Question 2010 FA Predictions: Who's staying? Whos going? - YOU PICK!

Since the conference finals are amongst us lets play alittle game:

Alot of drama has occured this final year before the big FA market of 2010:

-Dirks mavs 1st round exit again & him looking confused about his future
-Spurs team old and just cant compete no more
-Wade cant do it all by himself and got no help
-JJ's Hawks getting embarrased
-Boozers Jazz getting swept
-Bosh's Raptors missing playoffs once again
-PHX having a great run with Amare & Nash
-Lebron possibly not even making the Conference finals...

So who's RF's Nostradamus?

Whos leaving and whos staying... either thru S&T or just walking:

1. Joe Johnson
2. Carlos Boozer
3. LeBron James
4. Chris Bosh
5. Dirk Nowitzki
6. Manu Ginobili
7. Dwyane Wade
8. Amare Stoudemire
9. Ray Allen
10. Rudy Gay

Yeah, back in April. The media reported on it as if it was official. I thought Ginobs got $13 mill/per for 3 seasons = 40 mill contract.

Out of that list, the only ones that go are Joe Johnson, Carlos Boozer and Rudy Gay. Ironically, It could be JJ and Boozer in NY

This thread should be stickied until preseason IMO...Or favorited by someone at least. My predictions:

1. Joe Johnson - 100% gone especially after his comments to the ATL fans.
2. Carlos Boozer- 100% gone
3. LeBron James- Going to NY unless CLE signs one of the other 9 on this list before Lebron makes his decision.
4. Chris Bosh- My heart says he stays, my brain says he goes to CHI or a West team.
5. Dirk Nowitzki- He retires a Mav because Cuban will do everything humanly possible to keep him.
6. Manu Ginobili- Already signed an extension.
7. Dwyane Wade- Stays a Heat.
8. Amare Stoudemire- Gone to MIA/CHI. I hope its CHI because hed be an absolute perfect fit there.
9. Ray Allen- Gone. Boston is already locked up with Pierce/KG I dont think they're going to want to keep Allen and try and hold on for dear life when realistically this is their last year contending with the same group.
10. Rudy Gay- 100% gone

Agree with you 100% except i feel Bosh will only go to CHI if Wade goes there.

I dont get why people think CHI can/will get 2 superstars beside Rose. Has any team ever had 3 superstars who can avg 24 ppg+ on the same team at once? And if so, ever won? Looking back on the champions of the last 20 years, its been Shaq/Kobe, Duncan/Robinson, or Duncan/Ginobili/Parker, Jordan/Pippen, Hakeem/Drexler, Hakeem+role players. The only thing close to the 20+ppg guys is fast teams like the Warriors back in the day I think, and the Suns recently(thought even then I dont consider Marion a true 20+ ppg guy)

CHI only needs a star PF and some bench parts really. I dont think Rose and Wade would work, theyre a mismatched pairing in the backcourt, and then another 24ppg guy up front? Just cant see it ever happening nor working.

CHI should only be focusing on getting a star PF, not getting a star SG like Johnson or Wade who need the ball in their hands most of the time to be effective and will slow down Rose's rapid development. He needs a shooter/defender at SG that doesnt need a lot of touches, not someone who will take the reigns of the offence away from him.

agree with thriller
CHI need scoring 4 and maybe good shooting guard, not another ball stopper
therefore either Boozer or Bosh will be good fit for them
Amare should be also on this list, but he must be insane to leave Nash (I hope his close ones talk him to stay in PHX)

so here we go:
1. Joe Johnson- gone
2. Carlos Boozer- gone
3. LeBron James- gone
4. Chris Bosh- gone
5. Dirk Nowitzki- stay
6. Manu Ginobili- stay
7. Dwyane Wade- stay
8. Amare Stoudemire- stay
9. Ray Allen- stay
10. Rudy Gay- gone

Why is Boozer leaving? He plays with arguably the best pg in the league and a lot of 2nd round steals from the draft who have upside. If they add another scorer to their lineup, I think they're set.
