I'm sick of the draft. After last night's reverse Craig Ehlo, all I've been thinking about is 2010. Who will we choose to go alongside this man? Let's face it, if LeBron leaves Cleveland he is coming to NY. It's basically written. Once he delivers Cleveland a title, it will be easy for him to leave. Let's just hope he doesn't win it BOTH years, because as the man said, he's going wherever is his best chance for "multiple championships."
So now that we have enough money for him, we know its about who we get to go alongside him. And I'm scared at what I hear.
1. Chris Bosh -- This dude is NOT on the level of LeBron, Wade, Stoudemire, CP, Kobe...why is his name always the first one mentioned? He's been on Toronto his whole career, and they just seem to be getting worse. Last thing we need is a high paid big man that is soft down low.
2. Amare Stoudemire -- Previously Amare was the only acceptable option to me as the second free agent, but since I have lightened up. FIrst of all he's gone from Phoenix. We need a big that plays like a beast down low, and he was with D'Antoni during their best years, and he can shoot. Between Amare and Bosh this is a no brainer. But Amare may not even be the best option to go with LeBronzo.
3. Dwyane Wade -- First this requires a moment of silence. Just envision D Wade coming in with LeBron, and then we can talk about why it can happen...OK. We can skip the pics of Yankee hats at Cleveland Indians games, we can skip when LeBron comes to NY and says the Yankess should get CC Sabathia and the Yankees go out and do that weeks later...LeBron and Wade have said publicly that they want to play together at some point during their careers. They said this during USA basketball, where Coach D'Antoni was helping guide them to the best ball of their careers. If they were ever to that then 2010 is the time and New York is the place. Both Wade and LeBron will have titles by 2010 for their cities. I just think it will take signing LeBron first to NY, and then D Wade would jump on board, because he does like Miami. But this is history we're talking about.
This 10 years of suffering we Knicks fans have endured, with one last year to trudge through, would be erased by 10 years of probably 80 win seasons. We just need to get rid of Curry and Jeffries contracts, and I say do whatever it takes short of giving up Nate or Lee. Thats my best case scenario anyway. But the last thing I will say is, its probably more delusional to think the Knicks will keep both Nate and Lee than it is to envision LeBron and Wade running at MSG for years. Let's just stop talking about Bosh please...Am I wrong here?
