What I'd get for MYself if I were Lebron James666

What I would do...if given the chance, to be LeBron James .

If I were LeBron James...I would demand a sign and trade AWAY from Cleveland.

Sorry, Mistake by the Lake. It's time to be your monster, but become the legand of everyone elses' little guy who is getting out of the little town, and dominating the big city, and then THE WORLD. Cry babies...give give give, it's better for us, not for you, we dont want to put forth the effort to grow and survive. Sounds a little like Jesus...except he DOESN't save us....awful...Lebron James is the son of Satan.
If the team can't work it out that I want to go to, then that's OBVIOUSLY not where I'm going. Because they aren't doing what I want...

Ah, Yes...New York...You will do ANYTHING I SAY...wont you? save your pretty city, "bring us out of the last ROTTING DECADE, sweet savior of filth." you say. Of course...under these following conditions...

#1 - Three words....Max Con Tract. That's right...128 mill or whatevah. Get it done...Six Years servants.

#2 - Eddy Curry and Danillo Galinarieiirie---er whatever, I dont care, I'm the King!....gone. They leave in the Sign and Trade...buh-bye....and get me a 2nd round pick from someone, anyone, doesn't matter...I'm going to make that kid my bitch to fetch me my Crayons and fresh sashimi...and turn him into the next "Side kick on Lebron's Team." he he...stupid SKOLTs.

#3 - Gilbert Arenas ...muh mis-understood Friend. You've got lots of money...use it and get his "gonna be the next NYC Plaxico Buress" PG over here. I want a man that can make shots, and with our alleged "rivalry" I'd rather get more play on that story during the season, which would be BETTER than Artest and Kobe...3 points Lebron...*ting*....and LEBRONIMATE the Knicks vs Heat Rivalry. It's a match made in heaven, and my career, and legacy...and religious following...one....billion....dolla

rs............whatevah...Sign that white guy you've got that everyone RAVES about, and sign Mike Miller too, and ship them whities over to Washington for Gilbert (this is why Gilbert has changed his mind about #6, because that's gonna be My Number!!!...or should I say THE NUMBER!!!!!!666....) that Blatche goofball, and my lazy friend Nick Young ...

#4 - So, you've got me my squad so far...ME...(I always come 1st) then Gilbert Arenas, Amare Stoudemire, Tony Douglas (my new goblin,) Wilson Chandler , and Bill Walker . You know that contract about Eric Dampier and Dallas? Yeah....We'll take him....we'll waive him...and then offer him a contract he CAN't REFUSE....an MLE to come play with ME after the two months has passed...

#5 - Carlos Boozer ....get that man some money...just enough that will fit in our budget...which is practicly nothing....but if he wants in on this party, he better leave some cake on the table...plus...he knows he'll be part of the best entourage in New LeBrork. Everyone else...just make sure they pass through my inspection...I'm sure they will start ligning up outside to ask to pick him (or her) to play with ME, Lebron 6 James.

#6 - Yankees....I'm not coming unless I get top of the list dibbs, as Lebron the King James, to the new Super 'Fit for The King' suite you're about to build using these architectural plans...and it has to be ready for next season. Opening Day...I've already got a one hour special for charity on prime time 4 Letter Networks scheduled for the unveiling of that suite you're starting to build......now...oh yeah...and I want it for life...and yes...I want to buy a portion of the Yankees....and you will sell it to me...or I'm not coming and becoming a Nationals Fan! Strasburg and Zimmerman, yall...it's gonna get HOT.

#7 - I want a legal pass from the city and state that would allow ME and MY CREW to Park at the Front Entrance at any establishment, public or private, without punishment or towing with no limit to the size of our Royal Parade...

#8 - The agreement to build my own Clothing Line and Athletics Lebron 6 James store in Time Square...If you have to pay someone to remove themselves, so be it...as long as I make at least 51% of the company....and it BETTER BE AT LEAST 99% (that's two sixes upside down...it's for when I begin to multiply...my first "LB2"

#9 - Renovation of Madison Square Garden...I want it professionaly renovated, keeping a similar look to the old, new Club Level Seating for EVERY SEAT IN THE HOUSE that will my face sewn into the back rest of every seat...different expressions of course..I've got at least 100 I can do...I practice looking at myself a lot...and in the renovation, opposite of the TV cameras, at mid level.

 I want the restaurant " 6 " - A LeBron James SteakHouse, That I will donate 5 tickets to a family of 5 every home game of the year and get to eat in "A Table fit or The King" overlooking the court...That's where I want my Lifetime (to be passed down my generations) Season Tickets to be when I retire a Knick, with all our championships and MY MVPs...

#10 - I want to be allowed to buy a part of Central Park....and be allowed to build my Castle there....

Follow these Ten things...and I, if I were LeBron, would be able to make all these things happen...with the power LeBron brings...RAWRRR666

What would any team give you, if you were Lebron James?

Shopping Gilbert Arenas...is there even a Market?

So Washington is obviously heavily shopping Gilbert Arenas. The Question is, who's buying?

This comes to my attention today (not like it doesn't every day) mostly by the immediate 120$ mil offer the Hawks immediatley made to Joe Johnson. I have one thing to say about this...why? And the answer is likely an already in-place Sign and Trade between the Hawks and another party already holding the asset(s) they're going to trade. Now, I believe Johnson is a great player. But a Max Contract is a Max Contract...and I'm not so sure Johnson at his age deserves such. Will he be a great asset on a team? of course. But let's look at it with refrence to Washington. Absolutely a fantastic player to add along side #2 John Wall. According to Leonsis, however, this possibility of SnT Arenas for Johnson is counter to what Leonsis "championship build" is. Johnson is not young, and will be 34 when his contract is over. At the same time, however, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen aren't young either, but they were both in the Finals this year, as well as Champions two years prior. I'm not saying Johnson will be a champion, but I'm not saying he's not bad either. I think, in regard to Arenas, that he's left too much of a sour taste in Washington, and will never regain the Love. There's a lot of haters out there who don't fully understand Gilbert's work ethic, his talent, and how he was not the Locker Room killer that Caron Butler was. But his image is rotten in the eyes of the most powerful city in the world, let alone the world itself, and will not get the energy from the crowd that Arenas feeds in during clutch moments of the game. He's not going to be a good piece in the Wizards' puzzle any longer, and needs to be moved to avoid yet another mediocre season, at best.

Joe Johnson for Gilbert Arenas (Atlanta Hawks)- Not bad at all. Johnson could be a decent veteran leader as well as a perfect compliment to Wall's inaugural season. Joe doesn't want or need to "be the guy." Atlanta can't rely on Mike Bibby's inconsistant aging performances, and will look to add a point guard, be it future developing, or instant, such as Gilbert. The concern, same as Gilbert's, is this proposed long term contract. Now, Gilbert's is different, cause the guy has missed over 80% of the last 3 seasons' games. Johnson, at least, has more potential to produce.

Vince Carter for Gilbert Arenas (Orlando Magic)- Similar to the Joe Johnson situation, just without the extended contract. This seems to have the most "legs." Carter isn't the "Half Man Half Amazing" anymore, but he's some where around "one-fifth amazing, three-fiths man, and another-fifth aging." However, this falls into Leonsis' strategy, as it would rid of Gilbert's longterm contract, rent Vince Carter for the year (which could be traded or bought out mid-season...((highly unlikely if happens, though)) and continue to add young players through draft picks and PERHAPS convince Carmelo Anthony to leave the Nuggets and come back to his Home town. I'd say that Carmelo is on a more elite level than Johnson, so the age thing wouldn't be an issue. Carmelo's attitude and immaturity at times (which we already have problems with Blatche) might not be the best way, but you can't doubt the fan support  and skills Carmelo will bring to the Phone Booth. The Magic have Jameer Nelson, but he disappeared in the late round of the playoffs, and that sent red flags to management. But, Gilbert wouldn't replace Jameer, he's act as the two guard and swing over time to time, where he can be most effective. Gilbert hasn't really had a true big man to work with (Haywood was always "developing") so not much would be known how much 'better' he could be in production ((if healthy and not threatening teammates with illegal firearms)) along side Dwight Howard.

Yao Ming for Gilbert Arenas (Houston Rockets)- Yao opted for his 17+ mil contract a few days ago, keeping him out of free agency and on the Rockets Roster. The Rockets, however, are interested in the acquisition of Chris Bosh (Bosh's first visit this morning, July 1st) Bosh has been rumored to be enticed by returning to his home state, and enjoying the tax freeness of Texas. With a current front court of Aaron Brooks and Kevin Martin, why would Arenas and his contract be added? Well, Rick Adelman isn't and hasn't been pushing a slow down and let the Center Jam it In There kinda coach in my eyes watching Houston play, so removing Yao, adding Gilbert and Bosh, and making a move for Brendan Haywood while retaining Scola with Bird rights may be what Adelman is shooting for. Sure, brooks or Martin may take a back seat, or maybe Adelman will force Arenas to compete for the job...who knows. Yao in DC, alongside former teammate Yi Jianlian (who would likely play a perimeter role more than anything else as a PF) would only be for a year, if his Foot(s) ((feet I know)) allow him too. Perhaps even convincing Shaquille O'Neal to play for a Mid Level Exception with Yao and Wall this season would be interesting. The Two biggest Center's on one squad. Shoot, while we're add it, sign Shawn Bradley, who's rumored to be working on a return, just for a league minimum season. We've got that history in DC with the late Manute Bol and the frequently visiting George Murisan. 

Andrew Bynum and Sasha Vujacic for Gilbert Arenas (Los Angelas Lakers)- Why not send Gilbert out to LA where he can get into all the trouble he wants and fit right in with all the Hollywood attention he craves and desires constantly? With the high probability of Phil Jackson retiring, the Lakers need to be considering the actual future of the team. Right now Derek Fisher and Jordan Farmar or Shannon Brown aren't great options of any sort, and they still win a championship. With Kobe Bryant, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, and Pau Gasol locked in the starting lineup, Bynum and Vujacic are expendable large contracts for LA to use on a skilled point guard. Kobe doesn't need a guy that creates shots well for others (although Gilbert shown he had improved greatly for the small showcase last season, averaging over 7 assists) but he does want a lights out shooter that draws a lot of attention from defense, and that's exactly what Gilbert does. Bynum has proven he has elite potential, but he's still going to be a back up to Gasol, which is the true champion center. When on the floor together, Bynum's numbers are nearly half his production. They don't perform well together, and Bynum's contract is near hellish for an injury prone backup. Sasha has this last year left on his contract of near worth of 6$ mil. You have Kobe Bryant, he's his own sixth man. Bringing in Sasha and Bynum to Washington, giving them starting positions and getting them the experience an opportunity to reach full potential is exactly what Leonsis wants to do in building the future of the Wizards. I can't think of a better situation for Washington, as long as Bynum stays healthy. What a lineup 2011-2012 would be if we were to acquire Melo. Wall, Vujacic/Hinrich, Anthony, Blatche (meh...), Bynum. That is youth and talent, as well as defense (not from Blatche's part, obviously) Perhaps Trevor Booker will become a monster. 

David Lee and Eddy Curry (and a future pick(s)) for Gilbert Arenas and SnT Mike Miller and Andray Blatche New York Knicks - I know, I know, you see Eddy Curry and cringe...but you gotta take a little to get a little. The Knicks desperately need a point guard, and why not one with a criminal record? (just kidding, NY) Taking away Curry's contract is well worth giving in to Gilbert's Contract. Mike Miller would be sign and traded (11$millish) (despite how much I wish we could keep him) to match the cost of Lee's expected 13-16 million contract and Curry's. Curry's contract is only for the year...and you NEVER KNOW, he might swith it on so that someone other than the Mexican Basketball Association ((no, there's no such thing)) offers him a contract next season...But the big piece is obviously David Lee. I'm not sure about him, as I can't lie and say I even watched a full knicks game this season, and when I was watching the bits,  I wasn't only looking for what Danilo Gallinari can do. But, by the numbers (and the hype) a young 20-10+ guy ((even though it's in D'Antoni's run n gone offense favoring those numbers (((which doesn't make sense to me...who cares why it happens, it still happens))) can't hurt. And he'd obviously be a better option than Andray Blatche.

 So....there are some decent options for different teams...I hope ANY of these bite...but if they don't, I don't doubt at all that Gilbert will do everything he can to be a winner for Washington. If it comes to it, have Faith, DC, have fatih Wizards fans, keep up the PURE ENERGY, and let the age of Wall begin...

Or we could convince LeBron James or Dwyane Wade to come to DC....but I'm not touching that with a twelve foot alligator.
