My dicks getting hard....The guy makes some good points there. Its a pipe dream though. I love his point, that doing the opposite of what everyone thinks and says you should do is what will make him really legendary, not marketing legendary.
Cap guys... what would have to happen to make this happen? Obviously the luxury tax means nothing, because if you have Lebron, cash follows. The money in jersey sales and ticket sales would increase 10 fold. Thats just tickets and jerseys. But getting under the salary cap would be the deal.
Possible a sign and trade?
Say Lebron lets it be known that he is leaving Cleveland and would like to play in Charlotte. Cleveland could lose Lebron for nothing. So Nike, Jordan, Charlotte intervene and say look Cleveland, sign him to a max deal or whatever and then trade him to us. We will send you Gerald Wallace, Boris Diaw, next years 1st and 2nd round picks and Raja's trade exemption. You either lose him straight up, or you get some good peices in return.
Jackson / Hendo
Lebron / Brown
Tyrus / Ajinca / Brown
Tyson / Ajinca / Nazr
That roster including Diop would leave us with about 17 million in cap space under the suspected 56.1 future cap. After that year a lot of salaries like Nazr and Tyson would come off the books. Am i way off here?
I dont know, but i just spent way too much time spitballing something that will never happen. carry on.
