Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Isn't there some sort of rule against Team Trinity? That has to violate some sort of anti-trust laws. Hopefully they don't get Bosh/Wade/Lebron on the same team and if they do then hopefully the lack of role players will result in the teams downfall. However finding two or three guys to score 20 points shouldn't be to hard with Lebron, Wade, and Bosh possibly putting up 86 points a night (24+29+33 ppg).

Thankfully, I don't think this is going to happen. D-Wade's staying in Miami and I don't think Lebron's going there... Plus, Amare stated that Riley told him he, Lebron and Wade could play together for 15/year. Each would be losing nearly 5/year to play with each other and over the course of a four or five year contract, that would be too much of a loss for any of those guys (even with endorsements).

I think Bosh is the only sure thing leaving his team, either outright or S&T. I know he'd like to play with Lebron, but what he's doing in this circus is anyone's guess. I could see him alongside Wade in Miami, but they're both going to want close to max money (leaving no room for a third star). Miami should try to find a taker for Beasley, but I'm not sure anyone's biting.

great way to look at it

why not?

the more superstars on one team the lower the PPG will go most likely

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

There are some absolutely stupid contracts being offered today. Darko, Amir Johnson and Rudy Gay are getting paid. Joe Johnson's max offer has just let the Wiz off the hook for worst contract of the past few seasons... Atlanta's going to be crippled for five or six seasons.

Mike Miller's probably getting around 7 million in this market.

I know but at the very least you're looking at 60 ppg between the three of them. So if you're a defensive team like the Celtics then you just need a few guys that can put up 20 or 30 ppg combined. If you want a little more offense then all you need is 30 or 40 which between 8 guys shouldn't be that hard, even if you are talking about a group of min contract players.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Miller to Lakers?

Well, I was off by a million- but that's a solid contract for Mike. The dude is pretty versatile and he's the perfect fit in the triangle. I'm glad he's finally going to a team with a chance to win now (even though I hate the Lakers).

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

So Gilbert won't be wearing #6 next year after all. Won't be wearing #0 either.

Truth About It Gilbert Arenas’ Jersey Number, It Won’t Be No. 6


#13 is a good choice, that was my number.

He won't wear no. 6 because that's the number LeBron is going to wear no. 6 this year and when LeBron signs with the Knicks and Arenas is traded o NY in a deal for Curry's contract he'd have to switch numbers again

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Mentioned in another thread that Randy Foye has signed with the Clippers and Miller is weighing options from a few teams (among them Miami and New York) so that trade essentially netted us nothing but some dollars to spend on...Josh Childress?

And on a sad note, RIP Dinner Bell Mel

21 points and 13 boards for JaVale tonight and Wall with 24 points and 8 assists, 8 turnovers as well though. Want to see him cut back on the turnovers
