How the offseason SHOULD play out

So after hearing Amar'e might join D-Wade and co. in that super-Free Agent meeting, here is how I think the offseason, mainly in terms of free agency, should play out...

First the moves:

Dwyane Wade will re-sign in Miami, but he won't be alone. Chris Bosh will either be signed straight out or be part of a sign and trade involving Michael Beasley allowing Miami more flexibility for their bench.

Toronto will then trade Hedo Turkoglu, but this one I can't figure out exactly. Maybe a swap with either Andre Iggoudala or Elton Brand from the 76ers? Or even a trade to Portland for Joel Przybilla and Rudy Fernadez (giving Jose Calderon another Spaniard to be buddies with while Andrea Bargnani and Marco Belinelli are the Italian buddies)? I'm sure more fillers will be involved and Bryan Colangelo will be on it.

Of the remaining super free agents, Joe Johnson will re-join Amar'e Stoudemire, whom will both re-join Mike D'antoni in New York.

Tracy McGrady might resign with the Knicks to join the two.

After that, the Knicks and the Wizards might then be tempted with a trade involving swapping Gilbert Arenas and Eddy Curry.

And after that, David Lee will be the odd-man-out and end up signing with New Jersey.

Dirk Nowitzki, Yao Ming, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Tyson Chandler, Kenyon Martin, and Richard Jefferson will all end re-sign with their current teams (whether with their current contract or new ones).

Michael Redd will be picked up by any team down the line, but not sure who...just not the Bucks. Maybe Chicago with Rose? They don't really have a SG anyways, Kirk Hinrich can't play that position forever.

And the last piece? LeBron James signs with the Clippers....


And then the results that will follow:

LeBron vs Kobe 4 times a year in Hollywood will be more interesting than a 7-game series NBA Finals showdown because...

LeBron James and Blake Griffin vs. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in the NBA Finals will be more interesting, LeBron James vs Kobe Bryant in the Western Conference Finals will be the 2nd most interesting event. Both of which can occur in the same playoffs. Not forgetting other series such as Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh against Rajon Rondo and the Big 3.

New York will miss out on LeBron, but they can get up to 4 big names all running the D'antoni fun-n-gun system. Whether that system will bring wins or not, it will bring back the fans since there be two high-powered scorers and two fun-n-gun veterans running it. Entertaining basketball, which the media will eat up as they will compare the fast-paced team of the East (Knicks) and the fast-paced team of the West (Suns).

By the way, Wizards might just move Arenas because they will draft John Wall, in case you didn't figure it out already.

David Lee will finally pair up with a true center in Brook Lopez, while their draft pick (most likely Derrick Favors) develops behind the pair.


What do you guys think? Dream or possible reality?
