Definitely some good news to hear.

Now (to Bosh), take a pay cut and we'll happily bring you along as that'd give us even greater flexibility to sign players.

Seriously, am I the only person here, who would sign a slightly smaller contract so that it can better the team and help the team sign players to win a championship?

The difference between say 13 million and 20 million is simply based on greed and status. Nothing else.

Okay, I think we'd all take a paycut cause we could use the money, but lets imagine we are Bosh, or better yet, Lebron. Do you want to stay with Cleveland and sign for 10 mill, or go to New York, NJ ext. where you could earn 15 - 20 million a year?

That's a tough thing to do when you're working for a company that makes billions. IF I was in that situation, I'd take the pay cut if the raps were a tax team... not to keep them from paying the tax.

Wade is essentially telling Riley to make some trades b/c he sees the effort Ferry and Colangelo are putting forth to keep LBJ/Bosh

1 thing i am always confused about with these 2 guys. They both say they will stay with their respective teams if they are winning and on track to a championship. However, they both want to play together which is an unsaid underlying factor.

In my view those 2 together on a team is enough to vault them to the top and sprinkle some pieces around them and your done. Right now Miami is in a position to get Bosh with JO expiring contract while we are no longer in the same position to get Wade.

So having said all that if Miami is mediocre this year all they have to say to Wade to keep him is we will get Bosh and that's a done deal on both criteria winning and playing together. Toronto cant say or do the same.

Based on what has been transpiring I think it's inevitable Bosh ends up in Miami.

I thought the difference between 20 and 13 is 7, but I've been out of school for a while.
