My email to Bill Simmons I titled: LeBron Delusions




I know, I know LeBron would probably never pick rainy, hipster-mecca Portland as his new home to play, but please tell me I'm not crazy for thinking Portland should still give it a shot. I know there are only a few teams really in the running, but I also know we all actually don't know anything really....

The big pitch is LaMarcus, LeBron and Lillard all on the same team. That's freaking scary! LeBron would have to do significantly less then he has had to do the last two years in Miami. With Wes Matthews splashing kick out threes. Lopez blocking fools in the paint, we resign Mo and him and LeBron are reunited. Blazers sign Hawes or Frye with the MLE to further surround LBJ and LMA with three shooters. Instant. Contender.

The trick would be getting Miami to agree to a sign and trade which is possibly even more unlikely then LeBron moving into Nike's backyard. But we could maybe find a team(s) looking for assets assets assets, like say Philadelphia, Utah, Milwaukie Ect. and offer dumps of Batum, Thomas Robinson, CJ McCollum, Joel Freeland, Will Barton (all relatively young players who have shown good promise or in Batum and Freeland's cases a solid and bankable role). Then tell Miami we have this or these trades in order to clear space for signing LeBron to near max, but we can do a sign and trade of Batum, Robinson McCollum and a pick for James and they get 4 assets for LeBron rather then nothing.

Am I delusional a bit? You bet ya, but tell me I'm not crazy in hoping my Blazers try something like this.
