Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

a few weeks back josh cribbs was on the hartman and friends radio show and he was so chill. he is such a winner it sucks that he is in cleveland, although he seemed genuinely happy and humble about getting a chance to play pro ball. anyway, he said while he wants lbj to stay, he felt that lbj might leave for the big city. he says lebron is the kind of guy who wants to make it on the big stage, etc. he mentioned new york specifically, although i'm sure chicago is also a pretty big city and may qualify in lebrons stupid eyes.

i'm sure cribbs has probably shared a drink/smoke/stripper/teenager/groupie with lebron a time or two so the info might be legit...

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

lol @ Josh Cribbs knowledge on LBJ.

Outside of LeBrons family I'm pretty sure Chris Broussard will be one of the first to know whats going to happen. Look for him to break the news in 45+ days

Huh? They have Shaq/Lebron expiring, that puts them at 48m.

And the cap is like $56 million. So they are going to someone for $8 mill who is going to make them good?

dunno what that means. probably double whammy in the morning (triple with the hangover teaching 1st period) seeing how this is cleveland sports.
sorry wiper hope you have a good drunk/high though.

I guess I don't understand NBA cap. There are bigger penalties for going over to sign free agents then to resign your own players, is that the catch?

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

shouldn't someone fix this (the part about how Danny Ferry's moves worked out, lol)?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_F...agement_career

when we look bad on the lebron era in cleveland, i think we'll say he lose because his teammates were stiffs and had no heart, because his head coach was a moron, and because his gm totally failed to put a winning cast around him

you cant go over the cap to sign a free agent. there are exceptions, like if he plays for you already, and some other stuff.

but if the cavs are 8m under the cap, there is no way they can sign joe johnson for 15m. its illegal.

Re: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs: Cavaliers vs Celtics

not sure if you are joking or not but im pretty subdued tonight. i had my meltdown after game 5 and have been numb since. was def shocked after game 5, and was actually pleasantly surprised by the effort tonight.

still cant help but think something else is going on. just never seen lebron play, and act like this.

I just figured it would be understandable if you either went out and got really wasted or, if you stayed in like this, called everyone a whole bunch of names. Instead you're being surprisingly genteel.
