Default Lebron James to sign extension this summer?

Quote:
James said Saturday that he is going to consider signing an extension with the Cavaliers this summer, well before he can become an unrestricted free agent. "You play out this season of course; I will consider it," James said Saturday before the Cavs practiced at the Pepsi Center. "The direction we are headed is everything I expected and more."

It's just talk.

There is no way he will limit his options like that. The only reason a player would ever do that is if they feared an injury. Lebron could destroy his knee tomorrow and still would be worth a max contract.

Damn this would suck for New York and all them other teams.

But the class would still be stacked. Amare, Wade, Bosh and so on.

True, altho the likelyhood of all three of them changing teams is pretty low IMO. especially Wade, i could see wanting to go to a city like NY if you're in Cleveland or somethin, but South Beach aint a bad place to be. I doubt he'd take a pay cut to go to NY when he could sign a bigger extension to stay in Miami.

Default Re: Lebron James to sign extension this summer?

he isnt coming to new york even if he doesnt sign it. Lebron loves his hometown and he already said at a obama rally that he is staying. THe only reason he would opt out is to get a bigger contract from cavs and force them to improve the team.

lol you people are idiots. 'why would he limit his options'

What other option is there other than winning? And who offers him that better than Cleveland who have salary cap flexibility and young talent?



Besides, more than 70% of those 'free' agents will do the same thing.

Scust at the ignorance on this board.

Default Re: Lebron James to sign extension this summer?

LMAO!! I really hope he signs especially since New York just broke up what was possibly a playoff team just to clear space to sign him. That would be hilarious. Plus I'd like to see LeBron stick with the Cavaliers as most of the great players stayed on one team and won a championship or many championships with their original team... Magic, Bird, Jordan, Duncan, etc.

Well then why not just wait until he's a free agent and still re-sign with Cleveland?

Who knows what teams will look like in 2010. There could be a better situation for him to go to and he'd be dumb not to just wait and explore that. If not, he can still just stay with Cleveland who will be able to offer him more money than anyone else.

Cleveland actually as a legit chance at winning it all this season. IMO, if he wins a championship with this team then he re-signs this summer.

You're not acting smart right now.

Other than ___, what incentive is there for him to sign in 2010 rather than '09' especially if Cleveland has a long-term plan to win for the next 5-7 years?

And what would be the BIGGEST enticement for a prime time free agent to come to Cleveland???

Yes, can all say it togther -- FOR LEBRON TO ALREADY BE SIGNED.

This isnt tocket science. LeBron claims to be the leader of the Cavs. He claims he wants to win.

So...

That means a leader who wants to win will lead by example and show his teammates that this (Cleveland) is the place he wants to be by commiting to the organization as soon as he could.__
