Where LeBron James and Top Free Agents Will End Up
There is plenty of hype about where Lebron James, D-Wade, and Chris Bosh will go this upcoming free agent period.
But what about the rest of the bunch? David Lee, Carlos Boozer, and others are much too talented to leave out of this heated debate, so here is where I believe all the top free agents will land...
Lebron James and D-Wade... Miami Heat
Lebron James, say hello to your newest teammate Dwayne Wade.
These two are great friends and would love playing together in Miami. This could be one of the greatest pairs on one team in the history of the NBA.
Lebron James search for a championship ring comes to a screeching hault as him and the flash win a handful of them together, but not necessarily in their first year of play together...
Amare Stoudemire... Phoenix is still home
Amare was argueably the best player in the league the second half of this season. He is a bigger impact player than any other big in the game today and Phoenix will do all they can to maintain him.
Nash is old, but with the right movement the Suns still have a shot to win a title or two and Amare knows it.
Chris Bosh... Los Angeles Lakers
Sorry Bosh, no playing with Wade and Lebron for you.
But hey, look on the bright side, you get to play with Kobe and Pau Gasol.
Chris Bosh joins the Lakers and keeps the wheels spinning on that band wagon for awhile longer. The Lakers will continue to compete for the west for a couple more years and even get there to face up against the Heat in the finals, but lose...
Dirk Nowitzki... Still a Mav
Good ol' Dirk is a Mav at heart and will always be one...
I just can't see him leaving there now that they actually have some pieces, such as Caron Butler, to seriously contend for a title.
He stays, but unfortunately he never finds a ring in Dallas.
Joe Johnson... Once again a Phoenix Sun
This move keeps Amare and with him and Johson, keeps the Suns a contening team.
Nash is getting up there in age so Amare considers leaving until they sign Joe Johnson and pair him up with Amare and Nash.
This puts them at top of the league and they win the 2010-2011 championship, but after that Nash declines enough to end their championship runs and that's all she wrote... for a little while anyway.
Carlos Boozer... Becomes a Net
Carlos boozer has no other choice, but to sign with the nets or return to Utah.
The 76ers become stupid and draft Derrick Favors over Evan Turner in the draft, leaving a big man vacancy still.
Boozer joins a young nucleus of Lopez, Harris, and Turner... They are good, but not amazingly good, at least not immediately.
David Lee... Sac-town baby
David Lee hesitates because it's Sacramento, but eventually decides to sign with Kings because he sees a lot of potential.
He joins reining R.O.Y. and amazing talent, Tyreke Evans, along with newly drafted Wesley Johnson and a number of other young talented players such as Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Omri Casspi, Beno Udrih, etc.
Kings take a couple years to fully blossum, but once Tyreke Evans comes into his prime and the young group matures together, they take over as a dominate force in the West, along with the Thunder, as Lakers, Suns, and others begin to fall off.
Walsh, don't cry..
Walsh made the biggest mistake in history as a GM...
Planning around something that was no where near a fur sure thing.
All I can say is COME ON MAN!!!
