Default LeBron: I Shouldn't Have To Tell The Front Office To Get Kidd

Looks like LeBron is making one final plea (or not) to Cavs management to get their act together and get Kidd to Cleveland, STAT!!

"It's Jason Kidd. It's not someone else asking for a trade. It's Jason Kidd. You shouldn't have to go to anybody in the front office for them to be ready to try to jump on it."

I don't think Cleveland has the pieces to pick up a guy like Kidd. The reported 3 way deal invxolving Portland and Dallas gives New jersey WAY better pieces (youth and expiring contracts)

not only that, but is kidd even a player that will give you more than 2 years?

Seriously, it's so easy for these superstars to try to convince management to go after big players, but then they're (managment) the ones who have to look at the big picture in terms of years later - and what you give up to get a player like Kidd is usually youngins.


These Lebron comments are a classic case of not seeing the forest, but only the trees.
i.e., i wonder how Vince felt about the Hakeem pickup after some time passed? Oh yeah, he realized he was on a shitty team, stopped trying and demanded to be traded.

Fuck... i'll always remember Vinces gay press conference: "We got Dream?" yeah. you got him alright, Vince. You got what you asked for.

Lebrons a fucking douchebag. You dont diss your fucking management like that. Just because he doesnt see in th media that theyre going after Kidd doesnt mean they arent behind closed doors. What a fuckface.

I'm pretty sure he's dissing the media for asking a dumb question if he's dissing anyone..not his management. He's right..he shouldn't have to and really what does it have to do with him? I think he's downplaying the likely unofficial stamp he gives to management moves and putting his faith in them to the public.

uhhh... i don't think he's really dissing anyone per se.

But it is totally a case of him lobbying to get Jason Kidd into Cleveland. I don't know how in the world you interpreted that comment SWAN, but it's pretty obvious any "inference" in his statement is directed to the Cavs organization more than to the media.

I mean he's literally saying that the Cavs should "jump on" a trade.

Well I disagree...anything he wants the organization to do..I think he's smart enough to know he should do that behind closed doors. To me it sounds like just a Sam Mitchell answer to an irrelevant question(in other words asking the wrong guy).

If that's the case, he doesn't do a very good job.

Blame that on the lack of a post-secondary education.
