LeBron James could not have ingratiated himself to Mikhail Prokhorov or the Players Association for that matter Thursday when he spoke about the consequences of contraction.

"Just imagine if you could take Kevin Love off Minnesota and add him to another team," he said. "Or, looking at some of the teams that's not that great, you take Brook Lopez or you take Devin Harris off these teams that's not that good right now and add 'em to a team that could be really good.

"I'm not saying, 'Let's take New Jersey, let's take Minnesota out of the league'," he added. "But, hey you guys are not stupid. I'm not stupid. I know what would be great for the league."
