traded with curry to bring in a point guard: tony parker or maybe, just maybe chris paul. Even if Chi gets 2 maxes, this team would be wayyyyy better. You add Bill Walker, who also can drain 3's and throw slams down. Great off the bench. Add Earl Barron, Rautins, and vet min. We got a solid team, top seed there.
