Just curious.

It's obviously unlikely he even comes here (we ALL know that), but in past years when we were having FA meetings with players like Durant, Horford, Hayward, etc. this blog had a ton of excitement the days leading up to the meeting and during the day. Lots of updates, checking Twitter, hoping for good things to happen and come out of it.

If Lebron went on a big FA tour and that included Boston for a day (or few hours), how would you feel about it. Same kind of excitement/curiosity or would you just puke and not even bother thinking about it that day (hoping nothing good comes out of it)?  :laugh:

I wouldn’t invest much emotionally , because I think chances are slim of it happening.

If I see a Woj report about negotiations between the Cavs and Celts, though, I will be all in.

Yeah. I might be in the minority but if they do schedule a meeting of sorts, I'd be real intrigued. That said, I also HATE the idea of having to give up one of Kyrie/Hayward/Horford in some S&T or salary-dump kind move to fit him in.

Oh if only Lebron could be willing to sign here for MLE and then sign endorsement deals to make up for the max  :P

Otherwise I'm perfectly fine bringing back this team + Smart and Baynes hopefully. IF there's the slim chance Kawhi is on the trade block, I'd entertain it but I think he stays in San Antonio.

Really depends on what they have to give up...

I do not want to see Hayward sent out, nor Kyrie.

Prefer it would be Al.

But no way he comes to Boston IMO

Wonder if taking him to Fenway that day would be a good idea? 

Hopefully they're on the road that week! :)

Yeah I agree. I was just curious to see how people here would react IF we had a meeting with him sometime early July. I'm sure there'd be a lot of mixed emotions/feelings about that from the entire fanbase and city  :P

Well, last year, they also took Hayward to the site where the new Auerbach Center Practice Facility was being made (in construction at the time) and they met up with Jaylen there too. The facility is set to open June 19th, so they could hypothetically take him there (and Fenway)  :P

He’s an alleged Yankees fan.

Yankees / Cowboys / Lakers. Who does that?

I'm in the camp of I'd rather beat him than join him, but I would be fascinated and would be checking the internet every 5 minutes... or more likely every 45 seconds.

I think it is the Lakers, has always been the Lakers and things are already in motion. Think LA has been the plan for over a year now. The interesting thing will be who they get with him.

Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, are all staying...Randall is a goner...Can the get CP3 and George with
James?

Lebron will not call 1st to set up a meeting

He has spread this rumor funnelling down to Stephen A Smith, so that the list of teams will come tap his shoulders

Just the the Celtics and Warriors on the list were unexpected

The Warriors are not going to tap Lebrons shoulders

Celtics i doubt will. But who knows with Mr Sly, Danny Ainge

Maybe his angle is....  Kyrie you don't want to commit?   Well the Celtics can explore also

Ainge to Irving: I'm not giving you special privileges so that you will stay long term , mentality

While I'm not sure about his football fandom, I have a friend who at least used to root for the bookends, there, as it were, haha.

In terms of the thread, well, let's just say that I'd be seething, lol ;D.

If James opts into his deal before the 1st, then that opens up the door to a lot of teams. If he opts out, then it is really only the Lakers and Philly, most likely the Lakers

Every team has to listen if James comes calling. I like the guy. He's still the best player, no doubt. But his dominant years are probably behind him, and you have to be careful about changing your team too radically to accommodate him. That's why the safest bet is he listens to his family and stays in Cleveland.
