I can't believe some people have the audacity to think Lebron will join New York next year because T-Mac is on the team. Are we forgetting Tracy is 30? Or are we forgetting he plays the same position as Lebron? You would expect this from the New York media, but I shouldn't be reading this on Yahoo Sports and several other reliable sources.
Of all the free-agents, I consider 13 of them "big time" players.
-Joe Johnson (Atlanta) -Josh Smith (Atlanta) -Ray Allen (Boston) -Lebron James (Cleveland) -Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas) -Yao Ming (Houston) -Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles) -Dwyane Wade (Miami) -Michael Redd (Milwaukee) -Amare Stoudemire (Phoenix) -Manu Ginobili (San Antonio) -Chris Bosh (Toronto) -Carlos Boozer (Utah)
Now I obviously wouldn't consider Tracy McGrady a big time free agent this upcoming summer, but New Yorkers are thinking it may be enough to lure in Lebron. I am actually uncertain which player would work best with Lebron. All mainstream media has either Chris Bosh or Dwyane Wade in mind to partner up with the king. I actually believe that Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade would work better with each other than if one of them paired up with Lebron. It's tough when Lebron can play a shooting guard, all the way to a power forward. I don't think Dwyane Wade would work with Lebron only because there would be too much demand for the ball. Both players need to a certain amount of shots and they would be short a dominant center. I think the most successful combo will be a dominant center and a dominant guard. Kobe/Shaq. Duncan/Parker.
Lebron isn't heading to New York unless a big time center or big man is going also.
