As most of you probably know, I was the biggest Bron to the Nets advocate on these boards, and.............I was wrong. As is such, I feel compelled to write one last post to ''get it out of my system''(as is something we do from time to time in life). Let me first say that I know we have a core of exciting young players with a promising future, and a coach that will(surely) be successful in molding them into a team. We have 2(yes, 2) owners who are committed to winning, and hopefully the fans will be patient, and give them a chance to see what they can do. Hopefully, we hire the right GM to lead the team into the future. However, I feel the need to mention Bron simply because we all know if this team moves in the direction we all expect it to, and he does not win championships in Miami, he will look our way. I'm sure i'll hear the ''you're delusional'', ''get over it'', and ''move on'', etc. comments, and that is fine, but let's be honest: if we weren't going to Brooklyn, I would not be bringing this up. However, we all know Brooklyn is his favorite borough. Let me just bring up a few points to close:
Jay-Z. No one can blame Jay for this. He did all he could to get Bron here. What's funny is that he said in June he wasn't going to influence Bron as to whether or not he should come here, yet he spent some extra time trying to convince him to come here. I find that fascinating.
Chris Paul. The Hornets PG fired his agent, is a close friend of Bron, and is in the same management or business company(whichever it is) with him. I have seen a lot of posts on here that Paul might be here in the not-too-distant future, and while I agree, you know the speculation will start up again if Paul continues to make this team better.
Bron's contract. If he puts an opt-out clause in his new deal in Miami, you know hs thinking is ''I hope this works, but if not, there's always Brooklyn..............''. I get the feeling he will.
Bron's ego. Sure, he took less money to win and play with Wade and Bosh, and he might win a title down there, but you don't think he'll want to be the man or the ''King'' again? I say, whether or not he does, he'll definitely want that chance to lead again.
Yes, it is time to move on, but, no matter how we feel about him, where he went, or whether we wanted him or not, we'll all be curious and watching the Heat to see how he does. If they are successful, he'll probably stay and see the Miami ''experiment'' out. However, if the Heat are unsuccessful, like it or not, the talk will begin again. We may not want it, we may not care, but after what happened to the organization this off-season(so far), Prokhorov and Jay knows they cannot make the same mistake again, if they ever get the chance. So, while we move on, and look forward to this exciting young team, we also know that, depending on how Miami does, the King in Brooklyn may not be that far away.................................
