    This is the type of "haircut" deal Bron needs to take for Jules & George to fit in without a Deng dump. Bron would shave roughly 5M off his max with this type of deal, but it can be less if George and Jules do the same.

    Since we opened up enough cap for 2max players, I'm in the camp where we don't dump Deng just to give Bron, George and Jules a few million more. I rather use the assets in a Deng dump to either trade for Bron/George (via the Cp3 route) or trade for another star (ie AD). Losing even faceless 1st round picks via a Deng dump just to pay these millionaires more money is no bueno for me.

    Let's either get a third team on the phone to dump Deng onto so that any incoming salary helps the roster depth rather than fill the wallet depth of Bron, George & Jules...Or we can simply stretch him and not include any trade assets if it really had to come to that.

    Bottomline: Dump Deng (along with assets) only for more roster help via a trade for a star or a TPE to use later. Do not dump Deng (along with assets) to make the rich richer.

    Even if he was the greatest6 MJ will be more popular because MJ actually has charisma.

    My quote was in reference to a Wade reference. Sorry for the confusion. I don’t see him leaving. But Riley got his way. Didn’t pay the big money, but got his fan favorite back to finish his career

    I could definitely see Wade chasing the money/ring to a warm place. I definitely cannot see Wade chasing the money/ring to a cold place.

    He probably stays in Miami.

    Also f*** Skip Bayless. He is cancer to an intelligent mind.

    Yeah, but you're trolling of Lebron is so much more artistic and...and...fecal. Skip essentially repeats Youtube comments. No originality. And I cannot get over how big of a douche bag he looks like in his profile pic.

    Yeah this has little to do with his feelings toward LeBron. Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith, Colin Cowherd, that Nick Wright character, they're all examples of exactly what's wrong with sports media. Posting their opinions anywhere is a validation of their careers which should not exist.

    Fox Sports signed him to a 5 year 25 million contract. So getting paid 5 mio. a year to troll the sports world...for some people the world just works in their favor.

    These guys sold their soul for it. Any one of us could get out there and be obnoxious enough to make people angry, but I respect myself too much to do it (until someone throws 10 million at me).
