ESPN starting to come along,
Broussard's tweet 2 hours ago: "CHI-MIAMI emerging as frontrunners for LJ. CLE not dead, but..."
Broussard's tweet 22 hours ago: "CHI-CLE still neck and neck for LJ, but CHI making it awfully hard on Cavs"
Broussard....much like SAS and essentially every other national media guy....has flip flopped on the hottest new rumor from day to day. Using some trite saying like "where there's smoke there's fire" doesn't provide evidence or a solid argument. The better saying for this free agency period would be "where there's smoke there's WWW" anyway.
Just listen to the Stephen A. interview. I'm serious, if you're a fan of basketball, do it. It's a must listen.
He's laying it all on the line with major conviction. It's unreal.
In my head, he's uncovered something and now Broussard (who's always said the Bulls, no Heat mention) is now all of a sudden
saying the heat are frontrunners!? Something is up!
Here is the problem I have with his report. He received it from a source, ok.. I can buy that.
BUT... I just find it hard to believe that any sources would leak back to SAS 3 days prior to all the FA fanfare, courting and fluff stuff.
Certainly, they could have talked ( wade, lb, Bosh) but considering they can't speak to to teams ( and I know there are back channels) there is alot out there that is still to be discussed. Both as a group ( wade, lb, bosh) and individually $$$ wise.
My guess would be these rumors are coming from a legit sources, but they are less set in stone-type that SAS is spouting and just a planned leak to keep the frenzy and options alive, and those teams not in this report to do even more to try to land these guys.
