Im definitely happy.. I mean Ive been pretty ticked off lately because of the constant storyline of Lebron and Wade.. instead of Dallas kicking butt..

I mean for what its worth.. They swept the Fav. Lakers.. and beat the Big bad heat.. the story line is still Lebron's great failure..lol..

But on topic... Bosh actually played a Great game last night.. but that's it.. just last night.. I would trade Bosh as well.. He's really not all that good.. Kinda surprise of all the hype his addition has cause this season ...

You know the one guy that I actually liked on the heat was Mario Chalmers. He was really clutch on a few shots during the finals.. But It looked to me that James and Wade both talked down to the kid .. Even in Game 6.. He actually was pressing to create a shot unlike the Big 3...

After a few weeks i think we're going to hear alot of Lebron Apologist that will say it was only their first year ..

Boston didnt have to wait 2 years to get their championship after the big trade..

A good long summer with the addition of probably some anxiety over the labor discussion should be quite nice for James.. and some Cavs fans. lol

if that is from the Governor of OHio it is.. Making the mavericks honorary ohioians..lol..

Quote:
Gilbert wasn't the only one stung by James' decision. John Kasich, governor in James' home state of Ohio, issued a resolution Monday praising the Mavericks.

Without naming James, Kasich's resolution commends the Mavericks for their "loyalty, integrity and teamwork." He also makes them honorary Ohioans.

The resolution singles out MVP Dirk Nowitzki for choosing to re-sign with the Mavericks and forego free agency in the summer of 2010, "thus remaining loyal to the team, city and fans for whom he played his entire career." James made an opposite choice by departing the Cavaliers for Miami when he became a free agent.

The resolution says "the proud city of Cleveland and the entire state of Ohio share in the excitement of Dallas Mavericks fans everywhere."
here's the espn link to their article where the quote was taken fun.. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playof...ory?id=6655486

The owner of the Cavaliers also owns Fathead, the company that makes large wall decals of athletes. When LeBrron blew Cleveland off, the owner put the inventory of LeBron in a Cavaliers uniform on sale....instead of the normal $99.99, the price was $17.41.....the year Benedict Arnold was born.

It sucks that LeBron left the way he did but at least Cleveland isn't bitter about it.

The infamous decision actually helped LeBron's image according to jersey sales. Assuming people aren't buying $100 jerseys to set on fire.

Here is the complete list of top 15 sellers from the start of the 2010-2011 season, based on sales on NBAStore.com :

1. LeBron James, Miami Heat
2. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
3. Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics
4. Amar'e Stoudemire, New York Knicks
5. Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls
6. Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat
7. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
8. Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks
9. Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic
10. John Wall, Washington Wizards
11. Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers
12. Shaquille O'Neal, Boston Celtics
13. Ray Allen, Boston Celtics
14. Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics
15. Kevin Garnett, Boston Celtics

Here's a look at the 2009-2010 season:

1. Kobe Bryant - Lakers
2. LeBron James - Cavaliers
3. Dwight Howard- Magic
4. Derrick Rose - Bulls
5. Dwyane Wade - Heat
6. Kevin Garnett - Celtics


As an aside: How is Melo so low on this list? It's from mid April so maybe not enough time has passed but there was a ton of hype about that one and a lot of enthusiastic Knick fans.
