I know, you're all probably tired of all this LeBron talk. LeBron this, LeBron that... yeah yeah, enough already, just sign somewhere. Once LeBron falls... so do the rest of the dominoes. But before he signs, let's get some last minute predictions. Where does LeBron end up and why?

This is also a chance for you guys to tell everyone, "I told you so," once he signs.

Cleveland is my choice. I think the only other team with a shot it Chicago. No way he goes to NY or NJ.

He's strongly considering staying in Cleveland, and also Chicago... but I think he'll end up in Miami if Wade and Bosh are there. Seriously.

btw, the Knicks have been preparing for this offseason for years... and may end up with... Joe Johnson, maybe????. Priceless... :mrgreen:


(btw, I think it's a pipe dream. Nice... but not possible. I think Amare or Boozer will sign there and they'll have a somewhat successful offseason)

Joe Johnson is staying in ATL. They offered him a 6 year max deal. Have no idea what they are thinking. but I like it because that deal can only increase our miniscule chances at getting Horford at some point down the road. Horford is a pipe dream that I refuse to let go!

Didn't know about that. A 6 YEARS MAX DEAL!!!!!


Ok, Atlanta's doomed... Count me in for getting Horford somehow, Bada. I'd LOVE to have him.

$119 million for a guy who kills ball movement and completely quit on his team. BRILLIANT!!! Makes Riley and Rowell look competant.

And I should qualify this a bit more... I think it depends on what you value and are looking for.

Smith is a fantastic player and if you are looking for a dynamic, explose, and exciting player... Smith > Horford.

But Horford, while not flashy, does everything that you would want from a C/PF. He really has NO weakness. Other than post defense, he probably is not GREAT at anything, but he can score with effeciency both from the post and mid-range, he is a great passer for a big man, shoots a good FT %, good rebounder, good shot blocker, and is one of the top 3 interior defenders in the league. In fact he led the league last season in fewest points allowed per post possession. Better than Howard... better than anyone.

But more importantly, he ALWAYS plays hard and NEVER gives up on his team unlike Johnson and Smith. Both of those guys completely quit on their team when the chips were down in the playoffs. Tells me a lot about character. Very easy to play hard when things are going right, but I look at what guys are made of when things are going rough.

yep, as warrior fans, we need to root for the existence of incompetent teams. Glad to see Joe Johnson to be offered a 6 year, Max deal. He was awful in the playoffs (deer in headlights). Don't get the offer and don't care. Hope he likes Hotlanta.

Ummm Bada, if you watched the Hawks games, you'd see how much Horford owes Josh Smith when it comes to defense. How many times does Josh have to come from nowhere to block a shot to save Horford who just got raped in the post? Josh is also an impact player, makes star type plays, game winning dunks n sh*t, Horford is a good guy to have, but there's guys who can put up his line all over the league. Josh Smith makes Horford better... can't say the same about Horford for Smith.
