Question: Did you ever have your heart broken as a fan when a star for your favorite sports team was traded or decided to sign with another team? And/Or: What do you make of LeBron James’ decision to leave his home town and sign with a rival team?
The Warriors and Knicks have agreed in principle to a sign-and-trade deal that would send power forward David Lee to Golden State for Anthony Randolph, Ronny Turiaf and Kelenna Azubuike, multiple sources confirmed on Thursday. According to one source, the terms of Lee’s contract have been agreed to, the paperwork has been completed and all that’s needed are the pertinent signatures. Oh, and one other thing: LeBron James needs to make it official tonight that he’s not signing with the Knicks. At this point, indications are that he won’t. But the Knicks want to make sure/Matt Steinmetz, CSN Bay Area. More here. (AP file photo of ex-Zag Ronny Turiaf, with Golden State Warriors)
Question: Do you still follow the fortunes of former Gonzaga Bulldog Ronny Turiaf?

MikeK (via Facebook): I hope LeBron chooses the Vision Quest U-12 Girls basketball team in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. There would need to be a few policy changes (you, know gender and stuff) but I think the attendance would go up and we’d win those close tournament games. Fingers crossed!
Question: LeBron James, the brightest among the free agent stars in the NBA, will announce tonight during on a sports television program, which team he’ll sign with, probably for the next 5 or 6 years. Some say he’ll remain with Cleveland. Others that he’ll move to Miami. Either way, do you think we’ve reached a point of no return when a free agent can command a television program to announce his decision?
