Perhaps the Cavaliers loss to the Celtics wasn't as horrible as first thought?
The perfect companion: Chris Bosh
Bosh hits every checkmark on the list above. He's an outstanding midrange shooter who would provide a fearsome weapon on the pick-and-pop, something James has never really had in Cleveland. His Offensive rebound Rate (9.9 percent) was in the top third of power forwards, which is amazing considering how often he played outside. His Turnover Rate was in the bottom third and his TS% (59.2) was outstanding.

In the article, Hollinger uses several metrics to examine which players, either free agents or currently on one of the teams he's rumoured to be considering, would make great complementary teammates for James.
Bosh topped all of Hollinger's criteria edging out the likes of Amar'e Stoudemire, Dirk Nowitzki, Carlos Boozer and David Lee.
Not a great teammate for LeBron or anyone else?
Over the past week we've gotten numerous reports from both media, and fans in Orlando, that Hedo's been partying it up down there. In fact he's apparently been "living" at a certain Orlando nightclub named 23.
Maybe Hedo thinks he can channel Jordan by hanging out there as much as possible?
Larry Hughes understands that the chances of him returning to the Knicks next season are slim to none. Unfortunately, the same may be true of one Hughes' best friends as well.
Hughes reiterated Wednesday that he believes LeBron James, the Knicks' primary free agent target, will re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers when James becomes a free agent next summer.
"I still feel that way," Hughes said following the Knicks' practice in Greenburgh, N.Y. "He's got a good opportunity to win there. And I know a lot of people talk about him playing in a big market, but he just wants to win a ring. It's not about playing in a big market."
Hughes speaks regularly to his former teammate with the Cavs and maintains that James is content with the direction of the club.
Ignore the impending Boozer rumors. Has Joe Dumars set the Pistons up nicely for the Summer of Lebron?
