Everything not NY related- Redick maybe sign and trade to Utah for Boozer? I think that maybe Lee goes Bulls. It's really hard to know, things change for me pretty quickly for most of these guys. I think that Boozer is better in NJ than Miami, and he knows it. Getting a dump off from D Hare is better than D Wade, especially considering how Boozer plays. Additionally, I think that it is nearly a fact that Riley comes back next year and Boozer is a bit of a slacker on the Defensive end and isn't going to want to play for that. I like the Nets play on all of these guys, I think that they have a promising franchise in NJ considering Wesley Johnson as a trade piece in a sign and trade(MELLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to the NEts?????). In the end I only really care where Bron Bron goes, love the Bulls but its all about BRon.
NY- I think that LBJ has to win ONE title in NY to be an iconic sports figure there forever, he knows that. He makes that team very attractive when they get the FAT Ed Curry contract (get it?) off of the books. There are some attractive pieces there, and attractive coach, and any guy to have played in Pheonix under Mike D fits well in that system. If LBJ signs NY it is automatically in play that Melo, KDurant, Dirk, Bosh, and everyother player ever will want to come there, its the big apple, they can win a title.
PS-Dont count NJ out of any guy, a new owner, the better Lopez brother, and the possibility of Brooklyn are all very sexy. Plus Jay-Z??? Dude Jay-Z, seriously what more could you want?
Ray Allen- He is relevant next to Bron, makes him play better ball and above all else makes him look better. Ray Allen was VERY relevant in game two of the NBA finals, and for a mid level exception guy thats all that you need. The only reason he excercised ETO was to win another ring, and he thought his chances were better elsewhere. He is missing out on probably 10ish million dollars by excercising that ETO.
Other plays that I think are VERY important in this entire thing;
Salmons(reportedly back to Fearing the Dear anyways)
