My Thoughts on 2010 Free Agency
WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on everyone? I’m still out in China with Nike Basketball. I’m gonna give a more detailed update when I get back, but I had to mention my basketball clinic at the base of the Great Wall of China. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be participating in something like that.
Here are some more photos from the trip so far.
Man, I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep up with all the free agency talk and speculation. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all a big guessing game and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re still weeks away! Really, it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t come as a surprise because this is going to be one of the biggest years for free agents in a long time. Even my grandma is asking about it!
Obviously youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got arguably the best player in the game, LeBron James, set to be a free agent and Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and Dirk Nowitzki right up there as well. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of guys who are going to be free agents this summer that everyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to want on their teams, but not just the big names. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Matt Barnes, Jason Kapono, Kyle Korver, guys like that. And you really canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t overlook those guys.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to be interesting to see where everyone go. With so many free agents itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of like a video game, just choosing guys you want on your team. It should be fun to watch and when you throw the draft in there it should be an entertaining summer all around. You just never know whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to happen, where LeBron might go or if he and D-Wade are going to team up or if three of them might team up, so you never know.
As a player IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to look to see where those guys are going and then say something like, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœwell weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve played those guys four times and now weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll only see them twice.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ So as players weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all anxious to see where everyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to go.
As far as my take on where some players might end up, I think D-Wade is going to stay in Miami, I think Bosh will go join him in Miami and I think with LeBronÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s either Chicago or Cleveland. Now, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just what I think. Just my guesses. Of course, you never know.
And I know all of you have your own opinions and theories on where players will end up, so let me know whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on your mind in my comments section.
