No this isn't a Lebron James is coming to LA on vacation and he's meeting with some Clipper officials, and no I don't have any hot tips, tweets, twats or w/e. I love Lebron as a player. He's awesome. He doesn't have the greatest long ball, but he can score, change a game, pass, play D, take a poor team into a playoff team and he's a fun guy it seems. Great, nuff' said. Guess whats still going on? ( depending when you read this post ). The NBA Playoffs. Yes, I am a loyal die-hard Clipper fan and I realize our season....

Also, my 2 cents on all free agents.

With a majority of the big spenders all targeting Lebron James we need to either figure we can nab him or go in a different direction and try to swoop someone else away while they are below the Lebron Radar. Think if we could land say Chris Bosh, D Wade or Joe Johnson you get the idea whilst everyone is looking at Lebron.

Go in there ( at the free agent market ) with a solid game plan and send everything you got at 1 guy, that is OUR guy. Covet this guy from the minute the clock hits midnight and praise him, our city and our club.

If things don't work out for our 1 selected player ( and after we of course toss every penny we have at Lebron ) then sign a few mid level guys. Build a solid roster and try to win 37 games next year and keep some cap space available for future free agents or trades.

Per another post, I think LeBron may have had a bad elbow. Plusses for LAC. Younger Talented roster, young but not untested. Every player (BG I hope) can bust a cap in your donkey (No Cap Space pun intended). LeBron is a Motivator and BD because of pure ego will step up. Anyway if we keep Drew and he plays like last year who needs BG?

30% Cavs, 30% Clipps, 40% something stupid

Taylor, we can keep this Lebron talk going until he signs with another team or re-signs with the Cavs. That's not the problem. The problem lies in everyone trying to be creative with the same message. There can only be so much you can say about wanting a player here but if it's nothing new, I would kindly suggest adding on to the current overflow of LBJ threads. I'll keep this one going cause you did add something different but if the trend continues with more of the same, I'll have to merge all the threads together.

Good read by the way...

Edit: I changed the title to make it more specific.

Even if the Clippers won three titles in a row, they would still be the "other team" in LA. I kindof equate it to the Dodgers/Angels. For a while, the Angels were always in the title hunt but the Dodgers were still the varsity team in LA. More than anything, Los Angeles is Lakers-town. You don't just wipe out Jerry West, Magic Johnson, Elgin Baylor (before he became a joke), Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem, showtime, Jack, Shaq/Kobe, etc...overnight. The Lakers define the excellence of LA and, if it weren't for them, LA would be a total....
