New York - Amare, Joe Johnson

Dallas - Dirk

5. I Just Don't See It
That means TWO of these guys have to take way under the max, and both LeBron and Bosh will have to take less than Wade.

Given how contract status is part of the pecking order of the NBA, it's hard to imagine all three guys taking less than the max deal. One of them, for the chance of winning, yes. Two of them, maybe but doubtful. All three of them? No way.

4. I'm hoping LeBron to the Bulls
with Bosh or Johnson or Boozer. I personally hate LeBron, but I'd love him on my team.

6. With Byron Scott being named head coach
Cleveland may be able to keep LeBron,

Bosh to New Jersey

Wade stays in Miami

New York will do a sign and trade with David Lee possibly for Amare or Joe Johnson

Dirk and Pierce will stay where they are

Boozer will go to Miami

10. LeBron Can Never Win in Cleveland
And if he goes to the Bulls or the Heat and wins a championship, it will be somewhat tainted.

14. If He Goes to CHI, He'll Be Playing in Jordan's Shadow
and will be seen as a carpetbagger.

If he goes to Miami, then he can only win with his buddy Dwayne Wade.

Either way, his championship, if he does win it, will be tainted.

12. Knicks near deal with Stoudemire
<snip>

"Amare Stoudemire and the New York Knicks are making progress in talks on a five-year, $100 million max contract and a deal could be completed as soon as Friday, league sources told Y! Sports.

The framework of the deal, which would give Stoudemire a $17.2 million starting salary next season, is in place and the two sides are expected to talk again soon, sources said. Stoudemire is expected to travel to New York on Saturday.

The Knicks and Stoudemire arent each others first choices, but Stoudemire wanted a fifth year guaranteed and the Knicks needed to have something to show for years of losing and working to clear cap space.

As Yahoo! Sports first reported, Stoudemires departure from the Suns was all but clinched after the Phoenix Suns reached agreement with forward Hakim Warrick on a four-year, $18 million contract, league sources said."

13. Didn't know they signed Warrick
Did know they resigned Channing Frye which I liked. He had a very good season and first two rounds in the playoffs. He did struggle greatly against the Lakers and played nowhere near his level with the exception of Game 4.

However it will be sad to see Amare go.
