I hope LeBron can speak Russian.... 

Post#1 » by DowJones » Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:09 pm

It sounds like some Russian Oil men are talking with Bruce Ratner about buying the Nets. It sounds like the Brooklyn deal is as good as done, which should be no surprise considering the state of the Economy right now. So does LeBron still make the move to New Jersey to play for the Nets? Just wondering.

Bruce Ratner is selling the team BECAUSE he can't get the Brooklyn deal done. Nets are stuck in Jersey for a long time and certainly not before 2011 at the earliest.

That is why I thought it was silly that everyone felt LeBron was a lock for the Nets. I guess the focus for ESPN will be to get LeBron to the Knicks now.

Yeah, I thought you said it was "done" as in a done deal. My bad.

The rumors will exist for the next 2 years and people will post about them for the next 2 years even though they always say how "annoyed" they are by them. If they're so annoyed, don't post about it. We will see what happens 2 summers from now.

We'll figure it out when the time comes....To early to tell.

There's a thread about the possibility of Wade, Bosh and LeBron switching teams, somewhere on the 1st or 2nd page of this board, please use that one.

Thanks!
