When LeBron James made the long trip from Cleveland to Miami this offseason, I'm not sure he knew what would ensue in the NBA.
Since James and Chris Bosh went south to join Dwyane Wade on the Miami Heat, NBA players have been on the move. All around the league, players have been changing their area code to try and compete with the NBA's new level of competition.
The biggest move since the Miami merger was the teaming up of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire in New York. Yes, Chauncey Billups was also an unsung part of the deal, but the big pieces for the future are Anthony and Stoudemire.
Deron Williams was also sent to New Jersey before the trade deadline. Rumors are now circulating that Dwight Howard might leave the Orlando Magic at the end of this season. His desired target: the Los Angeles Lakers.
With all of this moving, it's not unlikely to question what core a general manager would rather build around.
Right now, I'm going to decide who I'd rather have on my team: Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire or LeBron James.
