Word On The Street……

In CULTURE, HOT BUTTON TOPIC, INDUSTRY BUZZ, NBA, SPORTS on June 30, 2010 at UTC.27.30.

Lebron James & Dwyane Wad3 can’t play together. At least, that’s the latest word on the street! I list 7 popular reasons why it won’t work, while listing one all important reason it can!

Whose going to take the last shot? How about they’ll each 20 last shots. Balanced equally over an 82 game regular season.

Who would the leader be? Teams do have 2-3 captains. Ever heard of Co-Captains….

These 2 can’t guys  play together. So, the World Championship Games in Puerto Rico & Europe are discounted. The 04 & 08 Olympics counts for nothing as well right?Moreover, all the practice, film & study sessions under Larry Brown, Nate McMillian, Mike D’ Antoni, and Coach K w/ the 04 & 08 Olympic coaching staff  has these players aware of each others likes & dislikes, tendencies, & where each like to do work on the hardwood!

There games( Wad3 & James) mimic each other. One is a Small forward in an Power Forwards body. The other is a Point Guard in a Shooting Guards body. Wad3 does play on the perimeter like Lebron. However, Wad3 is a slasher & clutch shooter. Lebron uses more power & speed. He’d just as well jump over, or run through the opposition! Both like contact, yet have different styles. ‘Bron loves to pass, Wad3 loves to attack. Their games compliment each other.

Lebron’s legacy will  take a hit! This one is comical. So, he shouldn’t partner with Wad3 because that’s taking the easy way out. Bull shit! why did Karl Malone & Gary Payton link up with Shaq & Kobe in LA? Why did KG & Allen link with Pierce? Honestly, it takes 3 stars to win in June. Just look at the Lakers.

Both need the ball in their hands to be successful! While that may have been the case early in their careers. Each can excel playing off the ball. One just needs to check the last 3 All-Star games. While it is true neither is a knockdown perimeter shooter, their upside is so great with their collective desire to improve in the off-season.

Lebron leaving CLEVELAND would be admitting defeat! Agreed, yea 7 years with over 120 wins in the last 2 seasons, an NBA FINALS appearance against the Spurs, an Eastern Conference Finals appearance, & 2 MVP trophies. Sounds pretty mediocre to me. I’ll bet 31 other GM’s would gladly take that record.

Every year 31 teams go head into the off season unfulfilled. It’s why they call it a game. Someone has to win & someone has to lose. It’s hard to argue the success Cleveland has enjoyed since signing James. They didn’t get it done, but that’s hardly his fault.

Dude put the CAVALIERS on the map. He resurrected a franchise,  rebuilt a city & brought a swagger to a city that  is unrivaled.

The NBA will be salivating if these 3 free agents can join forces. It makes the game more marketable & finally insures that James vs Bryant happens next June & perhaps for he next 2-3 seasons.

In my opinion, Heat or Wad3 HATERS don’t want to see them play together. PERIOD!

I know CAVS fans would not trade ‘Bron for 1 year & a Championship. Rather, than the last7 years of  consistent winning records, national attention, TV exposure national acclaim. I mean, honestly Lebron has done everything in Cleveland except for win a title. Still, it’s hard to cast his time their as futile or in failure. Just don’t buy that with all the success his teams have had.

What else can homeboy do? Except for win the title 7 times straight!! Sorry, the Laker’s have that dude under contract. However, there is an alternative.

Take I-95 SOUTH then exit BISCAYNE BLVD MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA……make History & CHANGE THE GAME!!!

What the result be, if they joined forces? Hmm, this is a toss up. Laker dynasty out West. A weakened & new Eastern conference after this summer’s free agency!

PREDICTION:

Wad3 & James, & Bosh can win the next 4 Championships if they squad up!

WINNING TRUMPS ALL & LEGACIES RE-WRITTEN

GO HEAT!!!
