    Jul 3, 2010, 2:37 AM EDT

    Friday night, the Chicago Bulls had a tandem with them in a room — Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — that combined could turn them into an instant title contender.

    Jul 2, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    In all the talk about pairing up top players — LeBron and Wade in Chicago; LeBron and Bosh in Chicago; Bosh and Wade in Miami; Bosh and Wade and LeBron in Miami — nobody talks about Cleveland. But it could happen. What if Cleveland re-signs LeBron and does a sign and trade with the Raptors…

  12. Have the Miami Heat contacted you? They've reached out to everyone else.

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    You think the human beings have yet to be cloned successfully. But after looking at what the Miami Heat have been up to in the first hours of free agency, I am convinced someone in Heat HQ has cracked the code. Otherwise there is no way they could have been in all these places. This…

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Do the Cavaliers seem desperate to keep LeBron James in Cleveland? They should. They have good reason. About 250 million reasons.

  16. Winderman: The negative campaigning to get LeBron may backfire

    Jun 30, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    This was supposed to be a relatively simple process when it came to recruiting LeBron James: Sell your wares and build fears about how the Cavaliers simply have not done enough for James for him to remain in Cleveland. That was the notion back at the start of the season, when the Cavaliers were the…

  17. Raptors' preference for a Chris Bosh sign-and-trade likely means more suitors than ever and a better chance for a Miami supergroup

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Why should the teams with cap space get to have all the fun? Even if the Cavs don’t want any part of a sign-and-trade for LeBron and Dwyane Wade seems locked into Miami, the Raptors not only appear open to the idea of signing-and-trading Chris Bosh, but Bryan Colangelo actually prefers it. From Marc J.…

  21. Isiah Thomas would like to tell you his thoughts on LeBron. Tell us, Isiah!

    Jun 30, 2010, 12:16 AM EDT

    Whichever team loses out on this summer’s free agency will be devastated.

It will still pale in comparison to the abject destruction left in…

    Jun 29, 2010, 4:39 PM EDT

    If you have LeBron James, you do nothing to help him leave. Nothing. Under any circumstances. Even if it means more long-term pain. Do a sign-and-trade and the fan base will never forgive you.
