And in case it comes up again: Bosh-to-OKC has zero chance of happening for more reasons than I can list in 140 characters.
I know the guy gets crap for "Kobe will never play for the Lakers again", but Kobe Bryant told him that, so how can you blame the guy for going public with it?
I'd love to know what reasons he has for believing this about the Thunder. Does he think Bosh isn't interested, that the Thunder won't spend the money, or both?
Personally, I think the primary reason is that the Thunder don't want to be big players in this FA period. The new CBA is going to dramatically lower contracts and as a small market team, I don't think they want to get locked into a 20 million per year deal right before the new CBA starts limiting these deals to 14-15 million a season instead for the level two max guys.
In that sense, I don't predict that OKC is a threat for any top tier 2010 FAs.
Either way, good news for Bulls fans who may have been concerned with the Thunder as an option for Bosh.
Looks like it's Miami or Chicago with a real outside shot of LA.
