Yeah…Amazing Promise: “Yet even with the denials, this story has persisted because it holds such amazing promise. The Heat are concocting a genuinely revolutionary plan for this summer, holding no loyalty to their roster beyond Wade and hoping that James and Bosh will have the vision to see the possibilities of a triple superstar alliance.
If this happens, all that talk about 2010 being a disappointment would fly out the window, because we would get a genuinely new type of NBA team. Three superstars have paired together before, but it’s always happened organically through the draft. The Heat would essentially be plucking two bona fide All-Stars — one of whom is the best player in the world — from other teams to create a supergroup, almost like Real Madrid’s Galacticos experiment in European soccer. Plug in your superstars with little regard for how they might fit together, pick up role players to link everyone up, and hope that what looks amazing on paper translates to several championships.” [Eric Freeman/The Baseline]

Plan B: “If LeBron and the Cavs cannot swing a sign-and-trade with one of those [big-named] guys, they can still go aggressively after Andre Iguodala. AI2 is the one guy who I think would be a perfect pair with LeBron James, giving the Cavs the kind of dominance at the wings that few teams could match. He would also be a good fit in the triangle should the Cavs choose Shaw, a guy who can pass and dribble as well as be an offensive threat.” [Cavs HQ]
A change of pace in Berea: “Encouragingly, Delhomme has gained the confidence of the locker room, has been productive in meetings and on the practice field and displays a calm swagger which reflects his confidence. Furthermore, Delhomme has been the polar opposite of those before him – in practice, he has been accurate and throws a very catch-able ball.
Does this all translate to stability at the position? Hard to tell at this early time, and with Delhomme being 36-years of age, he is on the downside of his career. But, a team like the Browns need a positive, stabilizing piece at the game’s most important position for the development of the rest of the roster.” [Lane Adkins/The OBR - S/R]
