Bosh won't be going to any garbage team that's WORSE than the Raps now.

So that means no N.Y., no PHI and no NOK.

It makes no sense for him to leave us (the team that can give him the most cash) just to go to another team that's going to be a bottom-feeder.

Depending on how he plays... you never know.

As soon as Bosh goes to NJ another superstar will join.

Not. Btw Miller has a three year deal, 2 yrs guaranteed. Also, expirings don't equal cap space. Remember the Hedo deal? would have to pull off something like that for Gay. And that wouldn't be possible without giving anything up. very unrealistic imo
Fuck... ur right about miller. O well, Outlaw is good enough

tmac is done - at this age and with a game relying on athleticism, you just don't recover from microfracture surgery.

but even if he still had some in the tank, trading bargani for him would be a really bad move. We'd still be a 41 wins team, and at the end of the year we'd lose Bosh and tmac and be left with NOTHING ...

Lol.... like who?

Please don't tell me that Chris Paul, Wade, or Lebron are going to NJ to team up with Bosh.... because that will NEVER (and I mean NEVER) happen.

KG hasn't looked too bad... and neither has Amare (although he's a bit younger). Of course BC and the team doctors would have have a look at him to determine how good he looks. I'm not advocating trading for him blindly.

I'm surprised that the Rox aren't playing him... if he showed well they could potentially get a deal for him in a trade.

Joe Johnson....We don't necessarily have to trade the guy to new jersey, Chicago is also an option rose/miller/Noah for Bosh/banks

Joe Johnson won't be going there either.

Honestly.... I know you're big into the trade scenarios but you have to take into account the fact that Bosh has played for a subpar team for SEVEN years.... he's not going to another one in a S & T.

Tell me this... why WOULDN'T he go to MIA in the off-season and sign to play with Wade?

Are you going to tell me that NJ, CHI or wherever is a better scenario FOR HIM (not for us) than that?

He is gonna play with wade... We all know hes gonna opt out. Regardless of the team he goes to. I dont think the others are aware of that.

The only city that I could see having that kind of allure would be N.Y.... and there's no way in hell that they can afford TWO superstar players this offseason.. much less 3.

Lebron is going to New York, The cavs have no monez to sign another superstar. It will the same team for many years to come. I will find the article.

Possible but I'll believe it when I see it.

Even so, that's not going to leave much money for the rest of the team. They're capped out big time.

Last season, according to league sources that spoke with Plain-Dealer, the Cavs just about broke even operationally.

Cleveland's payroll that exceeded $100 million including luxury taxes, the highest in team history.

It was more than offset by selling out 37 regular-season games and seven playoff games, and huge apparel sales that led to record revenue. The Cavs were then helped by getting a $6 million check as part of the salary rebate from the players.

"We have been very fortunate, our fans have continued to show us tremendous support," said Len Komoroski, the president of the Cavaliers and The Q. "We have seen it in many different levels from record ticket sales, television ratings and Web hits."

Lebron is Gone

why are u guys so negative about Bosh leaving, i really want him to stay in TO and if toronto turns it around and gets around 6th to 5th seed i think he will stay, yes Bosh wants to win a championship, but Bosh also wants to get treated like a superstar and being a superstar often means leading the team, Bosh loves TO but he loves winning if this team can get some good defence players this summer while still having Bosh this team will be as good as boston im telling you...

If Bosh says he is one of the top players in the nba why the hell would we want to play 3rd or 2nd fiddle on another team it just doesnt make sense he will also lose alot of fans and fans are important to him

well maybe it will not but i remember when karl malone join to lakers he made gary payton a condition..maybe that kind of situation can happen..

by the way you are talking so certain like this will NOT happen or Bosh won't be going to any garbage team or that will NEVER happen..

you must have a trusworthy informant..

do you have a red line to GM's..

no offence
