I wouldnt get used to wiggins - he's not even under contract according to Winhorst...

Love 3x Allstar & Olympian - top 10 player in the league - 6th in MVP 2012- EVERYDAY over wiggins - do we need to recall just last year & the bust that was #1 overall Anthony Bennett? Wiggins may be the next Pippen  (top 50 all itme player)- but more likely to be one of these last 15 overall #1's :the next Elton Brand, Olokwandi, Kame Brown, Andrew Bogut, Kenyon Martin, Bargnani, Bennett, or even Derrick Rose or Greg Oden (injuries).

two words - 7 years.

He gave them 7 years & "impending" free agency should have only lit a fire under Ferry - it's not an excuse - it's an incentive.

so take a postion rather than jousting (which is what you do best) - is it over or not? Im not "people: - ive said all along he is done - and chandler signed after this post

Agreed - this team does not win with a re-signed Wade - you take James & Bosh & add a Melo plus a tyson Chandler & they are back - plus Melo actually has a perimeter game - Wades' game is over.

Why does the guy need to sign the biggest contract to have your respect? He made 5x in endorsements last year - including 32 million from Beats alone...It's clearly not about the money - it's about building a championship team. The bottom line is you will hate Lebron regardless of his choice. EVERYBODY in EVERY major sport restructures their contracts to sign more talent - ie Tom Brady - Peyton Manning - it's how it's done.

Easy way out? he gave the first 7 years of his career & r-esigned with a franchise that surrounded him with relics (Shaq - Jamison to name a couple -) what good is it to be the best in the world when your GM was the worst in the league  & your owner is a total douche?

Lebron will not take 15 mil less - period. Maybe 2-5 mil, AS he was paid 16 mill last season & will at least require that. SB nation has already done a scenario on this and AV will have to go. Craft as a starter? I LOVE the rosy cheeked assassin, but he wont make an NBA roster! Embiid has a bad back & now a broken leg - so of course the Cavs; will draft him.

LeBron will not play for Dan Gilbert again - EVER.

Nothing in this scenario will happen.

I am sacrificially giving up 10 DV's here, but usem if you got em.  I agree that there is nothing to get excited about the 38th ranked class - YET. Most of these guys had 0-2 major FBS offers - our slow start is hampered by the fact we are also signing 3 stars instead of 4 & 5 like the SEC.

That doesn't mean it WON'T get better, but for now this is a MAC level class - people need to get real with where we are - so starved for gray boxes around here that ANY commitment gets the majority excited.

Was my favorite recruit in this class - beginning from the monster Sparq numbers. Really saw him as the next lil Animal... with similar size & great character. Will miss this kid but Texas Tech has a new fan in me.

2 words - John Gruden.

He ascended to a super bowl winning Head coach & was the scrubby backup QB at D3 Dayton.

My son has done two sessions with his "Black Ops" training - and he has gone to about 5 other different qB schools, Whitfileds was by far the best & he gained more from that than anyone....
