Trade or buy out Gilbert arenas!!! They never should have resigned him in the first place or just played him 20 mill for one year and have a team option on the second. He is the only major piece left from the Ernie grunfield era which was a disaster. He plays with guns in the locker room and this is the guy u want to lead ur team. We just changed ownership so now is the perfect time to make the move. So many teams have done everything they cab to make run at one or two max players but everyone won't get there wish and thus teams will be left with money to spend and in need of talent. Arenas is very talented but also a headache. I think he wore out his welcome in d.c. I could see him In new York becuse I don't see any of the max guys going to ny becuse they don't gave the right pieces around them. If they can't by him out, which would be my first option to have that money to spend this year. Wall, blatche, mcgee, to go with a super star at the two, three or the four is pretty attractive I think. Don't pick up the team option on the often hurt josh Howard. That's worth 10 million. Re sign Shaun Livingston for a few million a year. U have nic young coming off the bench as your wing scorer. Without signing a max player John wall becomes the highest payed player on the team. Throw in the qualifying offer for Randy foye for 4 million. And u have salary of ruffly 20 million with some pretty solid pieces. Now how attractive does the nations capital look to free agents. The salary cap is a little over 56 million for the 2010 2011 season. The cetics team salary is 80 sone million and the lakers is like 91 million this season. If the wizards were willing to pay the luxury tax they could get two max players. In a perfect world u could have a line up that looks like John wall at pg, sg I would start Shaun Livingston becuase he can handle the ball and is solid on d, he's only gonna get better as he gaines more confidence and his knee gets stronger. King James at the three d.c. Offers the global market lebron is lookin for. Amare or Chris bosh at the four. I like Amare but he's had some engeries and he's a little older but I think he causes more problem for the oposition. Andray blatche at the 5. U got a bench of javelle mcgee, nic young, and Randy foye. Now u need a shooter. U can even bring back mike miller for the right price and back up four like Carl landry or big baby, Paul millsap type resurve and a lockdown wing defender and u gave a dynasty for a few million over the salary cap. What do u guys think let me no if u guys would take agent zero and what would u give up for him. I wouldn't be askin much but only if we couldn't get a buyout for like 50 million so he could go where he wanted and we could stat fresh.
not happening, the wiz aint even on the Kinds radar n Obama himself wants james to go the Bulls who have way more young talent and Derrick Rose, who by all means is better then Wall now n has just as high a ceiling Wall has. plus the Bulls got Noah a defensive force playing either center or four, and Deng, not to mention John Salmons n Kirk Hinrich who they should b able to trade for another piece. If Bron Leaves which i dont want him too but wouldnt blame him i would love to see him go to the CLips just to prove hes better then Kobe n he'll b in a major market wit ties to China, plus Imagine this
PG: Baron Davis
SG: Eric Gordon
SF: LeBron James
PF: Blake "Rookie of the Year" Griffin
C: Chris "Top 5 Pure Center in league" Kamen
The 8th pick
Thats a strong a fast team thats gonna be hard to beat in the open court wit B-Diddy, Gordon, James, Blake,
And also the Half Court wit Kamen controllin the post, B-Diddy controllin the offense, Gordon hittin open threes, and James just owning everybody.
Think About it
The Wizards need to keep Arenas. You are not going to get fair value if you're the Wizards. At least see how good he does as a SG or unless they get an offer they can't refuse.
The clipps have a good arguement but I think the line up the wizards could put together is better and I think it would be wise for lebron to stay in the east and avoid the lakers, thunder and trailblazers until the finals
But the East has Orlando and Celtics.
The West overall may have more better teams, but there is really only one great team in the Lakers. While the East has two great teams in the Magic and Celtics.
Go west young man.
Many of those players you have listed on the bench are free agents this summer and who knows if they come back. So you can assume that the Clippers bench will be that strong.
can should be can't sorry.
Dwight howard has no post game. Orlando doesn't scare me. The celtics are old and may have one more run at a title at the most. The west has the lakers who are in there prime and the thunder and blazers who are about to enter theirs shortly. Lebron would have to contend with these two for 8 years
